LAWRENCE, Kan. – One of college football’s oldest rivalries will be renewed as Kansas and Missouri have agreed to a four-game series beginning in 2025. The Border Showdown rivalry is currently the fourth-longest in the FBS, dating back to 1891.

“This agreement renews one of college football’s most historic rivalries and we believe Jayhawk fans will enjoy the competition,” said Director of Athletics Jeff Long. “This will be a great experience for our students, student-athletes and fans to have the Border Showdown games on campus, and look forward to seeing that excitement at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium.”

The Jayhawks and Tigers will renew their rivalry on September 6, 2025 in Columbia, Missouri in the team’s first meeting since 2011.

Future Series Dates and Location:

  • Sept 6, 2025 at Missouri – Columbia
  • Sept 12, 2026 vs. Missouri – Lawrence
  • Sept 6, 2031 at Missouri – Columbia
  • Sept 11, 2032 vs. Missouri – Lawrence

“This is a tremendous opportunity to reignite one of college football’s oldest rivalries,” said Head Coach Les Miles. “Anytime you bring two football teams on the field with that history, I think it will excite our student-athletes and fans, and will certainly be a great battle on the field.”

In the last meeting between the two teams in 2011, the series was the second-most played rivalry in Division I history, with 120 games being played over the span of 122 years. Missouri holds a slight series advantage at 56-55-9.

The teams first met on October 31, 1891, with Kansas claiming a 22-10 victory. Kansas and Missouri met on the field 93 years in a row, from 1919 to 2011.
