LAWRENCE, Kan. — The Kansas Jayhawks return home to David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium for their season finale on Saturday, December 5, as they host the No. 23/23 Texas Longhorns in Lawrence, Kansas. The game is slated to kickoff at 2:30 p.m., on ESPNU.
The game between the Jayhawks (0-9, 0-8 Big 12) and the Longhorns (6-3, 5-3 Big 12) will be the 20th meeting between the two teams, including the 11th in Lawrence, Kansas. Texas owns the series record at 16-3, including a 7-3 mark in Lawrence. The Jayhawks last defeated the Longhorns on November 19, 2016 in Lawrence, behind a game-winning 25-yard field goal from kicker Matthew Wyman.
The two teams hooked up for a thriller last year in Austin with Texas escaping with a 50-48 win over Kansas in a down-to-the-wire finish. The fourth quarter of last year’s game featured 50 total points. The Jayhawks took the lead on a 22-yard touchdown pass from Carter Stanley to Stephon Robinson Jr., with 1:11 to go and went for two to take a one-point lead. But a 33-yard field goal from Cameron Dicker as time expired gave Texas the victory.
Last year’s game followed suit as three of the last four meetings between the two teams have been decided by one score. The Longhorns, also coming off an open week, have won three straight games after a four-overtime loss to Oklahoma in October.
Saturday’s game marks the final game scheduled for the Jayhawks this season, including their final of four home games at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium.
Kansas vs. Texas will kickoff on ESPNU at 2:30 p.m., with Roy Philpott (Play-by-Play) and Kelly Stouffer (Analyst) on the call.
