(12) Kansas State
(7-2, 5-1 Big 12)
(6-4, 4-3 Big 12)
Last time on Wildcat Football: OUCH. We'll obviously be hoping that in tonight's episode our heroes recover from the previous setback and advance the plot. After all, stagnation is a terrible thing. On the one hand, last time K-State visited Morgantown it was a tour de force. On the other... it's Morgantown. On Thursday.
The game: Kansas State (7-2, 5-1, 12/11/12) visits the West Virginia Mountaineers (6-4, 4-3). K-State leads the series 3-1, and has won both meetings since West Virginia joined the Big 12. West Virginia has not beaten K-State in 84 years; that lone win was a 23-7 decision in Morgantown way back in 1930. All time, K-State has outscored the Mountaineers by an average score of 29-12; K-State's wins have all been by at least 19 points. Dominance! (And small sample sizes!)
Odds: The game opened as a pick 'em. The Mountaineers are now 2.5 point favorites. Sure, okay.
Kickoff: Thursday, November 20 at 6:00pm CT, Milan Puskar Stadium (60,000) in Morgantown, West Virginia.
Tickets: Via West Virginia's ticket office, there are still quite a few seats available for $55, including a massive swath of seats in sections 98 and 99 (northwest end zone) and quite a few seats in the upper deck on the north, both sides. On the secondary market, you can find tons of lower-level seats -- in the end zone for as low as $9, on the K-State sideline for as low as $11. The average price is around $19, and there are seats as close as the second row, on the K-State sideline, as low as $25. What we're saying here is if you can get to Morgantown tonight, you can get good seats cheap.
Television: National broadcast on FOX Sports 1 with Tim Brando, Joel Klatt, and Jenny Taft.
Radio: K-State Sports Network, with Wyatt Thompson, Stan Weber, and Matt Walters; either K-State's or WVU's feed will be available on Sirius/XM 91. If you're in West Virginia you can catch the game on West Virginia's network with Tony Caridi, Dwight Wallace, and Jed Drenning.
Pregame activities: Tailgating at Milan Puskar is always a winner. However, the K-State Alumni Association is hosting a free event at 3:00pm ET at Fat Daddy's Bar and Grill in Morgantown, so you may feel inclined to drop by.
Other options: Bring on the Cats hosts Kansas City-area watch parties in partnership with The Granfalloon, located at 608 Ward Parkway in the Country Club Plaza. If you can travel and attend the game, attend the game, but if not, be sure to come join us and enjoy the game, good eats, drinks, and the company of your fellow Wildcat faithful.
