The Kansas University football program on Thursday announced that a deal had been completed for a home-and-home series with Rutgers.
KU will travel to Piscataway, N.J., in 2015 and the Scarlet Knights will play in Lawrence in 2018.
The 2015 home game for Rutgers is scheduled for Sept. 26, in High Point Solutions Stadium, while the Jayhawks will host a return game with the Scarlet Knights in Memorial Stadium on Sept. 15, 2018.
“Having grown up in Middlesex (N.J.) I was intrigued to hear we were in discussions to play Rutgers,” KU coach Charlie Weis said. “I have always pulled for people from New Jersey, including the State University, Rutgers. I am excited about this home-and-home series, although I’m afraid of how many tickets I’m going to have to purchase.”
KU will open the 2012 season at 6 p.m. on Sept. 1 with a home game against South Dakota State.
