Good Afternoon K-State Nation,
The "Muscular Midwest" is flexing, and it has been a pretty incredible seven days for sports fans in Kansas!
the 'Cats it started last Wednesday with our No. 22 volleyball team
sweeping Oklahoma and then defeating West Virginia in Morgantown on
Saturday as Coach Fritz's squad improved to 19-3 overall and 6-2 in Big
12 play. Saturday of course also included the 23-0 football shutout of
the Longhorns in front of the 10th-largest crowd in Bill Snyder Family
Sunday featured a thrilling and memorable
milestone for K-State golf as Robert Streb ('09) celebrated his first
PGA Tour win with a gutsy come-from-behind run and dramatic playoff
birdie to cap a huge final round on Sunday at The McGladrey Classic in
Georgia. Robert always shows his K-State pride by wearing purple on
Sunday. With this win he earns a coveted two-year PGA exemption and an
invitation to the 2015 Masters. We are so proud of Robert and look
forward to welcoming him and his wife, Maggie, back to Manhattan this
weekend for our golf reunion, and we know you will enjoy congratulating
him during Saturday's football game. Click here for a video feature on

last night, the College Football Playoff (CFP) Committee recognized
K-State's performance and tough schedule by including the 'Cats in its
historic first top 10 rankings. There is a lot more football to be
played of course and there is no game more important than the next one.
The national spotlight swings back to Manhattan Saturday for our ABC
televised game against Oklahoma State which will kick off at 7 p.m.
Let's be in the stands early again to show the nation our purple passion
