Good Saturday morning, Wildcat fans, and welcome to the final regular season game of the year. The Wildcats have experienced one of the most up and down seasons they’ve seen in awhile, but at 6-5 they’re bowl eligible and look like a likely invitee to the Holiday Bowl. Here’s everything you need to know about the tilt in Lawrence, where they put a track around the football field:
Game Time: It’s yet another 11 a.m. kickoff as K-State continues waking up early in exchange for national television exposure. So have some bacon and eggs ready and put on a pot of coffee. Because this game may be over before the noon hour.
Where To Watch: Game will once again be broadcast on Fox Sports 1. I don’t know about the rest of you, but living outside of regional coverage, I’m really beginning to love this partnership.
Weather: KU had a helluva time moving the ball in the frigid conditions the Jayhawks encountered last week in Ames. The temperature promises to be a little warmer this week, and it’s expected to be 44 degrees at kickoff and hover around 50 by the time of the final whistle. The sky is expected to remain sunny with no chance of precipitation and winds shouldn’t get above 10 mph. Looks to be about as a nice a day as you can hope for this time of year.
What To Know: K-State is a heavy favorite, and should emerge victorious. Click here for our prediction of this outcome as well as the rest of the weekend’s Big 12 action. We’ve also got the Five Things To Watch, Shane Summers’ Key Match Up, and a look at whether KU Actually Has a Shot At Winning. Additionally, in non-football related news, shout out to the K-State women’s basketball team. Although they’ve been off to a rocky start this year, the Wildcats upped their record to .500 with a win over Virginia Friday night.
