All Kansas State football fans who have made a vacation out of following their favorite team to bowl games in the past know there will be much more to do in Arlington, Texas next month than simply attending the Cotton Bowl.
Getting there early, meeting up with friends, eating good food, going to the pregame pep rally and maybe playing a little golf are all part of the fun.
Here are two pregame activities that any K-Stater could enjoy:
PREGAME PEP RALLY
The K-State alumni association has welcomed huge crowds to this event in the past, and this time should be no different. Wildcats fans will have an opportunity to gather and cheer on the K-State football team at 4 p.m. on Jan. 5 at the Ballpark in Arlington.
Fans can enter the stadium, which is where the Texas Rangers play their home games and is located right next to Cowboys Stadium, for no charge. Transportation to and from the pep rally is included in the Alumni Association’s official university travel packages. Parking for the pep rally is also free.
The K-State football team, its coaches and university administrators will all participate in the event, as well as the K-State marching band, dance team, cheerleaders and mascot.
