Big game in the big town tonight
No, I’m not talking Bedlam here.
I’m talking about The Game.
Kansas vs. Missouri.
Wow, is that right? Kansas? Missouri? The game of the year in the Big 12?
No one saw this coming. When the season began, the Jayhawks-Tigers match-up was something of an afterthought. Sure, Missouri was expected to contend in the Big 12 North. Sure, the game had been moved to a neutral site, Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City.
But really, this was just supposed to be another game in a week of rivalries.
It’s become so much more. The winner could very well be the No. 1 team in all of college football when the day dawns Sunday. After LSU’s home loss to unranked Arkansas — nice one, Les! — No. 2 Kansas is sure to ascend to the top with a victory, and No. 4 Missouri just might leapfrog West Virginia.
Writing those words is very surreal.
As many of you know, I grew up in the state of Kansas. I remember the years when Kansas and Kansas State played each other to see who would finish the season with one win. One year, the teams tied and both finished 0-10-1.
