Fun Facts

Kansas is 0-2 against AP top-10 teams so far this season. However, the Jayhawks have still won 20 of their last 24 regular season games against AP top-10 teams, including 8 of their last 9 true road games against top-10 foes.

Kansas is 8-16 all-time against AP #1s, but is 3-2 under Bill Self.

In those 24 games against AP #1, only one has been a true road game - a Kansas victory over #1 K-State on March 8, 1958.

A Baylor win would make the Bears only the second team to take the season series from Kansas in the Bill Self era (Oklahoma State, 2018).

Kansas leads the Big 12 in scoring offense, while Baylor leads the league in scoring defense.
