→Location: Lawrence, Kan.

→Mascot: Jayhawks


→Conference: Big 12

→Record: 5-1

→Last game: Running back Jake Sharp’s two fourth-quarter touchdown runs helped put away Colorado, 30-14.

→Best player: At only 5-foot-11, 200 pounds, quarterback Todd Reesing plays big. He’s completed 71.5 percent of his passes and thrown for 1,980 yards and 15 touchdowns to just three interceptions.

→Why they could win: The Jayhawks love to air it out, which is what Texas did in its 45-35 victory over the Sooners.

→Why they could lose: Kansas hasn’t been good on the road this year, with a loss at South Florida and a near loss at Iowa State. The Jayhawks also have struggled at times defending the pass.
