The LSU Tigers and Kansas State Wildcats have a long, storied history on the gridiron. The two teams first met in 1896, with LSU coming out on top 12-0. Since then, the two squads have met a total of 47 times, with LSU holding a 29-18-0 advantage in the all-time series.
The two programs have played some memorable games over the years, including a 21-17 Kansas State victory in the 1998 Big XII Championship game. That game was also notable for being the last game coached by legendary Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder before he retired from coaching (he would come out of retirement in 2009 and is still coaching the Wildcats today).
more recently, in 2012, the two teams met in Baton Rouge for a regular season matchup. LSU won that game 24-19, but Kansas State would get revenge later that season by upsetting LSU in the Cotton Bowl by a score of 24-19.
The most recent meeting between these two teams came in 2018, when LSU defeated Kansas State 45-13 in Manhattan. That game was notable for being former LSU head coach Les Miles’ final game as head coach of the Tigers (he would be fired the following week).
Looking ahead to 2020, it will be interesting to see if these two programs can add another chapter to their long history together.
