The Kansas Jayhawks are 0-7 against the Baylor Bears since October of 2015, but they’ll have a chance to close the gap a little bit Saturday. Kansas is on the road again Saturday and plays against Baylor at noon ET Oct. 22 at McLane Stadium. Keep an eye on the score for this one: both teams posted some lofty points totals in their previous games, so things might heat up even more when they meet.

The Jayhawks came up short against the Oklahoma Sooners last week, falling 52-42. Kansas was down 49-28 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. Their loss shouldn’t obscure the performances of QB Jason Bean, who passed for four TDs and 265 yards on 27 attempts in addition to picking up 41 yards on the ground, and WR Lawrence Arnold, who caught five passes for two TDs and 113 yards. That receiving effort made it the first game that Arnold has posted more than 100 yards receiving.

Meanwhile, it was a hard-fought game, but Baylor had to settle for a 43-40 defeat against the West Virginia Mountaineers last Thursday. A silver lining for Baylor was the play of WR Gavin Holmes, who caught seven passes for one TD and 210 yards.

The Jayhawks are the clear underdogs, so they’re hoping it’s the size of the fight that determines this one. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 3-0-1 against the spread when expected to lose.

The losses put Kansas at 5-2 and the Bears at 3-3. A pair of offensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: Kansas ranks third in the nation when it comes to overall offensive touchdowns, with 37 on the season. Baylor has displayed some offensive firepower of their own as they come into the contest boasting the 14th most rushing touchdowns in the nation at 18.
