Kansas vs. West Virginia Open Game Thread

Richard Rowe-USA TODAY Sports

It's been a great week for the basketball team which was MUCH needed after a very frustrating start to the sports season. Today does present an opportunity for Charlie Weis at home. If we're going to break the streak it's going to have to be against someone like a West Virginia this year. I don't have overly high hopes, but I'd welcome any reason at all to have some motivation when it comes to talking Jayhawk football again.

Kansas will welcome West Virginia to Memorial Stadium for the first time ever as both squads vie for the win in a Big 12 Conference showdown Saturday at 11 a.m. The game will be televised regionally on Fox Sports Net. Kansas and West Virginia have met two times in history, both Mountaineer wins in Morgantown, but the Jayhawks will look to change their luck and snap a six-game losing streak in the process. Kansas enters the game 2-7 overall and is winless in six Big 12 contests, while West Virginia enters the game at 4-6 overall and 2-5 in Big 12 play. Five of the Mountaineers' seven Big 12 games have been decided by 10 points or less, including losses to Oklahoma, Texas Tech and last week's overtime loss to Texas.
