COWBOYS STADIUM

HOME OF THE AT&T COTTON BOWL Cowboys Stadium officially opened on June 6, 2009, when George Strait took the stage for the venue’s first public event. The new sports and entertainment venue in Arlington, Texas, between Dallas and Fort Worth, is the home of the Dallas Cowboys, the country’s mostwatched NFL team, and the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic. Designed by the HKS Sports & Entertainment Group, the venue enhances the international Cowboys brand with its modern, progressive architecture while incorporating elements of Texas Stadiumʼs heritage such as the shape of the roofʼs opening and the Ring of Honor. The 3 million-square-foot stadium has an approximate capacity of up to 100,000 fans. As the largest NFL venue ever built, the new stadium boasts the most spectacular column-free room in the world, stretching a quarter-mile in length. HKS Brandspace helped the Dallas Cowboys achieve an awe-inspiring sponsor presence to match that of the stadium. Designed to be open or closed, depending on weather conditions, the expansive retractable roof is the largest of its kind in the world and measures approximately 660,800 square feet. When closed, the roof encompasses 104 million cubic feet of volume, making it the largest enclosed NFL stadium in the world. The retractable roof is designed specifically to emulate the current Texas Stadium opening which is recognized around the world and allow views inward and outward. Each panel can open or close in 12 minutes. From directly above, the entire playing field can be seen and the opening itself is visible from an elevation of five miles. The stadium features two monumental arches, soaring 292 feet above the playing field, which support a retractable roof. As the longest single span roof structure in the world, each boxed arch is 35 feet deep by 17 feet wide. Weighing 3,255 tons each, these impressive structures span 1,225 feet in length. The arches form a striking silhouette on the Arlington landscape as sunlight reflects against the metallic surface during the day and a tailored lighting system reflects the form at night. The stadium features the largest retractable end zone doors in the world. Each has a five-leaf, clear, retractable opening measuring 120 feet high by 180 feet wide. The five 38-foot panels take only 18 minutes to open or close. By using clear glass for the door panels, spectators experience panoramic views from within the seating bowl and when circulating through the stadium concourses. Moreover, the operability provides air circulation during game-day and non-game-day events. One of the most compelling architectural features of the stadium design is the canted glass exterior wall. The 86-foot-high glass, curtain-wall surface slopes outwardly at a 14degree angle to create a luminescent glow, day or night. A fritted glass system transitions

up the elevation to create a dynamic, ever-changing aesthetic depending on the time of day. At night, a series of internal lights gently wash the glass wall to create a glow across the façade. Within the seating bowl, Cowboys fans will be provided with a one-of-a-kind feature, a centerhung video board. Hanging approximately 90 feet above the field from the roof structure, the innovative video center spans between the 20-yard lines and features four individual boards – two facing the sidelines and two facing the end zones. The sideline boards measure 72 feet tall by 160 feet wide, while those facing the end zones measure 27 feet tall by 48 feet wide. All four boards are angled toward the stands for optimal viewing. The stunning combination of these boards will immerse spectators with video imagery, creating a premium on upper level seats and presenting the game in a way never before experienced. Streaming across the interior seating façade is a vivid 360 degree matrix board, which offer advertisers “moments in time” during the game. A signature architectural element for the new venue is the 365 entry. The elongated arch form stretches 224 feet and is detailed with steel plating. It simulates the monumental arches while framing the Dallas Cowboys Pro Shop and box office. This entry is framed by two dramatic 30-foot-tall light walls, providing an upscale, vertical space for both game days and events during the week. The stadium is designed to allow every fan a great view of the action – whether in the general admission seats or luxury suites. The venue also offers a wide range of other fan functions including party platforms, exterior plazas, a variety of concourses, suites and clubs, the Cowboys Hall of Fame, a pro shop and numerous food options. The exterior end zone plazas serve as key gathering and entertainment spaces. Unique among NFL stadiums, these broad boulevards offer a combination of permanent hardscape and green spaces to accentuate game-day celebrations and year-round activities. The locations support a variety of functions: main entries for stadium spectators, sponsorship platforms for Cowboysʼ corporate partners and secured VIP tent areas, among others. The end zone plazas offer fans interactive experiences with concerts and entertainment, while tailgating before or after events. Each exterior plaza has been designed with perimeters for special events such as the Super Bowl. The new stadium design extends a small portion of seating through both end zones. Behind these seats are extended concourses to be used as standing room only areas or additional party platforms. With stunning views to the playing field and exterior plazas, the platforms offer one of the most distinctive viewing elevations in the NFL.

BOWL PREVIEW

TOP 10 MATCHUP AWAITS CATS, HOGS IN ARLINGTON

AT&T COTTON BOWL PREVIEW Two programs with energized fan bases, terrific head coaches, identical 10-2 records and Top 8 BCS rankings highlight the matchup between No. 8 K-State and No. 6 Arkansas in the 2012 AT&T Cotton Bowl. Gearing up to meet for the first time in the postseason and just the fifth time overall, Kansas State and Arkansas will square off on January 6 in one of only three bowl matchups this season, in addition to the BCS National Championship, pitting two Top 10 teams against each other. The Cotton Bowl marks the Wildcats’ 15th bowl game in school history, and the 13th under head coach Bill Snyder, as the Cats will face an SEC opponent for just the second time in a bowl game and Arkansas for the first time. Snyder took the program to 11-straight bowl games from the 1993-2003 seasons during his first stint as head coach of the Wildcat program. After narrowly missing postseason play in the first season of his second tenure in 2009 (6-6 record), Snyder quickly led K-State back into the bowl picture in 2010 when Kansas State played in the inaugural New Era Pinstripe Bowl following a 7-5 regular season. Now, the Wildcats are back in the Cotton Bowl for the first time since 2001 following a 10-2 campaign in 2011. The similarities of the two programs, coupled with a primetime matchup on FOX and a Top 10 contest, should make the 2012 AT&T Cotton Bowl one of the most anticipated matchups in the 2011-12 bowl season. A LOOK AT THE WILDCATS Playing in its second straight bowl game, Kansas State will look to end the season on a four-game winning streak, while the Wildcats look to avenge a bowl loss to Syracuse last year in the 2010 Pinstripe Bowl. The Wildcats are also looking for their first postseason victory since 2002, a win over Arizona State in the Holiday Bowl. K-State’s success in 2011 was largely in part to a successful ground game, which consistently moved the ball down the field and turned drives into touchdowns, and an opportunistic defense, which was much improved from a year ago, that ranked among the nation’s best against the run and in turnover margin. But, as much as the success of 2011 stemmed from a team that came together, believed in each other and played together, K-State was fortunate to have one of the nation’s best and most valuable quarterbacks and perhaps the “unsung hero” in college football this season in junior Collin Klein. Heading into the Cotton Bowl matchup, Klein is just one rushing touchdown shy of tying Ricky Williams’ (Texas) Big 12 season record of 27 and also the NCAA single-season record by a quarterback (Ricky Dobbs, Navy). Week in and Week out, Klein has continued to prove that he is among the top leaders and toughest competitors in all of college football.

Klein continues to lead the Wildcat offense as he ranks second nationally among BCS quarterbacks in rushing with his 1,099 net yards and has five 100-yard games on the season with 26 rushing scores. An All-Big 12 performer, Klein has also thrown for 12 touchdowns to rank fifth nationally in touchdowns responsible for. Running back John Hubert has also stepped up to have a breakthrough season as the sophomore eclipsed the 100-yard barrier in three games this year and proved to be a second running threat to complement Klein. Hubert finished the regular season with 933 rushing yards with three touchdowns. An improved unit, K-State’s defense is currently seventh nationally in turnover margin (+13) and 27th against the run. Big 12 Defensive Newcomer of the Year and First Team All-Big 12 pick Arthur Brown leads the team with 95 tackles, which ranks ninth in the Big 12, while Walter Camp All-American and Thorpe Award semifinalist Nigel Malone’s seven interceptions and lead the league and rank third nationally. He also has totaled 16 passes defended this season. Defensive back David Garrett and linebacker Emmanuel Lamur have collected 78 and 77 tackles, respectively, to rank second and third on the team, while defensive end Meshak Williams’ 10.0 tackles for loss and 7.0 sacks lead the squad. A LOOK AT THE RAZORBACKS Arkansas heads into the Cotton Bowl with an identical 10-2 record as the Razorbacks’ lone two losses came on the road to No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama. The Razorbacks head into the matchup with one of the top passing and scoring offenses in the country, while its pass defense and special teams units also have played a pivotal role in head coach Bobby Petrino’s success this season. Quarterback Tyler Wilson, a First Team All-SEC selection, has thrown for 3,422 yards this season and 22 touchdowns while completing 63.1 percent of his passes. He is averaging 285 yards per game through the air, many of which have gone to star wideout Jarius Wright. An elite group of wide receivers highlight the Arkansas passing game as Wright leads the way with 63 catches for 1,029 yards and 11 touchdowns. Joe Adams also has 49 catches for three scores and also leads the nation in punt returns, averaging 16.2 yards per return with three touchdowns. On defense, Arkansas is stout against the pass as Jake Bequette has collected 8.0 sacks this season and Tramain Thomas has five interceptions to lead the secondary. Jerry Franklin leads all defenders with 93 tackles and also has carded 10.0 tackles for loss and recovered two fumbles. As a team, UA is yielding 371 yards per game, including 174 per game on the ground, while opponents are converting on 38 percent of their third downs against the Razorbacks.

WILDCAT NOTEBOOK WILDCATS HEADED TO AT&T COTTON BOWL

AT&T COTTON BOWL AT A GLANCE

After one of the most successful regular seasons in nearly a decade, Kansas State received its 15th bowl berth alltime and 13th under head coach Bill Snyder when the Wildcats were selected to meet Arkansas in the 76th AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The Wildcats, behind National Coach of the Year Bill Snyder, wrapped up the regular season with a 10-2 overall record (7-2 Big 12) and finished second in the Big 12 race after being picked eighth in the preseason. Kansas State, which will face Arkansas in a bowl for the first time in school history, jumped out to a 7-0 start to the 2011 season, which included wins against Miami, Baylor, Missouri and Texas Tech, before dropping a pair or contests against Top 10 opponents. But, the Cats bounced back to win their final three games of the season (Texas A&M, Texas and Iowa State) to catapult the program to its first 10-win season since 2003.

Kansas State will face Arkansas for just the fifth time in the history of the two programs on January 6 and the first time in a bowl game. K-State is 3-1 all-time against the Razorbacks, which includes a 1-0 record at home and on the road and a 1-1 mark on neutral sites. The last meeting between the two schools was back in 1967 as Arkansas knocked off the Cats, 28-7, in Little Rock. Prior to 1967, other meetings include a 1926 K-State win in Manhattan (16-7), a 1911 Wildcat win (3-0) in Kansas City and a 1910 Kansas State win (5-0) in Fayetteville in the first-ever meeting.

K-STATE AND THE SEC Kansas State will be playing its 22nd game all-time against current members of the Southeastern Conference when the Wildcats face Arkansas in the 2012 Cotton Bowl. Prior to the Cotton Bowl matchup with Arkansas, K-State’s last game against an SEC opponent was a 23-13 loss at Auburn to open the 2007 season. All time, K-State is 6-15 against current SEC teams with only one of those games, the 2001 Cotton Bowl vs. Tennessee, coming in the postseason. Ironically, K-State has winning records all-time against just two SEC schools, Tennessee and Arkansas – K-State’s last SEC bowl opponent and this year’s opposition in Arlington.

RIDING THE PURPLE WAVE With Kansas State fans purchasing all of the school’s ticket allotment, and then some, for the 2012 AT&T Cotton Bowl, the purple faithful continues to be one of the nation’s top traveling group of supporters. K-State was allotted 12,500 tickets to the 2012 AT&T Cotton Bowl – all of which were sold through pre-sale orders prior to K-State learning its bowl destination. K-State then sold an additional 1,000 standing-room only passes to students and a late allotment of 400 extra reserved seats sold out online to donors and season ticket holders in just 15 minutes. In 2003, an estimated 37,000 Wildcat fans swarmed to Tempe, Ariz., to watch Kansas State take on Ohio State in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. The Wildcats had an estimated 40,000 fans travel to Dallas for the 1997 Cotton Bowl, a figure nearly matched for the 2001 Cotton Bowl.

MORE ON CLOSE GAMES Of all the seasons K-State has played football, only twice – 1911 and 1935 – has it played as many as seven games decided by seven points or less, and never has a Wildcat team won more than three games decided by seven points or less in a single year … until this season. During its 10-win season in 2011, K-State has been tied or trailed after the first quarter six times, and in five games it was tied or trailed at the half. In the second halves of games, six times K-State trailed or was tied with its opponent, only to come back and win. In a seventh game against Oklahoma State, the Wildcats fell behind by 10 in the second half only to come back and tie the game with less than three minutes remaining.

ONE OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL’S GREAT STORIES Following a three-game winning streak to end the regular season, K-State jumped to No. 8 in the final regular season BCS rankings heading into its Cotton Bowl matchup with No. 6 Arkansas. The Cats’ 10-2 start remains one of the top stories in college football this season after being picked to finish eighth in the Big 12 preseason race. In fact, K-State has won 10 games a total of eight times under head coach Bill Snyder with the last one coming back in 2003. Snyder has been named Big 12 and National Coach of the Year by numerous publications and organizations following the Cats’ success this season.

THE 150 CLUB Head coach Bill Snyder picked up the 150th victory of his career in the season opener against Eastern Kentucky. He joined Frank Beamer (Virginia Tech), Steve Spurrier (South Carolina), Mack Brown (Texas) and Gary Pinkel (Missouri) as active coaches with 150 wins at BCS schools. After guiding K-State from 1989 to 2005, and again over the past two seasons, Snyder is also one of the longesttenured active coaches in the FBS. The Wildcat head coach COACH CURRENT SCHOOL RECORD ranks fourth among active coaches behind Nevada’s Chris Mack Brown Texas 221-107-1 Ault (27th), Beamer (25th) and Troy’s Larry Blakeney (21st). Frank Beamer Virginia Tech 209-97-2 Even more impressive is that Snyder is the lone BCS coach Steve Spurrier South Carolina 197-75-2 who has served at the same school for at least 19 years and Bill Snyder Kansas State 158-72-1 has never held the same position at another school. Gary Pinkel Missouri 157-90-3 Additionally, Snyder has tallied the fourth-most victories * at FBS schools only among active coaches since 1990 with 158 despite a threeyear hiatus from 2006-2008.

8 2012 COTTON BOWL

K-State’s success this season has been bouyed by the Wildcats’ ability to find ways to win the close games and finish out strong in the fourth quarter of games. In fact, the 2011 Wildcats not only have the most wins by seven points or less this season of any school in the country but their eight wins within one score are the most EVER among BCS AQ schools. Only three other programs who have won at least 10 games in a season had seven victories by a touchdown or less (2000 Washington, 1985 Penn State and 1979 Purdue). The 1979 Wake Forest team went 8-4 with seven of its victories by a touchdown or less, while its eighth victory was by eight points.

CATS HOLD CONSECUTIVE SCORING STREAK Kansas State extended one of the nation’s longest scoring streaks against Iowa State in the regular season finale as the Wildcats have now tallied points in 189 consecutive games. The 189-game stretch is the 10th-longest in the nation and the longest in the Big 12. The Wildcats have not been kept off the scoreboard since Colorado shut out K-State, 12-0, on Nov. 16, 1996. The streak includes 124 conference games, 69 true road games and 16 neutral-site contests.

DRAWING FIRST BLOOD Scoring first has been a big sign of good things to come for the Wildcats. Since 1990, K-State’s record when scoring first is very impressive as the Wildcats have gone 133-27 (.830) when drawing first blood. This season, K-State has scored the game’s first points five times, including a stretch of three games against Baylor, Missouri and Texas Tech.

HALFWAY HOME There is no better indicator of a Wildcat victory than when K-State leads or is tied at the half. Since 1990, the Cats have protected a halftime lead 97-percent of the time, going 149-5 when leading at the half. Last season, Kansas State went 5-0 when leading at the half and has either been tied or leading in seven of 10 wins this season as well.

HOME SWEET HOME Few teams in college football have taken care of their home field as well as the Wildcats since the start of the 1990 season. Over the past 20-plus years, K-State is an amazing 117-27-1 (.811) when playing at Bill Snyder Family Stadium, including a 58-24-1 (.705) mark in league games (combined Big 8/12). Since head coach Bill Snyder’s return in 2009, Kansas State is 15-4 at the stadium that now bears his name.

PLAYING KEEP AWAY Kansas State was on the positive side of the ledger in terms of time of possession in 2010, finishing third in the Big 12 and 37th nationally in that department. With another strong running game present in 2011, the Wildcats are at it again as they have held the ball for an average of 33:57 per game. That figure currently ranks first in the Big 12 and is also fourth nationally. This season, the Wildcats are 8-2 when controlling the clock and possessing the ball more than their opponent.


WILDCAT NOTEBOOK THIRD DOWN SUCCESS

WILDCATS WHEN...

K-State’s offense and defense have been especially good on third down this season as opponents are converting just 38 percent of their third downs, while the offense is converting 44 percent. A detailed account of K-State’s third down success this season can be found on page 49.

Overall ........................................................................10-2 Big 12 ............................................................................7-2 Non-conference record ..................................................3-0 Home..............................................................................6-1 Away ..............................................................................4-1 Neutral ..........................................................................0-0 Current streak ............................................................Won 3 Current home streak ..................................................Won 2 Current road streak ....................................................Won 1 Last win ..............................30-23 vs. Iowa State (12/3/11) Last loss ......................45-52 at Oklahoma State (11/5/11)

RED ZONE SUCCESS Not only has Kansas State been able to possess the ball and sustain long drives, but the offense has managed to make the most of those opportunities once it has reached the red zone. Of K-State’s 58 trips inside its opponent’s 20-yard line, the Wildcats have scored on 51 of those trips, with 41 of those being touchdowns. In the last 10 games, K-State is 45-of-50 in the red zone with 38 touchdowns. In the team’s last three wins, the Cats are 11-for-11 in red zone chances with 10 touchdowns.

GROUND GAINS K-State’s biggest improvement this season has come on the defensive side of the ball. Last season, the Wildcats gave up 445.7 total yards per game, which included 231.4 per game on the ground and 5.9 per carry. Through 12 games this season, K-State is yielding 131.5 yards per contest on the ground, which ranks third in the league, and just 3.9 yards per carry - which also ranks 39th nationally.

GOAL LINE STANDS Tre Walker’s tackle of Miami quarterback Jacory Harris on fourth and goal at the one-yard line preserved K-State’s first road win over a BCS non-conference opponent since 2001 and jump-started the Wildcats to a 7-0 start to the season and 10-2 record. In fact, the last time that a Wildcat team won a game on a goal line stand was back in 1994 in a 21-18 win at Missouri. Furthermore, K-State’s last three wins when its defense has held in a late goal-to-go situation have all been on the road (2011 at Miami, 1994 at Missouri and 1993 at Minnesota).

PICK ME When the Wildcat defense picks off two or more passes, K-State usually comes out with a victory. Over the last 15 contests that the Wildcats have recorded two or more interceptions, Kansas State is 12-3, including victories in 11 of its last 13 games (four this season). In week one against Eastern Kentucky, junior Nigel Malone picked off a pair of Colonel passes to give K-State two interceptions in each of its last three season openers. Heading into the Cotton Bowl game, the Wildcats are second in the Big 12 and fifth nationally in interceptions with 18 total - seven of which have come from Malone - and have recorded at least one pick in 11 of the first 12 games of the season.

MORE ON INTERCEPTIONS Of K-State’s 18 interceptions this season, three have come on opponents’ opening drives of games as the Cats have recorded picks against Kent State, Missouri and Texas Tech on the first possession. All three interceptions have led to touchdowns, including pick-sixes by David Garrett (vs. Kent State) and Nigel Malone (at Texas Tech). The Wildcats have a total of three pick-sixes this year, which is tied for third nationally.

KEYS TO SUCCESS A big part of K-State’s success this season can be attributed to the discipline and fundamentals that head coach Bill Snyder and his coaching staff have instilled in the program. During the Cats’ 10-2 season, K-State has managed to limit penalties (currently ranks first in the Big 12), possess the ball (currently fourth in the nation), limit turnovers (ranks first in Big 12 in turnovers lost with 13), create turnovers (second in the Big 12 in turnover margin) and make the most of their possessions (29 scoring drives of 60plus yards and lead the nation in converting TD’s on first and goal-to-go). Also, eight of K-State’s 10 wins this year have been decided by seven points or less, the most of any school in the country. In regards to turnover margin, K-State has forced 20 turnovers over the last nine games and currently is +13 in turnover margin on the season

VERY SPECIAL TEAMS The rise of K-State football over the last two decades has much to do with the emphasis on special teams. Since 1990, Kansas State is 45-15 when scoring on special teams and 17-1 when scoring on special teams and on defense, including a 15-0 mark under Bill Snyder. And, in non-offensive touchdowns, the Cats have ranked among the nation’s best over the past 12-plus seasons. Since 1999, the Wildcats rank second nationally in nonVirginia Tech 82 offensive touchdowns with 81, behind only Virginia Tech (82). K-State 81 K-State had four non-offensive touchdowns in 2010 and has Texas 80 recorded a total of five this season. Tyler Lockett became the first Miami, Fla. 68 player in school history to score on a kickoff return in consecutive

NON-OFFENSIVE TDS SINCE 1999

games following his returns at Texas Tech and at Kansas.

RECORD NUMBERS FILL THE BILL K-State saw consecutive sellouts at Bill Snyder Family Stadium to open the season, marking the first time since 1999 that over 100,000 fans have attended the first two home games of a season. Following a crowd of 50,292 against Eastern Kentucky, Wildcat fans answered with 50,483 against Kent State and then a near-capacity crowd of 49,399 against Baylor. After recording its third sellout of the season against Oklahoma, K-State ranks 29th nationally in percent capacity (98 percent) and averaged 49,030 in its seven home games this year. The 2011 average is the fourth-largest in school history following the third-highest average in Wildcat history in 2010 (49,816).

NO. 1 AGAIN Kansas State has been the Big 12 leader in all-sports graduation rate in each of the last four years, and the same holds true specifically for football as the program has also led the conference in graduation rates each of the last four seasons. Tysyn Harman has been a stalwart in the classroom, earning Academic All-District honors and Academic All-Big 12 selections each of the last three seasons. A December 2010 graduate in finance, Hartman was recently named one of 16 finalists for the Campbell Trophy, also known as the “Academic Heisman,” while he is also a First Team Academic All-American and was a candidate for the AFCA Good Works Team. Senior Jordan Voelker also earned Academic All-District honors this year, while a school-record 11 players earned First Team Academic All-Big 12 honors (16 total) this season. Juniors Collin Klein (QB) and Chris Harper (WR) also received their degrees this past month.

K-STATEHD.TV MAKES NATIONAL SPLASH Kansas State launched an exclusive digital, high-definition network August 30, 2010, known as K-StateHD.TV that provides a world-wide connection to Kansas State University and K-State Athletics and establish the university as an international leader in programming, accessibility and exposure. This milestone joint project between K-State Athletics and Kansas State University maximizes the national exposure for both the university and athletics program through live athletic events, all produced in high definition, as well as classic athletic games and/or game replays, press conferences, original programming and on-campus lectures and/or performances. For more information on the network, visit www.k-statehd.tv.

SCORING MACHINE First Team All-Big 12 performer Collin Klein has used his legs to lead K-State down the field, but he has also been able to push the Wildcats into the end zone on a consistent basis. The national leader among quarterbacks in rushing touchdowns with 26, Klein has already broken the single-season school record, a mark that stood for 42 years. Now, the powerful signal caller has his sights set on bigger accomplishments against Arkansas in the AT&T Cotton Bowl as he is one Name, School (Year) TDs rushing score away from tying the Big 12 overall and naRicky Williams, Texas (1998) 27 tional quarterback record.

IN GOOD COMPANY Quarterback Collin Klein can lay claim to a feat that has only been accomplished by former Heisman Trophy winners. The Wildcat signal caller is one of just four players from all BCS AQ schools in the BCS era to record 20 rushing touchdowns and 10 passing touchdowns in the same season. The other three were Cam Newton (Auburn, 2010), Tim Tebow (Florida, 2007) and Eric Crouch (Nebraska, 2000).

A RUNNING BACK AT QB The second-leading rusher nationally among BCS quarterbacks, Collin Klein gained 1,099 yards on the ground during the regular season to break the K-State single-season record by a QB, while he ranks fifth in Big 12 history among QBs (needs 17 yards to move into fourth). Klein, who has averaged 90.1 yards in his 14 career starts under center, has seven career 100-yard games - including five this year. Outside of the yardage, Klein has looked like a true running back on the stat sheet this year as he has attempted 20 or more rushes 10 times, including a career high 35 totes against Texas A&M, the school record by a quarterback. This season, Klein has rushed 293 times - an astonishing 64 more than the player in second - while he ranks fourth nationally heading into the bowl season.

ALSO BY AIR Collin Klein’s rushing abilities speak for themselves, but he rapidly progressed in the passing game over the final few games of the season. In the first eight games of 2011, Klein averaged 124 passing yards on 11.25 completions per game, but upped his production to 183.8 yards on 24.3 completions in games against Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Texas and Iowa State. Over a two-game stretch against Oklahoma State and Texas A&M, Klein threw for 231 yards on 22 completions and 281 yards on 17 completions, respectively. During those games, he did most of his damage during crunch time as 218 of 512 yards (42.5 percent) came in the fourth quarter or overtime.

TOTAL OFFENSE Quarterback Collin Klein has certainly been the workhorse offensively for Kansas State this season. The Loveland, Colo., product, has accounted for 2,844 of the Wildcats’ 4,121 offensive yards this season, which is roughly 69 percent. That number has received a huge boost over a three-week stretch against Oklahoma State, Texas A&M and Texas when he racked up 846 of K-State’s 1,039 yards (81.4 percent).


WILDCAT NOTEBOOK HUBERT STEPS FORWARD

WILDCAT PLAYERS IN THE NFL

Following a battle throughout the spring and fall camp, John Hubert stepped forward to take over the top spot at running back. The Waco, Texas, product is seventh in the Big 12 in rushing at 77.8 yards per game, thanks to 100-yard games against Miami (166), Missouri (126) and Iowa State (120). If Hubert can keep up with his current pace against Arkansas in the AT&T Cotton Bowl, he would reach the 1,000-yard barrier and give the Wildcats the first two 1,000-yard rushers in the same season since 2002 (Darren Sproles 1,465; Ell Roberson 1,032).

Kansas State has 16 of its former football players currently on NFL rosters. Of the 16 players, nine are on offense and seven are on defense.

HARPER REMAINS CONSISTENT After hauling in just 10 receptions in his first 10 games as a Wildcat, Chris Harper has drastically improved over the last 15 contests to become the go-to target. A transfer from Oregon that sat out the 2009 season, Harper has caught 50 passes for 692 yards and eight touchdowns over the last 15 games. The Wichita, Kan., product had accumulated only 174 yards and one score in his first 10 games. The streak by Harper includes at least two receptions in each game except for one, and he had a career-high six receptions against Baylor.

ALL-PURPOSE PLAYER Even though Tyler Lockett had a major impact on the offense during the regular season, the Tulsa, Okla., product made his biggest contributions on special teams as he was named a Walter Camp First Team All-American as a kick returner, the Wildcats’ first freshman in school history to earn first-team honors. Lockett enters the bowl season as the-nation’s leading kickoff returner with a 35.2-yard average, a mark that is also tops in school and Big 12 history. The son of former Wildcat great Kevin Lockett, Tyler became the first player in school history to return a kickoff for a touchdown in back-toback games (100 yards at Texas Tech and 97 yards at Kansas). Adding in his receiving (281) and rushing (110) yards, Lockett leads the team with 106.3 all-purpose yards per game. His average was boosted by a 315-yard output at No. 3 Oklahoma State, the fifth most in school history and the most since Brandon Banks tied the record at Oklahoma in 2009. For his efforts against the Cowboys, he was named the Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week.

OFFENSIVE LINE IS ALL-GOOD The 2011 offensive line only had two full-time starters returning heading into the season, and even then the unit took a hit when left tackle Manase Foketi went down with a season-ending injury in the second game. But, thanks to hard work, the Wildcat offensive line quickly gelled into one of the best units in the Big 12 as three of the five starters earned All-Big 12 accolades. Right tackle Clyde Aufner was named a First Team All-Big 12 performer by the league’s coaches and left tackle Zach Hanson earned second team honors. Additionally, center B.J. Finney earned Honorable Mention All-Big 12 accolades from the Associated Press and was a First Team Freshman All-American by Rivals.com. The Wildcats’ three offensive lineman named All-Big 12 were the most since 2004 squad had three members in Jeromey Clary, Jon Doty and Mike Johnson.

The lone former Wildcat to make a NFL team as a rookie in 2011 is Miami running back Daniel Thomas, who was drafted in the second round of this past year’s draft.

MALONE MAKES PLAYS Nigel Malone, a Walter Camp Second Team All-American and First Team All-Big 12 performer, has made an instant impact on defense this season with seven interceptions and 16 total passes defended. The first Wildcat to be named a semifinalist for the Jim Thorpe Award since Terence Newman in 2002, Malone leads the Big 12 and is tied for third nationally in interceptions this season, while he ranks second in school history in that department. Malone is one of four players in the country with two or more interceptions in multiple games as he picked off two passes against both Eastern Kentucky and Oklahoma.

WHAT CAN BROWN DO FOR YOU? Those around the nation were looking for Arthur Brown to play a big role this season, and the Wichita, Kan., product did just that as the former Miami transfer was named the Big 12 Defensive Newcomer of the Year and a First Team All-Big 12 performer at linebacker by both the league’s coaches and the Associated Press. A semifinalist for the Bednarik Award, Brown leads the team and is seventh in the Big 12 with 95 tackles, including a career-high 12 stops in the regular-season finale against Iowa State. With five tackles against Arkansas in the AT&T Cotton Bowl, Brown will become the first Wildcat since Brandon Archer in 2006 to break the 100-tackle barrier in a season.

DUAL THREAT A Second Team All-Big 12 honoree, senior defensive back Tysyn Hartman has been outstanding throughout his career both on the field and in the classroom. Hartman has started 44 games since 2008, and, during that span he has come away with 10 career interceptions and 251 career tackles to rank sixth and 24th in school history, respectively. However, the Wichita, Kan., product has possibly made a bigger splash on the academic side as he was a finalist for the 2011 Campbell Trophy (known as the “Academic Heisman”) and was named a First Team Academic All-American, the Wildcats’ first first-team member since 2001. Additionally, Hartman is a two-time Academic All-District selection, a four-time Academic All-Big 12 selection and has been named to the Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll every semester of is college career.

BLOCK PARTY An impact player along the defensive front, senior Raphael Guidry showed off his hidden talent this season with four blocked kicks this season, which tied the school’s single-season and career records. Guidry, who is tied for the national lead with four other players, got his hands on two field-goal attempts at Texas Tech, the most by a Wildcat under head coach Bill Snyder. He then batted away extra-point attempts against Oklahoma and Iowa State.

Following a season in which he was named a Freshman All-American, linebacker Tre Walker has taken a step forward during his sophomore season. The Olathe, Kan., product has 50 tackles, including 3.5 tackles for loss and three pass breakups. A 10-game starter, Walker had a stellar finish at Miami. During the Hurricanes’ final drive, Walker made four of KState’s last seven tackles, including the final three and the stop on Jacory Harris on fourth and goal to seal the win. For his efforts against the Canes, Walker was named the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week.

GREAT BOOKENDS Former junior-college players Meshak Williams, Jordan Voelker and Adam Davis were disruptive to opposing offenses throughout the regular season as the trio combined for 20 of the Wildcats’ 52 tackles for loss and 13 of K-State’s 19 sacks on the season. Williams led the Wildcats in both departments with 10 and seven, respectively, and he was tied for fourth in the Big 12 in sacks. Davis enters the AT&T Cotton Bowl against Arkansas on a high note following his games against Texas and Iowa State. Davis recorded a sack on the Longhorns’ final drive to help seal a win, while he set a career high with six tackles - including a sack - against the Cyclones.

FORCE UP THE MIDDLE Not to be out-done by the players on the ends, K-State’s starters in the interior of the defensive line - Ray Kibble and Vai Lutui - have been a driving force in the K-State turnaround in run defense this year. Kibble picked up First Team AllBig 12 honors from the league’s coaches, while he also received votes for the Big 12 Defensive Lineman of the Year Award. Teaming with Lutui, the duo combined for 69 tackles and seven tackles for loss during the regular season. Additionally, Raphael Guidry - K-State’s kick-blocking specialist - recorded seven of his season’s nine tackles in the final five games and recorded his second career interception on a tipped pass against Iowa State.

ALL-STAR SECONDARY Every member of K-State’s starting secondary - David Garrett, Nigel Malone, Tysyn Hartman and Ty Zimmerman - earned All-Big 12 accolades for their play in 2011. It marked the first time in school history that all four starters at defensive back earned all-conference honors, bettering the 2010 squad that placed three of its four starters on the all-conference teams. In a year that the Wildcats have recorded 18 interceptions - the most since 2003 - the four starters in the secondary combined for 14 interceptions and 14 pass breakups. The Wildcats enter the bowl season tied for fifth nationally in interceptions.

GARRETT GREAT IN COVERAGE The versatile David Garrett has gone from run-stopping one season to breaking up passes the next. After 15 tackles for loss in 2010, Garrett is now a true cornerback and has shined this season. That was evident when he intercepted the first Kent State pass attempt and returned it 45 yards for a score. It was the Cats’ first pick-six by a defensive back since Courtney Herndon had one against Nebraska in 2008. Garrett added another pick in the fourth quarter at Texas Tech, while the honorable mention All-Big 12 performer has four passes defended this year to go along with 78 tackles, which ranks second on the squad.

JUST FOR KICKS After only handling kickoff duties in 2010, junior Anthony Cantele has risen to the occasion as a full-time place kicker. The Wichita, Kan., product is 17-of-22 this season, including a 4-for-6 mark from 40 yards or greater. His 17 makes this year are tied for fifth in school history, while his 18 career made field goals rank 10th. Additionally, the Honorable Mention All-Big 12 player ranks eighth in school history in both single-game field goals (three against Baylor, Texas A&M and Iowa State), and in longest field goal (54 yards against Oklahoma).

EARLY ALL-CONFERENCE Last season, safety Ty Zimmerman made history when he became the first true freshman in school history to earn either first or second team all-conference honors, while he was the 10th Wildcat underclassman in the Big 12 era to be named all-league. The feat was quickly matched a year later as true freshman Tyler Lockett earned Second Team All-Big 12 honors as a kickoff returner and was named the Big 12 Offensive Freshman of the Name Pos. Cl.

Head Coach

BILL SNYDER

20th Season at K-State

currently ranked

11th Nationally in Wins among active FBS coaches 2011 National Coach of the Year 2011 Big 12 Coach of the Year The 2009 season saw one of the greatest legends in college football return to the sidelines in hopes of revitalizing a program that he once built, piece by piece, into a national force. And, after three seasons back in charge, Bill Snyder is well on his way to doing just that. The architect of the “greatest turnaround in the history of college football” Bill Snyder returned to lead the Kansas State football program in 2009 after 17 ultra-successful seasons as the head coach from 1989-2005. And, following a 7-5 campaign in 2010 and a berth in the inaugural Pinstripe Bowl, the Wildcats climbed to heights only previously seen under Snyder as the Wildcats went 10-2 in 2011, finished No. 8 in the final BCS standings and earned their first Cotton Bowl invitation since 2001. In 2011, Snyder's Wildcats jumped out to a 7-0 start – the best in 12 years – which included big wins at Miami, against 15th-ranked Baylor and at Texas Tech. Following a two-game skid to a pair of nationally-ranked teams, the Wildcats got back into the win column with a thrilling fourovertime victory over Texas A&M before ending the year with wins at Texas and against Iowa State. For his efforts in 2011, Snyder was named the Woody Hayes National Coach of the Year, as well as picking up national coaching honors from Sporting News, Rivals.com and CBSSports.com, and the Big 12 Coach of the Year by the AP and Big 12 Coaches. He also tutored 11 players to All-Big 12 honors, including Defensive Newcomer of the Year Arthur Brown and Offensive Freshman of the Year and Walter Camp All-American Tyler Lockett. Named the 32nd head football coach at K-State on Nov. 30, 1988, and again as the 34th on Nov. 24, 2008, Snyder has amassed a 159-81-1 (.662) record during his tenure 16 2012 COTTON BOWL

with the Wildcats, including an 89-64-1 (.581) mark in Big 8/12 games. His 159 victories are the 11th-most among active FBS coaches and are more than triple the man in second place on K-State’s all-time coaching victories list. In 2010, Snyder’s Wildcats jumped out to a 5-1 start, which included big wins over UCLA, Conference USA Champion UCF and Iowa State, behind All-Big 12 running back Daniel Thomas, who became the fastest Wildcat in school history (in terms of games) to rush for 1,000 yards. K-State would then dominate rival Kansas and closed out the home schedule with a convincing 39-14 win over Texas to become bowl-eligible. Eight Wildcats would earn All-Big 12 honors in 2010 with Thomas and William Powell, who led the nation in kick returns, garnering first team honors. In his first season back as the head man of the Wildcat program, Snyder led the Wildcats to a 6-6 record in 2009 and a second place finish in the Big 12 North. In fact, KState was just one win away from advancing to the Big 12 Championship game as the Wildcats played at Nebraska in the season finale with a championship game berth on the line. Not bad for a program that was picked by most preseason publications to finish fifth or even sixth in the 2009 Big 12 North race. K-State claimed more First Team All-Big 12 selections on offense than any other school with four last season. Big 12 Newcomer of the Year Daniel Thomas led the league in rushing in his first year at the position, while Nick Stringer, Jeron Mastrud and Brandon Banks also garnered first team All-Big 12 accolades. But to fully understand the turnaround ushered in by Snyder at Kansas State one must only consider that the

COACHING STAFF Wildcats were in the midst of an 0-26-1 run when he was hired. It also took K-State 51 seasons (1938-1988) to total just 130 wins, while the 12 head coaches prior to Snyder's arrival in Manhattan combined to win just 116 games from 1945-1988. Snyder led Kansas State to 11 straight bowl berths between the 1993 and 2003 seasons, making K-State one of only seven programs in the nation to appear in the postseason every year during that stretch. During that span, Snyder’s Wildcats won nearly 80 percent of their games, chalking up 109 victories - a staggering average of nearly 10 wins per season - and making Kansas State the nation’s second-winningest program over that period. And Snyder continued to break new ground with the Wildcats. Kansas State’s 35-7 victory over top-ranked Oklahoma in the 2003 Big 12 Championship game lifted K-State to its first conference championship since Pappy Waldorf’s 1934 squad and secured the school’s first BCS bowl berth in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. With an 11-4 record in 2003, K-State was the only team in the country to win 11 games in six of the previous seven years and just the second program in the history of college football to win 11 games six times in a seven-year stretch. Snyder’s unprecedented success in 19 years at Kansas State has not gone unnoticed. He was named the National Coach of the Year on three occasions (1991, 1994 and 1998). He has been a finalist for the prestigious Bear Bryant/FWAA National Coach of the Year Award in 1993 and 1995 before winning in 1998; a finalist for the Football News National Coach of the Year Award in 1995 and 1998; and a finalist for the Kodak/AFCA National Coach of the Year Award in 1993 and 1998. In 1993, he joined legendary Nebraska head coach Bob Devaney as the only head coaches in Big Eight history to be named Associated Press Big Eight Coach of the Year three times in a four-year period (1990, 1991 and 1993). The Houston Chronicle named him the 1996 Big 12 Coach of the Year, while he earned 1997 and 1998 Big 12 Coach of the Year honors from the Kansas City Star. Snyder also was the 1998 Big 12 Coach of the Year by the AP and by a vote of league coaches before earning the league coaches’ support again in 2002. The 2003 season brought more honors, including Big 12 Coach of the Year accolades from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and ESPN.com. Since the inception of the Big 12 Conference, Snyder’s Wildcats truly became a dominant force in the league, ranking in the top three in overall Big 12 wins during his first tenure. Kansas State also won more Big 12 road games than any team in the league and advanced to the championship game three times. Those facts alone demonstrate the continuing evolution of a power in the Big 12 Conference and with it the recognition that Snyder is truly one of the finest coaches in college football today. The list of accomplishments Snyder has amassed in his 19 years is as endless as the time most people thought it would take for the Wildcats to be a consistent threat in the Big Eight, and now, Big 12 Conference. Like so many in recent history, the 2003 campaign was a dramatically successful one for K-State, which ended the regular season with seven straight wins, a fourth Big 12 North Division title, its first Big 12 Championship and another top-20 finish. But the 2003 season was not without its bumps in the road as the Wildcats overcame their share of adversity to produce perhaps the greatest season in school history. Ranked as high as No. 6 nationally in the early going, a key injury to quarterback Ell Roberson precipitated a three-game slide that threatened to wipe out a promising season. The three losses all but erased K-State from the national consciousness, as the Wildcats slipped out of the both polls for the first time since the second game of the 2002 season. But Snyder was not about to allow the year to spiral out of control. He constantly reminded his players that they still controlled their own destiny, and if they could just go 1-0 each week the season would take care of itself and the team would ultimately achieve its goals. And like everything Snyder seems to touch, this strategy too worked, as the Wildcats rode their 1-0 mantra week after week all the way to a berth in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. Along the way, five different Wildcats were lauded for their efforts with All-America honors, including K-State’s first Associated Press first team All-American running back, Darren Sproles, who finished fifth in voting for the Heisman Trophy, was the Doak Walker Award runner-up and finished third on the AP’s Player of the Year ballot. But Sproles was the lone player with star power that returned for the 2004 campaign. And though the little tank produced yet another record-breaking season capped by his third-straight selection to an All-Big 12 team, the lack of experience was one reason K-State struggled through a 4-7 rebuilding campaign. The 2002 season was one of the best in Kansas State history, witnessed by the Wildcats’ five-victory turnaround from the previous year’s 6-6 team to a win in the Pacific Life Holiday Bowl and an 11-2 overall record. In addition, the 2002 Wildcats set or tied 45 school records, including tying the mark for wins in a season. Snyder’s Wildcats finished the season with six consecutive victories, including the biggest wins in the history of the series in each of a three-week span against Kansas, Iowa State and Nebraska. The Wildcats’ dominant play down the stretch of the 2002 season earned Snyder the recognition of his peers as the Big 12 Conference Coach of the Year. In 2001, Snyder directed one of the best in-season turnarounds in school history. Despite losing four straight in the middle of the year and facing the fourth-toughest schedule in the nation, the Wildcats recovered to win four of their last five games to end the regular season with a 6-5 record and a berth in the Insight.com Bowl. Despite the record, the quality of players produced by the Snyder-led coaching staff continued to attract national attention from those who best know the game. Six Kansas State players were selected in the 2002 NFL Draft, the most of any team in the Big 12 Conference, with only six schools in the country having more players picked in the draft. The Wildcats started the 2000 season ranked in the Top 10 for just the second time in school history and made a fourweek run into the Top 5 that saw K-State climb as high as No. 2 in the nation. K-State won the Big 12 North Division for the second time in three years and earned at least a share of the title for the third consecutive season. K-State had six players named first team All-Big 12, and PK Jamie Rheem, DT Mario Fatafehi and WR Quincy Morgan were All-Americans. The 1999 season saw the Wildcats climb from No. 20 in the preseason poll to finish at No. 6, after starting the season with nine straight victories, and win 11 games for the third straight year. K-State tied Nebraska for the Wildcats’ second consecutive Big 12 North Division Championship. All this came in what many thought would be a rebuilding season. K-State led the conference in first team picks with seven.

COACHING STAFF

In 1998, Snyder led K-State to its second straight 11-win season and a No. 4 ranking in the final regular season polls. In November, K-State occupied a No. 1 ranking in a national poll for the first time in school history. The Wildcats won the Big 12 Conference North Division and advanced to a bowl game for the sixth year in a row. K-State won its first 11 games of the season and ran its winning streak to a school-record 20 games before falling to Texas A&M in the Big 12 Championship game. Michael Bishop became the first Wildcat to be a finalist for the Heisman Trophy, and a total of six K-Staters earned All-America honors. Snyder earned National Coach of the Year honors from the Walter Camp Foundation, the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Foundation, the Associated Press, the Paul "Bear" Bryant Award and the Schutt Sports Group. In 1997, Snyder led the Wildcats to their first 11-win season in school history, a No. 7 final ranking and the first 10-win regular season since 1910. It was just the third 10-win season in 102 years of K-State football. Kansas State won a school-record seven conference games, finishing second in the North to undefeated and national champion Nebraska. The Wildcats defeated South Division champion Texas A&M, 36-17. The season ended with a 35-18 win over Big East Conference champion Syracuse in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, with an estimated 50,000 K-State fans attending K-State’s first-ever Alliance Bowl. The 1996 season saw K-State finish with a 9-3 record, while more than 45,000 Wildcat fans painted Dallas purple for the Southwestern Bell Cotton Bowl, K-State’s first-ever New Year’s Day Bowl. Despite a 19-15 loss to No. 5 BYU, the support and respect for the K-State program grew to unprecedented heights.

In 1995, Snyder guided K-State to a 10-2 record, including a 5-2 Big Eight mark to tie for second place behind national champion Nebraska. Following a 54-21 blitzing of WAC champion Colorado State in the 1995 Holiday Bowl, the Wildcats finished the season ranked sixth in the USA Today/CNN coaches poll and seventh in the Associated Press poll. Both rankings were the highest ever attained by a Kansas State football team to that point. In 1995, the Wildcats finished tied for second in the Big Eight and their 5-2 league mark gave K-State two consecutive 5-2 Big Eight seasons. In the last three years of the Big Eight, the Wildcats defeated or tied every team in the league except Nebraska. Since the inception of the Big 12 in 1996, K-State is 53-27 in league games under Snyder (10 seasons). In 1993, Snyder guided K-State to its first bowl win in school history and, in 1994, the Wildcats cracked the Top 10 for the first time in school history. In 1998, the K-State achieved a No. 1 national ranking in one of the major polls for the first time in the program’s history. Individually, Snyder produced 45 different All-Americans during his 17 years as head coach, including nine consensus first-team All-Americans: in 1992 (P Sean Snyder), 1993 (FS Jaime Mendez), 1995 (CB Chris Canty), 1996 (Canty), 1997 (PK Martin Gramatica), 1998 (PR David Allen), 1999 (LB Mark Simoneau) and 2002 (CB Terence Newman). Newman became the third Wildcat to win a national award when he was voted the 2002 Thorpe Award, given to the top collegiate defensive back. Gramatica was the 1997 Lou Groza Award winner, the first major award winner in Kansas State history. Quarterback Michael Bishop became the first K-State player to be named a finalist for the Heisman Trophy (finishing as runner-up) while winning the Davey O’Brien Award. The foundation for K-State’s turnaround was laid in 1989 during Snyder’s first season in Manhattan. Although the season yielded just a 1-10 record, it became evident to everyone involved in the program that something special was happening. Most important, Snyder instilled a winning attitude and a healthy dose of self-respect and enthusiasm to a program that had been given up for dead. In 1990, K-State was one of just four teams in the country to improve its record by four games with a 5-6 mark, including its first Big Eight Conference wins in four seasons with victories over Oklahoma State and Iowa State. Snyder again beat those two schools in 1991, while adding Kansas and Missouri to the list of his Big Eight victims to finish at 7-4 for KState’s first winning season since the Independence Bowl season of 1982. Heavy graduation losses on the offensive side of the ball resulted in a 5-6 mark in 1992, but the Cats were still able to hang their hats on their first perfect home season since 1934. Of course, it should come as no surprise that Snyder would be this kind of architect for a building program. At Iowa, he played a key role in the renaissance of a Hawkeye program that went from 17 consecutive losing seasons to eight straight bowls. Snyder was the mind behind Iowa’s potent offensive attack. The Hawkeye offense ranked first in passing efficiency and third in passing yardage nationally in Snyder’s last five years of direction. In his final Iowa season, the Peach Bowl team led the Big Ten, and ranked seventh nationally, with 277 passing yards per game. That team was second in the Big Ten with 416 yards of offense per game. Snyder also served as quarterback coach at Iowa and helped develop some of the best quarterbacks in NCAA history, including NFL players Chuck Long (second in Heisman voting), Mark Vlasic and Chuck Hartlieb, who wrapped up his career as the first Hawkeye to throw for 3,000 yards in back-to-back seasons. Snyder began his full-time coaching career in 1964 as an assistant at Indio High School in California. In 1966 he served as a graduate assistant at USC under John McKay before returning to become head coach at Indio High School in 1967. He accepted the same position at Santa Ana Foothill High School in 1969, where he stayed until 1973. In 1974, Snyder became the offensive coordinator on the football staff and head swimming coach at Austin College in Sherman, Texas. He joined the University of North Texas staff in 1976 and helped author an impressive turnaround with a three-year record of 26-7. He left UNT for Iowa in 1979. During his three-year hiatus, Snyder remained involved with the university and is currently a member of the Missouri and Kansas Halls of Fame, the K-State and Austin College Athletics Halls of Fame while also being inducted into the Holiday Bowl Hall of Fame. The long-time mentor also remained active in the community as he currently is the Chairman of the Kansas Mentors Council and the Kansas Leadership Council, a member of the Board of Directors for Kansas Leadership Center, the Board of Trustees for the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame, the KSU Leadership Studies Advancement Council, the Terry C. Johnson Cancer Research Center Advisory Council, the Manhattan Community Foundation Board of Trustees, the KSU Foundation Board of Trustees and is the Honorary Co-Chairman of the Kansas Masonic Partnership for Life. Snyder, 71, received his B.A. from William Jewell in 1963. He earned his M.A. from Eastern New Mexico in 1965. As a player, he was a three-year letterwinner as a defensive back at William Jewell. Snyder and his wife, Sharon, have two sons (Sean and Ross) and three daughters (Shannon, Meredith and Whitney). They also have eight grandchildren, Sydney, Katherine, Tate, Matthew, Alexis, Gavin, Kadin and Tylin, and one great-grandson, D.J.

Wide receiver Chris Harper hauled in this 33-yard touchdown pass from Collin Klein with 1:39 remaining in the fourth quarter to earn a come-from-behind 10-7 victory over Eastern Kentucky.

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Collin Klein connected with Chris Harper on a 33-yard touchdown pass with 1:39 left, and Kansas State escaped with a 10-7 victory over Eastern Kentucky on Saturday night to give longtime coach Bill Snyder his 150th win. K-State fumbled five times - losing four of them and struggled to get anything going against its opponent from the Football Championship Subdivision. The plucky Colonels, picked to finish third in the Ohio Valley Conference, took a 7-0 lead with 4:26 remaining in the third quarter when freshman quarterback Jared McClain plunged in from a yard out. The TD was set up when Kansas State running back Bryce Brown fumbled the ball away. Anthony Cantele, who earlier missed a 37-yard field goal try, drew Kansas State within 7-3 when he hit from 36 yards out with 11:36 left in the game. The Kansas State defense managed to stop Eastern Kentucky on its ensuing possession, giving Klein and the offense the ball at its 14. The junior quarterback hit Harper for 10 yards, mixed in a couple of runs, connected with Harper again on an 8-yard completion, and converted a third-and-3 situation when he scrambled for four yards in front of the Wildcats' bench. Two plays later, Klein saw Harper coming open on a skinny post route and hit him in stride as the crowd of 50,292 erupted for the first time all night. The touchdown gave the Wildcats their first lead of the game, and allowed them to win their 22nd consecutive home opener. Things started out poorly for Kansas State and didn't get a whole lot better. Klein was forced to call timeout on third-and-9 on the Wildcats’ opening possession, and then proceeded to fumble the snap and give the Colonels the ball. The defense stiffened, though, and Eastern Kentucky’s Luke Pray eventually missed a 42-yard field goal attempt.

The Wildcats went three-and-out on their next possession, a promising seven-play drive stalled at the Colonels 22, Ty Zimmerman fumbled a punt a few moments later, and the defense allowed Eastern Kentucky to march inside the Kansas State 10 before Nigel Malone intercepted McClain's pass. Klein was picked off by Brooklyn Fox on a jump ball to end one drive, and another drive halted after Klein failed to notice the blitz and was sacked for a 13-yard loss. The two teams went into the locker room with zeros on the scoreboard. It remained that way most of the second half and at one point the Wildcats appeared like they might not score in a game for the first time since 1996. But the Wildcats managed to find just enough offense to hand Eastern Kentucky its 19th consecutive non-conference road loss. The Colonels haven’t beaten an FBS school since knocking off Louisville in 1985.

Running back John Hubert rushed for 91 yards on 17 carries in his first career start.

Defensive back David Garrett intercepted this pass in the first quarter and returned it for a 45 touchdown. It was the first interception returned for a touchdown by K-State since 2009. The Wildcats won 37-0, their first shutout since 2006

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Kansas State didn’t need any late-game heroics this time. David Garrett returned an interception 45 yards for a first-quarter touchdown, Collin Klein dazzled with his legs and the Wildcats beat penalty-prone Kent State 37-0 on Saturday night for their first shutout in more than five years. The Wildcats scored on five of six first-half drives to build a 34-0 lead, and then coasted through an uneventful second half. Klein finished with 139 yards rushing and 74 yards passing, nearly becoming the first Kansas State quarterback since Allen Webb in 2004 to eclipse 100 yards in each category. He had a hand in all three touchdowns scored by the offense, two on the ground and one through the air. Kansas State (2-0) didn’t give him much help John Hubert and Robert Rose each had 29 yards rushing - but the defense more than made up for the paltry offense. The Wildcats held the second-worst offense in the Football Bowl Subdivision to 12 first downs and 199 yards. Trayion Durham had 72 yards rushing for Kent State (0-3), while Spencer Keith was 11 of 23 for 81 yards with a pair of interceptions The Golden Flashes didn’t do much to help themselves, committing 11 penalties for 136 yards. That included eight personal fouls, one of which spoiled a first-and-goal situation at the K-State 3 in the fourth quarter. The Wildcats managed to keep the Golden Flashes out of the end zone to secure their first shutout since beating FAU 45-0 on Sept. 9, 2006 Garrett’s interception set the tone for the game The senior cornerback waited until Keith finally unloaded a looping pass toward Eric Adeyemi near the sideline. Garrett deftly stepped in its path and corralled the ball near his shoestrings, and took off untouched 45 yards down the sideline to give Kansas State a 7-0 lead

It was the first interception returned for a touchdown by Kansas State since Jeffrey Fitzgerald did it against Texas Tech on Oct. 10, 2009 Backed up to his 3 after a false start, Klein picked his way through the line for a 46-yard gain on first down, and Kansas State methodically marched the rest of the way. Kent State helped with a pair of personal fouls, and Klein capped the 95-yard drive with a 5-yard scoring run It was the first of three straight drives that K-State turned into touchdowns The Wildcats went 98 yards the next time they had the ball, converting four third downs along the way, the final one when Klein hit Sheldon Smith sliding just across the goal line for a 3-yard TD toss that made the score 21-0. Unable to get anything going offensively, Kent State resorted to trying a fake punt after its next drive stalled, but even that failed. The turnover gave Kansas State the ball at the Golden Flashes’ 48, and Klein completed three straight passes before scampering in from 4 yards out for another score.

Quarterback Collin Klein rushed for 139 yards, two shy of his career high. 13 BOWLS UNDER BILL SNYDER 55

AP Sophomore linebacker Tre Walker tackled Miami quarterback Jacory Harris at the one-yard line on fourth down with 49 seconds remaining in the game to seal a 28-24 K-State victory. Walker went on to earn Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week honors.

MIAMI, Fla. - Kansas State stopped Miami quarterback Jacory Harris’ fourth-down run at the goal line with 49 seconds left, capping a brilliant late stand that sealed the Wildcats’ 28-24 win over the Hurricanes on Saturday. Sophomore running back John Hubert ran for a career-high 166 yards and the go-ahead touchdown for the Wildcats, who moved to 3-0 on the year for the second consecutive season. Fellow junior quarterback Collin Klein was equally impressive through the air as on the ground, completing 12-of-18 passes with two touchdowns to go with 96 yards rushing and another score. Harris threw for 272 yards and two touchdowns for Miami (1-2), which got 106 yards and a touchdown from Lamar Miller. Miami had first-and-goal at the Kansas State 2 with 1:52 left, but a first-down pass fell incomplete, two Mike James runs were stopped and then Harris’ knee was deemed down by replay officials after the on-field call was that he scored. It was the 145th time in the last 150 games where K-State won when leading at halftime, and the Wildcats earned this one. Miller’s 59-yard touchdown run with 2:52 left in the third quarter got Miami within 21-17, and Harris found Travis Benjamin with a 34-yard scoring pass 43 seconds into the fourth quarter to give Miami a threepoint lead. A short-lived lead, at that. Bolstered by a 47-yard run by Hubert on third-and1 - Miami was in something akin to goal-line defense, with just about everyone on the line of scrimmage 70 yards from its own end zone - K-State went 80 yards on eight plays. Hubert’s burst from 2 yards out capped the drive, putting Miami in need of late heroics. Harris almost delivered. Buoyed along by 33-yard pass to Chase Ford, and

a pass interference call against defensive back Nigel Malone in the end zone, the Hurricanes were 2 yards away from the win with four plays to get there. They wound up a few inches short. Harris completed 21 of 31 passes, and Benjamin caught six balls for 91 yards to lead Miami. Klein set the tone on the first possession, leading K-State 63 yards on 11 plays and going in from 2 yards out to give the Wildcats a 7-3 lead with 5:57 left in the first quarter. He was a perfect 6-for-6 passing for 80 yards in the first quarter—against a Miami defense that in four quarters against Ohio State last week allowed four completed passes for 35 yards. Klein connected with freshman wide receiver Tyler Lockett from 20 yards out with 13:28 left in the half, and the Wildcats were up 14-3. Here’s how good Klein was: When K-State seemed on the brink of trouble, his feet were more than enough to keep the Wildcats afloat.

This two-yard touchdown run by John Hubert put the Cats up 28-24. Hubert finished with a career high 166 yards.

Arthur Brown celebrates with his teammates after an interception that led to the game-winning field goal. It was the first interception allowed this year by Baylor’s Robert Griffin III. For his efforts, Brown was named the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week.

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Robert Griffin III threw his first interception of the year at exactly the wrong moment. Arthur Brown picked off Baylor’s star quarterback in the closing minutes Saturday, setting up a 31-yard field goal by Anthony Cantele that sent unbeaten Kansas State to a 36-35 upset over the No. 15 Bears. Collin Klein threw for 146 yards and two touchdowns and added 113 yards and another score for the Wildcats (4-0), who won their third straight Big 12 opener - this one in dramatic fashion K-State trailed 35-26 midway through the fourth quarter when Klein engineered a 13-play, 70-yard drive that he capped with a short touchdown plunge. Still, Baylor (3-1) took over needing only a couple first downs to wrap up its first 4-0 start since 1991. Instead, Griffin missed Brown sliding over across the middle and Kansas State’s defensive captain hauled in the throw after a slight, heart-stopping bobble. It was the first pick thrown by Griffin all season. Cantele, who missed earlier in the game from 42 yards, hit the go-ahead field goal with 3:10 left to set off a raucous celebration at Snyder Family Stadium. The Bears still had time, especially given their quick-strike ability. But Brown sacked Griffin on first down moments later, and after two plays covered just 11 yards, Griffin’s fourth-down pass intended for Kendall Wright fell incomplete. The ending spoiled another virtuoso performance for Griffin. He came into the game having thrown more touchdown passes than incompletions, and it remained that way until late in the fourth quarter. Griffin finished 23 of 31 for 346 yards and five touchdowns - and one big interception. Most of Griffin’s offense was directed at Wright, who caught nine passes for a school-record 201 yards and three TDs. None of the Bears’ five scoring drives took more

than 2 minutes, 36 seconds, even though all of them covered at least 48 yards. That included a two-play, 75-yard drive that took all of 20 seconds late in the first half that gave them a 21-19 lead at the break. K-State pulled ahead early in the third, thanks to Klein’s 63-yard run and Angelo Pease’s 12-yard TD scamper, but the Bears quickly found an answer. Griffin connected with Wright, who laid out in the end zone to make a diving over-the-shoulder grab as he slid out of bounds for a 34-yard touchdown catch. The Wildcats put together another promising drive, but Klein was picked off by Baylor safety Sam Holl at the Bears’ 33. Griffin immediately hit Wright for 23 yards, and seven plays later, the pair connected again for a dazzling 35-yard touchdown reception. It capped an eight-play, 79-yard drive that took just 2:36 off the clock and pushed Baylor ahead 35-26. Too much time was left, as it turned out. Behind another gutsy performance by Klein, the Cats marched downfield for a touchdown to get within 35-33, and the defense - which stopped Miami four times at the goal line in a 28-24 win a week ago - once again made the biggest plays of the game when they mattered most.

Running back Angelo Pease ran for 33 yards, including a 12yard touchdown, the first of his career. 13 BOWLS UNDER BILL SNYDER 57

MANHATTAN, Kan. - Kansas State finally learned what it's like to play from ahead. It’s not any easier. Collin Klein had three touchdowns rushing for the No. 20 Wildcats, who nearly blew a big second-half lead against Missouri before holding on for a 24-17 victory and their first 5-0 start since 2000. Klein finished with 157 yards of total offense and John Hubert added 126 yards on the ground for the Cats, who had lost the last five matchups against MU. James Franklin was 19 of 35 for 214 yards passing for the Tigers (2-3), who came into the game averaging more than 500 yards of total offense. They only managed 326 against K-State, most of that coming on a pair of long TD drives in the fourth quarter. The first was 79-yard drive that Henry Josey finished with a 2-yard run to get MU within 24-10. KState promptly went three-and-out, and Franklin led Missouri on a 74-yard drive that he finished off with a plunge from a yard out with 5:02 left in the game. Tight end Michael Egnew fumbled after a catch on the drive, but a video review gave the ball back to Missouri. It was one of four calls by the officiating crew that were overturned. Missouri never got another chance with the ball. Playing from the lead was something new for the Wildcats. Klein bailed them out with a long touchdown pass in the closing minutes against Eastern Kentucky, the defense delivered a goal line stand to beat Miami, and last week Kansas State scored 10 unanswered points in the final 5 1/2 minutes to stun then-No. 15 Baylor. Kansas State’s defense set the tone on the first offensive play against Missouri. Franklin dropped back to pass, looked over the middle and threw right to Wildcat defensive back Ty Zimmerman, who had deftly stepped in front of the intended receiver. The interception ended a stretch of

108 consecutive passes without throwing a pick for the sophomore quarterback. It took K-State six plays to punch it in. Franklin was sacked for a 13-yard loss on MU’s ensuing possession, and K-State went 51 yards in 12 plays before Anthony Cantele’s FG made it 10-0. By the time the first quarter drew to a close, the Tigers had exactly zero yards of total offense - 20 yards through the air and minus-20 on the ground. Henry Josey finally got things rolling for Missouri in the second quarter, using his quick feet to spring for a couple of long runs. But a false start inside the 10yard line on second down pushed the Tigers back and they had to settle for Grant Ressel’s 32-yard field goal. Ressel had a chance to get Missouri within 10-6 at the break, but he pushed a 43-yard attempt wide right on the final play of the half as rain started to fall. The Wildcats’ only big mistake all game happened early in the third quarter, when Klein was picked off by Kip Edwards. But their defense held and Ressel’s 36-yard field goal attempt was wide left.

Ty Zimmerman picked off Missouri on the first play from scrimmage. It was his fourth career intercention.

Freshman Tyler Lockett returned a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter. The returned tied for the longest kickoff return in school history and the longest overall play in school history.

LUBBOCK, Texas - No. 17 Kansas State got production from all aspects of its team, including a four touchdown effort by junior quarterback Collin Klein, to earn its first win at Texas Tech since 1997 with a 41-34 victory on Saturday night before 49,744 fans at Jones AT&T Stadium. With the victory, the Wildcats moved to 6-0 for the fifth time under head coach Bill Snyder and for the first time since 2000. The squad is now bowl eligible for the 14th time under Snyder, including consecutive years for the first time since 2002 and 2003. In addition, the team is unbeaten after three Big 12 games for the first time since 1999. Klein ran for 110 yards on 23 carries, scoring on three short runs and hitting Chris Harper for a 3-yard TD pass on the Wildcats’ first drive of the third quarter. He was 12-of-18 through the air for 146 yards. Running back John Hubert added 76 yards on the ground on 19 carries. Freshman Tyler Lockett returned a kickoff 100 yards early in the second quarter for K-State. It tied for the longest return in school history, matching William Powell’s 100-yard return against Baylor on Oct. 23, 2010. Overall, it was the 20th kickoff return for a touchdown and the eighth since 2008. After allowing 28 Texas Tech points in the first half, the K-State defense was stellar after halftime, holding the high-octane Red Raiders to just two field goals in the second half. Texas Tech quarterback Seth Doege had 461 yards and a touchdown on 43-of-63 passing, but had three of his four turnovers in consecutive possessions in the fourth quarter. He also ran for a score. He had just one interception coming into the game. After Texas Tech’s field goal late in the game to pull within 41-34, the Red Raiders recovered an onside kick when Tremain Swindall fell on the ball at their own 47. But Doege and the offense seemed to rush

and failed to get a first down after running four plays. The Wildcats, who appeared flat in the first half, came out with more energy after halftime. On their first possession Klein put together the team’s longest drive of the game, capping it with a fade to the corner of the end zone to Harper to lead 28-27. The touchdown pass was set up after Klein scrambled out of the pocket for a 25-yard gain to the 3. Kansas State, which came into the game leading the nation in time of possession, held the ball for 33:33, while Tech had it for 26:27. K-State stayed close in the first half, all due to the play of its defense and special teams. The offense mustered just 94 yards, less than half of those on the ground. Texas Tech’s defense was tough against the run, allowing the 26th-ranked rushing offense just 45 yards on 18 carries before the half. After Lockett's kick return score in the second quarter, kicker Anthony Cantele missed the extra point to cut the deficit to 14-13. Lockett took the ball straight up the middle and into a pile of Red Raiders at about the 50. Suddenly, though, he was out front of the pile and outraced them all to the corner of the end zone.

Quarterback Collin Klein became the third quarterback in school history to rush for 1,000 yards in a career. 13 BOWLS UNDER BILL SNYDER 59

Quarterback Collin Klein rushed for a career high four touchdown, while he passed for a career best 195 yards and one score. His four rushing touchdowns tied for second in school history.

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - The Sunflower Showdown always brings out the best in Bill Snyder. Now, the wily old coach can turn his attention to Oklahoma. Collin Klein threw for a career-high 195 yards and accounted for five touchdowns, freshman Tyler Lockett returned a kickoff for a score and caught a touchdown pass for No. 12 Kansas State. The Wildcats (7-0, 4-0 Big 12) are riding their best start since 1999, when they won their first nine games. Jordan Webb threw for 169 yards and a touchdown for Kansas (2-5, 0-4), which has dropped five straight, including a 47-17 defeat to the Sooners last week. Snyder improved to 16-4 in his career against KU, including a 59-7 blowout last year. The stretch of I70 dominance includes 11 straight wins during the 1990s and early 2000s, when Snyder was annually fielding one of the best teams in college football. The Wildcats are headed in that direction again. Behind the solid decision-making of Klein, a vastly improved defense and the guidance of their 72-yearold coach, Kansas State has already matched its win total from all of last season. Klein finished with 92 yards and four TDs rushing on Saturday, and Lockett-- the son of former K-State great Kevin Lockett and the nephew of Aaron Lockett- had five catches for 110 yards. Running back John Hubert added 92 yards and another score. The Jayhawks, meanwhile, caused more trouble for themselves than they did their rival. Kansas was penalized nine times for 105 yards, and two fumbles early in the second half resulting in touchdowns that effectively put away the game. Kansas State jumped out to a 21-0 lead early in the second quarter, at which point the Jayhawks had more penalty yards (41) than net offense (23). They finally mounted a scoring drive that James Sims capped with

a short touchdown run, but Klein answered with his third TD run for a 28-7 lead. The Jayhawks looked as though they’d have some momentum at halftime when they drove 76 yards in less than 2 minutes, and Webb hit D.J. Beshears from 13 yards out for a score. But the Wildcats snatched the momentum back when Klein hit Lockett for 48 yards down the middle of the field to set up a field goal with no time left and a 31-14 lead at the break. That was the start of a disastrous stretch for KU. Lockett took the opening kickoff of the second half 97 yards for a score, his second kick return TD in as many weeks. The Jayhawks were whistled for three separate penalties on the ensuing kickoff, backing them up to their 8, and Tony Pierson promptly fumbled on the first play from scrimmage. Klein scored two plays later for a 45-14 lead. On the Jayhawks’ next drive, Webb fumbled near midfield, and it took the Wildcats only six more plays before Klein hit Lockett for a 19-yard touchdown pass and a 52-14 lead.

Tyler Lockett accounted for 251 all-purpose yards, thanks to a 97-yard kickoff return touchdown and 110 receiving yards.

Junior defensive back Nigel Malone intercepted a pair of passes, including this one he returned for 22 yards. He carded his fifth and sixth interceptions of the season to tie for third in school history.

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Landry Jones and Ryan Broyles helped No. 9 Oklahoma get back on track and spoil eighth-ranked Kansas State’s dream season. Jones threw for a school-record 505 yards and five touchdowns, his All-American wide receiver caught 14 passes for 171 yards and a score, and the Sooners bounced back from a stunning defeat to beat the previously unbeaten Wildcats 58-17 Saturday. Kenny Stills added four catches for 101 yards, Roy Finch finished with 73 yards rushing and another 69 through the air, and the Sooners’ potent, fast-paced attack managed 690 yards of total offense against the league’s top-ranked defense. Jones’ passing total shattered the previous record of 468 yards he shared with Sam Bradford, while Broyles moved into first place on the Big 12’s career list with 4,499 yards receiving. Collin Klein was sacked seven times, the Wildcats were penalized an uncharacteristic five times, normally reliable kicker Anthony Cantele missed a chipshot field goal and a defense that had been assignment sound all season crumbled against Oklahoma’s onslaught. Kansas State led 17-14 midway through the second quarter, but the Sooners scored late in the half, and John Hubert’s fumble with 19 seconds remaining allowed Michael Hunnicutt to kick a 53-yard field goal on the final play for a 23-17 halftime advantage. It was the start of 44 straight points scored by the Sooners. Broyles hauled in a 29-yard touchdown catch early in the third quarter, tight-rope walking down the sideline for the final 10 yards. Moments later, Jones hit Jaz Reynolds for the second of his two touchdown catches to give Oklahoma a 37-17 lead. Finch added a 31-yard touchdown run later in the third quarter and the rout was on. By the time Trey Millard slipped through the Kansas

State defensive front and outran the secondary to the endzone for a 61-yard touchdown run with 11 minutes left in the game, a crowd of 51,004 that was in such a festive mood early in the afternoon had started for the doors. Klein finished with 92 yards and two TDs rushing for Kansas State, but he was just 8 of 16 for 58 yards through the air. Hubert added 71 yards rushing.

Place kicker Anthony Cantele hit a 54-yard field goal. It was the longest by a Wildcat since 2005. 13 BOWLS UNDER BILL SNYDER 61

AP Collin Klein rushed for a career high 144 yards and three touchdowns, while he also topped his career high in passing yards with 231 and another score against the third-ranked Cowboys.

STILLWATER, Okla. - No. 17 Kansas State and No. 3 Oklahoma State combined 32 points in the fourth quarter, including running back Joseph Randle’s 23yard touchdown run with 2:16 remaining that proved to be the difference for the unbeaten Cowboys in a 5245 victory at Boone Pickens Stadium. The Wildcats (7-2, 3-2 Big 12) had one final chance to force overtime, but quarterback Collin Klein’s pass on third and goal from the OSU 5 fell incomplete as time expired. Klein and company took over at its own 29-yard-line with 2:16 remaining and converted on two third downs and one on fourth down before falling short off the goal line at the 5. Klein was a threat all-around for K-State, as he combined for 375 yards and four touchdowns. He set career-highs in three categories threw the air, including completions (22), attempts (38) and yards (231). He also added 144 yards on the ground on 29 carries with three scores. He now has 1,330 career rushing yards to rank 16th in school history and second among quarterbacks. His 19 rushing touchdowns this season is tied for the second-most in school history Freshman Tyler Lockett totaled 315 all-purpose yards, including 193 kickoff returns yards. He had 84 yards on three rushes and three catches for 32 yards and a touchdown on the game. The 315 yards ranks fifth in school history and is the most since Brandon Banks tied the school record with 351 against Oklahoma in 2009 Klein’s counterpart - OSU’s Brandon Weeden - was just as impressive, throwing for a school-record 502 yards on 36-of-46 passing with four touchdowns to give the Cowboys (9-0, 6-0 Big 12) their best start in school history. All-American wide receiver Justin Blackmon had 13 catches for 205 yards and two scores, while fellow wideout Tracy Moore added nine receptions for 146 yards and a touchdown. Randle rushed for 73 yards and a pair of scores.

Blackmon atoned for his two-fumble game with a 54-yard touchdown catch with 4:47 remaining that pulled the Cowboys out of a 38-37 deficit. He also caught the 2-point conversion for a 45-38 lead K-State responded right back with Lockett’s 80yard kickoff return and three straight runs by Klein, who barged in from 12 yards out to tie it up with 3:18 remaining It took Oklahoma State’s quick-strike offense just four plays and 62 seconds to respond again. Weeden found Isaiah Anderson for a 33-yard gain, and Randle ran through a big hole on third-and-1 before dodging safety Ty Zimmerman to waltz in for the game-winner Klein drove the Wildcats down for a chance to tie— or perhaps go for the win with a 2-point conversion— by converting a fourth-and-4 with a quarterback keeper and then connecting with Harper for 22 yards to set up first-and-goal at the 5-yard line With no time to rely on his potent running game, coach Bill Snyder called three straight passing plays but none got the job done.

Tyler Lockett recorded 315 all-purpose yards at No. 3 Oklahoma State, the fifth-most in school history.

Quarterback Collin Klein scored from one-yard out to give K-State a thrilling three-point victory in four overtimes over Texas A&M. Klein broke the single-season rushing TD record against the Aggies, while he tied the single-game record with five scores.

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Junior Collin Klein scored on a quarterback sneak in the fourth overtime, his sixth touchdown of the game, giving No. 17 K-State a dramatic 53-50 victory over Texas A&M. It was the first overtime game in the 44-year history of Bill Snyder Family Stadium and just the second in school history since a double-overtime 36-33 loss to Texas A&M in the 1998 Dr. Pepper Big 12 Championship in St. Louis, Mo. Klein threw for a career-high 281 yards and added 103 yards on the ground for the Wildcats (8-2, 5-2 Big 12), who rallied from a 10-point deficit in the final 6 minutes of regulation to hand the Aggies (5-5, 3-4) their third consecutive loss. The Aggies had the ball first in the fourth OT and moved down to the Kansas State 3 before their drive stalled. Facing fourth-and-1, Texas A&M coach Mike Sherman played it safe and choose to kick a field goal, and that gave Kansas State the opening it needed. Klein pounded forward for three yards on third-and3 at the 18 for a first down, and a pass interference call on the Aggies’ Toney Hurd Jr. in the end zone gave Kansas State the ball at the 2. Klein went straight up the middle twice, getting across the goal line on his second try as the crowd erupted. The Wildcats poured off the sideline to celebrate the victory, piling up at the goal line before heading over to the student section. Cyrus Gray ran for 218 yards and two touchdowns, and Ryan Tannehill threw for 210 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Aggies, who lost in overtime to Missouri two weeks ago and fell to Oklahoma last week. They’ll need to beat Kansas or Texas in their remaining two games to become bowl eligible. It looked like they’d take care of that in regulation Saturday night. The game was tied at 21 early in the fourth quarter when Kansas State’s John Hubert fumbled at his own 29. The Aggies’ Terrence Frederick recovered the ball, and Gray scored the go-ahead TD when he went virtually untouched right up the middle from 7 yards out.

Gray sprang free for a 63-yard run moments later, setting up a 17-yard field goal by Texas A&M’s Randy Bullock that made it 31-21 with 6:38 remaining. Used to late-game pressure, K-State never buckled. Klein hit Chris Harper in stride for a 53-yard TD pass that pulled the Cats within a field goal with 5:49 left. The defense forced Texas A&M into three-andout, and Kansas State took over at its own 32 with 4:40 left. Two 15-yard penalties on the defense helped the Wildcats move down field, and Anthony Cantele’s 44-yard field goal into the wind tied the game. The Wildcats had the ball first in OT and took just 3 plays to score. Klein slithered up the middle from 9 yards out and fumbled just shy of the goal line, but WR Tramaine Thompson was there to recover it. The Aggies answered when Tannehill hit Jeff Fuller on a 9-yard slant route for a score. The teams traded field goals in the second overtime, and Klein wasted no time in the third extra session as he went untouched 25 yards for the score. The Wildcats failed to convert the 2-point try, and Texas A&M faced with fourth-and-goal at the 8-yard linewhen Tannehill deftly sidestepped a defender in the backfield and found Uzoma Nwachukwu in the corner of the end zone for the tying score. But his throw to Fuller on the Aggies’ 2-point try bounced incomplete, sending the game to a fourth overtime.

Chris Harper hauled in a career-high 134 yards, including a crucial 53-yard pass late in the fourth quarter. 13 BOWLS UNDER BILL SNYDER 63

Tysyn Hartman, Nigel Malone and Emmanuel Lamur helped the K-State defense hold Texas to 10 points as they combined for 25 tackles, an interception and three pass breakups. Lamur’s first quarter interception led to a field goal.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Junior Collin Klein combined for two touchdowns - one passing and one rushing - as K-State held off a late Texas rally for a 17-13 win before a school-record 100,705 fans at Darrell K. RoyalTexas Memorial Stadium on Saturday night. The Wildcats (9-2, 6-2 Big 12) have now won four consecutive games over the Longhorns, including back-to-back contests at Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. The school moves to 6-2 against Texas in the Big 12 era, including 3-1 in Austin. K-State also eclipsed nine wins for the first time since the Big 12 Championship season of 2003, while the six league wins are the most since that magical season. Klein was sacked five times and K-State managed just 121 total yards, but still pulled out the win behind Klein’s 16-yard TD pass to Chris Harper with 9 seconds left in the first half and his 3-yard scoring run in the third quarter. Klein leads the nation with 25 rushing touchdowns and needs just two more to tie the Big 12 record set by Texas RB Ricky Williams in 1998. The 121 yards of total offense were the fewest in a game since registering 182 yards against Kansas in 2005, while the eight first downs were the fewest since also posting eight against Nebraska in 1996. Texas rallied from a 17-3 deficit behind backup QB Case McCoy, but the Longhorns (6-4, 3-4) have scored just one touchdown in the last two games. Klein and Wildcats simply found a way to win, just like they have most of the season, whether in lowscoring games or shootouts. Klein, who came in averaging 101 yards rushing, had just 4 against the Longhorns and was 9 of 17 passing for 83 yards. Chased and knocked around the entire game by the Texas pass rush, Klein was just good enough when he had to be. After getting sacked for the fourth time, Klein converted a 3rd-and-14 with a 24-yard sideline pass to Sheldon Smith. Two plays later, Klein hit Chris Harper

with a perfect strike to the corner of the end zone. Texas cornerback Carrington Byndum never turned around on the throw and Harper snagged an easy touchdown to give K-State a 10-3 halftime lead. Texas freshman QB David Ash threw his second interception to set up Klein’s rushing touchdown. Ty Zimmerman returned the pick to the Texas 37 before a pass interference penalty against Byndum set up the Wildcats at the Texas 3. Klein plowed over Texas linebacker Emmanuel Acho to put K-State ahead 17-3. Desperate for a spark on offense, the Longhorns pulled Ash for sophomore McCoy, who promptly drove Texas 81 yards to a touchdown on his 36-yard rollout pass to tight end Blaine Irby. Texas got within 17-13 on Justin Tucker's second field goal and momentum seemed to be with the Longhorns until the final rally ended at midfield as time ran out. Texas snapped the ball as time expired and McCoy rolled around for several second before finally throwing a short pass that fell incomplete nowhere near the end zone.

Chris Harper recorded a TD catch with nine seconds remaining in the first half. It was his second catch of the drive.

John Hubert ran for 120 yards, 26 of which came on his game-winning touchdown with 3:29 remaining in the contest. The sophomore also hauled in two passes for 28 yards.

MANHATTAN, Kan. - John Hubert ran for 120 yards and the go-ahead touchdown Saturday, helping No. 16 Kansas State beat Iowa State 30-23 to finish second in the Big 12. Picked to finish eighth in the league, K-State (102, 7-2) instead put together one of the best seasons in school history. Led by the 72-year-old Bill Snyder, the plucky Wildcats managed to beat everyone they faced except for Oklahoma and Oklahoma State, the later of which ended up as Big 12 Champions. Jeff Woody ran for 85 yards and two touchdowns for the Cyclones (6-6, 3-6), who became bowl eligible for the second time under Paul Rhoads when they knocked off the Cowboys a couple weeks ago. They nearly managed another upset against the Wildcats. Hubert scored the go-ahead touchdown on a tackle-breaking 26-yard run with 3:29 left, which gave Iowa State plenty of time to answer. Freshman quarterback Jared Barnett converted a pair of third downs to move into Kansas State territory, and then scrambled for eight yards on third-and-10. Facing fourth-and-2 at the 31, Woody took the handoff and was stuffed at the line of scrimmage, the ball popping out. K-State recovered it to seal the win. After lightning delayed the kickoff 90 minutes, the Cyclones jumped out to a 7-0 lead. Barnett threw a pass that wobbled so much it looked as if the ball was deflating, but Darius Darks managed to get the inside position on cornerback Nigel Malone and hauled in the 30-yard catch. The Wildcats needed 15 seconds to answer. Klein dropped back and floated a pass on a deep post route to Tramaine Thompson, one of the fastest players on the team. He caught it with his fingertips just past the outstretched hands of defensive back Ter’Ran Benton and raced the rest of the way untouched for the 68-yard touchdown, the longest play

from scrimmage for Kansas State this season. Iowa State regained the lead moments later when Woody plunged in from a yard out, but Zach Guyer’s extra point was blocked by Raphael Guidry, his fourth blocked kick of the season. Anthony Cantele kicked a 37-yard field goal for the Wildcats to get within 13-10. Kansas State took over at its own 38 just before halftime, and Klein mixed in a couple of option keepers along with a pair of 14-yard completions to Hubert. The sophomore running back took the second of them down to the goal line, and Klein’s TD sneak gave Kansas State a 17-13 lead at the break. Guidry’s second big play, this time an pick off a tipped ball, gave K-State prime field position early in the third , and Cantele’s 47-yarder made it 20-13. Iowa State responded by going 64 yards in 12 plays, converting three third downs, and Woody’s rumbling 13-yard scamper allowed the Cyclones to draw even with 4:25 left in the quarter.

Tramaine Thompson hauled in this 68-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter to get K-State on the board. 13 BOWLS UNDER BILL SNYDER 65

Following a 33-10 victory over Colorado on November 20, 1982, Kansas State head coach Jim Dickey and the Wildcats celebrate their first ever bowl invitation as the Independence Bowl was on hand to invite the Cats to Shreveport, La.

SHREVEPORT, La. - Wisconsin quarterback Randy Wright tossed two touchdown passes as the Badgers overcame an early Kansas State lead for a hard-earned 14-3 victory over the Wildcats in the seventh annual Independence Bowl. The game, played in cold and wet conditions before an announced crowd of 49,523, marked the first-ever Bowl appearance by Kansas State. A 23 mile-per-hour wind dropped temperatures to 10 below zero and kept many fans away. After a scoreless first quarter, K-State took the game’s first lead with 7:10 left in the second period when Steve Willis booted a 29-yard field goal after defensive end Bob Daniels recovered a fumble at the Badger 18-yard line. The Wildcats’ lead was short-lived, however. On Wisconsin’s ensuing drive following the field goal, the Badgers marched 79 yards in eight plays, scoring a touchdown on a 16-yard pass from Wright to Michael Jones to give UW a 7-3 halftime lead. Wisconsin struck again midway through the third quarter, when game offensive MVP Wright connected with Tim Stracka on an 87-yard touchdown pass for a 14-3 Badger advantage. K-State drove deep into Wisconsin territory on its next two possessions, but was unable to score. One opportunity ended when a Wildcat pass was intercepted in the Badger end

zone, while a second was stymied at the Wisconsin 26-yard line, when K-State could not convert on fourth down. Darrell Ray Dickey completed 13 of 35 passes for 127 yards and one interception on the game for 1982 Big Eight Coach of the Year Jim Dickey’s Wildcat squad. The 35 pass attempts stood as a Kansas State bowl record until 2004, when Ell Roberson’s 51 attempts in the 2004 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl vs. Ohio State.

Darrell Ray Dickey set the then-school mark for pass attempts in the 1982 Independence Bowl with 35 against Wisconsin. 13 BOWLS UNDER BILL SNYDER 83

TUCSON, Ariz. - It’s probable that not even Bill Snyder could have scripted the events of Dec. 29, 1993, any better as K-State put the finishing touches on one of its finest football seasons in school history with a breathtaking 52-17 total domination of Wyoming. Wyoming took a quick 3-0 lead on a 35yard field goal, but the rest, as they say, is history. K-State put its high-powered offense into overdrive and scored on its first three possessions. J.J. Smith put K-State on the board with a two-yard TD run as the Wildcats drove 68 yards in just six plays to take a 6-3 lead. Tate Wright added a 22yard field goal, and on its third possession, K-State drove 76 yards in only eight plays to take a 16-3 lead on Chad May’s two-yard TD plunge. With 1:07 left in the first half, Wyoming punted deep in its own territory. All-American Andre Coleman fielded the ball at his own 32, sidestepped two defenders and then raced untouched down the far sideline for a touchdown to put K-State ahead 24-10 at the half. Coleman and company began the second half right where they left off and quickly broke the Cowboys’ spirit with a 61-yard touchdown catch just 54 seconds into the third quarter. Freshman All-American Kevin Lockett then put K-State ahead 38-10 midway through the third quarter with a 30-yard touchdown reception. Reserve running back Leon Ed-

wards later added a 13-yard touchdown run, and cornerback Kenny McEntyre provided the game’s crowning moment with a 37-yard interception return for a touchdown with just over six minutes left in the game. The final numbers were staggering, as the Kansas State offense rolled up 502 yards and averaging 7.5 yards per play.

Tyson Schwieger and the K-State offense rolled up 502 yards in the Wildcats’ 52-17 Copper Bowl victory over Wyoming.

HONOLULU, Hawaii - Kansas State played Boston College to a defensive standoff much of the afternoon at Aloha Stadium, but the Wildcat offense never got on track and fell 12-7 in the 1994 Aloha Bowl. The Eagles sacked K-State quarterback Chad May eight times, including a four-hit effort by end Mike Mamula, who was named the game’s most valuable player. Couple that with a ground game that gained just 30 yards and K-State netted just 124 altogether in finishing 9-3. The Eagles couldn’t distance themselves from the Wildcats despite a 51-yard bolt by David Green on the game’s second play. That carry led to an early 7-0 cushion for the Eagles but would be the only touchdown of the day. K-State’s lone score came with eight seconds left in the first quarter when Joe Gordon crashed the middle of BC’s line and blocked a punt by Jeff Beckley. Chris Sublette recovered the ball on the first hop in the end zone and the game was tied, 7-7. However, BC would answer with its own end zone patrol later in the half when Mamula applied the biggest of his hits on May for a safety with 2:37 left. The Wildcats reached the BC 19 on their ensuing drive, but Eric Shorter intercepted a dropped pass in the flat on third-and-15 with 19 seconds left in the half. Still, a defense that featured punter Eric Hardy, Gordon and a pair of 10-tackle per-

formances from Chuck Marlowe and Mario Smith kept the Wildcats within striking distance until the end. BC could only tack on a 35-yard field goal by David Gordon with 1:18 remaining in the second half.

Joe Gordon was chosen as K-State’s MVP in the Aloha Bowl after he blocked a punt leading to the Wildcats’ only score. 13 BOWLS UNDER BILL SNYDER 85

A 2005 inductee into the Holiday Bowl Hall of Fame, quarterback Brian Kavanagh was the game’s Offensive MVP in 1995. Kavanagh came off the bench to go 18-of-24 through the air for 242 yards and four touchdowns.

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - For the second time in three years, Kansas State ran roughshod over the Western Athletic Conference’s best as the Wildcats outran, outplayed and outscored Colorado State for a 54-21 win in front of more than 51,000 fans at the 1995 Plymouth Holiday Bowl at Jack Murphy Stadium. K-State began the scoring on an Eric Hickson 4-yard run with 11:21 left in the first quarter. After CSU responded with a touchdown to knot the score at 7-7, it was all Kansas State. The Wildcats outscored the Rams, 19-0, in the second quarter by virtue of an interception return by safety Mario Smith and a blocked punt. Brian Kavanagh, who would earn the game’s Offensive MVP award, came in for the injured Matt Miller in the second quarter and immediately put the ball in the end zone. Kavanagh completed 18-of-24 passes for 242 yards and a Holiday Bowl-record tying four touchdowns. The junior signal-caller tossed scoring strikes to Brian Lojka, Tyson Schwieger, Kevin Lockett and Mitch Running. Including Miller’s statistics before he was hurt, the Wildcat quarterbacks combined to complete 24 of 32 passes for 324 yards and four touchdowns. On the defensive side of the ball, Smith earned MVP honors by picking off two passes, registering two passes broken up, making four tackles and generally creating

havoc among the Ram receivers. The nation’s top-ranked defense held the potent CSU offense to 301 yards, while forcing four turnovers. Individually, Hickson ran for 103 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries, while catching six passes. Running caught six passes for 126 yards and a TD. Freshman punter James Garcia averaged 45.0 yards on three punts.

Free safety Mario Smith earned Defensive MVP honors after picking off two passes, breaking up two more and making four stops.

DALLAS, Texas - An estimated 45,000 Kansas State fans descended on Dallas to watch the Wildcats in their first-ever New Year’s Day Bowl and were witness to one of the most exciting games of the bowl season. After taking a 15-5 lead following a 72yard touchdown pass from Brian Kavanagh to Kevin Lockett, the Wildcats saw why BYU quarterback Steve Sarkisian was considered one of the nation’s best. The Cougar QB tossed two fourth-quarter touchdowns to lead No. 5 BYU to a 19-15 Cotton Bowl victory. Following Sarkisian’s 28-yard scoring strike to Kealaluhi with 3:39 remaining in the game, Kavanagh and Lockett led the Wildcats to a first down at the BYU 12-yard line with around one minute remaining. But, Kavanagh’s pass to Jimmy Dean was picked off at the 3-yard line by Omarr Morgan to preserve BYU’s 14th win. The game’s first score came when Cotton Bowl Defensive MVP Shay Muirbrook tackled Kavanagh in the end zone for a safety in the first quarter. After the free kick, BYU scored again on an Ethan Pochman 39-yard field goal. K-State had a hard time getting on track until the final play of the first half. Kavanagh heaved a Hail Mary into the end zone, where, after the ball was deflected by a BYU defender, K-State junior Andre Anderson scooped the ball in for a touchdown. Following the PAT that gave K-State a 7-5

lead, a penalty on BYU forced the teams to return from the locker room so that the Wildcats could try for two points. Mike Lawrence made it pay off by scoring to give KSU an 85 lead heading into halftime. K-State scored its second touchdown of the game when Kevin Lockett bounced off tacklers following a reception on a short slant pattern and raced 72 yards down the left sideline.

BYU’s Steve Sarkisian, now the head coach at Washington, tossed two fourth-quarter touchdowns to rally the Cougars. 13 BOWLS UNDER BILL SNYDER 87

His 77-yard reception in the fourth quarter was the longest in Fiesta Bowl history. After allowing Syracuse to jump out to a 3-0 lead on the first of Nate Trout's three field goals, Bishop led the Wildcats to three consecutive touchdowns in the second quarter. The first came following a failed fake field goal attempt by Syracuse, culminating in a 19-yard pass to McDonald. Bishop followed with a 12-yard TD dash on K-State's next possession, and wrapped up the firsthalf scoring with a 28-yard completion to Justin Swift on a tight end screen. Syracuse scored 12 points in the final 2:18 to close within 21-15 at the half. Following a scoreless third quarter, Bishop and the Wildcats put away the Orangemen with two big plays in the fourth.

SAN ANTONIO, Texas - The unranked Purdue Boilermakers shocked the No. 4 Kansas State Wildcats, 37-34, in the sixth annual Builders Square Alamo Bowl. More than 30,000 purple-clad fans cheered the Wildcats on in one of the most exciting bowl game finishes in school history. After a scoreless first quarter, both offenses finally got untracked, exploding for 71 points over the final three periods. Unfortunately for K-State, it was the Boilermakers who were the first to get things going, taking a 17-7 halftime lead courtesy of a pair of Drew Brees touchdown passes and a 25-yard Travis Dorsch field goal. Fumble recoveries in the end zone by both squads and another Dorsch field goal, this time with just four seconds to go in the third quarter had Purdue sporting a 27-13 lead heading into the final stanza. But the Wildcats put together a furious rally over the final 15 minutes. David Allen, who rushed for 83 yards on 13 carries, scored from three yards out to get things going before Michael Bishop found an open Darnell McDonald for an Alamo Bowl record 88-yard touchdown strike that pulled the Cats within a field goal at 30-27. Then, with just 1:24 left in the game, Bishop connected with tight end Justin Swift for a two-yard touchdown and a 34-30 K-State lead, its first and only of the game.

Brees then engineered a six-play, 80-yard drive that ended with a 24-yard score to Isaac Jones to put the Boilermakers back on top for good at 37-34 with 30 seconds remaining. Pinned back on its own two-yard line, KState saw its hopes dashed when Bishop was intercepted to end the game.

David Allen rushed for 83 yards on 13 carries to lead K-State, including a score from three yards out in the fourth quarter. 13 BOWLS UNDER BILL SNYDER 89

K-State’s victory in the 1999 Holiday Bowl clinched the Wildcats’ third straight 11-win season, making K-State and Florida State the only two programs in the nation to accomplish that feat in each of the last three seasons.

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Kansas State used a stiff defense and three rushing touchdowns by quarterback Jonathan Beasley to defeat Washington 24-20 in the 1999 Holiday Bowl. Trailing 20-17 late in the third quarter, the Wildcats embarked on a 20-play, 92-yard drive that took 9 minutes, 54 seconds off the clock to score the eventual game-winning touchdown. The drive was set up after senior Lamar Chapman picked off Marques Tuiasosopo. K-State took a 17-13 lead on its first possession of the second half, scoring on an 11-yard touchdown run by Beasley. The Huskies came back with a 73-yard touchdown drive when Maurice Shaw scored on a five-yard run. That score was the first against K-State in the third quarter during the entire season. Beasley completed 15-of-31 passes for 216 yards to go with three rushing touchdowns to earn Offensive MVP honors, while Darren Howard was named Defensive MVP after totaling nine tackles and three sacks. The first half was a back-and-forth affair that saw the Huskies take a 13-10 lead into the locker room. Washington drew first blood when John Anderson booted a 39 yard field goal just 3:32 into the contests. K-State quickly responded as Beasley drove the Cats 47 yards on the ensuing possession, calling his own number from one yard out to cap the eightplay drive.

Anderson hit on his second of two firsthalf field goal attempts to pull Washington with in a point heading into the second quarter. A Jamie Rheem field goal from 41 yards out pushed K-State's lead to 10-6, but the Huskies would put the half's final points on the board on a Pat Conniff three-yard touchdown run midway through the period.

Darren Howard was named Defensive MVP of the Holiday Bowl after collecting nine tackles and three sacks vs. Washington.

DALLAS, Texas - Jonathan Beasley threw two touchdowns and rushed for another in leading Kansas State to a 35-21 win over Tennessee in the 65th annual Southwestern Bell Cotton Bowl Classic. The victory gave the Wildcats back-to-back bowl wins for the first time in school history. Beasley, who was named the game's Offensive MVP, had touchdown passes of 56 and 10 yards to Quincy Morgan to key a rally in the second quarter. The touchdown throws, which came three minutes apart, turned a 7-7 tie into a 21-7 Wildcat lead. Tennessee pulled within seven points before halftime when Jabari Greer went 78 yards with an interception for a touchdown. But Kansas State got two touchdown runs from Josh Scobey early in the third quarter to regain its cushion. Scobey finished with 147 yards on a career-high 28 carries in the game, the most yards gained in a bowl game by a Wildcat in school history. Travis Henry 81-yard run late in the game was the final Volunteers' score. Henry finished as the game's leading rusher, gaining 180 yards on 17 carries. Beasley finished with 210 yards passing on a 13-for-27 performance. He also rushed for a career-best 98 yards on 17 carries. The senior put the Wildcats on the scoreboard first with a 14-yard run late in the first quarter. Senior defensive end Chris Johnson was the Defensive MVP after leading the Wild-

cats with four tackles, including two sacks of Tennessee QB Casey Clausen. The Wildcat defense held Clausen to just seven completions and forced three interceptions.

Chris Johnson was named the Defensive MVP of the Cotton Bowl after leading the Wildcats with four tackles and two sacks. 13 BOWLS UNDER BILL SNYDER 91

PHOENIX, Ariz. - Syracuse running back James Mungro rushed for 112 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Orangemen to a victory over Kansas State in the 2001 Insight.com Bowl played at Bank One Ballpark. Mungro scored on runs of 65, 1 and 1 yard to pace the Syracuse offense. The Orangemen added a late touchdown in the fourth quarter on a 52-yard pass from Robin Anderson to Johnnie Morant. The Syracuse defense did a good job in stopping Kansas State's running offense, which came into the bowl game ranked fifth in the nation. Despite allowing 46 yards on 10 carries to senior Josh Scobey, the Orangemen held K-State to just 33 net rushing yards. Junior Marc Dunn led the Wildcats with 151 yards passing in relief of starter Ell Roberson. Dunn completed 12 of 25 passes and suffered one interception. Roberson was 2-for-15 for 70 yards for the Wildcats, who were sacked five times by Syracuse. Mungro opened the scoring on his 65-yard run midway through the first quarter. Kansas State responded just two minutes later with a 29-yard field goal by freshman Joe Rheem. The drive was sparked by a 47yard pass from Roberson to Aaron Lockett and a 27-yard carry by Scobey. Syracuse took advantage of a fumble deep in Wildcat territory early in the second quarter. Mungro scored from the 1-yard line to

convert the turnover, but the extra-point was blocked by Josh Buhl. On the next play from scrimmage, Willie Ford got the first of his two interceptions to set up the Orangemen again. Two plays later, Mungro went over from the 1-yard line again, but Buhl also blocked the extra-point.

Kansas State’s defense held Syracuse to 222 total yards of offense, including 113 yards passing, and eight first downs.

With three rushing touchdowns, Ell Roberson tied Jonathan Beasley’s school record for rushing touchdowns in a bowl game. Roberson also went 11-of-28 through the air for 215 yards and the game-winning touchdown strike with 1:15 remaining.

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Derrick Evans caught a 10-yard touchdown pass from Ell Roberson with 1:15 left in the game to lift Kansas State to its first and final lead of the contest, as the Wildcats defeated Arizona State, 34-27, in the Pacific Life Holiday Bowl. Evans' catch completed a K-State comeback from deficits of 10-0, 20-7 and 27-20 against the Sun Devils. Roberson, voted the Offensive MVP of the game, rushed for 63 yards, including touchdowns of 32, 3 and 1 yards, and passed for 215 yards by completing 11 of 28 throws. Roberson's 32-yard score came with just 54 seconds left in the second half and pulled the Wildcats within 20-14. Just 31 seconds earlier, Mike Barth converted on a 39-yard field goal to give ASU its largest lead of the game at 20-7. K-State tied the game at 20-20 early in the fourth quarter when Roberson capped a 16-play, 65-yard drive with a 3-yard score. Arizona State quarterback Andrew Walter, who threw for 293 yards on 28-for-57 passing, found Mike Williams for a 10-yard score to put the Sun Devils back ahead on the next possession. But the Wildcats responded with an 80yard drive on its next opportunity, setting up Roberson's 1-yard touchdown dive that tied the game again at 27-27 with 6:41 left. The Wildcat defense forced a Sun Devil punt that Terence Newman returned 27 yards. From there, the Wildcats needed

seven plays to cover 59 yards to set up the game-winning touchdown. Arizona State converted two first downs on its final drive, but Rashad Washington batted down Walter's final pass to preserve the win.

Derrick Evans’ 10-yard touchdown reception with 1:15 left propelled K-State to a 34-27 win over ASU in the Holiday Bowl. 13 BOWLS UNDER BILL SNYDER 93

TEMPE, Ariz. - Kansas State started slowly but finished with a fury in the 33rd Annual Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. But it wasn’t enough to overcome a 21-point third-quarter deficit as the Wildcats lost a hard fought 35-28 decision to Ohio State in its first ever BCS bowl game at Sun Devil Stadium. Trailing 35-14 heading into the fourth quarter, Ayo Saba scored from three yards out to cap an eight-play, 46-yard drive and closed the game to 14 points. Ell Roberson's second rushing touchdown with just 2:47 to go pulled K-State within a touchdown, setting up a frantic finish. After recovering the ensuing on-sides kick, the Wildcats were flagged for being offsides, forcing a re-kick. This time the Buckeyes recovered at the K-State 36-yard line. But the Wildcats held and got the ball back with 1:12 to play at their own 10-yard. A 21-yard completion to Davin Dennis, who finished with a career-high seven receptions for 113 yards, moved the ball to the K-State 26. On the next play Roberson connected with Jermaine Moreira for 26 yards to the Ohio State 48 to get Kansas State within striking distance. However, Roberson's desperation pass from midfield was batted down at the 2, allowing Ohio State to escape with its second straight Fiesta Bowl victory. Roberson completed 20 passes on a career-high 51 attempts for 294 yards. His 51 attempts were the most ever by a Wildcat in

a bowl game, surpassing Darrell Dickey’s 34 in the 1982 Independence Bowl. Josh Buhl tied a K-State bowl game record with 13 total tackles, equaling Laird Veatch's total from the 1993 Copper Bowl and giving him a K-State single-season record of 184.

Ell Roberson set a K-State bowl record for passing attempts, hitting on 20-of-51 attempts for 294 yards and a pair of scores.

HOUSTON, Texas - Kansas State hung with No. 16 Rutgers for 30 minutes, but the Scarlet Knights scored 20 unanswered points in the second half to hand the Wildcats a 3710 loss in the inaugural Texas Bowl before 52,210 fans at Reliant Stadium. Rutgers was as good as advertised and kept K-State off balance all night long. Ray Rice, the Texas Bowl MVP, rushed for 170 yards and a touchdown and Tim Brown caught two TD passes, for the Scarlet Knights, who claimed their first bowl victory in 137 seasons of intercollegiate football. Brown’s two TD catches came in the opening period and staked Rutgers to a quick 14-0 lead. K-State answered with a 44-yard field goal by Jeff Snodgrass - his 17th of the season - and a 76-yard punt return for a touchdown by Yamon Figurs that was the longest in K-State bowl history to close the gap to 14-10 midway through the second quarter. But Jeremy Ito connected on a 37-yard field goal to close the half and linebacker Quintero Frierson returned an interception 27 yards for a touchdown on the first play from scrimmage of the second half to put Rutgers comfortably ahead 24-10. Rice sprinted 46-yards for his lone touchdown of the game on the Scarlet Knights’ next possession before Ito closed out the scoring with a pair of fourth-quarter field goals to provide the final margin. The Scarlet Knights’ seventh-ranked de-

fense proved to be too much and held Kansas State at bay all game long. The Wildcats mustered just 162 yards of total offense for its second fewest yards in a bowl game. Junior wide receiver Jordy Nelson led the Wildcat receivers, hauling in four receptions for 81 yards. On defense, senior linebacker Brandon Archer led all players with nine total tackles to finish his career with 268 stops for the 17th-most in school history.

Quarterback Josh Freeman finished the season with 1,780 passing yards in 2006, setting a K-State freshman record. 13 BOWLS UNDER BILL SNYDER 95

NEW YORK - The first Pinstripe Bowl turned into a home run derby. Delone Carter ran for 198 yards and two touchdowns, Marcus Sales caught three long TD passes and Syracuse got some help from a celebration penalty on Kansas State to beat the Wildcats 36-34 at Yankee Stadium. Adrian Hilburn slipped a tackle and raced to a 30-yard touchdown catch with 1:13 remaining to pull Kansas State within two. Hilburn saluted the crowd behind the visitor's dugout and was flagged 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct, which pushed the 2-point conversion attempt back to the 17-yard line. Carson Coffman overthrew Aubrey Quarles in the end zone, and when K-State couldn’t come up with the onside kick, Syracuse only had to take a knee to win a bowl game for the first time since 2001. Daniel Thomas ran for three touchdowns for Kansas State, which was making its first bowl appearance since 2006. In a bowl season filled with blowouts so far, the first bowl game in New York in 48 years turned out to be a hit. The teams traded big plays right from the start - Thomas went 51 yards for a score on the second play from scrimmage - and scored touchdowns on the first five second-half possessions. Kansas State coach Bill Snyder, sensing field goals would not be enough, called for a fake with about five minutes left in the fourth from the 10, but Syracuse stacked up Ryan Doerr on the run. Carter, who scored two second-half touch-

downs, broke free for a 60-yard run on the next play. It set up Ross Krautman's 40-yard field goal with 3:08 left that made it 36-28. Coffman, who played brilliantly in his last college game, led the Wildcats into Syracuse territory and connected with Hilburn near the sideline about 10 yards down field. After winning a footrace to the end zone, he dropped the ball, did a quick salute and turned to celebrate with his teammates. The flags came flying and the 2-point attempt turned into a desperation play.

Carson Coffman’s 74-percent completion percentage was the second-highest all-time by a Wildcat QB in a bowl game.
