The holiday season means a trip to the holiday bowl for K-State fans.

This will be the Cats third trip to San Diego for the holiday bowl. It also makes their tenth consecutive bowl trip.

Randy Rathbun is a die-hard K-State fan that can't wait to watch his wildcats in the holiday bowl in sunny San Diego.

Rathbun booked his holiday bowl trip through the alumni center right after the bowl announcements were made.

Great weather or not, Rathbun says K-State fans go to bowl games, and according to the Alumni Association, there's still plenty of room for all those Wildcat fans.

Come the end of December the airport may or may not be filled with a lot of purple people because based on availability there's not a lot seats, or at least cheap seats going out to San Diego.

One travel agency said the lowest airfare right now to San Diego is between $600 - $700.
