Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Sunflower Showdown

Rival Team: Kansas Jayhawks

The Sunflower Showdown is contested each season between the Kansas Jayhawks and the Kansas State Wildcats. The game is one of the most anticipated of the season with the winner taking home state supremacy and the Governor’s Cup. One of the most contentious points in the rivalry took place in 1980 when the Jayhawks forfeited the 1980 meeting due to an ineligible player. To this day the Jayhawks count it as a win whereas the Wildcats count it as a loss. The Kansas State - Kansas game is the most intense game of the season, so make sure to make it to this one if you can only make it to one game.

Farmageddon

Rival Team: Iowa State Cyclones

The Kansas State-Iowa State rivalry dates back to 1917 and is the eighth longest continuous series in college football. Dubbed “Farmageddon” as a reference to the agricultural roots of each university, the game is one of the best to attend outside of the Kansas State - Kansas game. Join in on cheering the Wildcats against one of their biggest rivals by attending Farmageddon.
