Kansas heads to the Big 12 South and Norman this week for a battle with the Boomer Sooners.
Everything changed last weekend in the Big 12 with both Missouri and Oklahoma falling to the upset bug that has been going around college football and now Kansas sits on top of a wide open Big 12 North. The Jayhawks could put themselves in the drivers seat with a victory in Norman not to mention catapult themselves and probably Todd Reesing into the national spotlight.
So will we get to hear "they've gotta say we played somebody" or will Kansas come out of Norman with the second loss of the season? What can we expect from the offense/defense and special teams headed into this huge matchup and who wins these battles?

Final Thoughts...Kansas is the underdog and on paper doesn't win this game, but as the saying goes, that's why they play the game. OU has shown it is prone to being upset and with a relaxed Jayhawk team that has nothing to lose Kansas could continue the trend. Mark Mangino will have this team focused on OU as any other team it plays and take things one week at a time. My hope is we keep it close, build some confidence, and "The Reesing" pulls another rabbit out of the hat late for the win.
