A series that’s been continuously played since 1911 hits the field once again tonight. Kansas leads the series 64-51-5, but Kansas State has won the last 14 straight meetings.

This year’s matchup marks the first meeting where both teams came in ranked since 1995.
Quite the game. KSU TD and 2 point conversion makes it 27-24 KU with 6:35 left in the 3rd.
KSU’s TD with 10 minutes left in the game turned out to be what sealed it.

Final score 31-27 KSU.

The Wildcats win their 15th straight matchup in the rivalry and move to 8-3 on the year, hoping to keep slim Big 12 Championship Game hopes alive next week by winning Farmageddon next week against Iowa State and having either: (1) Oklahoma State lost to BYU AND Oklahoma lose to TCU, or (2)Texas lose to Texas Tech, Oklahoma beat TCU, AND Oklahoma State beat BYU.

Kansas meanwhile drops completely out of the CFP rankings as they fall to 7-4 after starting the season 6-2, including an upset of then #6 Oklahoma. The Jayhawks finish the season against Cincinnati and then will await their bowl game placement.
