Manhattan, KS, United States (4E Sports) – Athletic directors Scott Stricklin of Mississippi State and John Currie of Kansas State used the social networking site Twitter to reach a home-and-home football series agreement.
It is stipulated in the agreement that there would be two games between the Bulldogs and the Wildcats.
According to ESPN, the first game will take place on 2018 in Manhattan, Kansas and the second game on the following year in Starkville, Mississippi.
The communication began after Stricklin challenged Currie and three other athletic directors to participate in charity by playing a little football.
Before this, Stricklin and Currie already discussed a possibility of a possible series in the past.
After Currie called Stricklin out, the Mississippi State director grabbed the opportunity to set a series which may take place in 2016 and 2017.
In Currie’s response via tweeter he said, “@stricklinMSU @HailStateFB Already got some stuff working then – how about ’18 MHK, ’19 Starkvegas? #KState #Family.”
Stricklin responded via Twitter and agreed to the proposed football series.
There is no official contract for the series as of the moment, but Stricklin believes this will not be a hindrance towards the pursuance of the agreement.
