Spring Showcase shifts football flavor toward more interactive components

K-State fans, ya ready for a lil’ football?

By April 13, it will have been almost 150 days since the Wildcats have taken the field here in Manhattan. My, how things have changed!


Increased visibility spring workouts started March 6, and Kansas State football fans get closer glances as the last of the Wildcats’ 15 practices conclude with a Spring Showcase interactive practice (April 13, 1 p.m.) to include 30-minute scrimmage. Coach Chris Klieman in his initial season at Manhattan has lifted the veil on K-State’s inner workings, and fans have delighted in multiple social media offerings. Now, the Wildcats get down to business on the field. K-State football

We’re not as concerned about position battles and depth charts as with assurances that fans know where to sink their teeth into the depths of savory eats and get to enjoy everything that Manhattan offerings present in dining, attractions and places to stay. How about things to do? There’s a grand opening for Midwest Dream Car Collection before or after you take in the new-look Cats at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. Visit Manhattan calendar


Five months and counting
How’s this for a midpoint?: Another 150 days await for the Wildcats to open the 2019 season Aug. 31 against Nicholls, just the fourth season-opener in 30 years without Bill Snyder on the sideline. K-State plays two home non-conference games (opener plus Sept. 7, Bowling Green) before playing host to five Big 12 Conference games.

Those dates begin on Oct. 5 against Baylor, and a busy October follows with two more home games (Oct. 19, TCU and Oct. 26, Oklahoma, homecoming). That leaves two November home dates reserved for West Virginia (Nov. 16) and Iowa State (Nov. 30).

K-State has drawn nearly 105 percent of stadium capacity during 2013-17, with 52,457 five-year average attendance. Keep packing the Bill and stop in at K-State Sports for on-the-field and concourse details about the showcase. Go Cats and Win the Dang Day!
