LAWRENCE, Kan. — The Kansas Jayhawks and the Duke Blue Devils are both undefeated with 3-0 records so far this college football season, but that will soon change after the two teams face off at 11 a.m. in Lawrence, Kansas.

  • 10 a.m. — The KU Marching Jayhawks will bring team spirit as they perform on the Hill
  • 11 a.m. — It's game time! KU v Duke kicks off.

The KU Athletics Department is encouraging fans to download their mobile tickets before arriving to the stadium.
