Point Spread Pick:
The Jayhawks were all out to win at home back on January 18th. You just have to figure the going will be tough in Gallagher-Iba Arena for the rematch. The problem with that theory is that the Cowboys have won only 3 times in the 10 games since then; beating only bottom dwellers West Virginia, Texas Tech and TCU. That being said, they did win their last 2 and should be primed for one of their best efforts of the season. Take the Oklahoma State Cowboys +1.
