Among the most important games on the conference schedule for head coach Steve Sarkisian and No. 3 Texas football awaits on Sep. 30 at home in Austin against the No. 24 Kansas Jayhawks and head coach Lance Leipold. In the first ranked matchup in Big 12 play this season, only one of these two squads will stay undefeated coming out of Week 5.
Texas triumphed convincingly in its Big 12 opener last weekend, in a 38-6 win over head coach Dave Aranda and the Baylor Bears on the road at McLane Stadium in Waco on Sep. 23. The win over Baylor gives the Longhorns a record of 4-0 (1-0 Big 12) heading into Week 5.
Kansas is also sporting an undefeated 4-0 (1-0 Big 12) record after an impressive double-digit win at home at David Booth-Kansas Memorial Stadium in Lawrence on Sep. 23 over the BYU Cougars. Leipold and the Jayhawks were firing on all cylinders for most of that 38-27 win over BYU on offense last weekend.
Plenty is on the line for these two foes in their final matchup as conference foes this weekend.
