A LOOK AT THE SERIES
- Kansas leads the all-time series, 64-45-5, but Kansas State has won each of the last eight meetings and 21 of the last 26 dating back to 1991.
- The Wildcats’ average margin of victory over the last eight years is 30.25, while they have hit the 45-point mark in five of those contests.
- Head coach Bill Snyder is 21-4 all-time against the Jayhawks – including a 9-3 mark in Lawrence – as his 21 victories over the Jayhawks are tied for the most by an active head coach over any one opponent (Snyder vs. Iowa State).
- The series is one of six in the nation that has currently been played continuously for at least 100 years and the longest among Big 12 opponents.
