MANHATTAN, Kan. Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder announced the Wildcats’ 2009 football schedule Monday, which is highlighted by six home contests at Bill Snyder Family Stadium, a road trip to UCLA and an Arrowhead Stadium matchup with north division foe Iowa State.

K-State will face five teams that advanced to a bowl game in 2008, which includes a road trip to defending Big 12 Champion and BCS National Title Game runner-up Oklahoma on October 31.

The Wildcats kickoff their 2009 campaign on Saturday, Sept. 5, when Massachusetts visits Bill Snyder Family Stadium. Following consecutive road trips to Louisiana (Sept. 12) and UCLA (Sept. 19), the Wildcats return home to wrap up non-conference play with Tennessee Tech on Sept. 26.

For the 11th time in the history of the Big 12, Kansas State will open conference play on the road as the Wildcats travel to Kansas City, Mo., to face Iowa State at Arrowhead Stadium. K-State will serve as the visiting team for the 2009 matchup.

Following a road trip to Texas Tech on October 10, Kansas State will return home for consecutive Big 12 contests with Texas A&M and Colorado on October 17 and October 24.

Following the trek to Norman, Okla., on October 31, The Wildcats will host North rivals Kansas (Nov. 7) and Missouri (Nov. 14) on consecutive weekends. Kansas State then concludes its 2009 schedule on November 21 at Nebraska.
