East Tennessee State
The Buccaneers are 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 Tuesday games. East Tennessee State is 20-9-2 ATS in its last 31 road games.
The Jayhawks are 1-5 ATS in their last six games versus the Southern Conference. Kansas is 0-4 ATS in its last four Tuesday games.
The Buccaneers are certainly no pushovers after winning 24 games a season ago and their first three this season. They are a solid offensive group that plays at a slower pace but is efficient with their possessions. The Jayhawks will probably eventually figure them out, but I'm betting on it being too late to cover the two-touchdown spread here.
