Blog – MSU, KSU to play football in 2018, 2019

Mississippi State athletic director Scott Stricklin is no stranger to social media.

Stricklin challenged Kansas State athletic director John Currie to a water a #Chillin4Charity water dumping stunt on Twitter earlier this week.

Currie accepted the challenge and then threw out his own challenge.

“We think that Mississippi State ought to come here at Bill Snyder Family Stadium and play a little football sometime,” Currie said.



The two athletic directors then struck a deal on Twitter to have a home-and-home series for the two teams, although nothing has been finalized and no official word has come from either athletic department.

Stricklin tweeted out that the two teams will meet in Manhattan, Kan. in 2018 and play in Starkville in 2019.

The following Twitter conversation ensued:


The Southeastern Conference has mandated that all schools have series with teams from power conferences beginning in 2016.

MSU will play a series with North Carolina State in 2020 and 2021 and play Arizona in 2022 and 2023. A series for the 2016 and 17 seasons are all that MSU lacks.
