The Jayhawks and the Buffaloes take the field Saturday in a game that is critical for both teams in terms of how the season might end up.
With a tough remaining schedule Kansas has to win this week because this is a team that on paper they should beat and they don't have many of those games left. CU needs this game because they are on the ropes after two lackluster performances and confidence could continue to nose dive if they can't put something together.
So what should we expect from the offensive units/defensive units/special teams when facing eachother this week and who wins the battles?

Final Thoughts...Kansas has the edge in most scenario's during this game but it's not a big enought edge that CU can't overcome it. This will be CU's first true road test and present some unique challenges for them. Kansas will see a team more committed to the run than anyone has been this year so that will be a change for them. Overall, I expect Kansas to win but I think this game is within 10.
