Staff Picks: Kansas State at Kansas

Will anyone pick the Jayhawks to upset the Wildcats in the rivalry game? I wouldn’t count on it.

The Sunflower Showdown is the longest running rivalry in the Big 12, and that’s about as interesting as this game is going to get. The Jayhawks haven’t scored a point in their last two outings, and are a major, 24.5-point underdog to the Wildcats. Let’s get the formalities underway.

CHRIS – Do I really need to explain why? Take away the Jayhawk’s final two, garbage time drives against TCU and they have a total of negative four yards in the game. KSU isn’t TCU, but they don’t have to be to beat the Jayhawks.

JAY – No need to elaborate. The over-under on total yards for Kansas should be at 100.

MYERS – Basketball season is almost here, Jayhawk fans.

TAYLOR – Don’t be surprised to see the Jayhawks get blanked for the 3rd week in a row.

JOSH – Jayhawks avoid two shutouts in a row and cover the spread. Wildcats play solid though to get comfy win

DANIEL – They’re playing Kansas. Do you really need a reason?

Unfortunately for Kansas, no one really expects this to be much of a game, even with the rivalry factor considered. Twitter seems to agree as well as the Wildcats brought in a whopping 91 percent of the vote.
