Kansas State safety Denzel Goolsby (20) tackles Oklahoma running back Trey Sermon during a game at Bill Snyder Family Stadium in 2017. The Wildcats and Sooners play in Manhattan for the first time since that contest at 11 a.m. Oct. 26.

Kansas State football will have to be up early for homecoming.

The Big 12 Conference and ABC/ESPN announced Monday that K-State’s homecoming game versus Oklahoma will kick off at 11 a.m. Oct. 26. ABC will handle the television broadcast.

The Wildcats have won five of their last seven homecoming games, including a 31-12 victory over Oklahoma State last season. But it won't come easy this year. Oklahoma enters this week undefeated and ranked No. 5 in the country. And the Wildcats haven't beaten the Sooners at home since 1996. K-State's last win in the series was a 31-30 win in Norman, Oklahoma, in 2014.

But before K-State can turn its attention to Oklahoma, it has a game this week, hosting TCU at 1:30 p.m. at Bill Snyder Family Stadium.

The contest will air on FSN.
