MANHATTAN, Kan. – Highlighted by a September 8 home game with SEC opponent Mississippi State, K-State’s 2018 football schedule is now complete with the Wildcats hosting seven games at Bill Snyder Family Stadium beginning September 1.
The Wildcats will open the season with three-straight home games before hitting the road for Big 12 play. The 2018 season will see the Cats host four Big 12 opponents at Bill Snyder Family Stadium in Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas Tech and KU.
“I have heard from many of our fans about their desire to make plans as early as possible for future football games, and we are pleased to announce our full 2018 schedule which includes seven games at Bill Snyder Family Stadium – four Big 12 matchups and three straight non-conference games to open the season,” Athletics Director Gene Taylor said. “I have been so impressed by our gameday atmosphere and fan support this year, and I know the K-State Nation will be in full force not only the rest of this current season but also in 2018. We have some of the best fans in the country, and I know they look forward to an exciting home schedule, which features Mississippi State from the SEC and Big 12 opponents Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas Tech and Kansas.”
Following the 10th-annual K-State Family Reunion against South Dakota on September 1, the Cats will host the Bulldogs on September 8 for the first time in program history before wrapping up non-conference play on September 15 against UTSA.
