The Kansas Jayhawks and the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs have scheduled a home-and-home football series for the 2027 and 2028 seasons, FBSchedules.com has learned.
A copy of the contract was obtained from The University of Kansas via a state of Kansas Open Records Act request.
The series will kick off with Kansas hosting Louisiana Tech at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium in Lawrence, Kan., on September 18, 2027. The series will conclude the following season when the Jayhawks travel to take on the Bulldogs at Joe Aillet Stadium in Ruston, La., on September 16, 2028.
Kansas and Louisiana Tech have met four times previously on the gridiron, and each game was contested in Lawrence. In their most recent matchup in 2013, Kansas slipped by Louisiana Tech 13-10 to extend their lead in the overall series to 3-1.
Kansas last played a member of Conference USA in 2013. The Jayhawks lost that contest on the road against the Rice Owls, 23-14.
The addition of the series with Louisiana Tech gives Kansas two non-conference games for both the 2027 and 2028 seasons. The Jayhawks also have a home-and-home series scheduled with the Washington State Cougars for the same period, with games set for Sept. 11, 2027 in Pullman, Wa., and for Sept. 9, 2028, in Lawrence.
Kansas is the first known non-conference opponent scheduled for Louisiana Tech in 2027 and 2028.
With the addition of Kansas, Louisiana Tech now has 12 future games scheduled against members of Power Five conferences — at Baylor and at Vanderbilt in 2020, at Mississippi State and at NC State in 2021, at Baylor and at Clemson in 2022, vs. Baylor and at Nebraska in 2023, at NC State in 2024, and vs. NC State in 2025.
