MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury spoke glowingly of the fan base at Kansas State, where no matter how much the Wildcats are winning or losing, they always seem to make it a tough road environment.
“It’s a great home-field advantage,” said Kingsbury, who has experienced it as both a player and a coach. “They show up, they’re loud (and) the players feed off it.”
The Red Raiders visit the Wildcats on Saturday, and the comments were striking given their loss to Texas last week. Thousands of fans left their home game in the third quarter, which has become all-too-common at Texas Tech, and missed a fourth-quarter rally that fell just short.
