It's weird how all the Cardinals fans in Kansas City have mysteriously disappeared.

Kansas football will travel to Texas Tech for a 2:30 p.m., game on Saturday, Oct. 18. The KU-TTU matchup will be televised on FOX Sports Net (FSN), the Big 12 Conference announced on Monday.
Now that interim head coach Clint Bowen is officially into his stint as the Jayhawks' head coach, it's time to examine a few of the more minor details of his takeover that got lost in the celebratory manner in which he transitioned into the job.
Bowen did not name a starter for this week on Monday morning's Big 12 coaches teleconference but did spell out very clearly what the guy who wins the job would have to do.
Bowen admitted Monday that KU’s ineffective passing was starting to influence its running game. The Jayhawks averaged just 1.9 yards per rush Saturday, as the Mountaineers played mostly man coverage with a single safety — a formation that basically dared KU to throw it downfield.
For now, though, Bowen makes it clear. Every position on the field is open to competition, and that includes quarterback. So offensive coordinator John Reagan will spend the week gauging the candidates, with sophomore T.J. Millweard, a transfer from UCLA, perhaps having an opportunity to make his case as well.
“They were trying to sell me on going to their school, but like coach Calipari and coach Self told me, it’s not going to be easy. They said: ‘It’s going to be hard when you get here. You’re not going to like us. There are going to be days you feel like you want to go home. If you are that type of kid to go home this school isn’t for you.’ I appreciate them for telling me that,” Brown said.
Kansas interim head football coach Clint Bowen will meet with the media during the program's weekly media session inside the Anderson Family Football Complex Tuesday. Bowen's opening remarks will begin at approximately 1 p.m. (CT), followed by a question and answer session with media in attendance.

Kansas women's basketball coach Bonnie Henrickson will meet with the media Tuesday inside the Allen Fieldhouse media room to discuss her 2014-15 team and the upcoming season.

The Big 12 reprimanded and fined Iowa State athletic director Jamie Pollard $25,000 -- the largest fine ever doled out by the league -- for ripping officials after the Cyclones' loss Saturday at Oklahoma State.
Athletic director Mark Hollis took to Twitter on Sunday night to express his "embarrassment" with the pockets of empty seats that filled the student section during Saturday's prime-time, nationally televised game against the Cornhuskers.
Forty names, games, teams and minutiae making news in college football (crisis-management guides sold separately in Gainesville, and perhaps available second-hand from the folks in Ann Arbor who used them last week).
What you do is you have B.J. Catalon lay down where his uniform matches the paint in the end zone. Seriously, look at this screenshot. If he wasn't circled by the telestrator, you wouldn't see him.
According to the Associated Press, WMU players “knocked some locker room sinks loose, broke a trophy and caused other damage” during a victory celebration after a 45-33 win – its first of the season. There was so much damage that Idaho athletic director Rob Spear was compelled to bill Western Michigan $500 “for cleanup and repair costs.”
