The South Dakota athletic department has announced that the Coyote football team will play the University of Kansas on Sept. 7, 2013, in Lawrence, Kan.
The game against the Jayhawks is the latest quality FBS school added to the South Dakota football schedule. South Dakota beat Big Ten foe Minnesota and faced Central Florida in 2010 and the Coyotes will play at Air Force and Wisconsin this fall.
“This game with Kansas fits perfectly into our football scheduling plan,” South Dakota Athletic Director David Sayler said. “Once we join the Missouri Valley Football Conference in 2012, Coyote fans can look forward to one FBS team a year from the Midwest that will offer them a chance to drive to catch South Dakota football in action on the road. Our football program is excited to continue to build on the success of beating Minnesota last year.”
In 2012, South Dakota will play at Big Ten foe Northwestern, and in 2015, the Coyotes will play at Big 12 foe Kansas State.
The Coyotes have played Kansas once – in 1900, when the Jayhawks prevailed 41-0. Kansas finished 3-9 in 2010, the school’s first under Coach Turner Gill. The Jayhawks beat No. 15-ranked Georgia Tech, 28-25, in Week 2.
South Dakota, entering its eighth season under Coach Ed Meierkort opens the 2011 season on Sept. 3 at Air Force.
