Yes, it's senior day, and that means Ellis, Traylor, Mickelson, and Manning won't be running through that tunnel ever again. It's also Bob Davis' final broadcast from Allen Fieldhouse as well. He'll go on the air at 2:30, half an hour before the game starts. I know I, for one, am gonna be listening to the radio throughout this one.

Bill Self is 22-7 all-time against ISU, including 21-7 while at KU.

Kansas is 8-3 versus ranked opponents so far this season.

Kansas hasn't lost on senior day since 1984.
