Kansas versus Nebraska: only two other schools have played more in NCAA football history. 6News reporter Crispin Lopez finds out whether a Jayhawk victory tomorrow will stir up a celebration similar to the one that happened in 2005.
Kansas University sophomore Brady Morningstar has decided to take a reshirt for the 2007-08 season. Morningstar, a Free State High graduate, will practice but not play in games this year. He will have three years of eligibility remaining starting next season.
In tonight's 6News and tomorrow's Lawrence Journal-World, a coffee shop is looking to secure its longtime ability to serve alcohol on its downtown sidewalk, and a preview of the showdown between KU and Nebraska.
J'Mison Morgan, a 6-foot-10, 270-pound shot-blocking and rebounding machine out of Dallas' South Oak Cliff High, has decided to play college basketball at Louisiana State University.
Rodrick Stewart stopped in his tracks while exiting Kansas University's basketball interview room to thoughtfully ponder one final question. That is: "Can you remember the last time you scored in double figures in a college game?"
Brady Morningstar was the only Kansas University basketball player not to enter a 94-59 exhibition rout of Pittsburg State on Thursday night at Allen Fieldhouse. It likely will be a pattern that continues all season.
The guys with Kansas on their chests defeated the team with red jerseys by 35 points. Wouldn't you love to read that identical sentence in Sunday's paper?
No one thought Ohio State or its quarterback would be all that good this season. One of the biggest reasons nobody expected the Buckeyes to be contenders is because they were losing a Heisman Trophy winner at quarterback and replacing him with a guy who had more birthdays (23) than he had minutes on the field (20).
Oklahoma was in a run-out-the-clock situation with a first down at its own 12-yard-line with 1:05 to play in the first half at Iowa State.

Sean Glennon wore a Georgia Tech jersey. There was no doubt he was playing for Virginia Tech.

Given Pittsburg State's history against Kansas University's men's basketball team, it didn't seem likely the NCAA Division II Gorillas would stand much of a chance against the No. 4-ranked team in Division I.

The stakes for the NCAA Tournament's play-in game have increased.
An asterisk was put next to Kansas University freshman Erin Mertz's name on the three-meter diving results to signify a first-place tie with Arkansas' Madison Palmer. For KU fans at Robinson Natatorium during Thursday's swimming and diving dual between Kansas and Arkansas, the asterisk takes on a different meaning.
Those making plans for the Border War football game might have to wait a little longer to get them finalized. ABC has decided to wait until Nov. 17 to decide which game it wants to televise on Nov. 24 between Kansas University-Missouri and Oklahoma-Oklahoma State. As a result, the kickoff times for both rivalry games also are on hold.
Recruiting is so inexact, so unpredictable and so unapologetic, it can sting like an oversized wasp sometimes. Kansas University linebacker Joe Mortensen was almost that tragic case of a solid football prospect - and equally good person - who completely fell through the cracks. And, right or wrong, almost all of his anger toward his recruiting experience is aimed directly at the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
Leland Johnson has held KU football season tickets for more than 25 years. He has sat in his seats under the press box at Memorial Stadium for virtually every game, arriving before kickoff and not leaving until the band has concluded "Home on the Range." But Wednesday, the Goddard resident received his tickets to the Nov. 24 KU-MU game at Arrowhead Stadium, and he's disappointed.
Twins Marcus and Markieff Morris, who announced their decision to attend Kansas University on Wednesday night, were still beaming about their choice on Thursday morning.
