What looks like the coldest game on the docket yet for head coach Steve Sarkisian and Texas football this season lies ahead in Lawrence, KS, on Nov. 19. Texas is set to hit the road to face head coach Lance Leipold and the upstart Kansas Jayhawks in Lawrence in Week 12.

This will be the final road game of the regular season for Sark and the Longhorns. It will also give Texas an opportunity to prevent a losing skid from moving to two games.

Texas is coming off a sluggish 17-10 loss at the hands of the No. 4 ranked TCU Horned Frogs at home at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium on Nov. 12. The loss to TCU moves Texas’ mark on the season to a middling 6-4 (4-3 Big 12).

Meanwhile, Kansas comes into this game with a record of 6-4 (3-4 Big 12) after a convincing 43-28 loss against the Texas Tech Red Raiders on the road at Jones AT&T Stadium in Lubbock on Nov. 12. Kansas has lost four straight games heading into this contest against Texas in Week 12.

This matchup against the Jayhawks is going to compete with the road game against the Kansas State Wildcats a couple of weeks ago to determine what will be the coldest of the season so far.

Here’s a look at the weather forecast for Texas’ road matchup on Nov. 19 against Kansas at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium in Lawrence, with the kickoff time set for 2:30 p.m. CT.
