K-State Sells Out Texas Bowl Tickets

MANHATTAN, Kan. Kansas State announced Wednesday a sellout of its allotment of tickets to the Texas Bowl and then some.

Robin Fosha, director of ticket operations, said K-State distributed 10,800 tickets for the December 28 game featuring the Wildcats versus No. 16 Rutgers at Houston’s Reliant Stadium.  That total was approximately 300 more tickets than the original allocation received by K-State.

Fosha said in addition to the tickets sold through K-State’s ticket office many Wildcat fans have purchased tickets through the Texas Bowl and other outlets in the Houston area. Fans interested in attending the game may still purchase tickets directly through the Texas Bowl by calling 1-866-GO-TEXANS or online through TicketMaster at www.ticketmaster.com.

K-State officials are anticipating another large purple following of the Wildcats during the post-season. The Wildcats have participated three times in bowl games played in the state of Texas. Each time, estimated attendance of Wildcat fans has been at least 35,000.

The Athletics Department and the K-State Alumni Association will jointly sponsor a Texas Bowl Pep Rally on Wednesday, December 27, at Reliant Arena at Reliant Park (on the grounds of Reliant Stadium). Doors will open at 3:30 p.m., for the event, which is free.  For additional details and a map of the area, please visit the Alumni Association web site at www.k-state.com.
