When last we saw No. 8 Kansas (11-1), it was ending an 11-game winning streak and squandering an opportunity for a shot at a national championship in a 36-28 loss to Missouri. Conversely, No. 5 Virginia Tech (11-2) salvaged its season with a win over Boston College in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game, avenging an earlier loss to BC and punching Virginia Tech's ticket to this game. In the X's and O's matchup, it'll be Kansas' prolific passing attack vs. Virginia Tech's tough defense, which includes All-America cornerback Brandon Flowers.
