Kansas State vs No. 25 Iowa State: Open Game Thread

It’s the regular season finale for the Wildcats, and they will attempt to make sure it’s not the final game of the 2018 season.

This is it, the final regular season game of the 2018 season for your Kansas State Wildcats.

And it’s time for FARMAGEDDON.

There’s a lot at stake tonight for the Wildcats. At 5-6, K-State needs a win to secure bowl eligibilty. The Cats also hold an impressive 10-game over the Iowa State Cyclones, some of which have come in the most ridiculous fashion. And win or lose, this may well be the final regular season game for Hall of Fame head coach Bill Snyder.

For the Cyclones, the only things they are looking for are bowl positioning as well as snapping their losing streak to the Wildcats; a losing streak that Iowa State fans are particularly bitter about because of the ridiculous nature of the streak. A loss last week at Texas dropped the Cyclones out of any possible chance at the Big 12 title game, but Iowa State could still end the season with two wins and a decent bowl berth; which would make the first time that the Clones have won 8+ games in back-to-back seasons since Earle Bruce was roaming the sidelines in Ames.

Whatever the outcome, it’s FARMAGEDDON. Expect the ridiculous.

Tonight’s contest, set for a 6:000pm CDT kickoff, can be seen nationally on FS1 with Kevin Fitzgerald (play-by-play) and Eric Wood (analyst) on the call. You should also be able to stream the game at or on the Fox Sports app.

If you can’t get to a TV, or you don’t get ESPNU, the game can be heard across the 39-station K-State Sports Network with Wyatt Thompson (play-by-play), former K-State quarterback Stan Weber (analyst), and Matt Walters (sidelines) calling the action. The game will also be on Sirius Channel 108, XM Channel 384, and available on the TuneIn app. Live stats are available at, and Twitter updates (@KStateFB) will also be a part of the coverage from K-State Athletics.

Go Cats!
