Kansas Jayhawks Football Predictions: Texas Tech Red Raiders

The crew gets together to tell you what is going to happen in today's game.

NCAA Football: Texas Christian at Texas Tech Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

It's Homecoming Week for the Kansas Jayhawks, and it's the last game that was considered winnable before the season started. Can the good guys follow through and put this one in the win column?

Take a look at what our staff thinks, them put your own prediction in the comments!

Mike.Plank: By all metrics, this is KU’s last best chance at a win in 2021. Surely, the Jayhawks know this as well. KU’s offense should be fine against this Tech defense, but can the KU defense show any signs of life? If they can, this can be a close game and KU will have a chance in the end. If it’s more of what we’ve seen over the last four games, though, I don’t think the offense will be able to keep up. Texas Tech 59, Kansas 34.

Kyle_Davis21: It’s Homecoming and KU has had two weeks to prepare for this game. Surely this means the offense will have some new wrinkles to show off and the team will come out energized. But the defense does scare me. I will say Kansas keeps it close but Tech pulls away. Texas Tech 41, Kansas 31

Fizzle406: It sounds like it’s going to be a high scoring game and Kansas won’t score enough. Tech 47, Kansas 22

dnoll5: I’ll tune in for 15 minutes to see the cool uniforms, and then turn it off after Texas Tech scores at will three times in that span. Texas Tech 56, Kansas 28.

Andy Mitts: I talked about this with Albie on the podcast (go listen real quick if you haven’t), but Texas Tech just does NOT start quick at all. Yes they jumped on West Virginia early, but I actually think it’s safe to say that Kansas has a better offense than West Virginia does at this point. The Jayhawks need to score early, and I think they lean on the running game by Devin Neal and Jason Bean to get it done. The problem is that the defense won’t hold up all game long, and I don’t know that the offense can either. Call it a Homecoming miracle, but Kansas covers Texas Tech 34, Kansas 27.
