The Kansas State Wildcats and the Vanderbilt Commodores have scheduled a home-and-home football series for 2017 and 2020, K-State announced today.
In the first game of the series, Vanderbilt will host Kansas State at Vanderbilt Stadium in Nashville on Sept. 16, 2017. The Commodores will then travel to face the Wildcats at Bill Snyder Family Football Stadium in Manhattan on Sept. 19, 2020.
Kansas State and Vanderbilt have met once previously — a matchup in Nashville in 1984. The Commodores won that game 26-14.
The addition of Vanderbilt tentatively completes the 2017 non-conference schedule for K-State. The Wildcats are set to open the season vs. Central Arkansas on Sept. 2 and later host Charlotte on Sept. 23.
The Commodores now have three non-conference games scheduled for 2017. Vandy is slated to open at Middle Tennessee on Sept. 2 and later hosts Western Kentucky on Nov. 4.
The Kansas State-Vanderbilt matchup in 2020 is the first announced non-conference game for Vandy and second for K-State that season. The Wildcats are also scheduled to host Buffalo on Sept. 12.
