Tomorrow afternoon during K-State football's final home game of 2014, K-State Athletics will celebrate the groundbreaking of the Vanier Football Complex. Set to take place during halftime of the Wildcats' matchup against Kansas, the groundbreaking celebration will mark the first step of a dramatic change of scenery for not only K-State football but for K-State Athletics as a whole. 

Happy Thanksgiving, K-Staters!

Letter from A.D. John Currie - November 19

Good morning K-State Nation,

I trust everyone is staying warm as colder temperatures have taken over much of the country. But, things are heating up here at K-State both on the playing field and in the classroom as the fall semester is nearing completion. Let's get right to the updates this week starting with our 2015 football schedule and a look at this weekend's NCAA Cross Country Championships.

Laura Galvan Selected to NCAA Cross Country Championships
A big congratulations is in order for senior Laura Galvan and new head cross country coach Ryun Godfrey as Laura recently earned an at-large selection to this year's NCAA Cross Country Championships which will be held Saturday in Indiana. She earned the at-large bid by being the fifth-place non-championship team individual in the Midwest Regional last weekend and finishing higher than any other fifth place finisher across the regional championship competition. Congrats to Laura and we wish her the best this weekend.

2015 Football Schedule to be Announced Later Today
Later this afternoon, the Big 12 Conference will release the full conference schedule for the 2015 football season, and we will follow the Big 12 release with our own complete schedule. Once again we are excited to have seven home games in the friendly confines of Bill Snyder Family Stadium including five Big 12 games in MHK! I also want to share the news with you first that several weeks ago the Big 12 staff asked K-State to host another special Thursday night primetime game in early November 2015 to enable the conference to fulfill its contractual obligation with our television partners. Commissioner Bowlsby has assured President Schulz and me that we will not be asked to host a Thursday night match-up in 2016 and 2017 since we will have hosted such games in consecutive seasons. As we have discussed over the last several years a Thursday game does provide unparalleled national exposure and excitement, but we do know that it creates a challenge for some of our fans. The environment and atmosphere at the Auburn game earlier this season was absolutely terrific - one of the best I have ever witnessed in person - and I know our fans will do their part in making the 2015 season even more special as we look to continue our current home sellout streak which will reach 20 games next weekend against KU! Stay tuned to k-statesports.com later today for our full release regarding the 2015 schedule.
