The University of Kansas and Hawaii will play a home-and-home football series beginning in 2016, the Jayhawks announced.
UH will go to Lawrence, Kan. for a Sept. 24, 2016 game and the Jayhawks will come to Aloha Stadium Sept. 2, 2017, the KU announcement said.
The schools have met once in football, a 33-27 Jayhawk victory in 1985.
"We are very excited to announce this home-and-home series with Hawaii," said Kansas head coach Charlie Weis in a statement. "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."
UH officials declined comment pending a review of the contracts.
