Kansas Heads-Up

Kansas football fans are going to get their first look at new offensive coordinator Brent Dearmon’s offense, which should be a nice change of pace. Dearmon was promoted a couple of weeks ago after the Jayhawks lost to Oklahoma, so he’s had the Kansas bye week to implement his system.

Expect Dearmon to call an RPO (run-pass option) heavy offense, as that is what the young coordinator is known for. Getting running back Pooka Williams out in space will be key for the Jayhawks this week, as he is the biggest playmaker on the Kansas roster.

Also, the Jayhawks will need a mistake-free game for quarterback Carter Stanley, who did play well against the Sooners a couple of weeks ago. He threw for three touchdowns and no interceptions in the home loss.

#15 Texas Heads-Up

The Longhorns are coming off of a loss to archrival Oklahoma 34-27. Losing by a touchdown to Oklahoma isn’t too shabby, but the game wasn’t as close as the score indicated. The Sooners had over 200 more yards of offense and also turned the ball over twice in the red zone.

Texas is also coming into this game pretty banged up with over 15 players listed as either out or questionable against Kansas. The lack of personnel should benefit the Jayhawks to some extent.

Quarterback Sam Ehlinger is coming into this week after going 26 of 38 for 210 yards and no touchdowns or interceptions; however, he did rush for two touchdowns. Ehlinger hasn’t looked great throwing the ball in his last two games, and hopefully, that trend will continue for Kansas.

Kansas football will come into this game as a road underdog and nothing to lose. Expect Brent Dearmon to give the Longhorns his best shot in his division one coordinating debut. Still, it probably won’t be enough to get the win for the Jayhawks over a solid team, but that doesn’t mean Kansas can’t keep it close. If the Jayhawks can keep Texas from covering the spread, that will give them some energy going into next week against Texas Tech at home, a very winnable game.
