Are you feeling a sense of dread? Foreboding? Misery? Sure you are. Well, we're here to add to your despair with all the information you need in order to partake of tomorrow's bloodbath. (Reminder: we are not the Spirit Squad.)
The game: Kansas State (3-4, 0-4 Big 12) hosts the Baylor Bears (7-0, 4-0 Big 12, 6/2/2). K-State leads the all-time series 7-5, but they've dropped three in a row to the dark lords from Waco. Thursday night is Fort Riley Day, which may mean the return of the camoflague Powercat
Odds: Baylor is a 17.5 point favorite, and the total is only 67.5, meaning Vegas has this game pegged for a 43-25 margin. Hey, that doesn't actually look too bad...
Kickoff: Thursday, November 5 at 6:30pm CT, Bill Snyder Family Stadium (50,000) in Manhattan, Kansas.
Tickets: Sold out, obviously. The secondary market is, well, soft. We may see a lot of patrons disguised as seats tonight. The median price is a mere $10. There are vast oceans of lower-level seats for as low as $4. Want to sit in the first row of section 4? $37. In other words, you have no excuse not to go to the game if you can get to the game.
Special note re: parking: Stadium lots will open at 1:30pm. K-State would like us to remind you that the VetMed lot on Denison will have limited availability prior to 5pm, while at the same time asking that you arrive early to ease evening traffic congestion. Plan accordingly. The equestrian lot north of the fire station on Denison will be available.
Television: FOX Sports 1, with Gus Johnson, Joel Klatt, and Molly McGrath.
Radio: K-State Sports Network, with Wyatt Thompson, Stan Weber, and Matt Walters; also available on Sirius/XM 84. In Central Texas you can catch the Baylor call with John Morris, J.J. Joe, and Ricky Thompson on KRZI 1660 in Waco, as well as KSKY 660 in Dallas, KNTH 1070 in Houston, KLGO 1490 in Austin, KSLR 630 in San Antonio, and outlets in several other smaller Texas cities.
