Kansas State AD On Pinstripe Bowl: 'We Look Forward To Turning The Big Apple Purple'

The Kansas State Wildcats will head to New York for just the third time in their existence and for the first time in a bowl game to face the Syracuse Orange in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl. Kansas State athletic director John Currie called the opportunity a "once-in-a-lifetime" chance.

"We couldn't be more excited to showcase our football program, Kansas State University and our national alumni and fan base in the inaugural New Era Pinstripe Bowl, and I am pleased to accept the invitation on behalf of President Kirk Schulz, Coach Bill Snyder and our entire institution," said Currie. "The chance for our student-athletes, band members, cheerleaders and fans to experience New York City and compete in one of the most famous venues in all of sports is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. We look forward to turning the Big Apple purple."

7-5 Kansas State vs. 7-5 Syracuse. This should be a fun game for Kansas State. It all goes down on Dec. 30 at Yankee Stadium in the first New Era Pinstripe Bowl.
