Former conference rivals Missouri and Kansas State, who first played on the gridiron in 1909, announced Thursday dates for a future home-and-home football series during the 2022 and 2023 seasons.
“Mizzou-K-State renews a great natural rivalry between the two schools that are less and 250 miles apart,” said Mizzou Director of Athletics Jim Sterk. “We are excited about the opportunity to resume this long-time series and believe this will be a great series for our fans.”
Missouri heads to Manhattan September 10, 2022, for its’ first meeting with the Wildcats at Bill Snyder Family Stadium since 2011, when Kansas State registered a 24-17 victory.
K-State will make the return trip to Columbia on September 16, 2023.
As former members of the Missouri Valley, Big Six, Big Seven, Big Eight, and Big 12 Conferences, Missouri and Kansas State have met 97 times on the gridiron with Missouri holding a 60-32-5 series advantage. Mizzou has won five of the last six meetings between the teams, including a 38-28 victory at Columbia in 2010.
Mizzou’s 2022 non-conference schedule still needs two games, in addition to its’ previously scheduled September 27 game at Middle Tennessee State. In 2023, the Tigers now have three-of-four non-league match-ups set with Middle Tennessee State visiting Columbia on September 9, followed by Kansas State a week later and a Septermber 23 game at Memphis.
