Kansas Football is coming off a 9-4 season in 2023, winning the Guaranteed Rate Bowl against UNLV for the program’s first bowl victory since 2008. The Jayhawks won nine games in a season for just the seventh time in program history. Head Coach Lance Leipold will welcome back several key members of the 2023 team, including running back Devin Neal, receivers Lawrence Arnold, Luke Grimm and Quentin Skinner and quarterback Jalon Daniels on offense.

Defensively, Kansas will welcome back two-time first-team All-Big 12 cornerback Cobee Bryant, along with the team’s other starting cornerback, Mello Dotson. The team will also return defensive standouts Jereme Robinson, Marvin Grant Jr., JB Brown, Taiwan Berryhill and others.

With the transformative University of Kansas Gateway Project underway, the Jayhawks will play all six of its 2024 home games in the Kansas City metropolitan area. The first two games against Lindenwood and UNLV will be played at Children’s Mercy Park – the home of Sporting Kansas City and the MLS – while the four Big 12 Conference games against Colorado, TCU, Houston and Iowa State will take place at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium.
