The Kansas Jayhawks play their home 2024 football games at the University of Kansas Memorial Stadium. Memorial Stadium holds just over 50,000 KU football fans and has become a fearsome experience for visiting teams. Kansas has long been known as a basketball school because of the amazing Jayhawks basketball team, but KU football has been on the rise. The Jayhawks are making big noise in the Big 12 Conference and fun to watch play. A tradition to see when you attend a KU game is to watch the crowd "Waving the Wheat" whenever the Jayhawks score. The Kansas home bench is on the Memorial Stadium sideline with sections 1-10.
