KU football, Hawaii to play home-and-home series starting in 2016

Self lets Jayhawks have some fun in Senior Night rout

Even if they don' t have the tourney, they can't schedule more non-conference games. The post-season tournaments are exempt from the maximum games they can schedule (and 1 "pre-season" tournament counts as 1 game).
