K-State football’s nonconference schedule keeps improving as the Wildcats announced today that they will be adding Pac-12 member Arizona to their schedule in the 2024 and 2025 seasons.

“We are excited to announce a home-and-home series with Arizona of the Pac-12 Conference,” John Currie, K-State athletic director, said to K-State Sports. “It is important for us to continue to schedule nonconference games with opponents that make sense for K-State, and we feel playing a nationally-recognized program like Arizona is a great opportunity for our program and the entire K-State Nation.”

The two Wildcat schools have faced off seven times in their histories, with K-State going 1-5-1 in those games. Their most recent matchup ended in a 31-0 blowout loss in Tucson, Arizona.

Recently, K-State has done a fair amount of beefing up their schedule, adding home-and-home series with Stanford in 2016 and 2021, Mississippi State in 2018 and 2019 and Vanderbilt in 2017 and 2020.
