    Marshall leads Tigers’ dynamic offensive attack

    Nick Marshall can run with the football. Kansas State coach Bill Snyder says he can throw it too. But the way this season has gone for K-State in defending quarterbacks who run, Marshall’s ability to do just that should be a worry for the

    Auburn preps for rare non-conference road game

    It should come as no surprise that few outside of the state of Kansas have the 20th-ranked Wildcats beating No. 5 Auburn on Thursday night. On paper, the visiting Tigers do appear superior. After all, it was just last season when Auburn played Florida State in

    Cats have work to do before Auburn
