Kansas State clinched the Big 12 regular season crown and the automatic BCS bid it ensures after topping Texas, 42-24 on Saturday night. The Wildcats, no longer in the hunt for the national title game, will take part in the 2013 Fiesta Bowl, where they will play either an at-large team or the Big East’s BCS representative, Louisville. The Pac-12′s Oregon is a likely foe for the Wildcats. The bid to the Fiesta Bowl is Kansas State’s second BCS bid in the BCS era, it first coming in the 2004 Fiesta Bowl after the Wildcats won the now defunct Big 12 Championship Game over a previously No. 1 Oklahoma squad. The Wildcats lost that 2004 Fiesta Bowl to Ohio State in a fun game from Tempe, Arizona. The Wildcats’ victory over Texas ensured that Kansas State would claim the league’s automatic BCS bid, but Oklahoma, which clinched a share of the conference title Saturday afternoon, is at the top of the at-large list that will be available to BCS bowl committees when they pick teams tomorrow.
