Unless you've been avoiding all Kansas football content in the past handful of days, you're probably well aware that demolition of the west side of David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium is now under way.

But did you know you can watch the demo unfolding?

Kansas Athletics has set up three live cameras to track the work being done as the university's initial phases of The Gateway District project begin.

The work, which is surgical in nature rather than the implosion technique that people like to ooh and ahh at when big buildings come down, is clearing the way for complete reconstruction of the west side of the stadium, with a new press box, all new suites, seats, concourses, concessions and other amenities scheduled to be completed by the start of the 2025 season.

There's a lot of work to do and a lot to still figure out between now and then, but it's pretty cool to be able to watch the progress. While surreal in nature, seeing it with your own eyes hammers home the point that this is actually happening.

The Jayhawks will continue bowl prep the rest of this week and next before heading down to Phoenix before Christmas to get ready to take on UNLV in the Guaranteed Rate Bowl.

Kickoff for that game is slated for 9 p.m. on Dec. 26 and we'll have all kinds of coverage leading up to it and from the game itself right here at Wave the Wheat!
