Jayhawk Conference

No. 5 Blinn (0-0) at No. 2 Butler (1-0), 7 p.m. -- Just like Butler, Blinn is a team with national championship aspirations, but the Buccaneers are young, with over 60 freshmen on the roster. Blinn won its last national title in 2009 with future Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton at quarterback, defeating Fort Scott in the Citizens Bank Bowl at Pittsburg.

No. 10 Hutchinson (1-0) at No. 12 Navarro (0-0), 7 p.m. – Troy transfer Luke Barnes showed Hutchinson coach Rion Rhoades picked the right quarterback after a three-way battle in training camp. Barnes threw for a school-record 459 yards in the Blue Dragons’ 58-26 win over No. 17 Coffeyville last week.

Other games

No. 16 Tyler (0-0) at Fort Scott (1-0), 1 p.m.

Southeast Texas Prep (0-0) at Independence (0-1), 1 p.m.

Highland (0-1) at Northeastern Oklahoma (0-0), 7 p.m.

Cisco, Texas (0-0) at Garden City (1-0), 7 p.m.

No. 7 Trinity Valley, Texas (0-0) at No. 17 Coffeyville (0-1), 7 p.m.

Dodge City (0-1) at Kilgore (0-0), 7 p.m.


Friends (0-0) at Evangel (0-0), 6 p.m. – Derby product Jeff Kontz is a four-year starter for Friends and one of the best defensive backs in the nation. The 6-foot-2, 200-pound safety was an All-KCAC pick last season with 59 tackles, five interceptions and five pass breakups and is a preseason All-American. This game should be a good test for the Falcons – Evangel is picked fifth in the Heart of America, but the first four teams are all ranked in the Top 25. The Crusaders also have a pair of preseason All-America linebackers in Jamail Randle and Taber Cheo.

Other games

William Penn (0-0) at Bethel (0-0), 11:30 a.m.

Kansas Wesleyan (0-0) at Cumberland (0-0), noon

Sterling (0-0) at Benedictine (0-0), 1 p.m.

Saint Mary (0-0) at Nebraska Wesleyan (0-0), 1 p.m.

Missouri Valley (0-0) at McPherson (0-0), 6 p.m.

No. 24 Bethany (0-0) at Southwest Assemblies (0-0), 6 p.m.
