For the last several seasons, the annual match-up between Big 12 powers Kansas Jayhawks and Texas Longhorns has produced some of the best college basketball of the year.  Based solely on the close final outcomes and elite individual talents on each side, one could argue this is the most underrated rivalry in all NCAA sports.

When the 11th ranked Longhorns travel to Lawrence to take on second ranked Kansas on Saturday, another exciting chapter of this epic series is sure to be written.  

Both squads come into the weekend with 3-0 records in league play, and each is coming off impressive road victories against respected Big 12 foes.  The winner of Saturday's game will stake their claim as the best team in the conference, and gain a leg up as the grueling league schedule continues into February.

Though its never smart to bet against Kansas at home, if any team will break KU's 69 game home-winning streak, its the Longhorns.  Shutting down Texas' prolific wing scorer and pair of talented freshman will be huge in determining the game's outcome.  If UT gets a couple big individual performances, don't be shocked if this game comes down to the wire.

Following are player breakdowns and match-up analysis for the Kansas Jayhawks' game on Saturday against the Texas Longhorns.
