At roughly 10:00 A.M Friday, Kansas State Athletic director John Currie briefly mentioned in a YouTube video that he'd like Mississippi State to come play football at Bill Snyder Family Stadium in Manhattan, Kansas in the future.

Within three hours, the two universities made a deal.

The Clarion-Ledger reported that MSU and KSU have agreed to a home-and-home series for the 2018 and 2019 football seasons with the Bulldogs traveling West to Manhattan in the '18 season.

The video was posted because Mississippi State Athletic Director
Scott Stricklin had challenged Currie to take part in the "Chillin' 4 Charity" campaign, in which athletic directors challenge each other to donate money to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund.

At the end of the video, Currie made the invitation, and within the next three hours, a deal was made.
