MANHATTAN, Kan. –
Kansas State’s 2011 Big 12 football matchup with Iowa State, originally scheduled for Saturday, November 26, has been moved to Saturday, December 3, to facilitate television coverage, the Big 12 Conference has announced.

Game time and broadcast information for the 2011 home finale at Bill Snyder Family Stadium will be announced as early as June 1.

“Moving the Iowa State game to the first weekend in December presents us with several opportunities,” said Athletics Director John Currie. “Not only will this date enhance our television exposure for Big 12 football, but it also affords our team with an additional bye week during the regular season.”

The contest will also be advantageous to K-State fans and students as K-State continues to provide the best fan experience in the Big 12.

“Shifting the contest away from Thanksgiving weekend will allow more fans and students the opportunity to attend the ballgame, while being able to finalize gameday details in advance is beneficial as our fans begin to make plans to be in Manhattan,” Currie added.

The last three meetings in the series, which dates back to 1917, have been televised by Fox Sports with K-State winning all three matchups, including the last two in dramatic fashion.

K-State will play seven home games in 2011, including a record five Big 12 Conference matchups at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. The Wildcats open the season on September 3 against Eastern Kentucky for the third annual K-State Family Reunion.

Season tickets are currently on sale for as little as $21 per game. Visit k-statesports.com for more details including all ticket prices and options for an exciting seven-game home slate.
