The Jayhawks are ranked in the top five in both polls (4/5).  Kansas returns four starters and 11 lettermen from last year's squad. KU finished last season 27-9 (13-5).  The Jayhawks were unsurprisingly picked to finish first in the Big 12.

Ft. Hays State comes in after finishing 2014-15 with a 16-13 (9-10) record. The Tigers return three starters and nine letterwinners off of that squad.  FHSU was picked to finish sixth in the MIAA this season.

The Jayhawks and Tigers have met 9 times in their history with KU holding a 9-0 head-to-head advantage. All games have been played in Lawrence, with the first matchup back in 1994.  Six of the nine games have been exhibition contests.

All-time, KU is 76-9 in exhibition contests, including 44-2 under Bill Self.  The Jayhawks have won 43 straight exhibition games in Allen Fieldhouse, with the last home loss to Australia in 1993.
