The Kansas Jayhawks will be trying to get back to relevance once again, after the team completed another season with 3 wins or less.  Kansas finished the 2019 season with a record of (3-9). Kansas saw their 3 wins come against Indiana State, Boston College, and Texas Tech. Last season KU lost to Coastal Carolina at home, 12-7.  Get College Football Predictions at Pick Dawgz.

Kansas was led last season by quarterback Carter Stanley.  Stanley registered a solid season under center, passing for 2,661 yards, while throwing 24 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.  However, Stanley was a senior last season. As of now, it looks like Thomas MacVittie will be the quarterback of choice to start the season.  MacVittie is a junior, after transferring to Kansas from Mesa Community College.  

The offense does welcome back running back Pooka Williams Jr.  Williams rushed for 1,042 yards on 203 attempts and 3 touchdowns.  At the wideout spot, Andrew Parchment led Kansas in yards, with 829 on 65 receptions, while also finding the end zone 7 times.  Stephon Robinson Jr collected 727 yards receiving on 45 receptions, while totaling 8 touchdowns. The football program averaged just 23.5 points per game, which ranked 101st at the FBS level.

Defensively, Kansas was almost non-existent on defense, allowing an average of 36.1 points per game.  Kansas ranked 120th out of 130 FBS schools in points allowed per contest. As a team, Kansas had just 17 sacks and 6 interceptions.  The leader for Kansas in sacks and interceptions and were both seniors, as well as the leading tackler. While Kansas did not have a lot of success on defense, their leaders in major statistical categories were seniors. Davon Ferguson does return, after totaling 57 tackles a year ago. 

Let us take a look at the Kansas schedule for the 2020 season.  


Sept. 12 — at Baylor


Sept. 26 — at Coastal Carolina


Oct. 10 — at K-State


Oct. 24 — at West Virginia

Nov. 7 — TEXAS

Nov. 14 — at Texas Tech

Nov. 21 — at Oklahoma

Nov. 28 — TCU

Kansas opens the season against FCS opponent New Hampshire.  This will not be an automatic win for a team in a power 5 conference, as the New Hampshire Wildcats finished 6-5 a year ago, in the always tough Colonial Athletic Association Conference.  Other non-conference games include a home contest against Boston College and a return game at Coastal Carolina. I’ll give Kansas a win at home against Boston College, but Kansas did lose to Coastal Carolina last season at home. 

The Jayhawks have had a hard enough time winning at home over the last so many years, therefore I’m giving Kansas a below average chance to win this road game at Coastal Carolina.  The rest of the schedule features the Big 12 conference games. Kansas defense was not good last season and to top it off, the team lost quite a few seniors on defense. This win total projection is at 3 and I’m going to take the under.  Until Kansas can prove to be relevant, I’ll take the under. I just don’t see 3 for sure wins on this schedule, so at best I could see Kansas getting a push on this win total.
