Once former conference rivals Missouri and Kansas State set dates for a future home-and-home football series for 2022 and 2023. The last time these two programs met was in 2011, the Tigers final season in the SEC. The Tigers lost that game 24-17.
The series will open in Manhattan, KS on September 10, 2022 and the game returns to Columbia the following season on September 16.
“Mizzou-K-State renews a great natural rivalry between two schools that are less than 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.”
The schools were former members of the Missouri Valley, Big Six, Big Seven, Big Eight and Big 12 Conferences, starting their rivalry in 1909. They have played 97 times 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.
