Kansas Football November 8 vs. Iowa State

KJHK Sports

Kansas Football is back in town this Saturday as the Jayhawks look to beat up on a comparable Big 12 opponent in Iowa State. The Jayhawks have not won a game against a conference foe in nearly a year and a win Saturday would only be Kansas’ second win in the Big 12 conference in almost four years. The game’s implications are not much to consider as the winner is likely to only amount to become the second-worst team in the conference by the end of the season. While the game doesn’t mean much for the standings the matchup on Saturday could make or break interim head coach Clint Bowen as he looks to lock…

Women’s Soccer 10-31 @ Oklahoma Preview

KJHK Sports

It’s almost tournament time for KU Women’s Soccer, and the Jayhawks are coming in strong. Ahead of their last regular season game in Norman against Oklahoma, the Jayhawks are 15-3-0 overall ranked 17th. Where at the beginning of the season it was the powerful offense and tremendous scoring instinct of Liana Salazar, it is now all about the top 20 defense for the Jayhawks. Salazar still sits in 40th in the nation in scoring with 11 goals and four assists. Her 26 points is 10 more than the nearest Lady Jayhawk, and her dominance won’t stop against the weak Sooner defense. Kansas puts up nearly two goals per game, good for 64th in the nation,…
