As expected Kansas saw a noticable increase in the rushing offense that has been trending upward since the Iowa State game.  Defensively not much changed although the Jayhawks are back on the right side of the turnover magrin.

What stands out to me this week is clearly Nebraska is a middle tier team in the Big 12 in almost every category.  Kansas is much more up and down statistically and that is a little concerning depending on what team shows up in Lincoln.

  I think this game is decided because Kansas is better at stopping the run and are more potent passing the ball on offense.  The blackshirts are still on sabatical and when they return watch out but this year Kansas pulls it off and ends the streak.

Rock Chalk Jayhawk.
