Kansas State has sold out its Sept. 1 season opener, the school announced. A full 50,000-capacity Bill Snyder Family Stadium crowd will watch as the Wildcats take on Missouri State, which marks the fourth-straight sellout in season openers for the school.
Four straight sellouts in season openers is a marked achievement. While schools like Oregon are struggling to sell all tickets available to openers against FCS teams, Kansas State has managed to do so against UMass (2009), UCLA (2010), and Eastern Kentucky (2011).
The Wildcats are coming off their first 10-win season eight years, as Bill Snyder led his squad to a 10-3 record under junior quarterback Collin Klein. Despite Klein returning, K-State was recently picked to finish eighth in the 10-team Big 12. The opener welcomes the Missouri State bears to Manhattan, Kan., a team that finished just 2-9 in the FCS conference Missouri Valley last year.
Kansas State has won its last four season openers.
