Kansas State football will kick off its season against South Dakota at 7:10 p.m. ET on Sept. 1.
The Wildcats and Coyotes’ nonconference clash will be available on ESPN3, the school announced in a release.
Kansas State’s opener against FCS Missouri Valley Conference member South Dakota will be the teams’ first meeting since 2015 and fifth overall.
Kansas State shut out South Dakota 34-0 in its 2015 season opener. It was the first meeting between the schools in 33 years.
The Wildcats’ home opener might not be the most attractive opening-weekend matchup. But the program will follow up the contest with a marquee nonconference contest against Mississippi State on Sept. 8.
Coach Bill Snyder’s group will face the Bulldogs of the SEC at noon ET on ESPN.
Kansas State’s Week 3 clash with Texas-San Antonio will air on Fox Sports Net at 4 p.m. ET on Sept. 15.
