Kansas vs West Virginia Game Preview
Why Kansas Will Win
Kansas had an … easy win?
Not even the FCS cupcake games are sure-thing layups for the Jayhawks over the years, but the program has players now, it has a head coach in Lance Leipold armed with a contract boost, and this whole thing might start to turn fast.
