Iowa State at Kansas

No. 16 Kansas got a scare in its final non-conference game, and now the Jayhawks look to re-focus on Saturday at 12:30PM ET when they host Iowa State from Memorial Stadium in their conference opener.

Bet Iowa State at Kansas

The Jayhawks narrowly defeated Southern Mississippi two weeks ago, 35-28. The 28 points were the most Kansas has allowed this season on its way to a 4-0 start. Todd Reesing has thrown for 1,137 yards on the season with nine touchdowns while completing 67 percent of his passes. Reesing has targeted Kerry Meier and Dezmon Briscoe, as both have over 330 yards receiving. Toben Opururm has rushed for 320 yards and six touchdowns on the year, and has made up for the loss of Jake Sharp who has missed some time with a calf injury. Kansas currently ranks second in the Big XII in points score per-game and is third in yards per-game. On defense, the Jayhawks have allowed the third least points in the conference and rank second in the Big XII in fewest rushing yards allowed at 237.

Iowa State is off to a 3-2 start, but dropped a 24-23 decision to Kansas State last weekend in its conference opener. Thy Cyclones already have matched their highest win total in the last three seasons with first-year coach Paul Rhoads, thanks in part to the Cyclones rushing attack, which is tops in the Big XII with 1,038 yards. Alexander Robinson has 502 yards and four touchdowns on the ground for ISU while Austen Arnaud has 322 yards with five scores. In the passing game, Arnaud has thrown for 787 yards and six touchdowns, but completed just 53 percent of his passes. Defensively, Iowa State ranks in the bottom of the conference in both passing yards and rushing yards allowed.

Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made Kansas 19.5-point home favorites over Iowa State on Saturday afternoon. The over/under total for this game has been established at 58.
