Kansas University will be the first Big 12 team to come into Swanson Stadium, so it’s a big opportunity for FGCU this weekend. In the first series of the season, the Jayhawks took two out of three games vs South Dakota State University, where they played a neutral series at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Head Coach Ritch Price is in his 18th season leading the Jayhawks. KU has been to the NCAA Tournament three times during his time in Lawrence (2006, 2009, 2014). He has earned 531 wins at KU.
FGCU hopes to look like the team that swept USF this past weekend, and we expect the offense to click over these next four games. Should be a great weekend at FGCU, with FGCU Baseball hosting these four games, as well as two early afternoon games Saturday and Sunday for #26 FGCU Women’s Basketball vs UNF.
FGCU takes 3 out of 4 games vs Kansas University.
