The Kansas State Wildcats have added the South Dakota Coyotes to their 2018 football schedule, FBSchedules.com has learned.
Kansas State will host South Dakota at Bill Snyder Family Football Stadium in Manhattan in their season-opener on Sept. 1, 2018. K-State will pay USD a $425,000 guarantee for the game, according to a copy of the contract obtained via an open records request.
South Dakota is a member of the Missouri Valley Football Conference in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). The Coyotes finished the 2015 season 5-6 overall and 3-5 in the MVFC.
The addition of South Dakota tentatively completes Kansas State’s non-conference football schedule for the 2018 season. The Wildcats also host Mississippi State on Sept. 8 and UTSA on Sept 15.
Kansas State’s non-conference schedules are also filled for both the 2016 and 2017 seasons. K-State needs one additional game for both 2019 and 2020 and two games in 2021.
