Kansas Jayhawks Football

For the first time since 1985, the University of Hawaii and Kansas will meet on the gridiron.

KU announced Wednesday that the Rainbow Warriors and Jayhawks have agreed to a  home-and-home series, starting in 2016 in Lawrence, Kansas on September 24th.

The Jayhawks will then travel to Honolulu for a return game at Aloha Stadium on Sept. 2, 2017.

“We are very excited to announce this home-and-home series with Hawaii,” said Kansas head coach Charlie Weis”We recognize Hawaii and the Islands as a fertile recruiting territory. Both our current players and prospects are excited that these two games are official.”

Kansas leads the all-time series with Hawaii, 1-0. KU defeated the Warriors, 33-27, on Aug. 31, 1985 in Honolulu. It marks the Jayhawks’ first trip to the Islands since defeating UCLA, 51-30, in the 1995 Aloha Bowl.
