This Weeks stretch of games are pivotal in Conference Race

Just 6 games remain on the Big 12 schedule. Kansas still remains the league leader, sitting atop the conference heap with a 10-2 record. Texas Longhorns look as of now to be the lone preceder of threatening Kansas of their 10th straight conference crown. With a 9-3 record, Texas sits 1 game back, and a tougher stretch of games loom over them until season's end.

Much of the reason why teams such as Iowa State, Oklahoma, and K-State. Are all out of the picture for right now is because all of them contain 5 blemishes on their record. With those teams being 3 games back of the pack from Kansas, with just 6 games remaining on schedule. Provides a stiff block in the road for those teams to pass.

We now know a little bit more of who the contenders and pretenders are in the conference race. So now it's time to sort out the importance of this week's games. Tuesday Night, not only does Kansas travel into one of the most surprising teams in Big XII play this season, Texas Tech Red Raiders in Lubbock. Texas Longhorns, (Jayhawks main threat) settles into a duel with Iowa State in Ames. The reason tomorrow's match-ups are vital for Kansas is that. With a win over Tubby Smith's Texas Tech squad and a potential loss by Texas in Ames. Bodes well for Kansas as it puts themselves in great position to open things up even more this Saturday in Allen Fieldhouse. Where the rematch of Texas, will raise the stakes even higher.

If all goes well for Kansas. A rematch win over the Longhorns will give Kansas a 3 game lead with 4 games left in the conference marathon. Meaning either 1 win by Kansas, or another loss by Texas. Locks 10 in a row for the Jayhawks.

Looking at the road games in Stillwater and Morgantown, that are still at the end of KU schedule. I wouldn't mind clinching the Conference before we play in potential trap games to end the season. Because Kansas was victim of that last year as they fell flat on their face in Waco. Thus coughing up the chance to win the Big XII outright. A lot of important games linger on team's schedule. But, this week is a golden opportunity for Kansas to separate themselves from everyone else in standings.
