The Kansas State football team is slated to renew its rivalry with in-state rival Kansas on Saturday, Nov. 10.

On Monday, the Big 12 Conference and FOX Sports announced the Wildcats and Jayhawks will play in the 11 a.m. time slot in two weeks. The game will also be televised on FSN.

After a 51-14 loss to Oklahoma on Saturday, the Wildcats are 3-5 overall and 1-4 in the Big 12. This Saturday, they hit the road again to take on Texas Christian University. The Horned Frogs match K-State’s overall and conference record.

The Jayhawks (3-5, 1-4) are coming off a 27-26 victory over the Horned Frogs last Saturday.

With a win in this year’s Sunflower Showdown, K-State would make it ten straight against its rival, but Kansas could get its first win in the series since 2008. The Jayhawks have a 65-45-5 all-time advantage in the heated rivalry.

In the meantime, K-State will kick off at 2:30 p.m. on FS1 this Saturday against TCU.
