Collin Klein and Kansas State are two wins away from almost certainly playing for the school's first national championship.
The second-ranked Wildcats (10-0) are headed to Texas for the second Saturday night in a row. This time they play Baylor (4-5), which is still trying to get bowl eligible after losing its Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback to the NFL.
The Wildcats, No. 1 in the latest BCS rankings, know their title dreams will be out of reach if they lose one of their last two regular-season games. Heisman Trophy front-running quarterback Klein says they still haven't played their best game.
K-State is coming off its lowest-scoring outing of the season, in a 23-10 win at TCU. There were two turnovers, after only one the previous six games.

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) Every week, the pressure on Collin Klein becomes a little more oppressive.

Alright, folks this is where it could get really good. Or, if you are in love with the BCS like yours truly then this is where it could get dangerous (though I think it makes it even better).
What on earth happens if the entire top three loses within the next three weeks?
Both teams have looked as...
With two weeks left in the season we're switching the Heisman Ballot format up. Instead of a Top 3, a list of contenders, and a long shot we've narrowed the list down to five guys that can actually win the trophy. Here's how they rank heading into Week 12. We'll surely see some reshuffling amongst them, but barring a Bobby Boucher, Bayou Bowl-level performance from...
After almost a year of Alabama holding down the top spot in our rankings I'd completely run out of pictures of Alabama fans and cheerleaders, so it's good that we finally got some fresh blood up there. Here's how the rankings shake out after our first change at the top in 2012...
