The Kansas vs. Texas game featured balanced action on the spread.


#24 Kansas will face #3 Texas In a game that will have plenty of implications on the top 25 rankings. Both teams are 4-0 coming into this high profile showdown. Texas is heavily favored by the NCAA football odds. Can Kansas make a statement and be the winning NCAAF pick for this game?

Texas is a big 16 point favorite in this game despite both teams being 4-0.

Dave Wilson of ESPN writes of the Longhorns ahead of this game:

"The Longhorns, who had lost in their past two trips to Baylor, dominated the Bears in Waco, an emphatic start to their first Big 12 game in their final season in the league. Texas piled up 503 yards, averaging 8.5 yards per play, while the defense held Baylor to just 1.9 yards per carry and swarmed starter Sawyer Robertson all night, sacking him five times (two by Byron Murphy) and adding three hurries. Quinn Ewers completed 18 of 23 passes for 293 yards and a touchdown and added a 29-yard TD run. Jonathon Brooks had a 40-yard touchdown run, one of two TDs he had on the day along with 106 yards, while tight end Ja'Tavion Sanders had 110 yards on five catches."

Texas has won all of their games by double digits and no fewer than 21 points in three of those.  The other, a ten-point victory, was against mighty Alabama.

While the Longhorns did blow out KU last season 55-14, Kansas had a win the prior year.
