Kansas destroys Rutgers in the GAME OF THE CENTURY of college football - SB Nation

The Kansas Jayhawks football team beat the Rutgers Scarlet Knights football team Saturday in Lawrence, 55-14. The KU routing was the first time the program doubled 50 points in a game since 2010 and the first time it won a second game in a row against a FBS team (after losing central Michigan last weekend) since 2009.

Time will tell if this was something more important than Rutgers as a particularly kind of awful. It probably was not. But the Jayhawks looked really impressive in powdering their sad Big Ten enemies, who overwhelmed all the games. The Jayhawks held the ball for 34 out of 60 minutes and acquired their visitors with 544-274 (7.5 to 4.3 per game).

Rutgers made six sales, two of which were immediately returned for touchdowns. The game also contained some moments that are typical of a battle between national powers:

And everyone had a nice time, except Rutgers.

The last time that Kansas scored 50-plus points against an FBS-opponent was against Colorado on November 6, 2010. That was the week of the first interim elections of the Obama administration. That was also three Jayhawk head trainers ago.

KU 55, RU 14

The Jayhawks have back-ups of backups in the game and they have it hung 55 points on someone. Are they … pretty decent? They may not be that bad!

Kansas is a five-time national champion *, and Rutgers literally invented the football game.

The buzz around this matchup is not so much the game itself, but the individual performance of these two teams in recent years. Let's roll through some highlights, shall we?

First, they have combined combined records of 32-86 over the past five seasons. That is about 27 games removed from .500, so not too far away, people. A baseball team could make up for that difference in a month, so it will be interesting to see if the Scarlet Knights and Jayhawks can do mid-October. Give them time.

Their average S & P + ranking for the past five years is 111th for five-time national champion Kansas and 99th for ex-2006 No. 7 Rutgers, who invented football. There are about a thousand university teams that we know in the universe, and these are two of the 111 best.
