Gameday Breakdown: KU football at No. 14 West Virginia |
The Jayhawks didn’t cross the goal line last week in a 56-3 blowout at Oklahoma. KU reached the Sooners’ red zone once, and had to settle for a first-quarter field goal. The only time the offense sniffed the end zone again came immediately following a fumble recovery by Jayhawks sophomore defensive tackle Daniel Wise, and then Kansas gave the ball right back on a Montell Cozart interception. Obviously, a repeat of that sort of offensive effort (170 total yards) won’t accomplish anything at West Virginia.

Kansas will attempt to solve West Virginia's 3-3-5 scheme |
Kansas junior quarterback Montell Cozart and the Jayhawks (1-7 overall, 0-5 Big 12) will try to solve the conference’s best defense in hostile territory Saturday night at WVU’s Milan Puskar Stadium (6 p.m. kickoff, ESPN2).

Decision week looming for 2 of KU's top 2017 targets |
Exhibition play may have started and the Jayhawks may be kicking off preparations for their Nov. 11 and Nov. 15 regular season openers against Indiana and Duke (KU coach Bill Self said the team would begin looking at Indiana today) but recruiting, as always, remains a major priority for the Kansas basketball program.
