They will round out their nonconference slate on Sept. 14 with an 11 a.m. kickoff at Mississippi State in game that will be broadcast on either ESPN or ESPN2.

Here’s what is in store for Kansas.

The Jayhawks will begin the season at 11 a.m. against Indiana State on FSN. Their second game will begin at 6 p.m. against Coastal Carolina on ESPN+.
