Kansas travels to wacky Waco, TX, for a matchup with the Bears of Baylor. KU is 1-4 on the year with their only victory coming against FCS Rhode Island. The Jayhawks are coming off a 24-23 nailbiter against TCU in Lawrence.

Baylor is 5-0 on the year and ranked #11 in the AP Poll and #8 in the Coaches Poll. They are coming off a bye week; prior to that, the Bears snuck out of Ames, IA with a 45-42 win on a last-second field goal against Iowa State.

Baylor is coached by Jim Grobe and all of Art Briles assistants. Grobe is 115-115-1 in his 20th season overall, his first with the Bears. Previous head coaching gigs for Grobe include Ohio and Wake Forest.

It's Baylor's Homecoming game (because of course it is), and most folks expect the Bears to roll the Jayhawks. The Kansas defense has shown some improvement this year, but has gotten little to no help from the offense. The Bears haven't shown the propensity to run up the score under Grobe like they did under Briles, but make no mistake, the players are talented and the offensive scheme is the same.

Hopefully Ryan Willis will show some improvement in his second game as a starter and Kansas can give Baylor a run for their money.
