MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State will break ground on its latest renovation of Bill Snyder Family Stadium during halftime of today's (SAT) game against rival Kansas.  The school spent about $90 million last year to rebuild the west side of the stadium. The new construction will enclose the north end zone, replace the existing football offices and locker rooms, and include an expanded academic learning center, improved team spaces and state-of-the-art sports medicine facilities.  It will also improve seating, fan amenities and overall aesthetics.  Kansas State has already raised $48 million for the project, which is expected to cost about $69 million. School officials anticipate it being done for the start of next season.  The current Vanier Football Complex will be demolished beginning December 8th.
