Kansas Football: Three Ways for the Jayhawks to Defeat Texas

Kansas and Texas face-off on Saturday in Lawrence, for the annual Jayhawks homecoming game. Here are three ways, Kansas can pull of the upset of Texas.

1. No turnovers on offense: Freshman quarterback Michael Cummings threw two interceptions last week as he got the start for Kansas. For the Jayhawks to win here, they need this total to decrease by two. No fumbles, no interceptions.

2. Run the ball: Kansas has a great trio of running backs, for them to win here, James Sims, Taylor Cox, and Tony Pierson need to get carries. Rushing the football will keep the dominant Texas offense off the field. So run the ball and do it with success will help matters. Sims is the main guy for this Jayhawks offense, he needs to shine.

3. Throw the Deep Ball: In Texas’s two previous losses to West Virginia and Oklahoma, the opposing quarterbacks had considerable success beating the Texas defense through the air. Last week, Baylor quarterback Nick Florence passed for 352 yards in a loss. Can Cummings be the next in line?
