Since the University of Kansas announced it would be undergoing a $448 million stadium renovation over the next two years, there has been discussion amongst Kansas football fans regarding where the Jayhawks will play home games in 2024.

All signs pointed to Arrowhead Stadium being the venue, the home of the Chiefs in Kansas City, Missouri. The university's Chancellor, Douglas A. Girod, confirmed those rumors with Lawrence Journal-World last month, even though no deal has been agreed upon thus far.

A massive component of the resurgence of KU football is Athletic Director Travis Goff, who made the home-run hire of current head coach Lance Leipold and coordinated the much-needed football facility and stadium upgrades over the past year. His support of the Jayhawks is outspoken on social media, and he even spread some love to the Chiefs after they defeated the Baltimore Ravens to advance to the Super Bowl.

In the tweet, he teased at the possibility of Kansas playing home games at Arrowhead next season.

"Congrats Chiefs! What a squad, what an organization. Grateful for our partnership with one of the great franchises in the world. Can you imagine how incredible it would be for student-athletes to play in their stadium?! And for Kansas football fans to get that experience?" he wrote.

The obvious sarcasm in his post suggests there is something going on behind the scenes. Goff isn't going to try and trick the fans who support the athletic program and give money to the school.

Kansas could also play games at Children's Mercy Park, the home stadium for Sporting Kansas City of the MLS. Keep in mind that nothing is set in stone until the Big 12 announces dates for league play. Until then, we won't hear anything official from the school or conference — but it's becoming very likely that we see the Jayhawks play on Arrowhead grass come September.
