LAWRENCE | The Kansas football team announced its 2010 schedule on Wednesday with a home game against ACC opponent Georgia Tech highlighting what looks to be a challenging nonconference slate.
The Jayhawks will play the Yellow Jackets at Memorial Stadium in 2010 before making the return trip to Atlanta in 2011. KU will also travel to Conference-USA’s Southern Mississippi in 2010, the back end of another home-and-home that begins this season with a game in Lawrence. Division I-AA opponent North Dakota State and New Mexico State will round out the nonconference portion of the schedule.
While KU appears to have toughened its schedule outside of the Big 12 in 2010, it will begin a two-year stint replacing South powers Texas, Oklahoma and Texas Tech with Baylor, Texas A&M and Oklahoma State.
The 2010 schedule in full:
North Dakota State
at Southern Mississippi
New Mexico State
at Iowa State
Missouri (at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City).
