Vahe Gregorian: Jayhawks don’t wilt in heat of Rupp Arena vs. Kentucky

With a rare sense of disarray swirling around the program and days after a dud loss at West Virginia, Kansas entered its game at Kentucky on Saturday ranked second in the nation, yet seeming to be reeling.

Much has changed since that first game for the Chiefs, but the Steelers’ diverse offense will make beating them thorny — at least if quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is healthy enough to play well after leaving Heinz Field with a walking boot on his right foot.
