Gamethread: This is a football game.

TCU and Kansas square off in what is a weirdly important early-conference matchup.

TCU - Kansas is... pivotal?

Yes, yes it is.

On one side, you have a Horned Frogs squad dealing with rumored in-fighting among the coaching staff as they lick their wounds from a rare home loss to SMU a week ago.

On the other, you have a renewed and revived Jayhawks team that got humbled by West Virginia a week after doubling up Boston College.

One team is looking to get bowl eligible for the first time since 2008, the other expects to be fighting for a shot at playing in the Big 12 Championship team as November turns to December.

Today? One tries to even their Big 12 mark at 1-1, while the other looks to get their first conference victory in their first conference game.

Let’s see what happens, shall we?
