LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas football will head to Ames, Iowa, on Saturday, Nov. 4, for a game against Iowa State that will kick off at 6 p.m. CT and be televised on ESPN, the Big 12 announced Saturday night.


This will be the 103rd all-time meeting between Kansas and Iowa State in a series that dates back to 1898.

Kansas will be appearing on ESPN for the second time this season, with the first resulting in a 38-27 Jayhawk victory over BYU on Sept. 23. 


Kansas moved to 6-2 on the year and 3-2 in Big 12 play with a 38-33 victory over No. 6 Oklahoma on Saturday. The win, which qualified the Jayhawks for a bowl game for the second-consecutive season, was KU’s first over Oklahoma since 1997 and first home win over a Top 10 opponent since 1984. 


Iowa State improved to 5-3 on the year and 4-1 in league play with a 30-18 victory at Baylor on Saturday. The Cyclones have now won three straight games and ISU is 3-1 at Jack Trice Stadium this season.
