Purple/White Game Set for April 24

MANHATTAN, Kan. - Kansas State Athletics Department officials have announced that the annual Purple/White spring football game at Bill Snyder Family Stadium will kick at 6:10 p.m. on April 24.

All tickets will be priced at $5 and may be purchased online here at www.k-statesports.com, in person at the K-State Athletics Ticket Office or via phone at 1-800-221-CATS. Tickets to the annual spring game will go on sale April 1.

K-State, which returns 38 lettermen and 12 total starters from last year's 6-6 squad, will open spring practice on March 31 and will conduct a total of 15 workouts, culminating with the April 24 Purple/White game.

The Wildcats finished 4-4 in Big 12 Conference play in 2009 and were one win shy of advancing to the Big 12 Championship game. K-State will be led in 2010 by running back and All-American candidate Daniel Thomas and safety Tysyn Hartman, an All-Big 12 performer on the field and an Academic All-District selection for his work in the classroom.
