RICE

2:30 p.m. Sept. 8 at Lawrence

KU leads the series 1-0

First meeting since the 1961 Bluebonnet Bowl, won by KU 33-7. Owls coach David Bailiff is 8-26 since a 2008 Texas Bowl win.

Huskies are picked to finish second in the Western Division of the Mid-American Conference.

KANSAS STATE

Oct. 6 at Manhattan

KU leads the series 65-39-5

Third of four Murderer’s Row games for Jayhawks. KU hasn’t beaten the Sooners since third of three straight wins in 1997.

TEXAS

Oct. 27 at Lawrence

UT leads the series 9-2

Texas is 8-0 against KU during the Big 12 era, with only one game — the 2004 Mangino post-game tirade moment — being close.

BAYLOR

BU leads the series 7-4

KU is 0-5 at Casey Stadium in Waco, and Baylor had losing seasons in four of those five years.

TEXAS TECH

Tech leads the series 12-1

How hot will the water be for Tommy Tuberville by the time the Jayhawks hit Lubbock for what may be a battle for the bottom of the Big 12?

IOWA STATE

KU leads the series 49-36-6

Gill was 0-2 against the Cyclones after Mangino’s teams had beaten ISU five straight. But it’s senior day for Dayne Crist!

WVU leads the series 1-0

The only meeting between these two schools was a month before the 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Now they end a league schedule together. Crazy conference.
