MANHATTAN, Kan. – The Big 12 Conference and ABC Sports announced Monday that Kansas State’s football game against Texas at Darrel K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 29, has been selected for over-the-air distribution by the network. Kickoff has been slated for 2:30 p.m. CT.
Kansas State’s appearance on ABC on Sept. 29 will mark the second time this season that the Wildcats have been on television and first as part of the Big 12’s weekly television package. K-State opened the season at Auburn on ESPN.
The broadcast will mark the second straight season that the Wildcats and Longhorns will battle on ABC as K-State knocked off No. 4 Texas in Manhattan during the network’s primetime telecast last season. It also is the third straight game in the series to air on the network as the 2003 contest in Austin was also aired on ABC.
The last time that the Wildcats played in the 2:30 p.m. ABC slot was back in 2003 when K-State beat Nebraska, 38-9, in Lincoln. With its appearance on ABC vs. Texas, Kansas State has now had at least one game broadcast by the network for 14 consecutive seasons.
