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.

Pitt State comes in after finishing 2014-15 with a 20-12 (12-7) record. The Gorillas return four starters and 8 letterwinners off of that squad.  Pitt State was picked to finish fifth in the MIAA this season.

The Jayhawks and Gorillas have met 10 times in their history with KU holding a 10-0 head-to-head advantage. All games have been played in Lawrence, with the first matchup back in 1944.

All-time, KU is 75-9 in exhibition contests, including 43-2 under Bill Self.  The Jayhawks have won 42 straight exhibition games in Allen Fieldhouse, with the last home loss to Australia in 1993.
