NCAA Football: Iowa State at Kansas State

Kansas State and Iowa State fans, start saving up your money in your airline miles because the 2025 season is kicking off overseas.

On Wednesday, the schools announced that Farmageddon will indeed be played in 2025, and for the first time ever, K-State and ISU will face off on foreign soil.

The game will be the first-ever Big 12 matchup in Ireland and just the 10th college football game ever played in the country.

 

“We couldn’t be more excited to be chosen to play in the Aer Lingus College Football Classic,” K-State head coach Chris Klieman said. “Our players and staff are excited to expose our program to a global audience, and the cultural experience will also be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for all of Wildcat Nation. We appreciate our administration and the Aer Lingus Classic team for making this tremendous experience possible.”

โ€œThis is a tremendous opportunity for the Big 12 Conference to play one of its classic rivalries on a global stage while showcasing our University and its football program,โ€ said ISU head coach Matt Campbell. โ€œWe are honored that Aer Lingus selected the Cyclones to participate in this prestigious game, which will afford a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our student-athletes to experience international travel while also helping to grow the game of college football outside of the United States.โ€

The Wildcats and Cyclones have met a total of 107 times consecutively, making the series between Kansas State and Iowa State one of the most historical rivalries in college football.

As of 2023, the Cyclones hold the all-time series advantage, 53-50-4, after winning three of the last four meetings.

The two teams will face off in Ames on November 30, 2024.
