The Kansas Jayhawks will kick off the season playing host to the Indiana State Sycamores.
This is expected to be a close matchup as the Jayhawks are only favored by 4.5 points despite being at home.
Indiana State Sycamores
The Sycamores had a respectable 2018 season going 7-4. The Sycamores ended the year winning their last five games. They are expected to be one of the best teams in the Mountain Valley this season.
Under center is quarterback Ryan Boyle who had 1,627 passing yards and 12 touchdowns while only throwing three interceptions. Boyle also rushed for 610 yards and six touchdowns. The Sycamores will miss running back Ja’Quan Keys who led the team with 946 yards and 13 touchdowns last year.
Junior Titus McCoy is expected to lead the ground attack. Last year he went for 565 yards and six touchdowns as the backup.
The Kansas Jayhawks aren’t expected to make noise in the Big 12. They will surely be tested as they have games against three ranked opponents, two of them being in the top-10. Last season the Jayhawks went 3-9 (1-8 in Big-12).
It’s unclear who will start at quarterback for the Jayhawks. Carter Stanley (304 yards) and Thomas MacVittie have been battling for the position. At running back Pooka Williams Jr. will do the heavy lifting. Williams Jr. went for 1,125 yards and seven touchdowns as a freshman.
Stephon Robinson Jr. is their leading returner at receiver. Last season he had 330 yards and a touchdown.
