KU-Iowa State kickoff set for 7 p.m. Nov. 23

November 12, 2013


The Kansas University football team's final road game of 2013 will kick off under the lights in Ames, Iowa, KU officials announced this afternoon.

KU's Nov. 23 match-up with Iowa State is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. and will be televised by Fox Sports 1.

The game features the bottom two teams in the conference standings — both teams enter this weekend 0-6 in Big 12 play — but, according to a source, was scheduled for a prime-time kickoff because there are fewer games throughout college football at 11 a.m. that day and putting another Big 12 match-up in the earlier time slot allows better exposure and less competition for that game.

Kansas will be traveling to Iowa State for the 47th time and leads the Cyclones, 22-21-3, in games played in Ames. KU leads the all-time series with ISU, 49-37-6, but the Cyclones have won three-straight over the Jayhawks.

KU (2-7 overall, 0-6 Big 12) will play host to West Virginia this weekend, in a game scheduled for an 11 a.m. kickoff Saturday at Memorial Stadium.
