The Horned Frogs got off to a great start last week, upending Grambling State with ease, 56-0. This week, they play their first game against a Big 12 opponent as a member of the Big 12.
Technically, Kansas is in the Big 12, but I can’t imagine this game being a very tough match for the Frogs.
After all, Kansas has only won six Big 12 games since the 2008 season.
The Jayhawks did get quite the makeover this season though, albeit not a great one. Former Notre Dame Head Coach, and NFL defensive coordinator Charlie Weis took over the struggling program, and he brought with him Fighting Irish transfer Dayne Crist.
Crist has struggled so far this year, and was a key reason Kansas lost to Rice last week. He threw two interceptions, the second with less than five minutes left in the fourth quarter. Rice’s ensuing drive led to the game-winning 45-yard field goal.
Kansas’ defense has allowed opposing offenses (South Dakota State and Rice, mind you) to total 814 yards of offense, 443 passing and 371 rushing, and score 42 points.
That doesn’t bode well for them, with the potent, dual-threat offense the Horned Frogs are bringing to Lawrence this weekend.
It should be an easy win for the Frogs, as they advance to 2-0 on the season.
