submitted Today, 07:19 PM in Texas Longhorns Basketball By Chris Flanagan
 

Texas (17-11, 6-9 Big 12) at #8/9 Kansas (22-6, 11-4 Big 12)

Saturday, February 28, 2015 - 4:00PM (CST)

Allen Fieldhouse - Lawrence, Kansas

The game will be televised nationally by ESPN, and College GameDay will originate with an hour pregame show from Allen Fieldhouse.

PREDICTION
The Texas Longhorns are reeling right now. Not only are they losing every game they play against quality opponents, they are now in danger of being eliminated from the NCAA tournament.

The Longhorns can get themselves off the bubble with a win in Lawrence. However, that's easier said than done. Under Bill Self, Kansas has only lost 9 times in Allen Fieldhouse. What's even more impressive than that stat is that the Jayhawks have not lost back to back games since December 2013 and both those games were on the road.

The Longhorns won't win without a miraculous performance.

Kansas 74 - Texas 58
