The Kansas State soccer team released an updated schedule on Tuesday featuring an all-Big 12 slate. No out-of-conference games are allowed this fall.

The Wildcats play nine matches in a nine-week span with five of those games at home. In addition, three of the first four matches are scheduled in Manhattan at Buser Family Park.

K-State starts the season Sept. 11 against Texas Tech, a 2020 conference coaches poll favorite. K-State will end their home match stretch against Kansas 7 p.m. on Oct. 2.

The season ends on Nov. 6 at home against Oklahoma State. The Wildcats don’t usually play in November, but with the possibility of make-up matches due to COVID-19, the team could end up playing past Nov. 6.

Last season letter-winners return to the K-State team including senior midfielder Brooklyn Entz, who earned All-Big 12 honors last year.
