Today, the Kansas Jayhawks welcome back a former Big 12 foe in the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Can these be the visitors that finally come in and run Bill Self’s Allen Fieldhouse losses into the double digits? Read what our writing staff thinks, and don't forget to give us a prediction of your own down in the comments.
Jakebogen95: It’s a showdown between our Jayhawks and Big 12 traitors, Nebraska Cornhuskers. Well, I sound salty, but I couldn’t care less what Nebraska does. Kansas is going to be running roughshod. What we have come to love is Frank Mason’s pitbull attitude and the growth of Josh Jackson. I fully expect Kansas to win this game. Nebraska has already lost four games. Kansas might be the best team in the country so this game might get ugly quickly. Kansas 98, Nebraska 72
mikeville: So not knowing anything about Nebrasketball this year, I looked up their schedule, and… yeah. They still suck. I have a feeling this is going to look a lot like the UMKC game. Yeah they hung with UCLA and only lost by nine, but that’s about the only impressive thing on their resume. I think this will be over by halftime. Kansas 95, Nebraska 70.
KU Grad 08: Braskie pants will be good enough to stick around. They are young, but Miles is emphasizing defense this year (per some articles I read online). I don’t think we’ll score like we have lately, but Nebraska doesn’t have the weapons to pull off the upset in the Phog. Kansas 76, Nebraska 64.
dnoll5: Does Nebraska have Erik Piatkowski? No. Do they have Mikki Moore? Nope. Is Danny Nee the coach? Uh-uh. I guess they’re screwed. Kansas 88, Nebraska 68.

misterbrain: There isn't really much to analyze here. Unfortunately, like much of the Kansas non-conference schedule this year, this game looked much more difficult last season. Despite the Carlton Bragg suspension, Kansas just has way too much. Kansas 94, Nebraska 72.
