Eighty Kansas State students will put their hands on the Bill Snyder statue outside Kansas State’s football stadium on Saturday morning. Last one off gets a free trip to the Wildcats’ 2016 opener at Stanford.

The K-State athletic department is sponsoring the contest. Students can also choose to put their hands on the gate entrance a few feet behind the statue.

The contest begins at 10 a.m. Saturday and will last until there’s a winner, with a 31-hour time limit. If multiple students remain then, K-State will decide a winner through a “bracketed rock-paper-scissors contest.”

K-State opens the season at Stanford on Sept. 2.

Tuesday night, Dec. 8, 2015, in New York, Kansas State coach Bill Snyder was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. Here was how Snyder was introduced.
