Texas is trying to avoid back-to-back losses to Kansas, and the Jayhawks are trying to set a win record in the sophomore of the Lance Leipold era Saturday in a fun matchup in Lawrence, Kansas.

After missing an opportunity to pick up a top-four win over TCU last weekend, the Longhorns need to get off the mat in time to play the Jayhawks. If defense plays like it did last weekend, Texas will have an excellent shot to win the game, but the offense will need to recover from their worst performance of the year. Quarterback Quinn Ewers completed less than 50% of his passes for 171 yards and one interception, and the normally strong backfield tandem of Bijan Robinson and Roshon Johnson was held to a combined 43 yards. The Horns can’t afford another down game from their top offensive players.

Just a few weeks ago, Kansas defeated Oklahoma State to gain bowl eligibility but lost a very winnable game to Texas Tech last weekend. In that game, the Jayhawks moved the ball well, but their defense allowed the Red Raiders 43 points and 510 yards of offense. Though Texas struggled to find the end zone against TCU, Kansas can’t afford another defensive display like this this weekend. If the Jayhawks pull off the upset, it will guarantee the team’s first winning record since 2008.

Texas vs. Kansas: Three players in mind

Quinn Ewers, Texas QB: Ewers had an uneven first season in Texas. Since returning from the injury he sustained against Alabama, Ewers has struggled to maintain any kind of consistency. Last week’s loss to TCU was one of his worst performances of the year, and he has an opportunity to bounce back against a Kansas defense that allows more than 30 points a game. Ewers has all sorts of natural talents and it will be fascinating to see how he reacts to a miserable night against the Horned Frogs.

Devin Neal, Kansas RB: Lance Leipold immediately revised this Kansas offense, and Neal was the beneficiary of the new scheme. Neal has successfully emerged as the Jayhawks’ leader in 2022. He is fifth in the Big 12 with 951 rushing yards and his seven rushing touchdowns rank eighth. Equally impressive is that Neal was efficient with his carries, averaging 6.7 yards per attempt. If the Texas defense can’t stop Neal, it’ll be a long day for the Longhorns.

Barryn Sorrell, Texas EDGE: It might have been an ugly night for the Texas offense against TCU, but it was the complete opposite for defense. Sorrell led a spectacular display of the Longhorns’ pass rush that overwhelmed Max Duggan from start to finish. In that game alone, Sorrell had 11 tackles, 3.0 tackles for losses and a sack. If he can replicate that performance against Kansas, then anyone who starts as quarterback for the Jayhawks will have a sore Sunday morning.

These teams have both taken tough losses and it’s been difficult to trust either of them lately. Texas is the better team on paper but failed to deliver their best game for the full 60 minutes. Kansas is clearly one of the most improved teams in the country, but there are still deficiencies, particularly on the defensive side of the ball. Texas defense was extremely impressive last week and I doubt the offense is that bad two weeks in a row. The Longhorns will avoid back-to-back losses against Kansas, but the Jayhawks are covering at home. Forecast: Kansas +9
