K-State & Texas Set For Prime Time


The Big 12 Conference announced Monday morning that K-State and Texas will kick off at 7:00pm in Austin on Saturday night, September 21st. The game between the Cats and Longhorns will be televised nationally by ABC for the second straight season.

K-State extended their winning streak to five against Texas with a 42-24 victory last December that sealed up the 2012 Big 12 championship.

Both the Cats and Longhorns are 1-1, as the Longhorns are licking their wounds following a 40-21 rout at the hands of BYU. ┬áDefensive coordinator Manny Diaz was fired after the Cougars gashed Texas for 550 rushing yards. ┬áDiaz will be replaced by Greg Robinson, who was the Longhorns’ defensive coordinator in 2004. ┬áRobinson also was head coach at Syracuse from 2005-2009, and was the Chiefs’ DC from 2001-2003.

K-State will conlcude non-conference play this Saturday when they host UMass at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. Kickoff is 6:10pm, and Powercat Gameday starts at 2:00pm from the new Cat Town on NewsRadio 1350 KMAN.
