The 6 p.m. kickoff will be Kansas’ fourth night game of the season, where the Jayhawks are 4-0, while it will be the second game played on FS1 this season.

No. 19 Kansas fell to 7-3 on the year and 4-3 in Big 12 play after suffering a 16-13 defeat to Texas Tech on Saturday after the Red Raiders kicked the game-winning field goal in the final seconds. The Jayhawks have already secured the program’s first winning season since 2008 and qualified for a bowl game for the second-consecutive season.

Kansas State improved to 7-3 (5-2 Big 12) on Saturday with a 59-25 victory over Baylor, their fourth win in the past five games.
