Kansas State and Nebraska have played each other almost 100 times over the years. The Cornhuskers have won the vast majority of those games, but the Wildcats have made things interesting since Bill Snyder’s arrival.
Talk to any K-State fan about the greatest wins in program history, and you will hear victories over Nebraska in 98, 2000 and 2003 mentioned right up there with K-State 35, Oklahoma 7.
This is a rivalry, and the sellout crowd at Snyder Family Stadium tonight will once again show just how heated a rivalry it can be when both teams are playing well.
Adding to the excitement is the fact that Nebraska is on its way out of the conference to the Big Ten. Some K-State fans are happy to see the Huskers go, others will miss them. But everyone agrees they want to send Nebraska on their way with a loss.
The final Big 12 game between these teams should be a good one. (more…)
