The Jayhawks are looking to improve to 2-0 for the first time since 2011.
The oddsmakers have Kansas winning by 6 today. My prediction: KU 41, CMU 21. I think the Jayhawks' defense will shine and the offense will be helped by strong field position. I'm interested to see how much the Jayhawks try to get their run game moving today.
What's everyone expecting from Peyton Bender today? Better than last week's 364-yard, 4 TD, 2 INT performance?
