||Kansas (3-8, 1-7)||at||Kansas State (8-2, 6-1)|
The most divisive game on the schedule approaches. For some, this is the most important game of the season; nothing less than utter victory and humilation for the opponent will suffice. For others it's beneath notice, because whatever, utter victory and humiliation for the opponent are a fait accompli. Can't we all just get along?
The game: Kansas State (8-2, 6-1, 12/11/11) hosts the Kansas Jayhawks (3-8, 1-7). Kansas still leads the overall series 64-42-5, but the Cats have won five straight and 18 of the last 23. The Governor's cup will be contested; since the trophy was first awarded in 1969, the Wildcats lead the series 25-19-1. It is Senior Day for the Wildcats, and at halftime the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Vanier Football Complex will take place; it is the season finale for the Jayhawks.
Odds: K-State is a 27-point favorite. Because of course they are.
Kickoff: Saturday, November 28 at 3:00pm CT, Bill Snyder Family Stadium (52,830) in Manhattan, Kansas.
Tickets: All seats are sold out, though limited standing-room-only tickets remain on the northeast hill for $70. You're not going to save much on the secondary market, as there aren't very many tickets floating around and those that are are mostly higher than the SRO price.
Television: Fox Sports 1, with Dick Stockton and Brady Quinn joined by Kristina Pink on the sidelines.
Radio: K-State Sports Network, with Wyatt Thompson, Stan Weber, and Matt Walters; also available on Sirius 119/XM 201. If for some reason you're forced into it, you can catch the game on the Jayhawk Radio Network with Bob Davis, David Lawrence, and Steven Davis.
Online: FOX Sports Go; free audio streaming via KStateHD.tv. K-State Gameday begins at 2:10pm, with Bruce Haertl. Live stats via Gametracker.
