The Kansas defense and special temas continue their slides into the lower portion of the NCAA ranks. Nebraska's 500+ yards of offense didn't do any favors and neither did the 45 points hung on the Hawks.
Looking at this weeks opponent Texas has the most balanced offensive attack that Kansas has and will likely face this year. They run it as effectively as the pass and they are very difficult to make one dimensional. Another scary factor is the Longhorns special teams which ranks inside the top 25 in nearly every category.
The lone sign of hope on paper for the Jayhawks is the 109th ranked pass defense that's put on the field by the Longhorns. The only downside to that stat is they have already played Mizzou, Oklahoma and Texas Tech so it can't really be as bad as it seems.
