The K-State Athletics schedules are available to download and import into Microsoft Outlook, many desktop or mobile applications or any other standard calendar program.
The Comma Separated Values (.csv) file of the calendar will work for Microsoft Outlook, Palm and some other calendar programs. These files do not update automatically.
iCalendar (.ics) is an open standard supported by an increasing number of handheld calendar applications or other standard calendar programs. For example, Apple's iCal (Mac only), Microsoft Outlook 2007 or later (Windows), Google Calendar, Yahoo Calendar and Mozilla Sunbird can all subscribe to an .ics calendar and receive updates automatically on a configurable basis.
All dates, times, and opponents are subject to change. In case of discrepancy, the information listed on k-statesports.com should be considered the official start time and date of any game or event.
All times are listed as Central Time.
Game times that have not been announced at the time of your download will be set for "All Day"
Once you import the file into your Outlook calendar, any changes made to a sport's schedule will need to be manually updated in your calendar. Check this page on k-statesports.com for the latest versions.
