Stripe Out Announced for South Dakota Game

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- K-State Athletics is asking fans to help stripe out Bill Snyder Family Stadium for the season opener and K-State Family Reunion against South Dakota as the department honors Coach Snyder for his 2015 College Football Hall of Fame selection. 

Fans are asked to wear either purple or white depending on their ticket location in Bill Snyder Family Stadium.  Fans can view the stadium map showing the shirt color for their section.  

"Many fans have reached out over the last several years asking to stripe out the football stadium for a game, and we thought doing so September 5 will be a great visual way to celebrate the start of the season and Coach Snyder's selection into the College Football Hall of Fame," said Associate AD for Ticketing and Fan Strategies Scott Garrett. "With another sellout crowd expected for the game, we are excited for this opportunity to showcase the passion of the K-State Family to the entire nation."
