Warriors to play series with Jayhawks, Kansas officials say

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 08:08 a.m. HST, Jun 06, 2013

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.

NO! Anonymous is right and you are wrong. Didn't you get the memo? All UH men's teams are now RAINBOW WARRIORS. Get used to it, or get over it.

"Big Tuna" is in reference to Bill Parcels. Charlie Weis would more appropriately be called, "Big Loser".

Aloha Warrior Nation! Both programs need to improve in order to make this series interesting. However (To be honest), I'm excited about it. Right now both heralded programs bring some history to the table and even though both teams are rebuilding under new leadership, it'll be interesting to see where these two programs will be in 2016 and 2017. Let's Go to WAR-riors!
