Kansas State University, established in 1863, is found in Manhattan, just west of Topeka – cities situated in the eastern region of Kansas. The oldest public university in Kansas, K-State features a wide range of undergraduate and graduate degrees, along with 14 varsity level athletic teams.
The K-State Wildcats football team has seen national success, culminating in a number one overall ranking in 1998, leading to a slew of new fans in cities like Emporia, and McPherson. Their first season was 1896, and they play all home games at Bill Snyder Family Stadium, while competing within the Big 12 Conference.
The K-State Wildcats compete in the annual Sunflower Showdown against in-state rival Kansas Jayhawks, with the winner taking home the Governor’s Cup.
The K-State men’s basketball program has seen its share of recent success, earing a #2 seed in the 2010 NCAA Tournament. Playing their first season in 1902, the Wildcats have a rich history, with over 25 NCAA Tournament appearances. Visitors from nearby Junction City make the drive into Manhattan to visit the Bramlage Coliseum, home court of the K-State men’s and women’s basketball teams.
During the spring, head to Frank Myers Field at Tointon Family Stadium, home to the K-State Wildcats baseball team. Join nearly 3,000 Wildcats fans as they root for home runs, strikeouts, and double plays.
