This week Kansas welcomes Mike Leach and the Texas Tech Red Raiders to Lawrence for homecoming.
This game is HUGE as far as Kansas' season goes. A win this week and the Jayhawks should feel good about their chances of playing for the Big12 North Title in Arrowhead at the end of the season. Lose this game and it's certainly not out of the questions but we do give up the ground that Missouri has yielded early in the conference slate.
So what should we expect? Two offensive juggernauts take the field saturday and you have to wonder does either defense stand a chance? or do we see a shootout between Todd Reesing and Graham Harrel?

Final Take...I expect this one to be a shootout but the Jayhawks are going to be fired up and hungry for a big win. This would be Coach Mangino's first win over a top 10 team at home during his tenure and would signal another step in building the program.
I think we see the ball move early and often and whatever team can capitalize on the mistakes of the others will win this game. In the end Coach Mangino will get the better of his former colleague as his team will be better disciplined, more prepared and better tested for this game.
