No. 12 Kansas has looked more spirited and cohesive of late, winning three straight games to remain in the thick of the Big 12 race.
The Jayhawks, after a week-long layoff, will be back in action Saturday when it faces No. 14 Texas Tech in a big conference game in Lubbock, Texas.
The teams are tied for second place in the Big 12, one game behind Kansas State.
