MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- There will be a time not long from now that Kansas State's players will gather to reflect on the season, one that's brought unimaginable joy along with soul-crushing heartache.
It's not that time just yet.
Despite a loss two weeks ago to Baylor that knocked the seventh-ranked Wildcats from national title consideration, they still have plenty to play for Saturday against No. 23 Texas: The third conference championship in school history and an automatic BCS bowl berth.
Not a bad consolation prize for a team expected to finish somewhere in the middle of the Big 12, but that rose to No. 1 in the BCS standings before that lousy night in Waco.
"I haven't reflected back on the season. I haven't reflected forward," Kansas State coach Bill Snyder said this week. "I have reflected on our most recent game and our preparation for the game coming up. That's where my attention has been."
It certainly hasn't been on No. 12 Oklahoma, which plays TCU earlier Saturday.
