Kansas Jayhawks @ West Virginia Mountaineers
Take: West Virginia Mountaineers
Kansas @ West Virginia 4:00 PM ET Game# 335-336 Play On: West Virginia -26.0 The Kansas football program is currently in dire straits. They've gone 11-47 in their last 58-games overall, and 0-26 in their last 26 road games. The Jayhawks have also gone a pathetic 2-40 in their last 42 conference games, and have lost 23 in a row on the road versus conference opponents. As a matter of fact, their last conference road win came at Iowa St. on 10/4/2008. The head coach for the Jayhawks at that time was Mark Mangino. Ironically, Mangino is the current offensive coordinator at Iowa St. Following their loss to Texas last Saturday, head coach Charlie Weiss was fired. Weiss went a miserable 6-22 as the head coach at Kansas. Although West Virginia has gone just 2-2 to start the season, they're performance level has been encouraging, and bordering on impressive. Their two losses came at the hands of a pair of opponents that could possibly be playing in the season ending 4-team playoff that will determine the national champion of college football. The Mountaineers accounted themselves quite well in both a 33-23 loss to Alabama, and 45-33 defeat at the hands of Oklahoma. They will also be out to avenge a humiliating 31-19 loss at Kansas last season, which was just 1 of the 2 conference wins by the Jayhawks since October of 2009. The Mountaineers come into this game following a bye week. Any home favorite of 21.5 to 30.0 playing with rest, coming off a game versus a conference opponent, and they've won 18 or less of their last 22-games, has gone 33-4 ATS (89.2%) since 2005. Play on the West Virginia Mountaineers minus the big number.
