ARLINGTON, Tx. - The Big 12 Media Days began Monday morning at AT&T stadium for all 10 Big 12 football teams splitting day one of the event with five teams.

The Kansas Jayhawks were one of the five teams to speak at opening day and created interest around the KU football program as first year head coach Les Miles took the stage to talk to the media about his new program and he addressed his defense.

"We're going from a 4-3 to a 3-4, we have a veteran secondary and we will put a very very capable defense on the field." head coach Les Miles said. 

The Jayhawks open the season at home against Indiana State Aug 31.

The remaining teams will speak to the media on Tuesday in which new head coach Chris Klieman for Kansas State University will have a chance to talk about the Wildcats and filling in for hall of fame coach Bill Snyder.

Temperatures are very mild outside right now with most areas in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Today will be another warm and windy day with temperatures climbing into the lower 70s. Today we will have mostly sunny skies with a few clouds building in during the evening hours. Outdoor burning should be avoided today as low humidity and gusty winds continue. Winds will stay breezy over the next few days with wind gusts around 20-30 mph. A more active pattern of weather will settle in for most of this week with our first chance of light rain overnight Tuesday into Wednesday. A better chance for more moderate to heavy rain with possibly a few thunderstorms will move into the area Wednesday night into Thursday with a cold front. That front will stall south of our area late in the week, providing several more chances for rain throughout the rest of the week into the weekend. Temperatures will be a bit cooler after the cold front rolls through with highs back in the 50s.
