On the one hand, there’s cause for pessimism. The Wildcats are winless in the conference schedule, and this weekend’s opponent absolutely humiliated them last year.
On the other, K-State showed signs in each of the last two games that they really are a decent team, and they’re playing a bunch of Busch Light-pounding hayseeds.
The (rv/—) Kansas State Wildcats (3-2, 0-2 Big 12) host the (—/rv) Iowa State Cyclones (3-2, 1-1).
K-State has won 11 of the last 13 and 25 of the last 31 meetings between the two schools, and Iowa State hasn’t won in Manhattan since 2004, which has been their only win in Manhattan since 1988. No other series stats really matter, because nobody cares about what happened before you were born.
Saturday, October 16, 6:30pm CT at Bill Snyder Family Stadium (50,000) in Manhattan, Kansas.
There are very few seats available through the ticket office, and they’re only singles going for $105 on the east sideline and $200 on the west club level.
Fans coming to the game should be aware of a construction tangle. Kimball Road is being worked on between the stadium and Seth Child. Incoming traffic will be diverted to Claflin Road.
Iowa State opened as 4-point favorites, but it’s opened up to 6.5. The total is set at 51. That implies a 29-22 win for the Cyclones. Odds provided by DraftKings.
The game will air on ESPN2 with Clay Matvick and Rocky Boiman calling the action with Tiffany Blackmon on the sidelines.
As always, Wyatt Thompson, Stan Weber, and Matt Walters will be on hand on the K-State Sports Network as well as via satellite on Sirius 132/XM 200/SXM App 954.
