Here’s some photos from today’s Kansas State-Central Florida college football game at Bill Snyder Family Stadium in Manhattan, Kansas:

In the first quarter, the then-scoreless game was delayed for ninety minutes because of ominous storm clouds and lightning in close proximity to the stadium.
As fans sought shelter, heavy rains broke out, soaking the artificial playing surface before the storm system eventually passed by the stadium - allowing the game to resume.
If ever a Bill Snyder-coached Kansas State team was to receive a sign from the college football gods, you wouldn’t have thought it would perhaps happen when Snyder actually scheduled a credible, non-conference home opponent.
As if Snyder needed a reason to welcome Western Illinois back onto the home schedule.
Or was it Eastern Illinois? (Most likely, both.)
