Kansas Jayhawks at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Open Game Thread

Welcome to the Rock Chalk Talk and your open thread for week three of the 2011 Kansas Jayhawk football season.

Kansas heads to Atlanta for their first road test of the season and a game that also represents the first game against a BCS opponent. The storyline in this one is revenge. Last year Kansas pulled the big time upset in Lawrence over a ranked Yellow Jacket team. Tech is focused on returning the favor with a home game this weekend.

Sitting at 2-0, both teams are looking to prove a point in this one. Kansas looks substantially improved from a year ago but the defense is a major cause for concern and a win in Atlanta would represent a major shift in expectations this year. For Tech it's an opportunity to show that the explosive offensive numbers in weeks one and two were a function of what Tech is capable of and not the level of competition. At the end of the day this one probably boils down to which defense steps up to the plate.
