Kansas State and Kansas will tee it up in the afternoon in this year’s edition of the Sunflower Showdown.
In a joint announcement from the Big 12 and Fox Sports Monday, officials revealed that the game between the Wildcat and Jayhawks will begin at 2:30 p.m. Nov. 2 at Memorial Stadium in Lawrence. The contest will be televised nationally on FS1.
The Sunflower Showdown is the fourth-longest uninterrupted series in FBS history. This season marks the 109th consecutive year the Wildcats and Jayhawks will meet on the gridiron. Kansas holds a 64-47-5 all-time series lead, but the Wildcats have won each of the last 10 meetings and 23 of the last 28 matchups.
But before Nov. 2 arrives, both teams have homecoming games this weekend.
KU hosts Texas Tech at 6 p.m. Saturday. Earlier in the day, K-State welcomes No. 5 Oklahoma to town for an 11 a.m. kickoff.
The contest between the Wildcats and undefeated Sooners will air on ABC.
