Kansas State first fielded a football team in 1893, and aside from some good seasons in the 1920's and '30s, including a conference title in 1934, KState was historically one of the worst programs in college football. Bill Snyder's arrival in 1989 changed all that. Snyder's tenure would have the Wildcats win more games in 17 seasons than they'd won in 50 years. As of 2015, the Wildcats have played in 19 bowl games and win 6 Big 12 titles. Some of the talented players to play at Kansas State include Steve Grogan, Mark Simoneau, Martin Gramatica, and Michael Bishop.

2017 Kansas State Season Preview
The Kansas State Wildcats ended last season 6-7 and with an invitation to the Liberty Bowl against the Arkansas Razorbacks. The Wildcats were hit with injuries in 2015 that resulted in a disappointing season for head coach Bill Snyder. With the return of the Wildcats' top quarterbacks Jesse Ertz and Alex Delton, the offense should have a promising season. The Wildcats lost four offensive line starters but there is a strong team supporting the QB with returning running backs, Charles Jones, Dalvin Warmack and Justin Silmon. As the offense suffered from injuries last season so did the defense, but coming into 2016, star senior safety Dante Barnett and defensive back Kendall Adams return as a strong defense team for Kansas State. The 2016 season will be a chance for redemption from last season with healthy quarterbacks and returning veterans. Top games on the 2016 Kansas State Wildcats’ schedule are between Stanford, Oklahoma Sooners and Iowa State. Whether you are planning on cheering on the Wildcats at home games or supporting Kansas State on the road, TicketCity has some of the best deals for all 2016 Kansas State Wildcats’ tickets, including home and away games.

Bill Snyder Family Football Stadium parking information is covered in out Wildcats event guide.
Bill Snyder Family Football Stadium Experience
Known as the Sunflower Showdown (for obvious reasons), this game has happened every single year since 1911 – the third-longest uninterrupted series in college football history. K-State has proved to be the victor more often than not since the 90s, but the Wildcats still have some catching up to do to takeover the all-time series, as Kansas won 17 of the first 20 meetings between the two.
It’s “Farmageddon” when these two schools meet, and while Iow State has the all-time series advantage, it’s been the Bill Synder-led resurgence of Wildcat football that has K-State winning much more often these days. The 2012 contest between the two in Ames drew the biggest crowd in the history of Iowa State Cyclones football.
The rivalry between the Kansas State Wildcats and Texas Longhorns is one of the best in the Big 12. The Wildcats and Longhorns first met in 1913, but played only 4 times before the 1990’s. More so than maybe any other team in the Big 12, the Kansas State Wildcats have had the Longhorns number, winning 5 in a row against Texas from 2006-2012. Kansas State is known for cheering, “We own Texas,” and are currently one of only a small number of schools to have a winning record against the Longhorns.
Kansas State in the CFP Championship and Bowl Games
The Kansas State Wildcats play their home games in Manhattan. Manhattan, Kansas that is, and it certainly isn’t the most welcoming home for opponents. The Wildcats have been featured in more than 15 bowl games and have faired quite well once getting there. They can also add to an already imposing two Big 12 Conference Championships since 2003. Ticketcity offers tickets to all college football bowl games and the Big 12 Championship Game.
2015 Kansas State Football Preview
Kansas State has turned into a program that competes for conference championships year in and year out. The 2015 Kansas State Wildcats will be led by athletic quarterback Joe Hubener, who will have a pair of senior receivers in Kyle Klein and Kody Cook. Kansas State will have to find playmakers who are not named Tyler Lockett, as the ultra-talented receive moved on to the NFL. But that is what the Wildcats do best, find players that play their best in big moments. Kansas State will have a veteran secondary to help them slow down the aerial assaults of their Big 12 opponents, and come in as one of the most complete teams in the Big 12. Look for Kansas State to be near the top of the Big 12 standings in 2015, yet again.
2014 Kansas State Football Preview
The 2013 season was a year of transition for the Wildcats. But Kansas State, in typical Bill Synder fashion, came to play every week and were a threat to win every game of the season. The biggest loss of the offseason for Kansas State is safety Ty Zimmerman, who was one of the best defensive players in the Big 12 over the last 4 years. The return of quarterback Jake Waters, and big play threat Tyler Lockett have the Wildcats poised to be one of the most dangerous teams in the Big 12. The defense will look to senior defensive end Ryan Mueller to headline what will be a fantastic front 7. If we have learned anything over the last half decade of Bill Synder’s return to coaching, it’s not to count the Wildcats out. The two biggest games of the season will be October 18th at Oklahoma, and December 6th at Baylor. If KSU can pull off one, or both of those games, they should be in good shape to finish near the top of the Big 12.
2013 Kansas State Football Preview
Bill Snyder has quickly made Kansas State relevant again in the college football world since returning as the head coach of the Wildcats. Coming off back-to-back seasons of double digit victories and a berth in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, Kansas State is hopeful to keep the momentum going after losing key players on both offense and defense including dual-threat quarterback Collin Klein. However, leading rusher John Hubert returns along with the entire offensive line that only allowed 14 sacks in 2012. Chris Harper departs, but the rest of the receiving core will be back including Tyler Lockett, who also makes an impact as a kick returner.
The Wildcats are in a transition phase as they look for a new quarterback, but with Snyder at the helm, the drop off won’t be as significant. After a non-conference schedule the first three weeks of the season, the Wildcats will travel to Texas and Oklahoma State before Baylor, West Virginia, TCU, and Oklahoma come to Kansas State.
2011 Kansas State Football Preview
When Bill Snyder took the reins in Manhattan, it was a cry for help from the Wildcat faithful. Snyder, who coached the team from 1989-2005, had a track record for building a national contender in the same environment. So in 2010, his third year back, he created the most buzz KSU had seen in a while. Snyder had formed a team that could finish with a winning record and a bowl berth.
2011 presents Snyder with a challenge however. Their offensive workhorse, Daniel Thomas, is now playing in Miami on Sundays. The KSU system is one that currently values the backfield more than the quarterback because of the revised version of the option they run (and, hence, the Wildcat offense that’s occasionally run in the NFL). So while the QB situation is in flux, sophomore transfer Bryce Brown will be looking to replace Thomas in the system.
Ironically, Bryce’s brother and junior linebacker Arthur Brown is another transfer who is looking to become the focal point of the defense. Senior Emmanuel Lamur joins him to form the core of the group, and one that will have to be ready to support the porous defensive line. Luckily, their secondary consisting of sophomores Ty Zimmerman, Stephen Harrison and Terrance Sweeney and senior David Garrett are more than willing and stout enough to survive any onslaught the upfront group may encounter. It may have to be the strength of the team for a while, as Snyder helps the offense find its way.
2010 Kansas State Football Preview
Before Kansas State coach Bill Snyder was hired in in 1989, the team had made just one bowl appearance in it's 93 years of existence. However, under Snyder, the Wildcats have made 11 bowl games and have emerged as a perennial contender in the Big 12 North.
Although, Kansas State finished a disappointing 6-6 last year, the running game gave fans reason to be hopeful. Senior Daniel Thomas ran for 1,265 yards and 11 touchdowns, behind a line that returns four starters from a year ago. The quarterback position is still up for grabs, with senior Carson Coffman competing against sophomore Collin Klein for the starting job.
The Wildcats' biggest strength on defense in 2009 was its outstanding play from junior safeties Tysyn Hartman and Emmanuel Lamur. With both returning this year, the secondary should be solid but the rest of the defense is relatively inexperienced. Junior defensive end Brandon Harold had a solid freshman campaign, but missed much of last year due to injury.
Expectations in Manhattan have been higher since Snyder came out of retirement in 2008, and last year was a step in the right direction. The Wildcats certainly will not go backward, but it would be hard to imagine them winning more than eight games.
2009 Kansas State Football Preview
The big story of the 2009 Kansas State Wildcats football season will be the return of former Head Coach Bill Snyder. Snyder coached Kansas State for almost 20 years before retiring a few seasons ago. But now Coach Snyder is back on the sideline in Manhattan, where he'll have to get used to coaching in a stadium now named after him, Bill Snyder Family Stadium. This could be a great move for the Wildcats if Snyder can reclaim some of the success he had before retiring and get KState back playing in the Big 12 Championship Game.
2008 Kansas State Football Preview
The Kansas State University Wildcats football program has established itself as one of the top programs in the country in the last 20 years. A couple of tough seasons under new coach Ron Prince will have the Wildcats raring to go this coming year to re-establish themselves as contenders for the Big 12 North title and a bowl bid. Bill Snyder Family Football Stadium will be roaring with KState fans looking for their team to turn things around.
