More on KU's Defense

From the LJW:

To the top: After allowing just 22 rushing yards against Nebraska, KU now has the top-ranked defense in NCAA Division I-A against the run. KU's 64.1 yards-per-game average is more than five yards per game better than Oklahoma's.

"I didn't know that," Kansas University football coach Mark Mangino said Sunday. "I'm very proud of our defense. They have played like the No. 1 defense against the rush in the nation this year."

Overall, KU has the fifth-best defense in the nation, allowing 273.89 yards per contest. Only Miami (Fla.), Virginia Tech, Alabama and West Virginia -- teams with a combined 31-3 record -- have higher-ranked D's.

And we're 35.5 dogs against UT this week. If only Rodney Dangerfield were still alive.
