NORTHEAST KANSAS (KSNT) – Much-needed weekends for both Kansas programs this week. KU rested up on the bye week ahead of a game against No. 6 Oklahoma. K-State dominated in all three phases against TCU.
As always this time of year – the show starts with football. Hard to find a better performance than K-State did against TCU on Saturday. A 41-3 routing – led by rotating quarterbacks – could set the tone for the rest of the season.
KU football had a bye week. Coaches were out and about recruiting – and K-Nation gives an update on the Jayhawk football team.
