Manhattan, KS (SportsNetwork.com) - Kansas State and Georgia will take part in a two-game, home-and-home series over the next two seasons.
"We're excited about the challenge of playing an opponent like Georgia the next two seasons," said KSU head coach Bruce Weber on Tuesday. "We really needed a quality home game against a high-major conference opponent for this coming season and we thought they would be a great lead-up game before the start of Big 12 play. They return a majority of their team from one that nearly made the NCAA Tournament, so we will have our work cut out against a quality opponent."
The Wildcats will host the Bulldogs at Bramlage Coliseum on New Year's Eve 2014, then Georgia will repay the favor by welcoming K-State on Dec. 22, 2015 at Stegeman Coliseum.
This year's matchup will be the first between the programs since the 1987 NCAA Tournament, an 82-79 overtime first-round victory by Kansas State in Salt Lake City.
Georgia head coach Mark Fox is a native of Garden City, KS, and served as an assistant with the Wildcats from 1994-2000.
