Texas vs Kansas Prediction & Pick
What happened to Texas last week? The Longhorns rushed for just 28 yards against TCU after Texas RB Bijan Robinson had gained at least 100 rushing yards in seven straight games prior to that. The Big 12's top running back should go off against Kansas, however, as the Jayhawks' defense has allowed at least 260 rushing yards in three of their last four games.
Kansas has a solid, balanced offensive attack, rushing for 200 yards per game with a league-high 5.6 yards per rush and passing for 234 yards per game vs FBS opponents. Running back Devin Neal has rushed for more than 400 yards over the last two games combined, but the Longhorns' defense is No. 2 in the conference against the run. Texas also tops the Big 12 in sacks with 24.
Kansas has overachieved and will go to a bowl game after being picked to finish last in the conference by most pundits and media members. Second-year head coach Lance Leipold has done a terrific job, but the Jayhawks will come up short in their last home game as the Longhorns redeem themselves.
Final Score Prediction: Texas: 43 | Kansas: 24

Texas vs Kansas Best Bet
All NCAAF betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.
The stronger Texas team with better pedigree and superior special teams will play with a purpose here after losing to Kansas as a 31-point favorite last year. Look for the Longhorns to bounce back from last week's putrid offensive performance against a Jayhawks defense that's allowed at least 35 points in their four most recent losses.
Bet: Texas -9.5 (-105)
