We have looked at Rutgers and other Big Ten East schools non-conference football schedules for the next decade over the summer, but apparently we weren’t thinking far enough ahead. It was announced today that Rutgers and Kansas State have agreed to a home and home series in football 14-15 years from now!
Kansas State, Rutgers add home/home series; 2030 at KSU, 2031 at RU. And yes, Bill Snyder will still be K-State’s coach then— Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyESPN) October 6, 2016
It’s a good decision to schedule against another power five conference team and Kansas State is a solid Big 12 program. Of course, they met in the 2006 Texas Bowl, capping off the one of the best season’s in school history with Rutgers winning 37-10.
Rutgers is obviously planning well ahead into the future and that is a good thing. Hopefully, they will fill out the two open slots remaining for the 2019 schedule soon. Miami is the only non-conference opponent that has been announced to date. For a look at the full 2019 schedule and the issues I’ve addressed with it, click here.
