Free student admission for Texas game, prizes, travel packages can be won


As the Kansas State men’s basketball team begins to come to an end, there are opportunities for students to get some major prizes in honor of #MakeMadness.

Tonight, K-State hosts Texas at home for their second matchup this season. The game is set to tip at 8 p.m., and the doors will open at 6:30 p.m.. Admission is free for all students with a student ID, even if you do not hold an athletic pass.

There are also two opportunities to win trips. One to the NCAA Tournament and the other for the Big 12 Tournament. They both include tickets and hotel packages for two, as well as airfare for the NCAA package.

Willie the Wildcat will also be handing out K-State gear, including jerseys, t-shirts, and accessories. Cash is also to be dropping from the catwalk.

The first 1,500 students there will recieve free food. The food will range from nacho baskets, boneless wings, pizza and more.

The gameday shuttle will also be running, and will be picking up students at Kramer and Derby communities from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m.. Shuttles will also be making return routes one hour after the game as well.

With prizes, food and cash, Bramlage Coliseum is the place to be on Wednesday night. Get your photo with Phil the Bobcat, eat for free and watch the Wildcats take on the Longhorns.
