The Kansas Jayhawks and Kansas State Wildcats will face off on Oct. 6, and both teams will have two weeks to prepare.

The Sunflower Showdown, the annual rivalry game between the Kansas State Wildcats and the Kansas Jayhawks, is set to take place at 11 a.m. CT in Bill Snyder Family Stadium on Oct. 6. The two teams are headed in opposite directions, but anything goes in rivalries.

Kansas State comes into the game on a roll, having defeated the Oklahoma Sooners in Norman to remain undefeated at 4-0 on the season. The Wildcats now have an inside track to the Big 12 title, but there are many games left to be played.

Kansas has stumbled to a 1-3 record under first-year head coach Charlie Weis. After a season-opening victory over South Dakota State, they've lost three straight to Rice, TCU and Northern Illinois. The loss to TCU puts them at 0-1 in conference play with a tough stretch ahead where they will face Oklahoma State Oklahoma, and Texas after the Sunflower Showdown.

With both teams having bye weeks before the game, they should be well-prepared for a heated matchup.
