Kansas-Oklahoma Slated for 6:05 p.m. Kickoff
LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas football will play its first night game since the opening week of the season on Saturday, Oct. 20, when the Jayhawks travel to Norman, Okla. The Big 12 Conference announced Monday that the Jayhawks’ matchup against Oklahoma will feature a 6:05 p.m. kickoff and be broadcast, on Fox Sports Net cable stations across the country.
This marks KU’s third FSN game, as the Sept. 8 contest against Rice and this week’s game against Oklahoma State were also televised on the network. Over the last three seasons, KU has played 14 games on FSN. Each of KU’s first seven games have been televised this year.
Kansas is traveling to Oklahoma for first time since the 2008 season, when the Sooners claimed a 45-31 victory in a shootout. In that contest, the Jayhawks and Sooners combined for 1,165 yards of offense, including 825 through the air. OU leads the all-time series with KU, 69-27-6. The Sooners are also 36-13-3 against the Jayhawks at home. KU’s last victory at Memorial Stadium in Norman came in 1996.
The Jayhawks host conference foe Oklahoma State Saturday for their first home game since Sept. 15. The KU-OSU game is scheduled for a 2:30 p.m., kickoff, and can also be seen on FSN.
