Fox Sports Kansas City:
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) It sometimes resembles musical chairs, the way Kansas State coach Bill Snyder has begun to use contrasting quarterbacks Jake Waters and Daniel Sams.
Waters heads onto the field for the first series. Sams replaces him. Waters goes back out when the Wildcats need a spark. Sams does the same thing.
It's the kind of substitution pattern that happens regularly with running backs and wide receivers, but not quarterbacks -- not the most critical guy on the field, the one who calls all the plays and touches the ball on every snap and often decides whether a team wins or loses.
The oddest thing about the system? It's working.
"We've had I don't know how many games we've done it, and in practice," Waters said. "At first it takes some getting used to, but now we're comfortable with it. We kind of expect it, so we can prepare ourselves better for it."
Make no mistake: Waters wants to be the man. So does Sams, for that matter....
BEST OF MAXIM
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Best idea at Kansas State since the hiring of Bill Snyder in 1988?
Well ... OK, we won't go that far. But baby, it's close.
In case you haven't heard by now, the Wildcats' women's basketball program -- perennially one of the best in the Big 12 -- is doubling down on the awesome for its home-opener Friday against Tennessee...
Sure, students love to get free t-shirts, but schools can do better than that. This week, Kansas State is trying an awesome new ploy to get students to attend the women’s basketball opener vs. Tennessee State:

The college basketball season is right around the corner (yes, it's here already). For the Kansas State women's team the action kicks off at 6:45 PM ET against Tennessee State. Just to make sure there are bodies in the seats the athletic department is running what could arguably be the best promotion ever.
Ever the curious fat...
There’s nothing better than free food, right?
Well, that’s what people will get if they attend the Kansas State women’s basketball game against Tennessee State on Friday. Students who arrive early enough will be treated to free bacon.

The series started in 1933 when Pete Cawthon’s stout defense allowed the opposing team to score in just two games. Kansas State was not one of those two teams. Cawthon’s Matadors, who became the Red Raiders in 1936, shut out the Wildcats 6-0. The two teams would wait 30 years before facing off again, when Tech would get a 51-13 victory in Lubbock.
Sometimes you have to be creative to put butts in seats. It looks like the Kansas State Women’s Basketball team is doing just that. They will be giving away a “boat of bacon” to each student that attends the game this Friday. With student ID of course:
