KU-Oklahoma to kick off at 2:30 p.m., Oct. 19


Kansas University's stretch of three consecutive 11 a.m. kickoffs will come to an end on Oct. 19, when the Jayhawks play their next home game at Memorial Stadium.

Call it the Oklahoma effect.

The Big 12 Conference today announced that KU's Oct. 19 game against OU will kickoff at 2:30 p.m. and will be shown on national television by either ABC, ESPN or ESPN2. The network decision will come at a later date but the time is set in stone.

KU plays at 11 a.m. for the third straight week this Saturday at TCU, a game that follows up 11 a.m. home starts vs. Louisiana Tech and Texas Tech.

Oklahoma (5-0), which plays Texas in Dallas this week, is ranked 12th in the latest Associated Press poll.

OU is the worst "good" team ever.

However KU is one of the worst bad teams EVER!

Actually that are remotely accurate. Have you watched OU this year?

Have you watched KU?

I will watch the game until OU scores their fiftieth point (should be early in the second quarter) and then I am going to attend an Oktoberfest celebration. My day will not be a total downer, eh?

50th point in the second quarter? You re a glass half full guy! Late first may be more like it.

Over or under 50% OU fans in attendance?

Pull every trick play you can draw up in the dirt. Bring the house and blitz on EVERY down, and just tell the corners to stay close and don't worry about interference calls. 15 yard penalty is better than a 60 yard TD pass. You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain. I will be up there, sadly with family who are OU fans, but oh what a great 3 1/2 hour drive it would be if we pulled off one of the greatest upsets in college history?!!!

If a bad Kansas team can upset #2 Oklahoma in 1984, a bad Kansas team can upset #12 Oklahoma in 2013. Yes, it's a snowball's chance in hell, but it doesn't hurt to dream.

The 1984 team wasn't bad, they were by no means great, but they weren't bad either. They were 5-6 overall and 4-3 in Big 8 play, not exactly a bad season and any of us would take a similar season right now.

That's why the games are played ill be up there cheering on the hawks, nothing to lose every thing to gain, OU relies heavily on their secondary, should be able to run some on their line, but I could be lying?

They'll have plenty of chances. They will likely be the underdog against every team they play.

Heard all this upset talk about this same time last week. I am optimistically pessimistic. Considering we couldn't run the ball against TT. And because Blake Bell cant throw the ball accurately further than 20 yards. The short passing game will be our demise once again. However it could get interesting with a couple turnovers, and if they bring the same defensive effort they brought in the first quarter against TT. Either way I'll be there. How long I stay will depend on the score at the end of the third quarter.
