For the first time in the Shaka Smart era, the Texas Longhorns will have a top-10 matchup in the AP poll — the No. 9 Horns travel to Lawrence on Saturday for a big-time game against the No. 3 Kansas Jayhawks.
The game tips off at 11 a.m. Central on ESPN2.
In the last several weeks, Texas has missed out on contests against No. 2 Baylor and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, giving the Longhorns plenty of time to prepare for the Jayhawks with nearly two weeks off since the team’s last game against the Cowboys.
