Isaiah CousinsIsaiah CousinsWe didn’t have to go too deeply into 2016 to get a confrontation between No.’s 1 vs. 2.

With the Oklahoma Sooners remaining No. 1 in the Power 16 for the third week in a row and Kansas moving up to No. 2 following then-No. 2 Michigan State’s loss at Iowa last week, that confrontation will take play in Lawrence Monday night when Kansas plays host to the Sooners.

Most notably among those changes are Duke (which fell to Utah) and Kentucky (falling to Ohio State) dropping out of the latest Power 16.
