Oct. 11, 2009
LAWRENCE, Kan. – Despite defeating Iowa State 41-36 to improve the nation’s fourth-longest winning streak to seven games, the Kansas football team dropped one spot to 17th in this week’s Associated Press poll, while holding steady at 15th in the USA Today/Coaches listings.
Kansas, 5-0 on the season and one of just nine undefeated teams remaining, saw Nebraska jump past the Jayhawks, moving from 21st to 15th in the AP poll with its Thursday night victory at Missouri. The Huskers remain behind KU in the USA Today poll at 17th.
The Jayhawks have been listed in all seven Associated polls this season and in 26 of the last 32 Associated Press polls.
Big 12 schools in the polls include Texas (No. 3 AP/No. 2 USA Today), Nebraska (15/17), Oklahoma State (16/14), Kansas (17/15), and Oklahoma (20/18).
The Jayhawks will play Texas, Nebraska and Oklahoma later this season, as well as Missouri and Texas Tech, which each received votes in this week’s AP poll.
Kansas will play at Colorado on Saturday in a game which will be televised nationally on FSN at 6 p.m. Central time.
