Iowa State announced on Tuesday evening that they are limiting attendance at Saturday’s football game between the Wildcats and Cyclones to just family, guests of student-athletes, staff, the marching band and spirit squad.

The announcement comes just hours after K-State Athletics announced they are not allowing fans in Bramlage Coliseum throughout the month of November.

Iowa State is also limiting their attendance for men’s and women’s basketball to only family and guests of student-athletes and staff throughout November as well.

“The safety of all individuals remains our priority and with increased COVID positivity and hospitalization rates throughout the state, we feel this is the appropriate action,” Iowa State athletic director Jamie Pollard said in a letter to Iowa State fans.

The announcement also comes after Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds issued a statewide mask mandate and placed new restrictions on gatherings in public areas on Monday.

K-State’s final home game on Dec. 5 against Texas at Bill Snyder Family Stadium is still set for 25 percent capacity.

Saturday’s game against Iowa State kicks off at 3 p.m. on FOX and can be heard on the K-State Sports Network.
