Share this post or save for later

Kansas fans “packed the Booth” Saturday for only the second sold-out football game in nearly 13 years, and their team did not disappoint.

The crimson-clad Jayhawks improved to 4-0 on the season, topping the Duke Blue Devils 35-27. It’s the first time KU has won more than three games in a season since 2009.

The sellout was the first at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium since Nov. 2, 2019, against Kansas State, and was the second sellout in nearly 13 years, according to Kansas Athletics.

Fans can celebrate at the inaugural Rock Chalk Block Party, set to begin with games and activities at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 30 in the 1000 block of Massachusetts Street (between 10th and 11th streets). The free event will include a KU pep rally starting around 7:50, and country artist Chris Lane will perform at 8:15 p.m.

The Jayhawks closed nonconference play with Saturday’s game against Duke. Their homecoming game against Iowa State will kick off at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1.

TCU will head to Kansas on Saturday, Oct. 8 before the Jayhawks hit the road again to face Oklahoma in Norman on Oct. 15.

As a reminder, Lawrence Transit is providing bus service from downtown to the stadium for weekend home games for $1 fare. Find more details at this link.
