Normally, our media preview articles have lots of interesting information regarding the matchup. But Derek Moeller-Smith already drove a giant railroad spike into the middle of that earlier this week, so tonight’s post will be, as they used to say on Dragnet*, Just the Facts, Ma’am.

The Game

K-State (3-1, 3-0 Big 12) hosts the Kansas Jayhawks (0-4, 0-3).

There is one item of note; the guy responsible for over a third of KU’s points last week, won’t be around because he quit. Without Pooka Williams, it should be a field day for the Wildcat defense.

Odds

K-State opened at -17, and with Williams hitting the road the line’s moved up to -20 with a total of 46.5. That calculates out to 33-13 Wildcats, and Oddsshark has an even better projection at 36-11. Of course, y’all are hoping for something more like 59-0.

Kickoff

Saturday, October 24 at 11:00 CT, Bill Snyder Family Stadium (50,000) in Manhattan, Kansas.

Tickets

Reduced capacity and social distancing remain in place, and with a new wave of cases rising that’s probably for the best. If you insist, the secondary market has a very small number of seats available. Vivid Seats only shows 23 listings, ranging from $73-$121; the average hit is about $90 per. Every listed seat is south of the southern 35-yard line.

Television

It’s probably no surprise that this is not the 11am game on FOX. It is, however, the 11am game on FS1, with Eric Collins and Wildcat legend Ben Leber on the call from the FOX studios.

Radio

K-State Sports Network, with Wyatt Thompson, Stan Weber, and Matt Walters; also available on Sirius 98/XM 200/Internet 954.

Online

Official video stream through FOX Sports Go. The radio broadcast can also be heard via the TuneIn app, while live stats will be available via KStateSports.com . If you’ve cut the cord and are looking for a full streaming option, fuboTV is now carrying every major cable network which has football in keeping with their sports-centric business model.
