KSU offers bacon to lure students to women's game

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Kansas State is offering free bacon to lure students to the women's basketball team's home opener Friday against Tennessee State.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Kansas State officials initially planned to cook about 75 pounds of thick-sliced bacon. But that amount grew to 300 pounds after the pork promotion blew up on Twitter, Facebook and the Internet.

Under the promotion, students with identification will be admitted free to the game and will be rewarded with a "boat of bacon."
