Last year we gave up 62 to the Sooners. This year 3.
Last year we gave up 35 to the Jayhawks (in a win) and the year before we infamously allowed 76 ****ing points. This year?
Obviously the defense will have to step up big again, because we can't get in a shootout with anyone. And by shootout I mean anything above 17 pts. KU has kind of fallen apart, but I really don't think these teams are that far apart in terms of matching up on the field. Expect a really close game. Hopefully the offense wakes up.
I think winning of 2 of these last 3 would win the North (that k-state game being the biggest). Won't be easy, though. The offensive rebuild has been more painful than any of us expected, but the defensive resurgence has been a thing of beauty.
Not sure how the homestretch will turn out, but I'm going to enjoy watching this defensive line no matter the circumstances. The turnaround of our front 7 is truly incredible, and I'd love to see them at least get a shot at the Longhorns in a title game. Might not win that game 9 times out of 10, but with our defense playing at its peak we always have a punchers chance.
