The Kansas State Wildcats and the Stanford Cardinal have scheduled a home-and-home football series for 2016 and 2021, the two schools announced today.
In the first game of the series, Stanford will host Kansas State at Stanford Stadium in Palo Alto, California on Friday, Sept. 2, 2016. The game will be the first meeting between the two schools and the season-opener.
Kansas State will host Stanford to close out the series on Sept. 4, 2021 at Bill Snyder Family Football Stadium in Manhattan.
“We are excited to announce a home-and-home series with Stanford of the Pac-12 Conference,” K-State Athletics Director John Currie said. “With more than 7,500 friends and alumni in the state of California, and our game there next season taking place over Labor Day weekend, this series gives the K-State Nation a great opportunity to again showcase its national reputation as one of America’s top traveling fan bases.”
The addition of Stanford completes Kansas State’s 2016 football schedule. The Wildcats also host Florida Atlantic (Sept. 17) and Missouri State (Sept. 24) in non-conference play.
Stanford has also completed their 2016 slate. The Cardinal are also scheduled to travel to Notre Dame (Oct. 15) and host Rice (Nov. 26).
