You've had a week to relax, although you've probably spent it worrying about how the Wildcats are going to perform against Big 12 competition. For good or ill, you're about to get an answer to your concerns, and we've got all the information you'll need to prepare for gametime.
The game: Kansas State (3-0, 0-0 B12, rv/rv) vists the Oklahoma State Cowboys (4-0, 1-0 B12, 20/19). The Cowboys lead the all-time series 37-24, largely due to their 20-8 advantage in Stillwater; things are much different in Manhattan. K-State's only win in Stillwater during the Big 12 era was in 1999.
Odds: Oklahoma State opened as a three point favorite, but that's since ballooned to 7.5 points. Strangely, the total has gone DOWN from 51 to 49.5; that means at open Oklahoma State was expected to win 27-24, but now they're predicted to win 29-21.
Kickoff: Saturday, October 3 at 3:00pm CT, Boone Pickens Stadium (60,000) in Stillwater OK.
Tickets: If you're hoping to make the trip and don't already have tickets, there are quite a few available on the secondary market. Prices range from $41-$150, ignoring the crazy person trying to sell upper corner seats for a grand. The average price is around $70. There are, at this writing, seven field-level seats behind the K-State sideline going for $77-125; there are a ton of mid-level seats on the Wildcat side going from between $55-90.
If you're attending, the K-State Alumni Association will host a pre-game at 11am at Brooklyn's, 701 S. Main Street in Stillwater. There's no fee and no reservations, and food and drinks are on you. Kirk and Noel Schulz will be in attendance, as well as several associate athletic directors.
Television: Fox Sports 1 with Justin Kutcher, Steve Hutchinson, and Bruce Feldman, the same crew that called the K-State/UTSA game.
Radio: K-State Sports Network, with Wyatt Thompson, Stan Weber, and Matt Walters; 810 AM in Kansas City, 1410 AM/1480 AM in Wichita, and of course 1350 AM/101.5 FM in Manhattan. If you're trapped in Oklahoma, the Cowboy Radio Network has you covered; Dave Hunziker, John Holcomb, and Robert Allen provide the call. They can be found on 96.1 FM/1340 AM in Oklahoma City and 1170 AM in Tulsa. The OSU feed will also be available on Sirius 119/XM 200.
