Posted November 09, 2012 on AP on Fox
Kansas coach Charlie Weis is tweaking a couple of routines heading into the Jayhawks' game against No. 25 Texas Tech this weekend. It couldn't hurt to try something different. The Jayhawks have just one win overall this season, so Weis is taking the team to Lubbock earlier and holding practice where they will play the Red Raiders on Saturday. Kansas also is looking to break an 18-game Big 12 losing streak. The Jayhawks are coming off a 41-14 loss at Baylor, while Texas Tech fell 31-22 to Texas last week. After five-straight losses to close last season, Texas Tech doesn't want this year's two-game skid extended, which would lower its bowl prospects. The game pits Kansas (1-8, 0-6) and its rush offense against the pass-heavy offense of Texas Tech (6-3, 3-3).
