Football Friday: Tre Walker, John Hubert, a schedule switch and Bill Snyder in a visor

Kansas State takes on Massachusetts at 6 p.m. tomorrow at Bill Snyder Family Stadium.

That means it’s time for another Football Friday.

The Wildcats are favored by 39 and should win easy. They will play two quarterbacks. Backups should see time in the second half.

That’s all the introduction we need. Let’s get to your questions:


Many have second-guessed the timing of the North Dakota State game. Looking back, I’m sure K-State would have preferred to open with someone else. The Bison, despite their affiliation with the FCS, were the strongest nonconference opponent on K-State’s schedule. UMass would have been a much softer opening opponent. In an ideal world, K-State would have switched those games and be preparing to face North Dakota State as we speak. But those dates are planned years in advance. That being said, I think the Wildcats would probably beat the Bison if they played now. They generally start slow (barely beating Eastern Kentucky and UMass in past openers) and improve with each week. But it would still be a difficult game. North Dakota State is a fine football team that out-played K-State three weeks ago. One computer poll ranked it 35th at the end of last season, and a senior-laden roster returned. That team is dangerous. It would have been a competitive game regardless of when it was played.

TCU quarterback caught wearing Kansas State sleeve during game vs. Texas Tech

Kansas State football apparel has apparently become so popular that other Big 12 teams are now sporting the powercat during games.

Several K-State fans caught TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin wearing a K-State arm sleeve while playing against Texas Tech last night and flooded social media with screen grabs of the uniform snafu.

It is hard to spot from a distance. Both TCU and K-State wear purple, so the purple-and-white sleeve doesn’t seem out of the ordinary. But look close and you can definitely see powercat logo.

And you probably thought the strangest thing about last night’s game was a fox running loose on the field.
