The first game is not happening for five years and the series won’t return as an annual event. But finding each other on four future football schedules is big news for Kansas, Missouri and college football for a few reasons.

One quick quibble: A Saturday midday announcement with dueling press releases? The thawing of the Border cold War merited at least a video call in this pandemic pause.

Maybe more splash would have been created if the Chiefs and Arrowhead Stadium were part of the series, as they were the last five times the teams met. But the games in 2025, 2026, 2031 and 2032 are set for Columbia and Lawrence.
