Bison football fans were tailgating early Friday in Manhattan, Kan., long before kickoff between NDSU and Kansas State. These videos were taken at 10:30 a.m. and kickoff wasn't scheduled until 7:30 p.m.
The temperature was forecast to be about 100 degrees in the afternoon, with kickoff temperature expected to be around 93 degrees.
In other words, it is cooking in Manhattan today.
(Warning: A couple of rough words are audible in the background very briefly.)
