Big 12 lunchtime links: A look back at a vintage KU-KSU battle


Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Griffin

As anybody who has read this blog for any amount of time knows, I'm a sucker for the history of college football.

That's why I was attracted to a great series in this morning's Kansas City Star.

The newspaper has a regular series called "Star Stories" where they link stories from the newspaper's storied past. Today's edition included stories and pictures from the 1958 Kansas-Kansas State game.

It had some great content and was an even better idea. Now if newspapers only made their archives free to the average reader all the time ... ah, but I'm getting way ahead of myself.

Check these stories and pictures out on the Star's Web site. You can almost hear Elvis Presley and Danny and the Juniors playing in the background.

And here are some other links from around the Big 12. Enjoy them.
