While it is good to be among the ranked teams at the moment, every team will be well aware that the current rankings mean very little in the grand scheme of things. We will see teams rise and fall over the course of the season, with the truth being that until the Playoff Committee puts out their first rankings, we are really just guessing as to the overall rankings. We still have a lot of football to come before the committee starts to deliberate, which means that teams still have plenty of time to impress and hopefully make their way into the final four. Both of these teams come into this weekend with perfect records, so something is going to have to give on Saturday afternoon. Will Texas win and stay in the top 4, or will Kansas spring the upset and make what would probably be a major move?

Why bet on the Kansas Jayhawks
When you consider that the Kansas Jayhawks closed out last season with 4 straight wins and ended the year with a 6-7 record, you have to be somewhat surprised to see them sitting at 4-0 and in the top 25. Perhaps, though, we should not be that surprised, as this is a team that started last season with 5 straight wins before going in the tank in a big way. They have been the favorite in all 4 games this season, so again, it is probably not that surprising that they are still unbeaten, but this weekend will be a true test of where this team really is right now. The signs do not look particularly good for the Jayhawks, who have won just twice in their last 19 meetings with the Longhorns. They are also just 1-9 SU in their last 10 trips to Austin. If there is a positive betting trend, it’s that Kansas has covered in 5 of their last 6versus Texas. Overall, 6 of their last 7 road games have gone OVER.

Why bet on the Texas Longhorns
For the last few years, there has been talk about the Texas Longhorns being back, but things have never really panned out that way. Yes, there is a lot of football still to come, but the Longhorns made a huge statement of intent with a win over Alabama a couple of weeks ago, which they them followed up with a dominating won over Baylor. In short, this team finally seems to be living up to the preseason hype ahead of their move to the SEC next season. With their perfect start to the year, the Longhorns have now won 6 of their last 7 games. They have also been a good ATS bet versus teams from the Big 12, covering in 4 of the last 5 versus teams from that conference. The UNDER has hit in 5 of their last 6 home games.

College Football Expert Pick and Series Prediction
The Texas Longhorns are beginning to look like the real deal this season, but this one definitely has the potential to be a trap game. I think Texas survives and gets the win, but I do think that the Jayhawks will cover the spread.
