    New No. 1, same focused Wildcats

    Kansas State was named the No. 1 team in the BCS for the first time in its history on Sunday. But there didn’t seem to be a different feel around the program as players arrived on Monday. And K-State coach Bill Snyder said he hopes

    Kinder: Cats now No. 1 with a little help from… the Aggies?

    Two wins by Texas A&M, nearly 15 years apart, might just be the most significant victories in Kansas State history. One win — 36-33 in double-overtime against K-State in the 1998 Big 12 championship — ended the Wildcats’ best chance at playing for a national title in the 117

    K-State, Oregon on course for BCS title game

    NEW YORK — Kansas State and Oregon are now on course to play for the BCS national championship. After Alabama was upset by Texas A&M, the new BCS standings have the Wildcats (.9674) first and the Ducks (.9497) second. Notre Dame (.9396) is third, not too far

    Cats defense carries the day in win

    FORT WORTH, Texas — On a night when offense came at a premium, it was the Kansas State defense that turned in one of its best performances of the season. The Wildcats needed it, too, because very little went right offensively, even with quarterback Collin Klein

    Wildcats making the most of turnovers

    Ask and few Kansas State players can tell you the last time they turned the ball over. That’s what near perfection can do to a team. At 9-0 and ranked No. 2 in the BCS, the Wildcats know a little something about perfection this season

    Cats shut down impact players

    One way for Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein to win the Heisman Trophy, aside from his dominance on the field, is for the Wildcats’ defense to stop other top players in their tracks. K-State already disposed of a trio of quarterbacks in West Virginia’s

    Pease offers change of pace for Wildcats

    Things didn’t get started off right for Angelo Pease when he came to Kansas State. Coming from Hutchinson Community College in 2011, the all-purpose offensive player arrived in camp late, and didn’t have adequate time to learn the offense. When the Wildcats tried to

    Snyder hopes Klein plays Saturday

    You can’t place your bets in Las Vegas just yet, but it appears Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein just might play this Saturday at TCU after all. Three days after apparently suffering a concussion, at least on some level, K-State coach Bill Snyder said

    Patterson and K-State go way back

    TCU head coach Gary Patterson is a Kansas native, and a former Kansas State football player. When asked during the Big 12 teleconference if his K-State friends would be upset if TCU upended the N0. 3-ranked Wildcats, Patterson responded to the conundrum. “It is a dilemma,

    Wildcats handling enhanced ‘noise’

    Going undefeated and maintaining a perfect season brings new pressures every week for this Kansas State football team. Every game is a big game, and while the Wildcats have relished the underdog role, being ranked No. 2 in the BCS hardly allows that school of thought
