Kansas was supposed to be decent this year, which makes their suffering all the more delicious. There’s really not much more to say here, as the Jayhawks are not good. They are bad. They are historically bad. As frustrating as K-State has been this fall, this will be a rout.
Kansas State (3-4, 1-3 Big 12) visits the Kansas Jayhawks (1-6, 0-4 Big 12). Kansas holds a 64-45-5 lead in the all-time series, but by the time your newborn daughter gives birth K-State should be in the lead. No active coach in Division I FBS has more wins against an opponent than Bill Snyder does against Kansas, and only one has an equal number: Bill Snyder over Iowa State.
There are six rivalries which have been contested without interruption for a century. This is one of them.
K-State opened as a 24½-point favorite, and the line has only moved a half-point in KU’s favor. The over is 56, so Vegas is looking for a 40-16 K-State win. OddsShark’s computer projection is even more feline, predicting a 44.6-8.3 win.
Saturday, October 26 at 2:00pm CT, Memorial Stadium (50,071) in Lawrence, Kansas.
Nobody cares if this game is sold out, because nobody cares who’s buying tickets from the KU box office. If you’re a good human, you won’t either. The secondary market? Well. Umm. There’s almost nothing left on the K-State sideline, which you already knew. There are LOTS of seats available on the other side, though! The most expensive of those is $82. The average is $38. Go on, go buy tickets.
FS1 with Tim Brando, Spencer Tillman, and Holly Sonders.
