MANHATTAN, Kan. – Fresh off the football program’s first national ranking in four seasons, K-State officials announced Sunday that the Athletics Ticket Office will hold extended office hours this week in preparation for Saturday’s ABC-televised football matchup with Missouri as fewer than 3,500 tickets remain.

Tickets remain available for as little as $40 as fans with a Baylor game ticket can receive $10 off the price of admission for this week’s contest. Tickets can be purchased online at www.k-statesports.com and at the Athletics Ticket Office in Bramlage Coliseum, which will be open from 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. until the game is sold out.

Kansas State’s 4-0 start and 36-35 comeback win over No. 15 Baylor have catapulted the Wildcats into the national rankings this week as K-State checked in at No. 20 in this week’s AP poll and No. 21 in the USA Today Coaches poll.

K-State last made an appearance in the Top 25 back in 2007 when it was ranked 25th in the AP poll following a win against Colorado on October 13, while this week’s rankings were the highest by a Wildcat team since it checked in at No. 13 back in 2004. It also marked the first time since 2004 that a K-State team appeared in both polls during the same week.

Following Saturday’s win over Baylor, K-State improved to 4-0 for the second straight season and the 11th time in head coach Bill Snyder’s 20 seasons.

A total of six Big 12 teams appeared in one or both national polls this week with a seventh team just outside the rankings and receiving votes.
