K-State’s regular season schedule for the 2014 football season will last from August to December, includes two Thursday night games and will include five Saturday’s without a game. The slate is highlighted by a match up with Auburn on Thursday, September 18th.
The Wildcats’ Big 12 home games will be against Texas Tech, Texas, Oklahoma State and Kansas, while K-State hits the road to play Iowa State, Oklahoma, TCU, West Virginia and Baylor. The game with Iowa State on September 6th will be just the second game of the season.
There are plenty of home games on the schedule early, with K-State leaving home just twice in the first two months of the season. K-State will then be on the road three times in the final month of the season.
Six bowl eligible teams from last season are on the schedule, including three teams that played in BCS bowl games.
There has been strong fan reaction against the Auburn game being moved to Thursday, but K-State Athletic Director John Currie told fans in his latest “Letter from the A.D.” that a chance to play in the national spotlight was a big reason for the change.
“Schools very similar to K-State, like Virginia Tech and Clemson, have dramatically enhanced their programs’ (and school) national brand position over the last 20 years by playing Thursday night games at home almost every year,” Currie said in the letter.
The regular season opens on August 30th when the Wildcats host Stephen F. Austin.
August 30th – STEPHEN F. AUSTIN
September 6th – at Iowa State
September 13th – BYE
September 18th – AUBURN
September 27th – UTEP
October 4th – TEXAS TECH
October 11th – BYE
October 18th – at Oklahoma
October 25th – TEXAS
November 1st – OKLAHOMA STATE

Marcus Foster scored 23 points and Thomas Gipson had 19, but the star of the show was Juwan Staten who had a career high 35 points as West Virginia avenged an earlier loss and knocked off Kansas State 81-71 Saturday at the WVU Coliseum in Morgantown.
The Wildcats trailed 39-31 at halftime and the deficit grew to 10 early in the second half before a rally cut it to one point in the final five minutes. However, the Mountaineers were able to put together a run and salt the game away.
Kansas State (15-7, 5-4) will next be in action on February 8 when they welcome Texas to Bramlage Coliseum. The Number 25 ranked Longhorns handed sixth-ranked Kansas their first Big 12 loss 81-69 on Saturday in Austin.

GoPowercat.com is reporting that K-State lured Dodge City Community College defensive tackle Terrell Clinkscales to switch his commitment from Nebraska.
The 6-foot-4 315 pound Clinkscales is a four-star prospect with 40 tackles, seven and a half for loss, and three and a half sacks for the Conquistadors this season. He committed to Nebraska on December 1st, but reportedly changed his mind and told the K-State coaches of his decision this past weekend.
Clinkscales also tweeted his decision late Sunday night:
@TerrellClink92 In life you have to do what’s best for you. I’m officially decommitting I will be attending Kstate next year
