HOORAY! Unless you’re one of THOSE people, and now you’re really mad.

As if this morning’s bombshell wasn’t enough for K-State fans to take in, ESPN’s Jake Trotter has now lobbed another explosive device over the transom:

That’s right, the UNHOLY ALLIANCE is back. For some, this is a good thing; for others, they’d rather never see Missouri again.

Prior to this announcement, K-State had a non-conference game against a Power 5 team scheduled every year all the way through 2031 with the exception of 2022 and 2023. This announcement, once confirmed, will fill that gap. The future Power 5 opponents:

  • 2018 vs Mississippi State Bulldogs
  • 2019 at Mississippi State
  • 2020 vs Stanford
  • 2021 vs Vanderbilt
  • 2022 vs Missouri
  • 2023 at Missouri
  • 2024 vs Arizona
  • 2025 at Arizona
  • 2026 vs Washington State
  • 2027 at Colorado
  • 2028 vs Colorado
  • 2029 at Washington State
  • 2030 vs Rutgers
  • 2031 at Rutgers

For those of you who were hoping to complete the Power 5 Conference Collector’s Set by scoring a couple of those rare ACC cards, you’ll just have to wait 15 years or more. We’re sorry.

UPDATE: It is official, having been announced by the athletic department. The game in Manhattan will take place on September 10, 2022; the return trip to Columbia will be played on September 16, 2023.
