The Kansas football team warms up in Ames, Iowa, on Oct. 3, 2015, before its game at Iowa State.
Unless the Kansas University football team can score a major upset in Saturday’s 3 p.m. kickoff at Memorial Stadium against rival Kansas State, the Jayhawks will finish the season winless for the second time in history and the first since 1954. Kansas State football coach Bill Snyder was a sophomore at Lafayette High in St. Joseph, Mo., when KU went 0-10 in its first season under coach Chuck Mather. Neither first-year Kansas head coach David Beaty nor any of his assistant coaches had been born. Edward Ferdinand Arn was governor of Kansas, Dwight D. Eisenhower president of the United States.
