Morgan Burns has been at Kansas State long enough to know when a big game is next on the schedule.
He can tell by the number of students who wish him luck between classes and the amount of fans that approach him in town. It happens a lot more when K-State is playing a conference rival than a directional school.
But it happens most when No. 20 K-State is about to face No. 5 Auburn. Based on fan response, Burns is expecting a special crowd.
“Every gameday we get out there and start warming up. You can smell the popcorn and hear the band playing, all the fans yelling chants. I just picture that times 10,” Burns said. “As far as the crowd, they are going to be excited. Everyone on campus is talking Auburn. This game is going to be crazy.”
