Kansas opens up the 2020 season with an on-again-off-again-on-again road game turned home game against the Chanticleers of Coastal Carolina.
I know the first question that you just asked yourself. What the heck is a Chanticleer? Apparently, it is “a full time male classical vocal ensemble.” Hmm. That doesn’t seem right. Aha! Per Coastal’s own website, a Chanticleer “is a proud and fierce rooster who dominates the barnyard.”
So here we go, bird vs bird, part deux. (Too bad for them we aren’t playing in a barn.)
These two schools have met just once before, the disastrous 12-7 affair in Lawrence just last season.
Kansas is 73-50-7 all-time in season openers dating back to 1890.
KU is 5-2 in games played against Sun Belt Conference opponents.
Here are the essentials:
Coastal Carolina: 0-0, 0-0
Kansas: 0-0, 0-0
Line: KU -6.5
