K-State opens the 2008 season against North Texas on August 30, which will feature the induction of the second K-State Ring of Honor class and begin a season-long celebration of the 1998 K-State team, before hosting the Bobcats of Montana State on September 6.
After a nationally-televised road contest at Louisville on September 17, Kansas State wraps up its non-conference schedule with a home date with Louisiana-Lafayette in a 2:35 p.m. afternoon tilt.
