Your Favorite Sunflower Showdown Memories

Taking a cue from Rock Chalk Talk's historical perspective post, it's time we decided which K-State/KU football showdown holds a special place in our hearts. Here are some suggestions below, you can put forth your own suggestions in the comments.

1991: K-State 16, KU 12: Bill Snyder's first win over KU.

1994: K-State 21, KU 13: Snyder's first win in Lawrence causes the goalposts to fall. Yes, you read that right.

2002: K-State 64, KU 0: No real amplification needed. The most lopsided game in the history of the Sunflower Showdown.

2003: K-State 40, KU 6: Special for me because it was the first home win over KU I witnessed. I'll never forget the despondent KU fan sitting on the sidewalk after the game, repeatedly wailing, "Someday, someday we're going to beat K-State! Someday!"
