Good afternoon K-State Nation!
I hope you were truly able to use Sunday as a day of rest after a very busy several days in MHK!
Let's start today's update by congratulating Coach Suzie Fritz and the K-State volleyball team, which on Saturday captured its third early season tournament title of the season - this time in Ann Arbor defeating host Michigan on its homecourt along with Eastern Michigan and Youngstown State. Having now won 11 straight matches, Coach Fritz's squad is 13-1 and on the cusp of a Top 25 ranking. We have a Wildcat Weekend coming up as the Cats host Baylor at 7 p.m., Saturday in Ahearn Field House to open Big 12 Conference play. Remember, you can get in for just $3 with your UTEP football ticket stub. I look forward to seeing a great K-State crowd in Ahearn Saturday night.
Thursday night's football game against 5th-ranked Auburn provides us a unique opportunity to showcase our program and university on ESPN's Thursday Night College Football platform. As we approach the game, which I believe to be one of the hottest tickets in K-State history, I want to provide some thoughts and details that will allow you a smoother trip to and from the stadium.
