The latest round of predictions are out from David Ubben, ESPN's Big 12 blogger, for week two of the college football season, and good news awaits fans of Kansas football. The Jayhawks face Rice today in week two of the 2012 season, and Ubben believes that Kansas will only get better with another week of experience and chemistry under new head coach Charlie Weis.
Ubben writes, "KU got a win last week, but the Jayhawks are capable of playing a whole lot better. They do. Tony Pierson has another huge game and Dayne Crist gets his completion percentage back over 60. Confidence is building in Lawrence."
The Jayhawks faced South Dakota State in the first week of the season and won 31-17. It was the sort of middling victory that no one could feel truly good about considering it was against an FCS opponent. Today's game will tell a lot more about Weis' team and how far they have to go for respectability.
