3 key observations from Kansas football 38-27 win Big 12 Conference BYU

Kansas football secures a 38-27 win against BYU with a strong defensive performance and is likely to enter the top 25 rankings.

The first three games of the season for Kansas saw them never trailing on the scoreboard at halftime. They held the lead against Missouri State and Illinois, and were tied with Nevada. However, BYU became the first team to lead against Kansas at halftime, with a score of 17-14.

Kansas had some notable moments in the first half, including a fumble return for a touchdown by cornerback Cobee Bryant. However, their offense struggled to maintain momentum and their defense had difficulties defending the pass.

It took some time for Kansas' offense to find their rhythm, but their defense stepped up to ensure that their chances of winning remained intact. The defense forced three turnovers, including a touchdown interception by senior safety Kenny Logan Jr. and another interception by Bryant. Kansas' offense did not have any turnovers in the game. When the Jayhawks have a positive turnover margin like this, they usually come out with a win.

The upcoming game on September 30th against Texas was already highly anticipated, as it marks the Jayhawks' return to Austin after their upset victory in 2021. Both teams have had strong starts to the 2023 season, adding to the intrigue of the matchup.

Regardless of the outcome of Texas' game against Baylor, the Kansas-Texas matchup just became even more interesting. It is likely that Kansas will enter the top 25 rankings with Texas, making it impossible for them to be overlooked like they were in their previous road game against the Longhorns.

Overall, Kansas' win against BYU showcased their ability to overcome halftime deficits and the importance of their defense in securing victories. The upcoming game against Texas promises to be an exciting battle between two teams off to impressive starts.
