The First HCS Tailgate of the 2018 Season: Kansas State vs. Mississippi State

2017 Big 12 championship game

Hey guys. I am thrilled to share this news with you that we will be hosting our first Heartland College Sports tailgate of the 2018 season in Manhattan, Kansas on Saturday, September 8th for the Kansas State vs. Mississippi State game, which kicks off at 11 a.m.

I’m looking forward to meeting a bunch of Kansas State fans who have been loyal followers of Heartland College Sports over recent years. This should be one of the best non-conference games in the Big 12 this season and any chance to see a Big 12 team beat an SEC team, especially one with the fourth-best odds to win the conference, is one I am not going to turn down.

 
The tailgate will take place on the east side of the stadium in the main parking lot. More details will follow on this specific location within the lot. I attended the K-State spring game this year, but this will be my first trip to a regular season Kansas State game, so any tips will be greatly appreciated. E-mail me: [email protected]

There will be plenty of beer (NOW is your chance for a local brewery or regional beer company to jump on board and be our official booze sponsor, also email me! :-P). Since it’s an 11 a.m. kick off, we plan to put together a very early morning tailgate, say 7 a.m., and get the ball rolling from there.

Also note, friend of the site, Tom Billings, holds his tailgate in the East Lot and it’s important to note he will be accepting donations for the campus food pantry throughout the morning! A good cause for all to get involved in!

But be sure to mark your calendars for Saturday, September 8th and we look forward to seeing lots of Kansas State fans in attendance!
