The Iowa State–Kansas State football rivalry is an American college football rivalry between the Iowa State Cyclones and Kansas State Wildcats. The two Big 12 Conference rivals have played every year since 1917, making it the eighth-longest continuous series in college football.

History[edit]

The teams first met in 1917, when both universities were members of the erstwhile Big Eight Conference. The matchup continued as an annual conference game through the schools' shift into the Big 12 Conference. The series has been dominated by long winning streaks for both teams, with each team's longest winning streak at 10 games; Kansas State is 21–4 since 1989. Iowa State leads the series 49–45–4.[1]

Historically the game was not considered a major rivalry, but in light of changes in the Big 12 in the late 2000s the universities pushed to highlight it to generate revenue and interest for their football programs.[2] They scheduled two neutral-site games at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri in 2009 and 2010, which fans and the media dubbed "Farmageddon", a reference to the agricultural roots of these land-grant universities.[3][4] Kansas State swept both matches, which drew average crowds, and the game was brought back to the university campuses for the 2011 season.[2]
