Three months prior to September 18th’s Thursday night game featuring Kansas State and Auburn, the game has already sold out, becoming K-State’s first home sellout this season.
“K-State fans have stepped up again and are on the verge of another sold-out season at Bill Snyder Family Stadium,” said Athletics Director John Currie in a statement. “We are closing in on 20 consecutive sellouts and expect to do so before the season begins, and we appreciate our fans’ support in making Bill Snyder Family Stadium on gamedays the best environment in the Big 12.”
Bill Snyder Family Stadium reports a record 53,811 in attendance in 2000, and with a top-ranked Auburn coming to town, might that record be in jeopardy?
SEC fans aren’t used to seeing Thursday night games, and Auburn and K-State will do work in front of the entire country. The Wildcats finished 8-5 last season.
K-State’s offense is wide open, much like Auburn’s, and this could turn into a track meet-like bout featuring two tempo offenses with great new school and old school head coaches.
