Baylor left a mark on K-State's players in '12 -- now the 'Cats want to return the favor

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Baylor left a scar. A little one, shaped like the Bears' logo, just to the right of Ryan Mueller's big heart. The last time Mueller's Kansas State Wildcats went to Waco, Nov. 17, 2012, they were 10-0, the toast of college football. K-State rolled in ranked No. 1 in the most recent Bowl Championship Series standings (remember those?), seemingly on a collision course...

College GameDay chooses Kansas State-Baylor and the Big 12 on Championship Weekend

College football is a sport made for — and by — upsets, especially late in the season. Last year, Auburn upset Alabama, preventing what felt like an inevitable clash between the Crimson Tide and Florida State for the last BCS championship. Two years ago, Oregon lost to Stanford late in the season, enabling Alabama to face Notre Dame for the BCS title. Also two years ago, another...

No. 11 K-State hopes to right the run against Kansas

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- After one of the worst rushing performances in the Bill Snyder era, Kansas State would be hard-pressed to find a better opponent to get back on track. Not only are the No. 11 Wildcats preparing to face their bitter in-state rival, they'll also be facing a Kansas team that just allowed Oklahoma's Semaje Perine to run for 427 yards, breaking the Football Bowl Subdivision...

Kansas State Preview

While the stakes are not as high as high as they were in Kansas State’s 2012 visit, Thursday night’s nationally televised game under the lights at Milan Puskar Stadium between West Virginia University and the 12th ranked Wildcats still have some implications on both the Big 12 Race and the national bowl scene.

QBs share spotlight when Auburn visits K-State

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) In many ways, the direction of Kansas State and Auburn the past couple of seasons has been shaped by a surprising decision that Jake Waters made nearly two years ago. The Wildcats were about to lose senior Heisman Trophy candidate Collin Klein, and coach Bill Snyder wanted to land a junior college quarterback who had a similar dual-threat skillset. Waters was...

Heisman finalist Klein returns as K-State coach

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- So many of their mannerisms are the same. So is the attention to detail, the toughness -- the grit that has come to define not only them, but also their football program. In fact, the only real difference between them may be their ages. Bill Snyder turns 75 in October. Collin Klein turns 25 next month. So it makes sense that when Klein, a Heisman Trophy finalist...

Report: Collin Klein Will Return To Kansas State, Join Bill Snyder’s Staff

Former Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein is calling it a playing career, and will reportedly return to Manhattan as a member of the Wildcats’ staff. Klein famously led Kansas State to an 11-2 record in 2012, helped the team win its first Big 12 title since 2003, and was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy, ultimately coming in third behind Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel and...

East-West Shrine Game 2014 Practice Overview: Day 1

QUARTERBACKSThe quarterback class in this East-West Shrine game is clearly head and shoulders superior to that off last year (Colby Cameron, Collin Klein, Nathan Stanley, Alex Carder, Seth Doege, and Matt Scott); so much in fact, this roster could see 3-4 quarterbacks drafted come May. From the West side of practice, both Eastern Illinois' Jimmy Garoppolo and Cornell's Jeff...
