Kansas-Iowa State football clash to kickoff at 2:30 p.m. on Oct. 1 on ESPN networks

The Kansas football team’s home game against Iowa State set for Oct. 1 at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium will kickoff at 2:30 p.m., the schools announced Monday.

The KU-ISU game will be televised on either ESPN2 or ESPNU, marking three consecutive weeks of nationally televised games for the 3-0 Jayhawks.

KU’s 48-30 win over Houston was on ESPNU and this week’s home game against Duke — 11 a.m. kickoff of DBKMS — will be televised by FS1.

Game times and channels are typically announced a little less than two weeks ahead of time, with networks and conferences waiting as long as possible to put the best matchups in the best time slots.

If Kansas can continue its winning ways, the Jayhawks likely will find their way into later start times as the season progresses.

KU’s first two games of the season were available only as streaming options on Big 12 Now via ESPN+.
