Kansas travels to Waco, TX to take on the surly Baylor Bears, who just happen to be the Big 12’s highest-ranked team at the moment. Baylor is #11 in the AP Poll and #8 in the Coaches Poll.
Here are the essentials:
Kansas: 1-4, 0-2
Baylor: 5-0, 2-0

Fun fact: Kansas has never won a football game in Waco, TX.
If the Jayhawks are going to notch their first win in Waco, it will also go down as a major upset, with Kansas a five-touchdown underdog to the Bears. Kansas MUST STOP THE TURNOVERS, control the ball, and limit explosive plays by the Baylor offense in order to have a chance in this one.
KU’s road woes are becoming historic. The Jayhawks haven’t won a road game since 2009, a span of 40 games (and 37 true road games). The 37 true road games ties the Division 1 mark of futility set by Wichita State from 1964-1971. (FCS Idaho State owns the NCAA mark of 48 straight road losses.)
In addition, Kansas hasn’t won a conference road game since 2008 at Iowa State. 32 of KU’s 37 road losses are to conference foes.
Given the still-current issues that Baylor faced in the offseason, I’d really love to see these streaks end here despite how unlikely it seems.
