The Kansas football program solidified plans to add Fresno State to its nonconference schedule for multiple years — eventually.
KU and Fresno State announced jointly Thursday a three-game series between the two programs, which will begin in the 2025 season.
The Jayhawks will travel to Fresno, Calif., for their only road game in the series, in 2029.
The Bulldogs will take on KU in Lawrence in both 2025 and 2031.
Kansas and Fresno State have never squared off. The first meeting between the programs is set for Aug. 23, 2025, at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium.
