Good morning Wildcat fans, and welcome to another Saturday of winning as Kansas State goes for its sixth win of the season and bowl eligibility (man it feels nice being able to say that). The Wildcats have an afternoon kickoff, with whistles expected to blow at 2:30 pm. Here’s everything you need to know about the match up:
Game Time: Kickoff is slated for 3:30 Eastern/2:30 Central. Next week the Wildcats have another 11 am kickoff against Oklahoma – a situation which worked pretty well for K-State last week. Bill Snyder’s squad didn’t look tired at all, reeling off touchdowns on all five first half possessions en route to a 35-10 lead at then-#25 Texas Tech.
Television: Game will be available on FSN. You can also catch the action through the air on the K-State Radio Sports Network or on Sirius 119/XM 194. And, of course, for the best coverage around we’ll be updating the Twitter feed regularly and providing halftime and postgame analysis.
Weather: Halfway through November, it’s seems time for cold weather football to be here. Yet I’m not gonna complain if some global weirding means I don’t have to shovel snow to get to the store tomorrow. Actually, despite clouds and wind making for unfavorable morning tailgate conditions, the skies are scheduled to part in the afternoon with temperatures of up to 70º. Expect windy conditions, with gusts of 20 mph, but no chance of this morning’s precipitation reappearing.
Things To Keep An Eye On: If the wind doesn’t die down, this game will be decided on the ground. K-State has the dominant rushing attack, and it appears easier to run than throw on TCU anyway. Advantage K-State. For a complete list, here’s our index of things to watch in the game. Additionally, I suggest you check out Shane Summers’ key match up and our full rundown of conference games this Saturday. And, of course, watch the scoreboard as K-State marches toward (hopefully) a Holiday Bowl berth.
