Wildcats, Jayhawks Ranked in Spring Power Rankings


Following the conclusion of spring workouts and spring games across the conference, the Wildcats and Jayhawks were ranked in the latest edition of preseason power rankings.


Heartland College Sports released a full 14-team power ranking for all teams in the Big 12, including the four new members of the conference, BYU, Cincinnati, UCF, and Houston.


The defending conference champion Kansas State Wildcats were given the top spot, returning their star quarterback and stellar offensive line. KSU also added one of the best transfer running backs available in Treshaun Ward, and maintains a stout defense.


The Kansas Jayhawks are building on one of their brightest years of the 21st century, and came in at 8th in the power rankings. Coach Lance Leipold has completely revived the football program, and with Heisman darkhorse Jalon Daniels returning at quarterback, anything is possible. The defense is questionable, leaving KU with a middle of the pack projection.


Still months away from kickoff with plenty of changes to come, but both Jayhawk and Wildcat football fans have reason to be excited for the fall.
