“The ethics of an itinerant ‘horse’ trader” — A history of the Kansas State-Kansas rivalry

Saturday, Kansas State and Kansas will take the field for the 110th consecutive time, becoming the third-longest continuous rivalry in college football by season’s end. Meeting a total of 118 times counting this season, the rivalry has rarely been competitive, with the only real back-and-forth stretch in the series taking place between 1925 and 1945.

You might even say the rivalry’s only real consistent tradition is its almost complete lack of on-field intrigue.

The two teams have a strong history of futility in the modern era making for some truly putrid football throughout the series. No one has probably bothered to walk through the whole history with any sort of detail.
