The Border Showdown, presented by the Midwest Ford Dealers, pits head-to-head competition between Kansas and the Missouri in varsity sports. Kansas currently leads Missouri, 22.5-17, with a baseball match-up at the Big 12 Championship scheduled for Saturday. Should the Jayhawks defeat Missouri at the Big 12 Championship, KU would earn an extra half point.

Kansas’ 2005-06 victory in the Border Showdown is the second for the Jayhawks. Their other win came in 2003-04 with a score of 20.5-19.5. Missouri won the 2002-03 and 2004-05 Border Showdown titles.
