Kansas State schedules home-and-home series with Vanderbilt

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) Kansas State is becoming quite familiar with the SEC in football.

After wrapping up a home-and-home series with Auburn this past season, the Wildcats announced Friday that they have set up a series with Vanderbilt in addition to its previously scheduled home-and-home series with Mississippi State.

The Wildcats will head to Vanderbilt in 2017 with the Commodores returning the trip in 2020. The games bookend games against the Bulldogs in 2018 and 2019.

The moves should help beef up Kansas State's non-conference schedule. The Wildcats are set to play South Dakota, Texas-San Antonio and Louisiana Tech next season, and Missouri State and Florida Atlantic the following season.
