The earliest action in the Big 12 today centers on the Kansas Jayhawks, whose 2-0 record is both surprising, inspiring and questionable depending on who you ask about it. Obviously, Turner Gill is proud of his young team so far and hopes to make a statement today on the road against Georgia Tech, the one ray of hope from last season when the Jayhawks unexpectedly knocked off a ranked Yellow Jackets team.
Today’s action starts at 11:30 CT and features a Jayhawks team on a roll of sorts, having overpowered Northern Illinois in an offensive showdown. KU has put up 87 points overall in just two games, but GT is going to be a showcase a much more formidable defensive unit.
Speaking of offense, the Yellow Jackets have been even more impressive than the Jayhawks with their first two wins boasting a total of 112 points against the likes of Western Carolina and Middle Tennessee. It’s the sort of early season openers that most large programs schedule that lead to early wins of little substance that make it difficult to tell whether a team like Georgia Tech is good or not.
The popular belief is that the Yellow Jackets present the better 2-0 team here by far, with Georgia Tech favored over KU by 15 at the present time. Two hours from now, you can watch the action unfold to see who is right on Fox Sports Net. You can also hear it on the Jayhawks Radio Network or Sirius 113.
