Student Ticket Specials Announced for KU, MU

MANHATTAN, Kan. - K-State football coach Bill Snyder has often related with pride the story of USC's Pete Carroll calling Bill Snyder Family Stadium the loudest stadium he had coached in when the Trojans were defeated by the Wildcats in 2002. 

Seven years later, with Snyder back on the sidelines and the Wildcats in the thick of the Big 12 Conference North Division race, that same intensity and environment is being rebuilt. With two home games remaining the K-State Athletics Department is encouraging students to fill Bill Snyder Family Stadium as the Wildcats take on Kansas November 7 in the Sunflower Showdown and close out the home campaign with Senior Day against Missouri on November 14.

In an effort to create the best game-day environment possible for these important Big 12 matchups, athletics officials, working closely with the Student Governing Association, announced Tuesday that K-State students can purchase a special $89 ticket package for the two games, a savings of $21 if purchased separately. The general admission seats are located in Section 28 of Bill Snyder Family Stadium, and a total of 500 of these special tickets will go on sale at 9 a.m., Wednesday.

"SGA is pleased to announce that the athletics department has decided to offer this special ticket option for our students," K-State Student Body President Dalton Henry said. "While we fully appreciate those students who have purchased season tickets this football season, we feel that this is a great opportunity for those who have not yet been to a game this year to attend and help us pack the student section for our two biggest home games of the season."

To purchase the special $89 package, students should go online to or call the Athletics Ticket Office at Bramlage Coliseum at (785) 532-7606.

"I know Coach Snyder and our football team appreciate very much the passion of our student body and the effect it can have on the atmosphere of the stadium," said Athletics Director John Currie. "We need to have our student sections packed with purple for the KU and Missouri games. Our student support is vital to our success as we strive to have the best game-day environment in the Big 12, and we encourage those students who currently do not have football tickets to take advantage of this opportunity and help fill Bill Snyder Family Stadium."
