Another six-day selection for ESPN and FOX.
For the second straight week, ESPN and FOX are utilizing a six-day selection for a Texas Longhorns game, this time the Nov. 13 contest against the Kansas Jayhawks at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. The Big 12 Conference will announce the kickoff time and channel for the game following the contests on Nov. 6.
The game in Austin will mark the 20th meeting between the two programs in a series that began in 1901. Texas has a 16-3 advantage in the all-time series after last season’s game in Lawrence was canceled due to COVID-19 issues within the Longhorns program, including nine players and 13 staff members testing positive. The game was ruled a no contest.
Under first-year head coach Lance Leipold, Kansas is 1-7 overall and 0-5 in Big 12 play with the single win coming in the season opener against FCS opponent South Dakota. If the Jayhawks are unable to upset the Wildcats in a rivalry game this weekend, Leipold’s team will head to Austin in the midst of an eight-game losing streak.
