The Jayhawks and Wildcats will have some attention for their Jan. 29th matchup in Lawrence. The Big 12 announced that ESPN College Gameday will be in attendance for the Kansas-Kansas State game.
They're one of two Big 12 campuses the ESPN show will visit (Baylor/Texas being the other).
"College Gameday coming to two of Big 12 campuses in 2011 shows the quality of basketball that is played throughout the conference,” Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe said in a release. “After ranking No. 1 in the RPI and placing a league-record seven teams in the NCAA championship a year ago, we hope to continue that success this season.”
Never miss an opportunity to hype the Big 12.
