The two best teams in the Big 12 may just be playing on Saturday in Lawrence.
TCU is 4-0 and coming off a 29-point win over Oklahoma. It will be a slippery slope for the undefeated Horned Frogs Oklahoma State at home next weekend. New head coach Sonny Dykes and quarterback Max Dagan were an unstoppable tandem for TCU. The Frogs lead the nation in rushing yards per game (8.33). Yes, that’s ahead of Ohio State and Florida State. Duggan leads all QBs with a 202.18 rating, which is comparable to what Mack Jones did at Alabama in 2020 and what Joe Burrow did at LSU in 2019. But Kansas will be able to hang on.
The Jayhawks are the biggest surprise in college football right now. They’re undefeated under coach Lance Leipold — a hot candidate to move to Nebraska or Wisconsin given the turnaround in Lawrence. The Jayhawks have won a total of five games in the past three seasons combined, and the last time they had five wins was in 2009.
Kansas is 5-0 against the spread (ATS), averaging 15 points per game. The Horned Frogs have already cashed in, going from -5 to -7, but if I were betting this game I’d be looking more like 67.5.
These are prolific offenses and porous defenses. If Kansas can keep up — and nothing in TCU’s defensive profile suggests they will — it should sail away in a wild 42-38 type situation.
