A look at news and notes about Jayhawks and upcoming opponents...

My Thoughts...Well I wouldn't be able to consider myself a Kansas fan if I ever picked against us in the Border War so don't expect an unbiased opinion on this one.

Against Texas the Kansas defense came out inspired and performed admireably against an impressive and balanced attack led by Colt McCoy. This week in the final Border War for this linebacker corps I expect and equal showing but what will make this week different is the offense will be there to support it.

Missouri's defense is by no means the Longhorns and Todd Reesing and the Jayhawks will get back on track, back up their defense and give them the support they need to maintain a strong showing throughout the game. Make no mistake your not going to shutdown Chase Daniel but Kansas needs to find a way stop the big play and create a couple turnovers.

All said and done Kansas is a better team than their record indicates and they put together their first complete four quarter performance of the year upsetting the Missouri Tigers.

Final Score: Kansas 35 Missouri 31
