It looks as if Arizona will again host another wave of purple pride as the Kansas State Wildcats (7-5, 5-4 Big 12) look to take on the Michigan Wolverines (7-5, 3-5 Big 10) in this year’s Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl  in Tempe, Ariz. on Dec. 28. Last year the Wildcats took on Oregon at the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Ariz.

This will  mark K-State’s third trip following its 1993 Copper Bowl and 2001 Insight.com Bowl contests, as well as the 17th bowl game in school history. This is their 15th bowl game under head coach Bill Snyder.

The game will be played at Sun Devil Stadium at 9:15 p.m. CT on ESPN. This will be the first time the Wildcats and Wolverines will play.

The Wildcats, who were originally projected to play in the Holiday Bowl, have been diverted since Baylor will playing in the Fiesta Bowl and Oklahoma playing in the Sugar Bowl.

Though the Wildcats got to a slow start this season at 2-4, they gained momentum, showed tremendous improvement and finished strong. The Wolverines on the other hand, came out of the gates on fire with a 5-0 start, moving up to No. 18 in the nation before suffering through five losses in their remain seven games.
11,000 tickets are allotted for K-State seating for the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl.
