MANHATTAN, Kan. (Kansas State Sports Information) – K-State’s 2022 Big 12 volleyball schedule was announced Thursday by the league office, with the 16-match slate beginning Saturday, September 24 against in-state rival Kansas at Bramlage Coliseum.
The Big 12 will revert to its traditional home-and-home schedule for the 2022 campaign after playing two seasons of an adjusted schedule due to the coronavirus pandemic. Each of the last two volleyball seasons, teams played a two-match series over two days in one location.
K-State’s conference schedule gets underway with the Dillons Sunflower Showdown at 6:30 p.m., highlighting the eight-match home schedule. The Wildcats will host Iowa State (October 1), TCU (October 15), Baylor (October 22), Texas October 28, West Virginia (November 10), Oklahoma (November 16) and Texas Tech (November 23).
The Wildcats will play all their home matches in Bramlage Coliseum for the third and final year, as Morgan Family Arena is scheduled to be open for the 2023 fall season.
Season tickets for the 2022 season will go on sale Wednesday, July 6. The Cats’ non-conference, promotional and broadcast schedules will be announced at a later date.
K-State earned its 18th all-time NCAA Championship appearance in 2021 after a 15-13 record (6-10 Big 12). It marked the 13th postseason bid under head coach Suzie Fritz, who enters her 22nd season at the helm of the Wildcats.
