Five Things You Need to Know: September 12, 2014

Five Things You Need To Know is a new weekly series from Rock Chalk Blog which highlights what we think are the most important news stories, videos, photos, etc. of the week. Our first installment was two weeks ago.

Here are this week’s five things you need to know:

1) Kansas looks to end road losing streak at Duke

Kansas hasn’t won a road game in a very long time. In fact, KU hasn’t won on the road since 2009. 27-straight games.

But that all ends on Saturday, right? Charlie Weis believes it could end. He has a point as Duke’s biggest strength is their wide receivers and KU’s strength appears to be the secondary.

We’ll find out tomorrow if this KU team can get a road win. It might end up being their best chance all season at getting rid of this awful streak.
