The Kansas Jayhawks are off to a strong start in the 2023-24 NCAA college basketball season. KU went 9-1 in its first 10 games, beating ranked squads like Kentucky, Tennessee and UConn. Following such a strong start and a consistent presence in the top 10 of men's college basketball rankings, Kansas odds suggest that the team is poised for another championship run. Meanwhile, the Kansas football team is back on track, winning a bowl game this past December — its first bowl win since 2008.

Kansas has gotten off to a strong start to the season, going 18-5 and ranking top 10 in the AP Top 25 poll. However, the Jayhawks did recently fall out of the top three.

Kansas vs. Texas, February 24, 5 p.m. CT, ESPN

There aren't odds out for Kansas vs. Texas yet either because it's so far in advance, but this is a strong Big 12 rival for the Jayhawks. Texas has won eight of the past 10 matchups between the two programs. The Longhorns are no longer in the AP Top 25 after starting the season there.

Kansas at Kansas State, March 5, 8 p.m. CT

Kansas vs. Kansas State odds for this matchup have not yet been released, but Kansas State just upset the Jayhawks 75-70 on February 5. This is always a bitter rivalry, though Kansas had won eight of the last 10 matchups prior to losing to K-State in February.

Kansas Basketball Roster, Top Players

Kansas has one of the best rosters in college basketball and a strong starting lineup, led by leading scorer Hunter Dickinson at center. Dickinson leads the team with 20.1 points per game and 12.2 rebounds per game. Guard Kevin McCullar Jr. (19.2 PPG) and K.J. Adams Jr. (12.4 PPG) are the other starters averaging double figures. Dajuan Harris Jr. leads the team in assists (7.2 APG), while freshman Elmarko Jackson rounds out the starting lineup.

KU Football Schedule 2024

The Kansas Jayhawks beat the UNLV Rebels in the Guaranteed Rate Bowl on Tuesday, December 26, 2023, finishing their season 9-4. Kansas finished No. 23 in the final AP Poll.

8-4 was good enough for the Jayhawks to get into a bowl, but there was a clear gap between when Jalon Daniels was starting and Jason Bean. Daniels, the starter heading into the season, only played three games (all wins) and then missed the rest of the season with a back injury. He does intend to return next season.

The highlight of the season was upsetting then-No. 6 ranked Oklahoma 39-32. Losses in two of the Jayhawks' last three games (16-13 vs. Texas Tech, 31-27 vs. Kansas State) put a damper on the final portion of the season.

It should be a good season next year for Kansas football if Jalon Daniels returns. A notable matchup is Kansas' bowl game rematch with UNLV, while Deion Sanders' Colorado team comes to the Kansas City area near the end of the season. Remember, Kansas will play some of its home games at Arrowhead Stadium, home of the Chiefs, in 2024.
