Kansas is 9-0 in the Big 12 and a good bet to run the regular-season table.  Here are, in my opinion, the best chances for a stumble along the way:

1.       March 6th @ Missouri.  It’s the final game of the regular season and K-U will be coming off a Sunflower State showdown with Kansas State three days earlier.  The Tigers had won 32 straight at the Mizzou Arena before losing the Texas A&M February 3rd.  Chance of upset 40%

2.       March 3rd vs. Kansas State.  The Jayhawks escaped the ‘Cats by a deuce in overtime in Manhattan.  Jake Pullen, Denny Clemente and the boys have the talent, but it will be the home finale and senior night at Allen Fieldhouse.  Chance of upset 30%.

3.       February 15th @ Texas A&M.  Mark Turgeon has done an amazing job with A&M, rallying the Aggies after the loss of Derrick Roland.  They’ve won 5 of their last 6 games.  The K-U game will be a Big Monday game, but I just think the Jayhawks will impose their will in a contrast-of-styles game.  Chance of upset 25%

4.       February 27th @ OSU.  If James Anderson and Obi Muonelo can get hot, the Cowboys’ style works well against the Jayhawks.  OSU, though, must have Ray Penn back and healthy to help guard Sherron Collins.  Chance of upset 15%
