Opurum shines in brighter spotlight

From Class 5A Texas high school football to KU's Memorial Stadium, Toben Opurum has been a workhorse of a running back.

Kansas University’s Big 12 football opener against Iowa State will kick off at 11:30 a.m. on Oct. 10 and will be televised on Versus (Sunflower Broadband channels 38 and 238).

It will be the third straight home game with a start time before noon for the Jayhawks.

KU has a bye week this week, while Iowa State takes on Kansas State on Saturday at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo.

Other Big 12 games on television next week include Texas A&M-Oklahoma State at 11:30 a.m. on Fox Sports Net, Oklahoma-Baylor at 2:30 p.m. on ABC and Texas-Colorado at 6:15 p.m. on ESPN or ESPN2.
