Maybe...
We have replace the New Hampshire game with a game vs the Salukis.
"The Aug. 29 season opener will mark the earliest Kansas has played a football game since the 1999 season, when KU played at Notre Dame on Aug. 28. The Jayhawks are 73-50-7 in season-openers all-time.

“We are excited for the opportunity to start fall camp practices and prepare to take on a good Southern Illinois football team,” KU coach Les Miles said in a statement Saturday. “We feel that playing this game will prove beneficial for both programs for many reasons, especially due to SIU’s proximity to Lawrence.”

SIU’s campus, in Carbondale, Ill., sits roughly 390 miles southeast of Lawrence.

Kansas leads the all-time series with Southern Illinois, 3-0, and the teams last met in 2000. SIU is coming off of a 7-5 2019 season, in which it won five of its last six games."

Much tougher opponent than originally scheduled, IMO.

Guess we have to have actual practice before we have an actual game. I will hope for it and try to stay positive.

If they do manage to actually play this game, there's no way they allow spectators.

True. Hard to see any games played in front of a crowd this year.
