The Rutgers Scarlet Knights opened up the season with a huge win against the Texas State Bobcats, but quickly fell in their next game against the ranked Ohio State team.
The Scarlet Knights are going to be in some trouble here as they run into the Jayhawks at the worst time.
Rutgers Scarlet Knights
The Rutgers Scarlet Knights tend to have one or two games that may be out of their reach, and that game went and came when they took on the Ohio State Buckeyes last week. It was forth coming as the Knights could not get anything going against a ranked defense that has the best secondary in the league.
Starting off against that ranked secondary, both quarterbacks Artur Sitkowski and Giovanni Rescigno combined for 65 total passing yards a long with two interceptions. It was a tough day for the Knights and the offensive line as they allowed five sacks on the day.
Coming into this game, it is a huge mismatch game as the Kansas Jayhawks are having one of their best starts in school franchise. They have had one of the worst losing streaks on the road and broke it last week.
Now they return home to a sold out crowd which has been able to stop the passing game which is going to be the strongest way the Knights will win this game. On the flip side, they only totaled 69 rushing yards against the Ohio State Buckeyes. The Jayhawks are averaging giving up 102 rushing yards per game. Best way to surprise the Jayhawks will be the passing game.
The losing streak is finally over for the Kansas Jayhawks as they had one of the worst road losing streaks in CFB history. Now they come back at home to also have a record holding above their head as they are the favorites for the first time in years. With this amount of praise and pressure for the Jayhawks, will they be able to cover or more importantly win against the Knights?
The most impressive stat coming from the win over the Central Michigan Chippewas was the turnover rate in the game. The Jayhawks were able to create four turnovers on the defensive side of the ball and must commit the same against a Knight team that has the potential to air it out.
