LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas is back in The Associated Press Top
25 for the first time in 11 years, and the 20th-ranked Jayhawks are
determined to stick around for a while.
A 30-24 come-from-behind win at Kansas State impressed the
voters enough to move Kansas into the poll for the first time since
The Jayhawks were ranked by 61 of the 65 voters and were ranked
as high as 14th by one voter and 15th by three others.
It's also the first time since October 1995 that Kansas has been
ranked higher than Texas, which is 23rd. It's a gratifying
turnaround for a team that has been a longtime laughing stock of
the Big 12.
Kansas hosts Baylor this Saturday, so the Jayhawks are hoping to
improve to 6-0 overall and 2-0 in the Big 12 -- and perhaps climb
higher in the rankings.
