According to KUathletics.com, Kansas and Missouri are reigniting the border war rivalry.
“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 rivalry will renewed on September 6, 2025 in Columbia, Missouri in the team’s first meeting since 2011. The next game between the Jayhawks and Tigers will take place in 2026 in Lawrence, Kansas. The third will happen in Columbia, Missouri, in 2031 and the series end the following season in Lawrence.
This is the fourth-longest rivalry in CFB history dating all the way back to 1891. The last time the Jayhawks and Tigers played, The Tigers won a 24-10 game at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. While the next match up is a ways away, this will definitely give Kansas fans something to look forward to.
