Blue Gold Sports Staff Predictions: Kansas Jayhawks

The Mountaineers and the Jayhawks are the sole Big 12 teams playing this week, with the game being kicked off in front of West Virginia fans in attendance for the first time this season. Both teams are coming off of a bye week, and the Jayhawks are still looking for their first win this season. The questions to be answered on Saturday will be few and simple: will Les Miles actually coach in person, will the Stills brothers and the rest of the defense be too much for the Jayhawks, and how many players will we see get some playing time this Saturday.

Let’s check out some staff opinions:

Ashley O’Brien: With both teams coming off of bye weeks, I think that there will be high energy on the field to start the game. Pooka Williams is hands down the most dynamic person on the Jayhawks roster, but his skillset will be stifled by the Stills brothers on Saturday. The Mountaineers will go up quickly and get a chance to give some younger players some experience and playing time this weekend. I would not be shocked to see Garrett Greene at some Saturday.

Shanna Rose: Kansas is winless on the season and I don’t look for that to change this week. The Mountaineers defense will have to contain Pooka Williams but so far this season they have done good with limiting both Oklahoma State and Baylor’s production. At times WVU’s offense has been sloppy but t they should be able to bouncy back this week and build some confidence going forward.

Matthew Thornsbury: Kansas is having another tough season. I think they just have some sort of bad juju. Les Miles is a great coach and it doesn’t seem like that has led to any improvement for the Jayhawks. West Virginia put on a defensive show against Baylor for the second straight season. That will be a huge factor this weekend. It will be another tough day for the Jayhawks as the Mountaineers improve to 3-1.

Ethan Bock: The Mountaineers look to continue their roll this Saturday after another bye week when they take on Kansas. This should be an easy game for the Mountaineers as Kansas can’t even beat the mid-majors this year. For Neal Brown, his coaches, and his players, this weekend’s game will be a good game to work on stuff that WVU struggled against Oklahoma St. and Baylor: PENALTIES. I would hope that West Virginia doesn’t rack up 13 penalties against the Jayhawks.

Thomas Berdel: I believe this will be a sure victory for WVU. With the recent troubles the Jayhawks coaching staff has been having, on top of an extremely weak secondary. It’s safe to say that WVU’s receiver core will show is what they’re made of. I’m expecting WVU to end up with 45 points, where as the Jayhawks 7.
