Georgia Tech-Kansas Opens At -13 And Is Moving North

Most people are looking at the Jayhawks 6-3 loss to North Dakota State who finished 3-8 last year in FCS as a reason for the continued increase in the spread.

Rock Chalk Talk gives Jayhawk fans a look at Tech's offense and defense briefly breaking down how the offense works.
"The easiest way to beat Tech's offense is for the entire defense to stay disciplined and stay in their respective lane, because chasing after the ball will leave you open for a loooong touchdown run on some misdirection. "

..Gives some tips to the Kansas defense
"Now, obviously, you don't want to put 11 people in the box, but if I were the coach, I'd probably come with a standard 4-4 defense with a single safety responsible for the entire backend. Risky, sure, but if you stop 7/8ths of the plays more effectively, it's okay to take a risk or two for the other eighth of the snaps. "

...and gives a little reason for hope
"Maybe we'll pull a reverse of last Saturday and come out with enough intensity to play up to the competition, not down to it. Maybe the offensive line won't look like crap and the quarterback (whoever ends up back there) will play in a more competent fashion. Maybe our defense will have a gameplan for the flexbone and JoshUA Nesbitt won't be able to get the Yellow Jackets' offense off of the ground. "

I think this line will continue to rise another point or two and here three good reasons why:
9-2 ATS on the road
8-3 SU on the road
5-0 ATS & SU as a road favorite

Those are Tech's ATS and SU records on the road and as a favorite in two season under Paul Johnson.
