Kansas State Wildcats took their number one ranking and Heisman hopes to Waco Texas. The trip was not good. The offensive play of the Wildcats was bad. And the BCS ended the day in an ugly mix up. The final score was 52-24. The win was epic. The loss was catastrophic. While the moment was too big for the Wildcats' it seemed just right for the Bears. The Bears came out with energy and determination. They played good. The offense and the defense both played for prime time.The Sports Illustrated cover boy and his team faltered under the hot lights of being number one. They played terribly.
