Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Sunflower Showdown

Rival Team: Kansas State Wildcats

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 contentious points in the rivalry occurred 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. If you want to go the biggest Jayhawks game of the year, then book your ticket to the Sunflower Showdown.
