The Kansas State Athletics Department announced Tuesday that the Wildcats will host Montana State on September 6 in a non-conference football game, finalizing the 2008 football schedule.

The game against the Bobcats replaces the Fresno State game that was originally set for that date. Kickoff times for non-televised home games at Bill Snyder Family Stadium will be announced at a later date.

The Wildcats will open the 2008 season with two home games, beginning with North Texas on August 30, before traveling to Louisville on September 17 for a 7 p.m. nationally-televised game with the Cardinals. After hosting Louisiana-Lafayette on September 27, the Wildcats dive into conference play the following week as Texas Tech visits Manhattan in a rematch of the first-ever Big 12 Conference football game back in 1996.

Four of the next five conference games will be on the road for the Wildcats as K-State visits Texas A&M on October 11 and Colorado the following week on October 18.

Oklahoma then heads to Bill Snyder Family Stadium on October 25, while road tests at Kansas (November 1) and Missouri (November 8) open the month of November. K-State will then close the regular season with two home games as Nebraska visits Manhattan on November 15 before Iowa State makes the trip south on November 22.
