In his second season at Kansas, head coach Lance Leipold led the Jayhawks to a breakthrough season in 2022. Leipold guided Kansas to its first 5-0 start since 2009 and its first bowl game since 2008 with an appearance in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl. Kansas played in front of three sellout crowds at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium and posted the largest percentage attendance increase by a school that allowed full capacity the previous season.
