Throwback Thursday: Beat Oklahoma State Edition

Each week we’ll be posting a photograph from University Archives that shows a scene from KU’s past. We’ve also scanned more than 34,800 images from KU’s University Archives and made them available online; be sure to check them out!

We’re excited about tonight’s Homecoming parade and this Saturday’s game against Oklahoma State! This week’s photo looks back at another year when the Jayhawks faced the Cowboys in the Homecoming game.
