Scouting the Cal Bears: they may be golden but the result is more likely to be grisly

Jared Goff throws from the shoulder. At 6-4, 205, he has a nice release and can get rid of the ball quickly, but it's a three-quarter throwing motion. In their game against Northwestern the Wildcats tipped, deflected or batted down four passes, one of which was returned for a touchdown by linebacker Collin Ellis, who got another pick six when a pass bounced off a receiver'...

In a match-up that, before the last few weeks of the college football regular season, was supposed to be the National Championship game, the well-coached Kansas State Wildcats (Bill Snyder is one of the best coaches all-time) face the likely NFL-bound, Chip Kelly Oregon Ducks and their high powered, devastating offense. While this game doesn't feature as many high profile...

For K-State, there's still so, so much to play for

KANSAS CITY, Mo. The last time we saw the Kansas State football team, Baylor quarterback Nick Florence had done his best Dean Wormer bit, marching straight into the Delta house and dropping the big one. After two months of complete indifference, the Bears even decided to play defense, orchestrating a little napalm tap dance all over the Wildcats' No. 1 ranking in the Bowl Championship...

MANHATTAN, Kan. The Aggies taketh away, the Aggies giveth. Eventually. Its quite fitting, Brice Libel says, chuckling, that Texas A&M is the one that potentially put us back into that.

K-State-Oklahoma State preview

Kansas State has already beaten two ranked teams on the road in Oklahoma and West Virginia, and it blitzed then-No. 15 Texas Tech 55-24 last Saturday to remain undefeated.

Oklahoma State out to end K-State's perfect season

Oklahoma State remembers how it felt to be knocked from the BCS title hunt late in a season. It happened to the Cowboys just late year. They were ranked No. 2 in the country when they visited Iowa State in mid-November, and two overtimes later they headed home with a 37-31 loss that eventually relegated Oklahoma State to the Fiesta Bowl - rather than playing for a national championship...

For K-State, BCS politicking is now underway

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- After he was done stomping, Chris Harper got busy stumping.

K-State-vs-West Va. has it all for football fans

Death by Maserati or death by combine? Kansas State prefers to kill its victims slowly run, punt, eat up clock; by the fourth quarter, you've either bled to death or combusted out of sheer frustration. West Virginia strikes quickly, surgically, a swarm of piranhas in cleats. In one corner, an offense plucked straight out of a video game, instant gratification, basketball on...

Kansas State QB Collin Klien's behind-the-back pass fails miserably (Video)

Kansas State Wildcats quarterback Collin Klein tried a behind-the-back pass to running back Chris Harper with 3rd and goal on the 1-yard-line during the second quarter of Saturday's game against the Miami Hurricanes. It was a risky play, and it didn't go very well. Klein's "pass" was a backward lateral that was out of the reach of wide receiver Chris...

K-State need not look far for cautionary tale

Kansas State coach Bill Snyder has made sure to remind his team about last season's opener, and the peril that comes with overlooking an opponent. The Wildcats needed a late touchdown pass from Collin Klein to Chris Harper to knock off Eastern Kentucky. They proceeded to win 10 games and go to the Cotton Bowl, but the season might have had a very different outcome had the opener...
