Southeast Missouri vs. Kansas
The one team who could really put the conference in jeopardy of not going undefeated will be Kansas. For obvious reasons. The one constant through all the years as been the Jayhawks will be lousy on the football field.
They’ll be cellar dwellers in the Big 12 for yet another year, but not even Southeast Missouri can bury the Jayhawks so quickly.
Last year, Southest Missouri went 3-8 and 3-5 in conference to finish seventh in the Missouri Valley. Kansas went 2-10 and 1-8 in conference to finish 10th in the Big 12.
Prediction: Kansas 24, Southeast Missouri 14.
