For many FBS programs, their annual FCS opponent would usually be a cakewalk, but we've seen SDSU not only complete but beat FBS opponents and will get a chance to do so once again in 2024.

Here is the complete release from South Dakota State on the big-time matchup for their football program.

South Dakota State has secured another matchup against a Football Bowl Subdivision opponent, agreeing to terms with Oklahoma State for a game that will kick off the 2024 season.

The game is scheduled to be played on August 31, 2024, at Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater, Oklahoma. It will mark the first-ever matchup between the Jackrabbits and Cowboys.

"We are excited to face Oklahoma State in 2024," SDSU head coach John Stiegelmeier said. " Coach (Mike) Gundy has done an unbelievable job of maintaining excellence in the Cowboy football program. We will do everything we can to be ready to play our best."
