MANHATTAN, Kan. – Kansas State fans will have numerous opportunities to preview the 2010 Wildcats prior to the September 4 football opener as three television networks across the state and region will air the Wildcats’ preseason kickoff special beginning Sunday.

The 2010 Kansas State Football Preseason Special, produced by K-State, will air three times on FSN and will also be broadcast on Cox 22 and Metro Sports.

The one-hour show will air on Fox Sports Net at 6 p.m. on Sunday, August 29, and will then be replayed at 1 p.m. and 11 p.m. on Tuesday, August 31, and 4 p.m. on Thursday, September 2.
