When K-State matches up with Missouri State this Saturday night in the Little Apple, the coaching matchup will not be an unfamiliar one. The Wildcats’ Bill Snyder and the Bears’ Terry Allen were both assistants in the state of Iowa in the 1980′s, matched up for five years when Allen was at Kansas, and they last met when Allen was with the Bears in 2010. Snyder has won all six meetings, outscoring Allen 292-74. The closest matchup was when K-State beat Missouri State 48-24 in 2010.
This game is important for K-State as an experienced roster, along with a group of unproven newcomers will try to iron out the kinks before Miami, Florida comes to town. Allen says playing the Cats is important for the Bears also as they try to answer a number of question spots in their lineup.
K-State and Missouri State make their season debut this Saturday night at 6:10pm at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. Join us Saturday afternoon at 2:00pm on KMAN for the “new” Powercat Gameday as Wildcat legends Kevin Lockett and Dirk Ochs, will join Matt Walters, John Kurtz, and Corey Dean.
