The Kansas Jayhawks are officially a ranked team in football. Sitting at No. 19 in the AP Poll and at No. 17 in the Coaches’ Poll after a 14-11 victory over Iowa State on Saturday to keep their undefeated season alive, this marks the first time that Kansas has been ranked in the AP Poll since October 24, 2009.
The 2009 Kansas football team also started 5-0 and ended the season 5-7 after dropping every single game after beating — wait for it — Iowa State.
The last time the Jayhawks made it as high as No. 19 was in October of 2008. Some of the current players on their team would have been in pre-school at the time. Kansas is 5-0 with wins over West Virginia, Duke, and Houston, and will face the TCU Horned Frogs in Lawrence next week. College GameDay will be at the game.
