Iowa State’s homecoming football game on Oct. 29 against Kansas State has been set for an 11 a.m. kick on Fox Sports Network, the Big 12 announced on Monday.

The Wildcats are 3-3 after losing 38-17 to Oklahoma on Saturday. They’ll host Texas this week while the Cyclones have a bye.

As I’m sure you’ll remember, Kansas State won last season’s matchup 38-35 after the Cyclones gave up a 21-point second half lead in Manhattan. The Wildcats have won the last eight meetings between the two teams.
