It’s game day, folks, and it’s another beautiful day for football. With the Wildcats fresh off a 35-12 victory over West Virginia and still riding high, the team has the chance to climb back to .500 against Iowa State this weekend. And with the Cyclones reeling and standing at just 1-6 on the year, K-State as healthy as it’s been all year, playing at home, and the Cyclones battling several injuries, the stars just seem perfectly aligned for that scenario to play out. So here’s all you need to know about today’s game:
Game Time: Kick-off is scheduled for 2:30 ET/3:30 CT. Last week’s game was slightly delayed when a student dressed as the Mountaineer’s mascot suffered seizures after being tackled during the pre-game skit. He was cleared from the hospital and appears to be okay, but K-State is reportedly reviewing this tradition. No word yet on whether a Cyclone will be subjected to the same fate this afternoon, but it’s not looking promising.
Weather: Seriously – it should be beautiful out there. I’ll be in Buffalo, NY to see the Kansas City Chiefs game (annual father-son trip that can’t be missed), but Manhattan promises a high of 61º with wind speeds of 5-10 mph and zero percent chance of rain. If you can’t make it to the game and plan on spending the afternoon watching on tv, I highly suggest you get outside in the morning and enjoy the weather before it realizes it’s November and cold sets in.
Where To Watch: Once again, the game can be viewed on Fox Sports 1 this week. It will also be broadcast throughout the region on local radio stations and can be streamed through the University’s KStateHD.tv website (for a fee).
What Will Happen: Well, the Wildcats will win and go 4-4 on the season, first off. For more in-depth coverage, you can visit Shane Summers’ key match-up of the game.
