The Wildcats kick off an important non-con weekend in Nebraska tonight, as the Cats take on Nebraska-Omaha tonight at 7 p.m. as part of the Omaha Challenge held at Baxter Arena in Omaha, NE. Omaha is 3-7 so far on the season, and K-State holds the all-time record at 9-6.

The Cats' match with the host Mavericks will be streamed live on OMavs.com while all three K-State matches this weekend can be heard on KMAN 1350 AM, 93.3 FM or k-statesports.com.
