Led by award-winning Head Coach Turner Gill, who joined the team last year, the 2011 Jayhawks line their nest with 15 returning starters and a new brood of fleet-footed freshman. Groupon holders can wave the wheat from tier 2 seats near each end zone, causing Big 12 rivals to daydream about pancakes instead of catching the ball. After starting in seven games last year, sophomore quarterback Jordan Webb hopes to top his personal record of 1,195 passing yards. Rookie running back Tony Pierson brings velocity to this year's squad, dashing 5,661 yards and hurdling 27 flamingo lawn ornaments during his prep career.

Fans can tailgate on Campanile Hill before the game, then celebrate Rock Chalk Saturdays by belting out the Rock Chalk chant and performing fight-song drum solos with freshly chalked pool cues.
