That's been the case at this school. Evidently it was around 5-1 last year but less than 2:1 this year. The exact e-mail quote was "actually pretty equal". I'm guessing a lot of it can be attributed to Mizzou's success this year compared to last year at this time.
The university has grown by 45% in the last decade, and the school has been considering capping enrollment. KU's enrollment has been in decline for several years now since peaking immediately after the Orange Bowl season.
It's no coincidence. Football success does a lot for the popularity of schools.
