KU Football Schedule 2024

The Kansas Jayhawks beat the UNLV Rebels in the Guaranteed Rate Bowl on Tuesday, December 26, 2023, finishing their season 9-4. Kansas finished No. 23 in the final AP Poll.

8-4 was good enough for the Jayhawks to get into a bowl, but there was a clear gap between when Jalon Daniels was starting and Jason Bean. Daniels, the starter heading into the season, only played three games (all wins) and then missed the rest of the season with a back injury. He does intend to return next season.

The highlight of the season was upsetting then-No. 6 ranked Oklahoma 39-32. Losses in two of the Jayhawks' last three games (16-13 vs. Texas Tech, 31-27 vs. Kansas State) put a damper on the final portion of the season.

It should be a good season next year for Kansas football if Jalon Daniels returns. A notable matchup is Kansas' bowl game rematch with UNLV, while Deion Sanders' Colorado team comes to the Kansas City area near the end of the season. Remember, Kansas will play some of its home games at Arrowhead Stadium, home of the Chiefs, in 2024.
