Kansas Jayhawks vs Minnesota Golden Gophers

Insight Bowl Game Preview

The Kansas Jayhawks were in the Orange Bowl last year and were the eventual winners, beating Virginia Tech 24-21. This year they finished with a 7-5 record in the tough Big 12 and find themselves in the Insight Bowl.  What a difference a year makes, the Minnesota Golden Gophers were on the opposite end of the spectrum last season, as they finished with a 1-11 record and left fans begging for answers. The Gophers also finished with a 7-5 mark, however, they started the season 7-1 and were ranked in the Top 25 until a 4 game losing streak that they will look to end in this bowl game.

Todd Reesing enjoyed alot of success this season breaking many of Kansas’ single season passing records, including completions, attempts, total yards and passing yards. Minnesota will have to get good quarterback play from Adam Weber, the Golden Gopher pivot struggled down the stretch and will need to regain his confidence if Minnesota wants to keep up with the explosive Jayhawks.

Insight Bowl Game Prediction

The Jayhawks have no doubt had the tougher schedule this season this can either hurt a football team or it can benefit it when preparing for a bowl game. We feel that the tough schedule will help the Jayhawks, 5 of their 12 games were played against once ranked opponents, they should be well prepared.
