K-State to Play UTSA in Football

MANHATTAN, Kan. - Kansas State Director of Athletics John Currie announced Wednesday that the Wildcats have agreed to a contract with Texas-San Antonio for three football games, two of which will be played in Manhattan, for the 2014, 2015 and 2018 football seasons.

The games will be played on Saturday, September 27, 2014, at Bill Snyder Family Stadium, Saturday, September 12, 2015, at the Alamodome in San Antonio and on Saturday, September 15, 2018, again in Manhattan.

"Two of our primary goals in football scheduling are to play as many home games as possible and when we do have to go on the road, to travel to important K-State markets and provide exposure for our program and University," said Currie.  "San Antonio is a terrific travel destination for our fan base and to play in the Alamodome will be a great experience for our student-athletes and our fans." 

UTSA will play two years (2011-12) as an NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) Independent. It then will notify the NCAA in June 2012 of its intent to advance to the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) in 2014.

The Roadrunners will comply with FBS standards during the 2013 season, then will seek full FBS membership and bowl eligibility in 2014. The program also recently announced future series with Baylor, Arizona and Arizona State.
