Football

Kansas State will take on #25 Iowa State in Ames tonight. Kickoff is scheduled for 6 PM, and the game will air on FS1. For all the details on the game, here’s the HOW TO WATCH post from AMS.

The holiday weekend has conspired to keep TB from kicking the tires on Iowa State (at least until the time of this writing), but there are predictions aplenty from other quarters.

Is this Bill Snyder’s last game as the head coach at Kansas State? Snyder was non-committal in his remarks to the press on Tuesday, but it is entirely possible he’ll be making his last stand in this game against Iowa State.

If so, then let’s send him off with a big win.

Go Cats! Go Wheat!!

Basketball

On the heels of its first in-season tournament win since 2011, the 12th-ranked men’s basketball team (5-0) is back in action in Manhattan today, hosting Lehigh (4-1). Tip off is set for 3:30 PM at Bramlage Coliseum.

The Wildcats have won 25 straight home games against non-conference opponents. Let’s hope that become 26 today.

The women’s basketball team did not fare well against #16 DePaul and lost 79-59. Playing their second game in the Cancun Challenge in Mexico, the Wildcats got off to a shaky start and only managed 16 points in the entire first half. Indeed, in the second quarter, Kansas State was held to just 2-of-11 shooting. Although the team recovered in the second half, and indeed outscored DePaul in the third and fourth stanzas, it was too little and too late, especially on the back of 18 turnovers for the Wildcats in the first half.

Kansas State did find some redemption via an 80-61 win over the Princeton Tigers this morning. That game concluded the Wildcats’ campaign at the Cancun Challenge.
