MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Chris Klieman probably felt good about the team he was inheriting at Kansas State when the new coach looked down the depth chart and saw a veteran quarterback in Skylar...
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Latest on the NFL's annual scouting combine in Indianapolis (all times local):
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State's defense gave up big plays, its offense struggled to consistently move the ball and its special teams made more mistakes in one game Saturday than they often do in an entire season.
The Wildcats were still good enough to beat Kansas.
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Last season, quarterbacks and receivers dominated the headlines in the Big 12.
Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield won the Heisman Trophy, Oklahoma State's James Washington won the Biletnikoff Award for the nation's top receiver and Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph won the Unitas Golden Arm Award for the nation's top senior or fourth-year quarterback.
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State broke huddle against Oklahoma State at one point Saturday with three running backs joining quarterback Skyler Thompson in the backfield, the quartet making a unique diamond-like formation that coach Bill Snyder said has been part of the playbook for 30 years.
True or not, the claim was fitting given the Wildcats' entire game plan looked about that old.
Some things to know about Week 6 in the Big 12 Conference:
WACO, Texas (AP) — The Kansas State Wildcats finally got angry about their performance, and it seemed to make a difference in the second half of their last game.
"I think there is that, what I've been looking for, that anger," coach Bill Snyder said. "That's not at anybody other than ourselves, in regards to how we are playing."
PHOENIX (AP) — Bill Snyder stood on a makeshift stage in the middle of a baseball stadium with a roof, a sparkling trophy at his side depicting a football sailing through cactus uprights.
If this was the end of his storied coaching career at Kansas State, it sure was a great way to go out.
Alex Delton ran for 158 yards and accounted for four touchdowns, leading the Wildcats to a 35-17 Cactus Bowl victory over UCLA on Tuesday night in what could be Snyder's final game.
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Bill Snyder learned to appreciate special teams about six decades ago, when the 78-year-old Kansas State coach was a small-college wingback who wasn't good enough to play anywhere else.
The emphasis that he places on them showed Saturday.
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Bill Snyder was doused in ice water as the final seconds ticked off the clock on his 200th career win, then carried off the field by his celebrating Kansas State players after their final home game.
Then, Snyder promptly brought everyone back to reality.
"You know, I probably don't sound in a pretty good mood," he said, "but I'm responsive to how we played and we played rather ugly today. I don't feel good about that, I assure you."
WACO, Texas (AP) — Baylor fans have grown accustomed to seeing offensive explosions in recent years, especially since moving into McLane Stadium in 2014.
If the Bears' last two home games are any indication, they might have to get used to watching them come from opponents.
Kansas State freshman Alex Barnes rushed for 120 of his 129 yards and all four of his touchdowns in the second half to pace the Wildcats to 35 points during that span and a 42-21 win Saturday.
