What channel is Kansas vs. Kansas State on today? Time, TV schedule for college basketball game

If the first meeting between Kansas and Kansas State is any indication, Tuesday night’s matchup between the two Big 12 rivals could be one of the highlights of the college basketball season.

Kansas State, one of the nation’s biggest surprises, took down the Jayhawks in overtime two weeks ago. The Wildcats overcame a 38-point explosion by Kansas star Jalen Wilson, along with a disappointing night from one of their own stars in Markquis Nowell.

Playing at Allen Fieldhouse has the potential to be an entirely different challenge. Kansas has lost only once at home this season, a blowout defeat at the hands of TCU, and the Jayhawks didn’t lose a single Big 12 game at home last season.

First-year coach Jerome Tang has engineered an incredible turnaround at Kansas State, and a regular season sweep of Kansas would take his national coach of the year campaign to new heights.

Here’s all you need to know about how to watch Kansas host Kansas State on Tuesday night.

What channel is Kansas vs. Kansas State on tonight?

Kansas vs. Kansas State will not be available on cable but can be streamed exclusively on ESPN+.

Jon Sciambi, Jay Bilas and Kris Budden will be on the call for the contest.

While this promises to be one of the biggest games on the Big 12 schedule, the low expectations many had for Kansas State entering the season meant this game was not originally scheduled to be on national television..

The Wildcats were picked near the bottom of the conference in what was expected to be a rebuilding year under Tang, but they’ve surged into the national conversation and look like a contender to win the Big 12.

With both Kansas and Kansas State fighting for the Big 12 crown, ESPN+ will exclusively host a blockbuster matchup.
