Jets will fly over the University of Kansas campus Friday and again Saturday morning ahead of kickoff for the KU football homecoming game.

A group of between two and four F-16s will do a practice run over campus Friday, Oct. 27, likely between 12:45 and 1:15 p.m., according to a brief news release from KU on Thursday.

The jets will return to fly over the football stadium before the 11 a.m. kickoff on Saturday, Oct. 28.
