KU football adds future home dates with Southern Miss., New Mexico St.

March 4, 2008


Kansas University's football team has added Southern Mississippi to its 2009 and 2010 schedules, the athletic department released today. It will be the first time the two schools have met in football.

Southern Miss, a member of Conference USA, finished 7-6 last year and played in the Bowl.

Southern Miss will travel to Lawrence for a game on Sept. 26, 2009. Kansas will travel to Hattiesburg, Miss., for a Sept. 18, 2010 game.

Also being added to the future slates is a game with New Mexico State, which will be played on Sept. 25, 2010, in Lawrence.

Kansas already had a home-and-home series scheduled with Duke starting in 2009 and a four-game series with Rice starting in 2010. KU's nonconference slate for 2008 will feature home games against Sam Houston State, Florida International and Louisiana Tech and a road game at South Florida.

Great scheduling! Descent teams, and will also help pick up some of the recruits the SEC skips on.

A good move in the right direction. You don't have to play Ohio State and USC, but some decent bowl-caliber teams with winning records so that our SOS isn't so pathetic.

I would not call them that descent. I would rather KU play lower BCS teams then an average Conference USA. I like the road game at South Florida next year.
