This weekend is the Border War between the Kansas Jayhawks and Missouri Tigers for possibly the last time. The Kansas City Chiefs also host the Pittsburgh Steelers in a big game on Sunday Night Football. Thus it's concerning to some that the field conditions are what they are for both games given the recent rainy weather in KC. Jayhawk Slant notes via Twitter that, "With recent rain field conditions will be interesting today. Also hearing Chiefs concerned about field for Sun vs. Steelers."
For Missouri, poor field conditions are nothing new as every opposing coach has complained about the state of Faurot Field after exiting a contest there with multiple injuries. As for major televised games, it could be a source of contention.
