The Kansas Jayhawks welcome the Chanticleers of Coastal Carolina to Lawrence this Saturday, in what should be a pretty intriguing matchup. Last years game was a slog, but Coastal Carolina prevailed 12-7.
Les Miles and company will obviously want revenge, but these teams are fairly evenly matched. The result should be a competitive game and an entertaining sweat to close Saturdays college football betting card.
Kansas finished last season 3-7, winning only one game in the Big 12. The Jayhawks retain six offensive starters from their 2019 campaign, but the QB position remains a question mark. Nonetheless, the offense should be improved in the second year running Brett Dearmons offensive scheme.
Running back Pooka Williams Jr. is clearly the Jayhawks best player on offense. Williams should be able to put up good numbers against the Chanticleers defense, which gave up 4.4 yards per carry last season.

Carolina this year, and a second straight victory over Kansas would be a big step in that direction. But Kansas, which showed promise but finished 3-9 following a four-game season-ending losing streak, enters as the favorite.
Both Kansas and Coastal Carolina enter with an ongoing quarterback competition, and both teams are likely to rely heavily on their talented running backs. For the Chanticleers, CJ Marable should be the focal point of the offense for the third consecutive season. Marable ran for 1,085 yards .
