"Barn" Culture

Auburn/Kansas State Moved To Thursday Night

Written by Cole Locascio

The Big 12, along with Kansas State's athletic department, has announced that the Auburn - Kansas State game will be played on a Thursday night (Sept. 18). The meeting between the two schools will be a "return" matchup for Auburn since Kansas State visited the Plains in the 2007 season opener, which resulted in a 23-13 win for the Tigers.

Next year's game will be the fourth meeting in history between the two programs, and the first trip to Manhattan (KS) since the 1978 season. Auburn holds the series record, 3-0.

Even though the location isn't ideal, and the game is on a Thursday night, I still expect the Auburn faithful to have a strong turnout in Bill Snyder Stadium this fall.

The game will be broadcast nationally on ESPN.
