Even though it didn't make it to the Big 12 Championship game, the Jayhawks still only have 1 loss on the whole season. The Hokies have bounced back in a big way from their losses on the way to the ACC championship.

Progress favors the Hokies.

The Line: Kansas +3.5

The Story: I think the Jayhawks can hang with the Hokies for most of this one, but Beamer Ball will get them in the end - the boys from Blacksburg are just too good on special teams. Look for their D to score at least once too.

The Call: Virginia Tech by 10

The Result: Kansas 24-21 = 3 interceptions, a defensive TD, a blocked FG, and a fake punt - textbook Beamer Ball. By Kansas. (Did you see how livid the coach was that they were using his playbook against him?) All the credit to the Jayhawks on a fantastic season.
