Don’t expect Kansas State and Nebraska to play a football game against each other anytime soon.
With the Cornhuskers on their way out of the Big 12, scheduling unknowns and hurt feelings will put an end to their rivalry with the Wildcats for at least a few years.
I asked K-State athletic director John Currie last month about the possibility of continuing the series as nonconference opponents, and he said he had a long list of priorities that ranked higher than wondering about that.
Earlier this week football coach Bill Snyder said he wouldn’t be opposed to facing Nebraska again at some point, but he wouldn’t anticipate it happening in the near future.
But they have to meet somewhere down the line, don’t they? The schools are less than three hours away from each other, and fans regularly attend games at both locations. According to USA Today and The Oklahoman, Nebraska is open to facing Oklahoma in nonconference play. Why not K-State?
