Football Roundtable: Can Kansas Beat Baylor?


The Kansas Jayhawks head on the road this week to play the Baylor Bears.

Baylor is currently 3-4 overall and 0-4 in the Big 12 conference. This is a very different look for Baylor then a year ago when they had Robert Griffin III. They lost to the Iowa State Cyclones by a score of 35-21 last week.

Nick Florence is going to try to led the Baylor offense to a win over the Kansas Jayhawks, but the Kansas run game will try to perform the exact same way in which they did against the Texas Longhorns last week.

Can the Kansas Jayahwks beat the Baylor Bears and earn their first conference win?

George: If Kansas follows the same game plan as they did on Saturday vs Texas, they could get a win. I wouldn’t say they are the favorites as the game is on the road, and Baylor has the ability to light up the scoreboard, but Kansas has a shot.

Ricky: I really like Kansas’ chances in this game. Based on how the Jayhawks played against Texas, I would place them as the favorites in this game. I think Baylor is overrated this season. Their biggest offense game came against Texas and the Longhorns have shown that they can let teams score. If the run game plays like last week and the defense shuts down Nick Florence, then the Jayhawks will get their first conference win.
