The Kansas Jayhawks are 0-7 against the Baylor Bears since October of 2015, but they’ll have a chance to close the gap a little bit on Saturday. The Jayhawks and Baylor will face off in a Big 12 battle at noon ET at McLane Stadium. Keep an eye on the score for this one: both teams posted some lofty points totals in their previous games, so things might heat up even more when they meet.
Kansas came up short against the Oklahoma Sooners last week, falling 52-42. Kansas was down 49-28 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. Despite the defeat, they had strong showings from QB Jason Bean, who passed for four TDs and 265 yards on 27 attempts in addition to picking up 41 yards on the ground, and WR Lawrence Arnold, who caught five passes for two TDs and 113 yards. That receiving effort made it the first game that Arnold has posted more than 100 yards receiving.
Meanwhile, it was close but no cigar for Baylor as they fell 43-40 to the West Virginia Mountaineers last Thursday. Baylor’s loss came about despite a quality game from WR Gavin Holmes, who caught seven passes for one TD and 210 yards.
Kansas is expected to lose this next one by 9. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 3-0-1 against the spread when expected to lose.
The losses put the Jayhawks at 5-2 and the Bears at 3-3. A couple offensive stats to keep an eye on: Kansas enters the contest with 37 overall offensive touchdowns, good for third best in the nation. Baylor has displayed some offensive firepower of their own as they rank 14th in the nation when it comes to rushing touchdowns, with 18 on the season.

Bears are gonna do it. A 28-3 lead evaporates but a late TD and fourth down stop are gonna push Baylor to 4-3.

Baylor answers with a TD.

35-23 with 2:37 to play.
Big time response keyed by Reese. Defense needs a quick stop or slow them down and we get a happy homecoming.

6:29 to go and the bears offense needs to make something happen. Fully in the danger zone if KU gets the ball back. 28-3 lead all but gone right now. Can Bears respond?

Lemear really starting to get it. Big play there on first down.
Gotta make that catch for your QB on third down. Bears punting.
Just what we needed.

Jereme Robinson strip sack leads to the Devin Neal TD. Now 28-10 with 7:35 to play in Q3.
