“This is a tremendous statement regarding both the exciting trajectory of Kansas Football and the incredible passion of Jayhawk fans,” Kansas athletic director Travis Goff said in a statement. “We are excited to host an atmosphere at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium that will rival the best in college football.
