LAWRENCE, Kan. – “We’re going to Kansas City…Kansas City here we come!”
Day 17 of fall camp started with a short bus ride to Kansas City as the Jayhawks had the opportunity to practice at the Kansas City Chiefs practice facility. While much of the two-hour session was the same as the practices KU has held here in Lawrence, the surroundings no doubt gave the Jayhawks a little pep in their step.
“It was fun to get to check out an NFL facility,” said junior defensive tackle Daniel Wise. “Football is football regardless of where it’s played, so once we got started it was business as usual, but it was a good experience to see the look and feel of the next level.”
Kansas will hold two more practices before fans can get their first up close glimpse of the 2017 squad at Fan Day/Selfie Saturday, which is set for Aug. 19. Fan Day/Selife Saturday will feature an open practice at 10:45 a.m. The Fun Zone is set to open at 9 a.m., and gates to Memorial Stadium will open at 10 a.m. The open practice will run from 10:45 a.m. to noon, and players and coaches will be takin photos and signing autographs from 12:15-1:15 p.m. around the perimeter of the field. Parking for the event is free and open, with the exception of Lot 91, which will be reserved for Hawk Week activities.
Kansas will begin the 2017 season on Saturday, Sept. 2 with a home game against Southeast Missouri State. The Jayhawks will also host nonconference opponent Central Michigan (Sept. 9/Family Weekend).
Five Big 12 rivals will visit Lawrence, including West Virginia (Sept. 23/Jayhawks for a Cure), Texas Tech (Oct. 7/Homecoming, K-Club Weekend), Kansas State (Oct. 28/Sunflower Showdown), Baylor (Nov. 4/Salute to Service) and Oklahoma (Nov. 18/Senior Day, Youth Football Day).
