Manhattan, meet Morgantown. The West Virginia city is nestled in a valley in the Appalachians next to the Monongahela River. It’s a sprawling town of nearly 60,000, about half of which is university students. But the metropolitan area has a population of 117,000.
Next weekend, when the Wildcats face the Mountaineers on their home turf, it will be the first time K-State has played there since 1931.
But as the newest addition to the Big 12 Conference, we can expect to see more of Morgantown in the future.
The game will begin at 6 p.m., so those dedicated fans who follow the team to West Virginia can spend the time before the game — or the day after — enjoying the natural beauty of the area. Here are some places worth checking out.
