Kansas-Oklahoma State Game to Kick Off at 2:30 p.m. on FSN
LAWRENCE, Kan. – For the second time this season, Kansas will have a home game televised nationally on Fox Sports Net. The Big 12 Conference announced Monday that the Jayhawks’ Oct. 13 matchup against Oklahoma State will feature a 2:30 p.m., kickoff and will be broadcast on FSN cable stations across the country.
This marks KU’s second FSN game at 2:30 p.m., as the Sept. 8 contest against Rice was also played on the network in the same time slot. Since 2009, KU has played 14 games on FSN.
Kansas will be hosting the Cowboys for the first time since the 2010 season, when Oklahoma State claimed a 48-14 win over the Jayhawks on Senior Day. OSU holds a slight 30-29 edge in the series history, which also includes three ties. The Cowboys are 17-15-1 all-time against the Jayhawks in games played at Memorial Stadium.
A portion of all tickets sold to the game will be donated to the Jayhawks for a Cure program. The Jayhawks for a Cure fund supports cancer treatment and prevention at the KU Cancer Center and Lawrence Memorial Hospital. For every ticket sold until Friday, Oct. 12, $5 will go directly to the Jayhawks for a Cure fund.
Tickets are available for purchase at the Kansas Athletics Ticket Office, which is located on the southeast corner of Allen Fieldhouse. Tickets can also be purchased over the phone by calling 1-800-34-HAWKS or online by visiting www.KUAthletics.com.
