Mississippi State’s football team won’t be the only Bulldog team taking on Kansas State this year.
The MSU men’s basketball team will also square off with the Wildcats at the 2019 Never Forget Tribute Classic on Dec. 14 in Newark, New Jersey.
"Kansas State won the Big 12 last year, and Bruce Weber is one of the best coaches in the country,” said MSU coach Ben Howland. “It will be a big challenge for our team to play a very good and a well-coached team in Kansas State."
The Bulldogs are 0-3 all-time against Kansas State last losing a 78-67 decision in the opening round of the 1994 National Invitation Tournament in Manhattan, Kansas.
It marks the second straight year for Mississippi State to participate in the Never Forget Tribute Classic. The Bulldogs defeated Clemson 82-71 at the event last season.
