Welcome to Kansas-Kansas State football week, or as I like to call it, "The week I don’t wear blue or purple to work for fear of accusations of favoritism."
With each university about 2 1/2 hours from Wichita and with similar fan bases here, we’ve always tried to keep our coverage of both athletic departments similar. But this is the week where we play it strictly down the middle — or we hear about it.
Since buildup for Saturday’s game began on Monday, we’ve had an equal amount of KU and K-State stories. That’ll continue through Saturday’s gameday preview, which will include detailed looks at undoubtedly the best matchup in the game: K-State’s do-everything receiver, Jordy Nelson, against KU’s All-America candidate of a cornerback, Aqib Talib.
Enjoy the game.
