Kansas faces another huge task in undefeated Baylor, the Jayhawks' fourth Top 10 opponent this season.
First place in the Big 12 Conference will be on the line Monday night at Allen Fieldhouse, as undefeated, No. 4 ranked Baylor (17-0) will play No. 10 Kansas (14-3) in one of the biggest games early in the conference play schedule across the country.
The heavyweight bout is nothing new to the Jayhawks, as the Bears will be the fourth Top 10 team KU has played this season, and No. 4 Baylor isn't even the highest ranked team to have travelled to Allen Fieldhouse this season (Kansas beat No. 2 Ohio State 78-67 at home in December). There is one first - in the history of Big 12 play, this game is the first time an overall undefeated conference for has come to Lawrence.
Time / Date: Monday, January 16, 8:30 p.m. CT
Location: Allen Fieldhouse, Lawrence, Kansas
Radio: Kansas Radio Network
Line: Kansas (-7)
