That’s five ranked teams … and the Jayhawks, who are 37 1/2-point underdogs in the game. The Horned Frogs are 6-0 and ranked fourth in the nation. KU is 1-5 and coming off a 45-point loss at Iowa State.

Jayhawks fans are not thrilled that Saturday’s game will be on national TV. When The Star’s Jesse Newell tweeted the news of the game being shown on Fox, KU fans responded with a whole bunch of memes that expressed their dissatisfaction with the decision.

Fans also directed their angst at KU, and the result was some funny responses:

somehow being embarrassed on primetime seems much worse than being embarrassed at 11 am. Good thing I work that night...
