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.
