The Border War 2007
Friday night rally
Kansas University fans are invited to a pep rally Friday evening at the Corinth Square Shopping Center at 83rd Street and Mission Road in Prairie Village.
Fans will have an opportunity to hear messages from football coach Mark Mangino and some players, including Lawrence native Brandon McAnderson; listen to the KU band; and take advantage of food and other activities.
The rally will take place from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. and is free, though there is a charge for food and other offerings by vendors.
In an example of how big the Border Showdown is, Kansas City's public television station, KCPT (Sunflower Broadband Channel 7), will air "Bad Blood: The Border War that Triggered the Civil War."
The documentary explores the pre-Civil War roots of the conflict between Kansas and Missouri.
The 90-minute documentary will air at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

Customers could get 30 percent off their merchandise purchases today because KU scored six touchdowns in its victory against Iowa State on Saturday.
On Tuesdays, KU Bookstore offers 5 percent off per touchdown up to 30 percent after KU games.
