Kansas Jayhawks Game Notes
Kansas quarterback Jason Bean has missed the team’s last two games with a head injury, but he’s probable to play in this weekend’s road tilt with Cincinnati. Jayhawks head coach Lance Leipold noted that Bean was cleared to play against Kansas State last weekend, but the lack of practice time with the first team led the coaches to hold him out of the game. Bean has thrown for 1,431 yards, 10 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions in 8 games of action this season.
Jayhawks tight end Trevor Kardell is questionable with an undisclosed injury for this weekend’s game. Kardell has 5 catches for 69 yards and a touchdown this season.
Cincinnati Bearcats Game Notes
Cincinnati backup quarterback Brady Lichtenberg is questionable to play in Saturday’s contest with an undisclosed injury. Lichtenberg has thrown for 252 yards and 2 touchdowns in 6 games of action this season.
Cincinnati tight end Payten Singletary is also officially listed as questionable with an undisclosed injury this weekend. Singletary has 12 catches for 115 yards and 2 touchdowns for the Bearcats in 2023.

Kansas vs. Cincinnati Betting Prediction
This game will be played under the lights at Cincinnati’s Nippert Stadium. Since 2006, the Bearcats are 39-13 straight up in night games at home. They might only be 3-8 straight up this season, but 4 of those losses have come by 8 points or less. Cincinnati can run the ball as they are 21st in the nation in average yards per rushing attempt. That could end up mattering against a Kansas defense that ranks 87th in the country in opponent yards per rushing attempt. The public is on the Jayhawks, but I like the Bearcats to cover the number at home in Nippert Stadium on Saturday night.
