Colorado Vs. Kansas: Someone's Getting Their First Big 12 Victory

In what ,may be teams No. 11 and No. 12 in the Big 12, Colorado and Kansas will take on each other this weekend in Lawrence, Kan., at Memorial Stadium. The Jayhawks are 2-6 on the season and 0-4 in the Big 12. They haven't won a game since Sept. 25. The Buffs are 3-5 overall and 0-4 in the Big 12.

It will be the final matchup between the two schools as members of the Big 12 Conference.. Colorado is taking off for the Pac-10 (or 12) after this year. This is actually the first of two consecutive games against departing members of the Big 12 as Kansas will face Nebraska the following week.

The game will be at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday and it will not be televised. Kansas had a streak of 22 consecutive televised games before last week's contest against Iowa State. Now KU has a streak of two straight games absent TV.

Kansas has lost four straight Big 12 home games but they've got reason to believe on Saturday: They're 4-1 in their first game of November over the last five years including victories over Nebraska (twice) Iowa State and Kansas State.

Colorado is leading KU in the all-time series, 42-24-3 but just 17-15-3 in Lawrence, KS so history says the Jayhawks can pull this off.
