First place in the Big 12 will be on the line when third-ranked Kansas visits No. 11 Kansas State on Tuesday night for one of the most eagerly anticipated Sunflower Showdowns ever.

The Wildcats are 15-2 and 4-0 in the Big 12, and have won eight straight overall. The Jayhawks have won a nation-leading 15 in a row, are 16-1 and also perfect in four Big 12 games.

The last time the teams approached a game of this magnitude at Bramlage Coliseum was in January 2010, when the 11th-ranked Wildcats lost 81-79 to No. 2 Kansas in overtime. They played again in Lawrence that March, and the second-ranked Jayhawks beat the No. 5 Wildcats 82-65.

Only two other times since 1958 have both teams been ranked for a regular-season game.
