The Sunflower Showdown is always a big game, but today’s battle between Kansas and Kansas State goes way beyond bragging rights.
If the Wildcats win they will further increase their lead atop the Big 12 North standings and be in terrific shape to go on and win the division.
If the Jayhawks win they will become bowl eligible and get back into the conversation for a North title.
Both teams have only a few games remaining, and anything is possible. But it will be awfully hard for either of these squads to get to where they want to be without first picking up a win in Manhattan.
