There will be flyovers in Lawrence Friday and Saturday ahead of the Kansas football team’s Salute to Service game against Texas Tech University.

There will be a practice flyover, likely between 1 and 2 p.m. Friday. The planes will fly over David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium shortly before the game’s 11 a.m. kickoff on Saturday, Nov. 11, which is Veterans Day. Flyovers are at no cost to KU.


Military members and their families can purchase specially priced tickets to the Salute to Service game.

The No. 19-ranked Jayhawks are 7-2 coming off a road win at Iowa State. Texas Tech is 4-5 on the season.

The game will air on FS1. Listen to the game broadcast at and see live stats at this link.

The following week, the Jayhawks will face K-State in the almost-sold-out Sunflower Showdown. That will be on Nov. 18, with kickoff time still TBD.
