LIBERTY BOWL MEMORIAL STADIUM

LIBERTY BOWL STADIUM In 1965, an unprecedented $32 million was paid for a four year contract with the NCAA to broadcast football games on Saturday afternoons, Edward White became the first American to walk in space, and the Memphis Memorial Stadium opened. The playing surface was natural grass from its inception and was replaced by FieldTurf in 2005 and AstroTurf in 2012. Designed as a true bowl, the facility is built so that all seats provide a great view of the playing filed. Dedicated to Memphis veterans of World Wars I and II and the Korean War, it soon became the home of the Liberty Bowl football game, now known as the AutoZone Liberty Bowl. The stadium was soon renamed the Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium. In keeping with its patriotic theme, an historic electric American Flag was renovated and moved to the stadium in 1966. Lit at night, the unusual neon flag can be seen “waving” for miles.

CITY OF MEMPHIS

MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE ONE OF AMERICA’S HISTORIC DESTINATIONS Memphis, Tennessee has taken its historical roots and leapt into the 21st century. Home to such legendary artists as B.B. King, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, and John Lee Hooker, Memphis’ musical tradition is second to none, but the River City’s appeal doesn’t stop there. From Graceland and the allure of Beale St. to the National Civil Rights Museum, Memphis’ offerings are as diverse and entertaining as anywhere in the Southeastern United States. Memphis has become known the world over for its special brand of smoky barbecue, so it’s no wonder one of the biggest annual events in Memphis is the World Championship Barbecue Contest held in May. Boasting a growing metropolitan population of over 1.26 million, Memphis is a city that gets attention, attracts visitors and does its best to make them never want to leave. For those visiting Memphis or just getting to know the city, below is a list of “can’t miss” things to do while in town. 1. Beale Street 2. The Mississippi River 3. The National Civil Rights Museum 4. The Peabody Ducks 5. The Rendezvous Restaurant 6. BBQ 7. Sun Studio 8. Graceland 9. Memphis Zoo 10. Stax Museum of American Soul Music

CATS, HOGS CLASH IN THE RIVER CITY

TWO PHYSCIAL TEAMS MEET IN MEMPHIS CATS FACE HOGS IN BIG 12/SEC SHOWDOWN Two of college football’s most physical teams will meet for the second time in the last five bowl seasons as Kansas State takes on Arkansas in the 2016 AutoZone Liberty Bowl, January 2, at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium. This year’s AutoZone Liberty Bowl looks to be one of the more exciting bowl matchups of the season as both teams come into the contest with similar styles and both head coaches having familiarity and experience with each other. The AutoZone Liberty Bowl marks the 19th bowl game in K-State history and the 17th under Hall of Fame head coach Bill Snyder. The Wildcats will be making their first-ever appearance in the tradition-rich AutoZone Liberty Bowl and their sixth-straight bowl under Snyder. 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. Following a 10-2 campaign in 2011 and a berth in the AT&T Cotton Bowl, Snyder guided the Wildcats to the 2012 Big 12 Championship and a spot in the 2013 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl against Oregon, K-State’s second BCS bowl game. In 2013, K-State won six of its last seven games of the season, culminated by a dominating win over the Michigan Wolverines in the 2013 Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl to finish 8-5, before last season’s 9-3 regular season mark catapulted the Wildcats to the Valero Alamo Bowl against UCLA.

A QUICK LOOK AT THE WILDCATS It was a tale of three segments to the 2015 football season for K-State as the Wildcats got off to a quick 3-0 start following wins over South Dakota, UTSA and Louisiana Tech. Close losses on the road at Oklahoma State and at home against TCU, both squads that would be ranked in the Top 10 during the season, followed. The Wildcats had their chances in both contests with fourth-quarter leads in each, but could not hold on. Four more Big 12 losses followed and put K-State in jeopardy of missing the postseason for the first time since 2009. But, a group of 18 seniors and a hall of fame head coach weren’t going to let that happen. K-State fought through adversity (both injuries and a 3-6 record) to win its final three games, two of which were capped by dramatic fourth-quarter comebacks, to become bowl eligible for the 17th time under Snyder. The Wildcat offense in 2015 fought through numerous injuries, including losing starting quarterback Jesse Ertz on the first series of the season, but managed to be productive in the tough Big 12 Conference as the Cats were in position late to win five of the six games they lost

this season. Quarterback Joe Hubener has recorded 13 rushing touchdowns on the season, which rank third among FBS quarterbacks, while running back Charles Jones has seen his most productive days as a Wildcat come in crunch time down the stretch this season. At wide receiver, Kody Cook, who led the Cats to a 24-23 win at quarterback against West Virginia to clinch bowl eligibility, and Deante Burton have been the go-to guys, while Winston Dimel and Glenn Gronkowski have been two of the top fullbacks in the Big 12 this season. Along the offensive line, senior Cody Whitehair has led the way for a group that saw all five starters earn Academic All-Big 12 recognition this season. On defense, the Wildcats surrendered just three total points in the first two games of the season before injuries in the secondary started to mount up. Up front, All-Big 12 players Travis Britz and Will Geary were consistent throughout the course of the season, while sophomore and All-Big 12 linebacker Elijah Lee led the team in tackles with 75. Britz collected 11.0 tackles for loss on the season, while defensive end Jordan Willis led the team with 13.0 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks. Special teams continue to be a dominant phase for the Wildcats as All-American returner Morgan Burns led the nation with four kickoff return scores this season, including one on the opening kickoff of the season and another that proved to be the game-winner in a bowlclinching win over West Virginia. K-State also saw both of its place kickers, Jack Cantele and Matthew McCrane, earn All-Big 12 honors, marking the first team in the Big 12 to earn that honor since Colorado in 2001.

A QUICK LOOK AT THE RAZORBACKS Arkansas heads into the AutoZone Liberty Bowl with some momentum, having won five of its last six games of the season. The Razorbacks, led by former K-State co-defensive coordinator Bret Bielema, finished the regular season 7-5 overall and 5-3 in SEC play. All-SEC performers Sebastian Tretola (OL), Hunter Henry (TE), Alex Collins (RB) and Dan Skipper (OL) lead the Arkansas offense as it recorded a league-best six 200-yard rushing games in SEC play. Arkansas led the SEC in scoring in conference games at 34.4 points, while over its final four games of the regular season against SEC opponents, it averaged 40.5 points with 22 touchdowns (11 rushing & 11 passing). Quarterback Brandon Allen came on strong down the stretch and finished the season with 3,125 yards, 29 touchdowns and seven interceptions. On defense, Brooks Ellis has 101 total tackles, while Deatrich Wise has 10.5 tackles for loss and 8.0 sacks. 5

HEAD COACH BILL SNYDER HEAD COACH

BILL SNYDER

24th Season at K-State

just the fourth person in the history of college football to be inducted into the

Hall of Fame

as an active coach

Five-Time National Coach of the Year

P

Precise. Intense. Tireless. Accomplished. Dedicated. Caring. Hall of Famer. Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder is all of these and much more. To understand the full picture of Snyder, it is necessary to acknowledge his values, sincerity and warmth, along with the concern he shows for the people around him – all qualities that solidify his reputation as an innovator and mentor in college athletics. The architect of the “greatest turnaround in college football history” returned to the sidelines in 2009 with hopes of revitalizing a program that he once built, piece by piece, into a national force. And, after seven seasons back in charge, he has done just that – and then some. Over the past seven years, K-State has totaled 57 victories – an average of 8.1 wins per year – advanced to six-straight bowl games, won a conference championship in 2012 and finished third or better in the ultra-competitive Big 12 Conference in three of the last five seasons. However, the recent success should come as no surprise as Snyder took over a program in 1989 that was in the midst of a 27-game winless streak and turned it into a national contender that advanced to 11-straight bowl games and tallied six 11-win seasons over a seven-year stretch. Turning around a program not only once, but twice, is one of the biggest reasons why Snyder became just the fourth person all-time to be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame as an active coach. The man who said, ‘No,’ to those who said it couldn’t be done in Manhattan, Kansas, was enshrined in the hall in December. The latest chapter in the career of the legendary coach was in 2015, Snyder’s 24th year at the helm of the program and perhaps one of his greatest in-season coaching jobs, which saw the Wildcats bounce back from a 3-6 start and win threestraight games to end the year and advance to the program’s 17th bowl game under the legendary head coach. Following a 3-0 start, K-State lost several close contests to nationallyranked Big 12 opponents and found itself in a win-or-go-home scenario in regards to bowl eligibility with three games remaining. But, Snyder’s charges rallied behind 18 seniors, including

16

2015 Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Year Morgan Burns, as well as Goal No. 10 “Never Give Up” of Coach Snyder’s 16 Goals for Success to make it back to the postseason. In fact, K-State became just the sixth FBS program since 2006 to stave off bowl elimination for at least three straight games. In 2014, the squad recorded its 13th season with nine or more wins and top-20 finish in the Associated Press poll. The Cats reached the top 10 during the season with a 7-1 start as K-State’s lone early-season loss come at the hands of No. 5 Auburn. Led by Consensus All-American wide receiver Tyler Lockett, who became the school’s first four-time All-American and school record holder for career catches, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns, the Cats played for a Big 12 Championship in the final weekend of the regular season. A total of 14 players earned All-Big 12 honors in 2014 while Lockett was named Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Year for the second straight season and four-year starter B.J. Finney was Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year. Finney joined Lockett by earning All-America honors at center, while redshirt freshman place kicker Matthew McCrane was an honorable mention All-American. Act Two of the renowned career started in 2009 when the Wildcats went 6-6 prior to a 7-5 campaign in 2010 and a berth in the inaugural Pinstripe Bowl. K-State’s climb back into the nation picture continued in 2011 as the Cats went 10-3, finished No. 8 in the BCS standings and earned their first Cotton Bowl invitation since 2001. The bar was raised again in 2012 as Snyder led the Cats to their third conference championship in school history and first since 2003. Kansas State, which won its first 10 games of the season and finished the regular season at 11-1 with an 8-1 mark in Big 12 play, tied the school record for overall wins and conference victories while also ascending to No. 1 in the BCS rankings following its 10-0 start. Snyder went on to win the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Award as well as top Big 12 coach honors for the second straight season following the Cats’ memorable 2012 season that culminated with a berth in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.

HEAD COACH BILL SNYDER Quarterback Collin Klein became just the second player in school history to be named a Heisman Trophy finalist, while a school-record 20 Wildcats earned 2012 All-Big 12 honors including Klein (Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year), Arthur Brown (Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year) and Meshak Williams (Big 12 Defensive Lineman of the Year). In 2013, K-State opened the year 2-4 with all four defeats being by 10 points or less. But Snyder’s charges continued to improve each week and went on to become just the fourth team in Big 12 history to bounce back from the slow start to become bowleligible. And, with a victory over Michigan in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, the 2013 Wildcats became just the eighth FBS team in the BCS era to earn eight wins after starting a season 2-4 or worse. In 2011, Snyder’s Wildcats jumped out to a 7-0 start – the best in 12 years – which included wins at Miami, against 15th-ranked Baylor and at Texas Tech. Following a two-game skid to a pair of nationally-ranked teams, the Cats got back into the win column with a thrilling four-overtime victory over Texas A&M – the longest conference game in Big 12 history – 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 league’s coaches. He also tutored 11 players to All-Big 12 honors, including the Defensive Newcomer of the Year in Brown and the Offensive Freshman of the Year in Lockett, who, along with Nigel Malone, was named a Walter Camp All-American. 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. 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, K-State was just one win away from advancing to the Big 12 Championship game as the Wildcats played at Nebraska in the regular-season finale with a championship game berth on the line. K-State claimed more First Team All-Big 12 selections on offense than any other school with four. Thomas, the Big 12 Newcomer of the Year, led the league in rushing, while Nick Stringer, Jeron Mastrud and Brandon Banks also garnered First Team AllBig 12 accolades. 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 193-100-1 (.656) record during his tenure with the Wildcats, including a 112-77-1 (.592) mark in Big 8/12 games. His 193 victories are more than four times the man in second place on K-State’s all-time coaching victories list and rank 29th in FBS history. But to fully understand the turnaround ushered in by Snyder at Kansas State one must only consider that the Wildcats had not won a game in the two previous seasons prior to his arrival. 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 23 years at K-State has not gone unnoticed. He has been named the National Coach of the Year five times (1991, 1994, 1998, 2011 and 2012). He has been a finalist for the prestigious Bear Bryant/FWAA National Coach of the Year Award in 1993, 1995, 2011 and 2012, while winning the award in 1998; a finalist for the Football News National Coach of the Year Award in 1995 and 1998; and a finalist for the 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 fouryear period (1990, 1991 and 1993). Since the inception of the Big 12 Conference, Snyder’s Wildcats truly have been a dominant force in the league, ranking in the top three in overall Big 12 wins. Kansas State also won more Big 12 road games than any team in the league during Snyder’s first tenure and advanced to the championship game three times. Those facts alone demonstrate the continuing evolution of a power in the Big 12 and with it the recognition that Snyder is truly one of the finest coaches ever in college football. The list of accomplishments Snyder has amassed in his 23 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 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 2004. And though the little tank produced yet another recordbreaking season capped by his third straight All-Big 12 selection, 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.

“Bill Snyder isn’t the coach of the year, and he isn’t the coach of the decade. He’s the coach of the century.” Barry Switzer, former Oklahoma and Dallas Cowboys head coach 17

HEAD COACH BILL SNYDER

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 over KU, 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 K-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. Thanks to that draft, and many others before and after it, the Wildcats currently lead the Big 12 Conference by having a player selected in the NFL Draft each of the last 21 seasons. The Cats started the 2000 season ranked in the top 10 for just the second time in school history and made a four-week run into the top five that saw K-State climb as high as No. 2. K-State won the Big 12 North 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 by the coaches, and Jamie Rheem, Mario Fatafehi and 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. In 1998, Snyder led K-State to its second straight 11-win season and a No. 4 ranking in the final polls. In November, K-State 18

occupied a No. 1 ranking in a national poll for the first time in school history. The Wildcats won the Big 12 North 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. Quarterback Michael Bishop became the first Wildcat to be a finalist for the Heisman Trophy, and a total of six players 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 eventual national champion Nebraska. The Wildcats defeated South Division champion Texas A&M, 3617. 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 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 behind national champion Nebraska. Following a 54-21 blitzing of WAC champion Colorado State in the Holiday Bowl, the Wildcats finished the season ranked sixth in the USA Today/CNN coaches’ poll and seventh in the AP poll. Both rankings were the highest ever attained by a Kansas State football team to that point. 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 IT’S ALL ABOUT FAMILY

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 has produced 54 different All-Americans during his 24 years as head coach, including eight consensus All-Americans: punter Sean Snyder (1992), free safety Jaime Mendez (1993), cornerback Chris Canty (1995 and 1996), place kicker Martin Gramatica (1997), punt returner David Allen (1998), linebacker Mark Simoneau (1999), cornerback Terence Newman (2002) and all-purpose player Tyler Lockett (2014). 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. Bishop became the first K-State player to be named a finalist for the Heisman Trophy (finishing as runner-up) while winning the 1998 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 K-State’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. 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 GA at USC under John McKay before becoming head coach at Indio High 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 and swimming coach at Austin College in Sherman, Texas. He joined the North Texas staff in 1976 and helped author an impressive turnaround with a three-year record of 26-7. Snyder, 76, 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.

• K-State extended its scoring streak to 230 consecutive games on a 100-yard kickoff return by Morgan Burns... It is the ninth-longest active streak in the nation, the secondlongest active streak in the Big 12 and the 20th longest alltime... The Wildcats have not been held off the scoreboard since a 12-0 loss at Colorado in 1996... The Wildcats have also scored in 156 consecutive home games dating back to 1991. • Burns’ kickoff return touchdown extended K-State’s streak with a kickoff return to a nation-leading 11-straight years... It was the first time KState has started a game with a kickoff-return touchdown since Justin McKinney went 88 yards against Florida Atlantic on Sept. 9, 2006... It is also the first kickoff return touchdown to start a season since at least 1936... It was also K-State’s 97th non-offensive touchdown since 1997, which also leads the nation. • K-State earned its first shutout since blanking Texas, 23-0, last season... It was the first in a season opener since backto-back shutouts to open the 1998 (66-0 over Indiana State) and 1999 (40-0 over Temple) seasons... South Dakota ended the game with 61 rushing yards... It was the 21st time in the last 53 games the Wildcats have held their opponents to less than 100 yards rushing. • Eight players made their first career starts, including six underclassmen. • A capacity crowd of 53,297 attended tonight’s game... The sellout crowd was the sixthstraight for a season opener, and the 21st consecutive sellout dating back to 2012.

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Senior Morgan Burns set the tone for the night by returning the opening kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown and the defense posted its first shutout in a season opener in 16 seasons, as Kansas State rolled to a 34-0 win before a sellout crowd at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. The Wildcats (1-0) held the Coyotes (0-1) to 266 total yards, including just 61 on the ground, to record its first shutout in a season opener since back-to-back shutouts to open the 1998 (66-0 over Indiana State) and 1999 (40-0 over Temple) seasons. It marked the 21st time in the last 53 games that the squad has held their opponent to less than 100 yards rushing. Overall, it was the first shutout since blanking Texas, 23-0, in 2014. On the offensive side, K-State accumulated 332 yards of total offense, including 185 yards on the ground. Redshirt freshman Justin Silmon led the way with 51 yards on just six carries, including a jaunt of 18 yards, while fellow freshman Winston Dimel added a pair of touchdowns on eight carries for 29 yards. Quarterback Joe Huebner, who replaced starter Jesse Ertz on the second play of the game due to injury, finished 9-of-18 through the air for 147 yards and a touchdown to go with 38 rushing yards. The day was highlighted by the induction of the four newest Ring of Honor members, as former Wildcats Clarence Scott, Michael Bishop, Darren Sproles and Jordy Nelson watched their names be forever etched into K-State history. In addition, head coach Bill Snyder was recognized before the game for his induction into the College Football Hall of Fame this December.

It marked Dimel’s first touchdown of his career. • The Wildcats added to their lead just four minutes later, as Hubener connected with wide receiver Deante Burton for a 24-yard touchdown reception with 5:45 before halftime. • The defense forced one fumble and allowed just 23 rushing yards on 16 attempts.

SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- Kansas State scored 30 unanswered points behind a solid performance from junior quarterback Joe Hubener, as the Wildcats topped the UTSA Roadrunners, 30-3, before 29,424 fans at the Alamodome. Overcoming a slow start in the first quarter, K-State (2-0) had no trouble moving the ball, posting 418 yards of total offense on its way to a 27-point win. Holding a narrow 7-3 lead at the half, the Wildcats exploded for 23 points and 254 yards of total offense, including 111 on the ground, in the second half. It marked the second-straight game that the Wildcats scored at least 30 points. Hubener finished the day with a career-high 243 yards passing on 12-of-23 attempts to go with a team-high 58 yards rushing and a touchdown. Hubener was one of six players that helped the Wildcats total 175 yards on the ground on 44 attempts and three touchdowns. Redshirt freshmen Winston Dimel and Justin Silmon each recorded touchdowns, as Silmon picked up his first career score to start the fourth quarter. Dimel led all receivers with 80 yards on two catches, including a 53-yard reception in the second quarter, while senior Andre Davis had 73 yards on a team-high four catches. On the defensive side, K-State allowed just three points on 229 total yards to UTSA (0-2), which had 32 points and 525 yards of total offense in its loss to No. 22 Arizona in the season opener. The Wildcats held the Roadrunners to just 37 rushing yards, the second-straight week that the defense has held an opponent to under 100 yards rushing. The three points allowed through the first two games are the fewest since 2002. Junior linebacker Will Davis led the defense with nine tackles on the day, while senior defensive tackle Travis Britz added four tackles of his own, including two sacks. K-State got a strong performance from back-up kicker Jack Cantele, who replaced Matthew McCrane early in the game after he went out with an injury. Cantele went a perfect 3-of-3 on the day, converting from 29, 27, and 21 yards. UTSA would jump on the scoreboard first, as place-kicker Daniel Portillo converted on a 51-yard field goal to cap a 10-play, 45-yard drive on the Roadrunners’ first possession. The teams would trade possessions throughout the first quarter until Hubener scored from one-yard out with 11:34 left in the second quarter. The score capped a 9-play, 88-yard drive by the Wildcats, which was highlighted by Dimel’s 53-yard catch. Leading 7-3 at halftime, K-State responded with an 8-play, 41-yard drive to open the third quarter that was capped by a 29-yard field goal by Cantele at the 10:47 mark that gave the Wildcats a 10-3 lead. All but four yards of the drive came on a 36-yard reception by Davis from Hubener. After forcing a three-and-out, the team added a second Cantele field goal of the quarter – a 27-yarder at the 4:34 mark – to extend the lead to 13-3. The Wildcats pushed their advantage to 20-3 just 10 seconds into the fourth quarter with a 14-yard touchdown run by Silmon, who had 38 of the drive’s 62 yards on five carries. K-State took advantage of terrific field position on its next possession, as the defense stopped the Roadrunners on 4th and 6 from its own 36 with 13:47 left in the fourth quarter. The team drove all the way to the UTSA 2 before a penalty stalled the drive, forcing Cantele’s third field goal of the day – a 21-yarder – to give the Wildcats a 23-3 lead with 10:49 to play. Dimel capped the game off with the team’s third rushing touchdown of the game, punching it in from one yard out for his third score of the year. He finished the game with 98 total yards, including 80 yards receiving. The 10-play, 62-yard drive was highlighted by redshirt freshman Dalvin Warmack’s 22-yard scamper.

• K-State started 3-0 for the first time since 2012 and the 17th time in Bill Snyder’s 24 years... Each of the previous 17 times K-State started 3-0 under Snyder, the Wildcats won at least seven games and advanced to a bowl. • It was the third overtime game in program history and the second-ever at Bill Snyder Family Stadium... It was K-State’s first overtime game since defeating Texas A&M on Nov. 12, 2011, 53-50, in four overtimes... K-State is 2-1 in overtime games, including a 2-0 record at home. • K-State went nine quarters to start the season without allowing a TD, surrendering its first touchdown with 3:30 left in the second quarter... It was the longest streak to start a season in school history in the post-World War II era (1945). • Justin Silmon rushed a career-high and game-high 24 times for a career-high 119 yards... It was the fourth-most rushing yards by a freshman in school history, while it was the first 100-yard game by a K-State running back since John Hubert had 220 yards at Kansas in the 2013 regularseason finale. • Defensive end Jordan Willis carded six tackles, including 3.5 sacks... His sack total ranks second in school history for a single game, just a half sack shy of tying the school record held by Chris Johnson (4.0) at Missouri in 2000. • Linebacker Elijah Lee finished the game with a careerhigh 12 tackles... His previous career best was six in the season opener against South Dakota, while his season high during his freshman year of 2014 was four against UTEP.

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Junior quarterback Joe Hubener connected on a 31-yard scoring strike to senior wide out Kody Cook in the third overtime to help propel Kansas State past Louisiana Tech, 39-33, on Saturday in front of 53,540 fans at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. It was just the third time Kansas State (3-0) went into overtime in school history, and the second at Bill Snyder Family Stadium after the Wildcats topped Texas A&M in four overtimes in 2011. After Charles Jones’ 2-point conversion failed leaving the score at 39-33, the Bulldogs (1-2, 0-1 C-USA) still had an opportunity to tie or win the game in the third overtime. However, the Wildcat defense forced quarterback Jeff Driskel to throw four-straight incomplete passes to preserve the victory. Hubener led the K-State attack on offense in just his second-career start, going 15-of-26 for 195 yards and three touchdowns, including the game-winner to Cook. The pivotal play came with the Wildcats backed up to the Louisiana Tech 31 after an illegal block penalty and facing 3rd-and-16. Cook recorded a standout day, catching a career-high four passes for a career-high 73 yards and a career-best two touchdowns, while sophomore linebacker Elijah Lee posted a career-high 12 tackles to go with two sacks and a forced fumble. Junior defense end Jordan Willis added six tackles, along with 3.5 sacks and a fumble recovery. Senior place-kicker Jack Cantele went perfect on the day, hitting from 33, 38, 20, 44 yards to tie his career high of four field goals made in a game. Cantele now has made 23 career field goals, ranking him 10th in school history. K-State opened the scoring as Cantele hit a 33-yard field goal to give the ‘Cats a 3-0 lead with 6:03 remaining in the first quarter. Cantele would extend the lead four minutes into the second quarter, connecting on a 38-yard field goal to make it 6-0 at the 11:06 mark. Louisiana Tech took the lead on the game’s first touchdown on a 1-yard run by Driskel, giving the Bulldogs a 7-6 lead at the 3:30 mark. The Bulldogs would strike again 13 seconds before halftime as kicker Jonathan Barnes hit on the first of four field goals on the day, this one from 25 yards out, to push the lead to 10-6. Driskel’s arm again played a major factor in the drive, accounting for 50 of the 59 yards on the drive. Louisiana Tech extended its lead to 13-6 in the third quarter, as Barnes connected on a 39-yard field goal to cap a 10-play, 38-yard drive at the 5:16 mark. K-State scored its first touchdown of the game with just 17 seconds remaining in the third quarter, as Hubener connected with Cook for a 4-yard score to knot the game at 13-all. Driskel gave the Bulldogs the lead again at 20-13 with his second rushing touchdown of the game – an 8-yard scamper – just a few minutes into the fourth quarter. Heath jump started the offense later in the quarter by returning a punt 58 yards to the Louisiana Tech 7. Jones would score just two plays later to tie the game up at 20-all with 7:04 to play. K-State then retook the lead with less than three minutes remaining in the game, as Cantele hit on his third field goal of the day – a 21-yarder – to put the Wildcats ahead 23-20, but Barnes hit a game-tying field goal from 45 yards left with no time left on the clock to send the game to overtime.

• K-State has now lost fivestraight games in Stillwater as the Wildcats’ last win at OSU came in 1999 with an average margin of defeat being four points. • Kansas State took a 28-20 lead into halftime, seeing a nation-leading 49-game winning streak snapped when leading at the half... The last time K-State lost when leading at halftime was a 41-39 setback at Oklahoma State in 2007 (led 21-17 at half). • The Wildcats were 5-for-5 in the red zone on Saturday with all five scores being touchdowns... K-State only had eight touchdowns in 18 red zone trips over the first three games. • Senior Kody Cook made his 15th career start at wide receiver, but ended up playing a majority of the game at quarterback, completing 10-of-16 passes for 122 yards and two touchdown, while rushing 21 times for 87 yards and another score... He became the first Wildcat since 2007 to rush, pass and catch a touchdown in the same season (Leon Patton), while he is the first Wildcat since at least 1988 to throw multiple touchdown passes in a season while also scoring touchdowns via a run and catch. • Redshirt freshman running back Justin Silmon rushed 15 times for 50 yards and one touchdown... He moved into fourth place in school history in rushing yards among freshmen at 260, passing Darren Sproles (210, 2001) and Daniel Sams (235, 2012). • Sophomore punter Nick Walsh recorded a season-high 47.5-yard average... It was just shy of his career high of 49.2 yards vs. UCLA in 2014.

STILLWATER, Okla. -- Oklahoma State place-kicker Ben Grogan converted on a 37-yard field goal with 32 seconds left, as the Cowboys rallied past Kansas State, 36-34, at Boone Pickens Stadium. After the Wildcats (3-1, 0-1 Big 12) took the lead 34-33 on a 5-yard touchdown run by junior quarterback Joe Hubener with 3:01 to play, the Cowboys (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) drove 45 yards over 10 plays to set up the game-winning score. K-State has now lost five-straight games at Boone Pickens Stadium by an average margin of just four points. The last Wildcat win in Stillwater came in 1999. K-State led 28-13 after redshirt freshman running Justin Silmon’s 6-yard touchdown run with 4:37 left in the second quarter and held a 28-20 edge at halftime. The Cowboys outscored the Wildcats, 16-6, in the second half to snap K-State’s nation-best 49-game winning streak when leading at halftime. The Wildcats’ offense posted 351 yards in the game, the fourth-straight game with at least 300 yards of total offense. The passing attack was led by senior Kody Cook, who replaced Hubener at quarterback midway through the first quarter. Cook went 10-for-16 for 122 yards and two touchdowns, while adding a team-high 87 yard rushing on 21 carries. Cook also became the first Wildcat since 2007 to rush, pass and catch a touchdown pass in the same season and the first since at least 1988 to throw multiple touchdown passes while scoring touchdowns via a run and a catch. Silmon rushed for 50 yards on 15 carries and one score. The effort moved him into fourth place in school history in rushing yards by a freshman with 260 yards. On the defensive end, junior defensive back Donnie Starks posted a career-high 11 tackles in the game, while sophomore defensive back Kaleb Prewett also set a career high with nine tackles of his own. Senior defensive end Marquel Bryant recorded a sack in the game, tying a career high with three sacks this season. Defensive tackle Will Geary also tied a career high with his sack in the game. K-State scored on its opening drive of the game with a 3-yard touchdown scamper by Cook, but Oklahoma State answered with a touchdown of their own on the next possession as quarterback Mason Rudolph connected with wide receiver James Washington for a 32-yard strike. Cook would give the Wildcats a 14-7 lead with a 1:25 left in the first quarter, connecting with Glenn Gronkowski for a 4-yard touchdown pass. The score was Gronkowski’s first of the season and the fifth touchdown of his career. The Cowboys opened the scoring in the second half on a 4-yard touchdown pass from reserve quarterback J.W. Walsh to wideout Jalen McCleskey. However, the Wildcats would block the extra point, preserving a 14-13 lead. K-State then pushed the lead back to eight points just three minutes later as Cook threw his second touchdown pass of the day – a 17-yard completion to Burton to give the Wildcats a 21-13 lead. The ‘Cats would then take advantage of a Cowboy turnover, scoring in one play on a Silmon run from the 6-yard line to give the Wildcats a 28-13 lead with 4:37 remaining in the second quarter. The lead was cut to eight with 46 seconds remaining in the half, as Oklahoma State took the ball 83 yards in 13 plays to set up a Marcel Ateman touchdown reception. Rudolph converted a pass to Ateman on 3rd-and-18 to keep the drive alive. OSU scored the only points of the third quarter, pulling within two points at the 7-minute mark off of a Raymond Taylor 1-yard touchdown run. Brandon Sheperd’s 3-yard touchdown reception gave Oklahoma State its first lead of the game at 33-28 with 6:06 remaining in the game.

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin connected with Josh Doctson for a 55-yard touchdown pass with 1:10 remaining in the game as the Horned Frogs defeated K-State, 52-45, in front of 53,671 fans at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. The Wildcats (3-2, 0-2 Big 12) saw most of its offensive production on the ground, rushing for 228 total yards on and scoring six rushing touchdowns. Junior quarterback Joe Hubener led all rushers with 111 yards on the ground and four rushing touchdowns, while Charles Jones added 75 yards and two touchdowns of his own. Junior Deante Burton led all Wildcat receivers with a career-high five catches for a career-high 65 yards. Fellow junior Kyle Klein also added a career-high 57 yards on a career-high four catches. On defense, the Wildcats were led by sophomore Elijah Lee, whose two interceptions were the first of his career. Sean Newlan and Donnie Starks each recorded five solo tackles in the game. TCU (6-0, 3-0 Big 12) wasted no time getting on the board, scoring on its first play from scrimmage as Aaron Green scampered for an 86-yard touchdown run 18 seconds into the game. K-State answered with a touchdown of its own on its first drive with a two-yard touchdown run by Hubener to tie the game at 7-7. Doctson’s 32-yard touchdown reception from Boykin would give the Frogs a 14-7 lead at the 7:46 mark of the first quarter, but Hubener punched in his second score of the night, a 17-yard run, to tie the game up at 14 apiece with 12:51 remaining in the second quarter. The Frogs regained the lead on their next drive as kicker Jaden Oberkrom connected on a 50-yard field goal to push the lead to 17-14, but K-State took its first lead of the game at the 6:56 mark of the second quarter as Jones scored on a career long 28-yard rush to give the Wildcats a 21-17 lead. After the defense forced a Boykin interception, Jones would score his second rushing touchdown of the night to extend the lead to 28-17. Later, a 12-yard TCU punt set up the Wildcats with great field position for a second-straight position and the Wildcats would capitalize, as Hubener rushed for his third touchdown to give the ‘Cats a 35-17 lead. TCU cut into the lead early in the second half as Derrick Kindred returned a Hubener interception 60 yards to push the score to 35-24, and the Frogs would score six minutes later to cut the lead to just four points as Green scored from eight yards out. The Wildcats scored their first points of the second half at the 12:21 mark in the fourth quarter as Hubener scored his fourth touchdown to give the ‘Cats a 42-31, but the back-and-forth game went on as Boykin answered with a touchdown of his own with 7:55 remaining in the game, taking the ball himself for a 14-yard touchdown run. TCU attempted a two-point conversion, but the try was no good, giving K-State a five point lead at 42-37. TCU regained the lead with just over six minutes remaining as Boykin scampered for a 69-yard score. A successful two-point conversion would give the Frogs a 45-42 lead. Place-kicker Jack Cantele tied the game at 45-45 with 1:47 remaining after he connected on a 37-yard field goal. However, TCU answered two plays later to seal the game as Boykin connected with Doctson on a 55-yard pass to give the Frogs a 52-45 lead with 1:10 left in the game.

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Kansas State had no answer for Oklahoma’s offense as the Sooners put up 568 total yards on their way to a 55-0 victory over the Wildcats in front of a sold-out Bill Snyder Family Stadium. The loss marked the first time the Wildcats have been shutout at home since the 1991 season. K-State’s offense struggled to get anything going in the game, putting up 110 total yards in the game. Quarterbacks Joe Hubener and Kody Cook went a combined 5-for-22 for 45 yards and three interceptions between the pair. Cook led all K-State rushers with 19 yards on the ground on 11 attempts. Junior Charles Jones led all running backs with 18 yards on five attempts. Overall, the Wildcats tallied 65 yards on the ground. Sophomore defensive back Sean Newlan led K-State with a career-high 14 tackles. Redshirt freshman Sam Sizelove also had a career day, adding a career-high eight tackles, six of which were solo tackles. Sophomore defensive tackle Will Geary also set three new careers with eight tackles, three tackles for loss and two sacks in the game. Quarterback Baker Mayfield led the Oklahoma offensive attack with five passing touchdowns on 20-of-27 attempts and 282 yards. Twelve different receivers caught passes led by Dede Westbrook’s five catches for 85 yards. Wide out Sterling Shepard had a pair of touchdown receptions on 83 yards receiving. Running back Joe Mixon had 73 yards on 15 carries to pace a Sooner rushing group that accumulated 232 yards on 30 carries. Oklahoma opened the scoring 64 seconds into the game, taking the ball 75 yards in five plays to take the early 7-0 lead as Mayfield connected with Shepard for a 22-yard touchdown pass. Mayfield was perfect on the drive, completing all four of his passes for 71 yards. The Sooners took advantage of good field position after a Hubener interception as Mixon caught a 10-yard pass from Mayfield to give the Sooners a 14-0 lead with nine minutes left in the first quarter. Mayfield threw his third touchdown pass three minutes into the second quarter, connecting with Shepard on a 28-yard pass to push the lead to 21-0. Oklahoma scored again with 7:29 remaining in the first half as wide receiver Mark Andrews caught a 3-yard pass from Mayfield, capping an 8-play, 58-yard drive to give Oklahoma a 28-0 advantage. Another Hubener interception led to a fifth OU touchdown after the Sooners took the ball 27 yards on five plays to extend their lead to 35-0. The score was Mayfield’s fifth touchdown pass of the half. Defensive back Zack Sanchez returned a Cook pass 38-yards to give the Sooners a 42-0 lead just 22 seconds into the second half. The interception was Sanchez’s second pick of the game. The Sooners tacked on three more points five minutes later as placekicker Austin Seibert connected on a field goal – a 20-yarder – to extend the lead to 45-0. A 36-yard pass from Mayfield to Westbrook set up the field goal attempt. Seibert added another field goal, this one from 19-yards, on the Sooners’ next drive to push the lead to 48-0. Oklahoma scored its final touchdown at the 9:44 mark of the fourth quarter, as Mixon scored the only rushing touchdown of the game to give the Sooners a 55-0 lead. The rush capped a 7:42 drive which went for 53 yards on 12 plays.

• Saturday’s game between Kansas State and Texas was the 16th meeting between the two teams as the Wildcats now hold a 9-7 advantage, but are just 3-6 in Austin... K-State dropped its fourth-straight game as the Wildcats are now in the midst of their first fourgame losing skid since a fivegame skid in 2008 and the first under head coach Bill Snyder since losing five-straight in 2005. • Kansas State has only scored nine total points in its last two games, the fewest in a two-game stretch since 2006 (6 points vs. Louisville, 3 points at Baylor). • Junior running back Charles Jones rushed 18 times for 122 yards... It was his first-career 100-yard rushing game and thus a new career high... His previous career best was 76 yards against UTEP on Sept. 27, 2014... It was the second time this season a K-State running back eclipsed the 100yard mark (Justin Silmon, 119 vs. Louisiana Tech) after no running back reached the mark in 2014. • Senior defensive tackle Travis Britz came away with a career-high nine tackles... He bettered his previous career high of seven last season against TCU... He also had a career-high 4.0 tackles for loss, the most by a Wildcat in a single game since Ian Campbell had 5.0 against Illinois State in 2006. • Senior cornerback Morgan Burns carded two tackles and a pass breakup... He now has at least one pass breakup in each of his last eight games played dating back to the 2014 season.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Kansas State’s rally from an early deficit fell short late in the second half, as Texas posted a 23-9 win on a rainy Saturday in front of 88,283 at DKR Texas-Memorial Stadium. The Wildcats were down 16-0 midway through the second quarter before scoring nine straight points, including a 7-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Joe Hubener to wide receiver Dominque Heath just before halftime, to close the gap. A fourth-quarter touchdown by the Longhorns put the game out of reach. Texas did its damage on the ground, rushing for 274 yards and three touchdowns, as running back Johnathan Gray had 103 yards on 18 carries. Backup quarterback Tyrone Swoopes scored all three of the Longhorns touchdowns on seven carries for 50 yards. Quarterback Jerrod Heard was 10-for-15 on the day for 99 yards. Heard also added 61 yards on the ground on 15 carries. Kansas State doubled its offensive production from last week, putting up 242 total yards, including 135 yards on the ground. Running back Charles Jones led all rushers with career-high 122 total yards on 18 attempts. It was Jones’ first 100-yard game of his career. Hubener went 10-for-22 on the day for 97 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Backup quarterback Kody Cook was 1-for-2 in the game for 10 yards. Deante Burton led all Wildcat receivers with 39 yards. Heath added 23 yards on two receptions, including the Wildcats’ only touchdown of the game. On defense, senior defensive end Travis Britz set a new career highs with nine tackles and four tackles for loss. The four tackles for loss are the most by a Wildcat in a single game since 2006. Redshirt freshman Kendall Adams recorded a career-high seven tackles in his first career start. Texas scored on its opening possession of the game, taking the ball 42 yards on 15 plays to set up a 28-yard field goal from Nick Rose to give the Longhorns a 3-0 lead. All 42 yards on the drive came on the ground to set up the field goal. The Longhorns strung together another long drive on their next possession as Swoopes scored from 1-yard out, capping a 13-play, 80-yard drive to extend the lead to 10-0. D’Onta Foreman rushed for 28 yards, including a 15-yard run, to set up the score. Swoopes scored his second touchdown of the day from two yards out on Texas’ third possession, but a failed rush gave the Longhorns a 16-0 lead. The play was highlighted by a 46-yard scamper by Gray, who went for 63 yards on the drive. K-State scored its first points of the game with 32 seconds remaining in the first half as a Hubener connected with Heath on a 7-yard touchdown pass. Despite an unsuccessful two-point conversion, the Wildcats pulled within 10 points of the Longhorns at 16-6 at halftime. The Wildcats pulled even closer in the third quarter, as placekicker Jack Cantele connected on a 36-yard field goal to make the score 16-9. Jones rushed 26 of the drives 44 yards to set up the field goal. Texas scored the only points of the fourth quarter, as Swoopes punched it in from 10 yards out for his third score of the game to seal the victory. Swoopes accounted for all 52 yards on the 3-play drive.

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Kansas State rallied for 14 points in the fourth quarter to pull within a touchdown, but a late interception helped No. 2/2 Baylor hold on for a 31-24 win in front of a sold-out Bill Snyder Family Stadium. The 31 points were the fewest scored by the Bear offense since scoring 27 at West Virginia during the 2014 season. Baylor true freshman quarterback Jarret Stidham led the way for the Bears in his first-career start, going 23-for-33 for 419 yards and three touchdowns. Stidham also added a score on the ground. Wide receiver Corey Coleman recorded 216 receiving yards and two touchdowns. K-State quarterback Joe Hubener led the way for the Wildcats, rushing for a career-high 153 yards on a career-high 29 attempts with two touchdowns. He also added 151 yards through the air, going 12-for-21 with a touchdown pass. Wide-out Kody Cook also had a career night receiving, leading all Wildcat wide receivers with a career-high 71 yards on a career-high six catches. Sophomore Sean Newlan led all Wildcat defenders with nine tackles. Junior linebacker Will Davis recorded his first sack, in the first half, while fellow junior Donnie Starks posted a career-high two pass breakups. Baylor opened the scoring on its opening drive, capping off a seven-play, 81-yard drive in 1:46 with a one-yard touchdown run by Stidham to give the Bears a 7-0 lead. The 1-yard touchdown run was the first score of the true freshman’s career. The Wildcats answered with a touchdown on the next drive as Hubener scored from a yard out to tie the game at 7-7. The drive went for 88 yards on 17 plays and was highlighted by two successful fourth-down conversions to keep the drive alive. It was also the longest drive in terms of time since a 9 minute, 54 second touchdown drive against Washington in the 1999 Holiday Bowl. Stidham threw his first career touchdown pass four plays later, connecting with K.D. Cannon on a 55-yard touchdown pass to extend the lead to 14-7, and the Bears wasted no time after a Hubener interception as Stidham connected with Coleman on an 81-yard touchdown pass at the 7:06 mark of the second quarter. K-State scored on its opening drive of the second half as placekicker Jack Cantele connected on a 36-yard field goal to cut the lead to 11 at 21-10. Coleman scored his second touchdown of the night for the Bears on a 3-yard pass from Stidham to give Baylor a 28-10 lead with 5:10 remaining in the third quarter, and BU extended its lead to 31-10 with 12:20 remaining in the fourth quarter as placekicker Chris Callahan hit a 39-yard field goal. Hubener scored his eighth rushing touchdown of the season to pull the Wildcats within 14 points at 31-17 as the quarterback took the ball 34 yards for the score with 9:47 remaining in the game. The 34-yard rush was the longest of Hubener’s career. The Wildcats scored a touchdown on their next possession as Hubener hooked up with Deante Burton for a 10-yard touchdown pass with 4:07 left in the game to push the score to 31-24. Fullback Winston Dimel’s 46-yard reception highlighted the scoring drive for the Wildcats.

• The kickoff-return touchdown by Morgan Burns was the fifth non-offensive touchdown by K-State in its last four trips to Texas Tech... In 2009, Jeffrey Fitzgerald returned an interception 17 yards for a touchdown... In 2011, Nigel Malone returned an interception 24 yards for a touchdown and Tyler Lockett returned a kickoff 100 yards to paydirt... In 2013, Ty Zimmerman picked off a pass and returned it 43 yards for a score. • Senior wide receiver Kyle Klein hauled in six passes for 131 yards, which featured a 35-yard reception... It was a new career high in all three categories... His previous career highs were four receptions for 57 yards, including a long of 25, against TCU on October 10... It was the first 100-yard receiving game by a Wildcat this season. • Senior Morgan Burns returned seven kickoffs for a school-record 221 yards and one touchdown... He took Texas Tech’s first kickoff 93 yards for a score... His 221 yards broke the school record held by Aubrey Quarles at North Texas in 2010 (197)... It was the most kickoff-return yards in the Big 12 since Texas’ Fozzy Whittaker had 252 yards against Oklahoma State in 2011... He moved into fifth place in school history in career kickoff-return yards (1,112) after entering the game in ninth place, while he entered the top-10 list for kickoff-return yards for a season as he is now fourth (678). • Burns’ kickoff-return TD was the second this season and the third of his career... He moved into a tie for second place in school history for a season and into sole possession of third place for a career.

LUBBOCK, Texas -- Kansas State pulled within one possession late in the fourth quarter, but it was not enough as the Wildcats fell to Texas Tech, 59-44, at Jones AT&T Stadium. The setback extended the Wildcats’ losing streak to six games, the longest since dropping seven straight in 1989. Down 28-7 after one quarter of action, K-State rallied to within 52-44 with 3:38 remaining in the contest behind quarterback Joe Hubener’s three touchdown runs. However, Texas Tech was able to recover the on-side kick before scoring for the final time with 1:02 to play. Hubener had a productive afternoon, throwing for 289 yards on 19-of-40 passing and two touchdowns to go with his three scores on the ground. Running back Charles Jones fell one yard short of a 100-yard day, rushing for 99 yards, as he became the 27th player in school history with 1,000 career rushing yards. Receiver Kyle Klein posted the first 100-yard receiving day for the Wildcats, catching a career-high six passes for a career-high 131 yards. Wide out Dominique Heath’s 6-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter moved him into fourth place in school history in receptions (22) and yards (267) by a freshman. On defense, sophomore defensive back Kaleb Prewett set a career high in tackles with 12, three more than his previous career high set against Oklahoma State on Oct. 3. Fellow sophomore Will Geary recorded his second-career forced fumble and recovered his first fumble of his career. Elijah Lee recorded 11 tackles, including a sack. Texas Tech sophomore quarterback Patrick Mahomes completed 33-of-42 passes for three touchdowns and added 14 yards on the ground for one touchdown. Senior running back DeAndre Washington had a career day, rushing for a career-high 248 yards for a career-high three touchdowns. The 658 yards of total offense tallied by the Red Raiders was the most by a Wildcat opponent since 2011. Texas Tech opened the scoring less than three minutes into the game, as Mahomes connected with Justin Stockton for a 17-yard touchdown pass. On the ensuing kickoff, the Wildcats used strong downfield blocking to open up a hole for Morgan Burns, who returned the kick 93 yards for a touchdown to tie the game at 7-7. But Tech fired back with 21-straight points to take a 28-7 lead after the first quarter, the most points allowed in a quarter by the Wildcat defense since 2008, and K-State played catch up for the rest of the game.

• K-State has now won each of the last eight games and 22 of the last 26 meetings dating back to 1990... It was also Bill Snyder’s 20th win in 24 tries against Iowa State, the most wins by a current FBS head coach over one opponent. • The 21-point deficit overcome by the Wildcats ties for the biggest comeback in school history, a feat accomplished three other times... The last time a Wildcat team overcame a 21-point deficit was at Missouri on Nov. 6, 2004. • The reigning Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week, senior Morgan Burns returned four kickoffs for 168 yards and one touchdown on a 100-yard return... It was his third return touchdown this year to rank second place in school history, while he now has four in his career to tie for second... It was the first time in school history a player recorded a pair of 100yard returns in one season... It was also the first time since Tyler Lockett in 2011 (Texas Tech and Kansas) a Wildcat returned a kickoff for a touchdown in consecutive games. • Junior fullback Glenn Gronkowski threw a four-yard touchdown pass to Winston Dimel in the first quarter... It was the Wildcats’ first TD pass by a non-quarterback since Daniel Thomas threw a 67yard pass to Aubrey Quarles at Baylor in 2010. • Running back Charles Jones rushed 15 times for 65 yards and two touchdowns... Jones has accounted for 455 of his season total 542 rushing yards in his last six games (83.9 percent of season total).

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Kansas State scored 10 points, including a game-winning Jack Cantele 42-yard field goal, in the final 42 seconds of the game to cap a 21-point comeback as the Wildcats defeated the Iowa State Cyclones, 38-35, in front of 53,297 fans at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. K-State, which was down 35-14 at halftime, tied the school record for largest comeback victory, the last coming at Missouri on Nov. 6, 2004, after trailing the Tigers 21-0 in the second quarter. The win snapped a six-game losing streak by K-State (4-6, 1-6 Big 12), the school’s longest skid since 1989. Joe Hubener threw for 216 yards on 18-of-31 passing and one touchdown to go with 90 yards on 20 attempts. Junior Charles Jones carried the ball 15 times for 65 yards, including two TDs. Kody Cook led all Wildcat receivers with 68 yards on five catches, while fellow wide-out Dominque Heath caught five passes for 31 yards. On defense, redshirt freshman Kendall Adams recorded a career-high 12 tackles and his first career sack. Linebacker Charmeachealle Moore also added double-digit tackles with 10, as well as a sack. Jordan Willis forced two fumbles during the game, while Will Geary and Marquel Bryant each forced one as the Wildcats forced four of Iowa State’s eight fumbles. Iowa State (3-8, 3-6 Big 12) opened the scoring as QB Joel Lanning connected with Trever Ryen on a 21-yard touchdown pass, but K-State answered on the next drive with a 4-yard touchdown pass from fullback Glenn Gronkowski to fellow fullback Winston Dimel to tie the game, 7-7. The Cyclones took advantage of good field position after a Wildcat fumble on the 4-yard line, as Lanning scored on a 1-yard rush on 4th-and-goal to push the Cyclone lead to 14-7. Lanning threw his second touchdown of the day on Iowa State’s next possession, hitting Lazard on a 30-yard score, but reigning Big 12 Special Teams Play of the Week honoree Morgan Burns quickly answered as he returned the ensuing kickoff 100 yards to cut the lead to 21-14. The score was Burns’ third return touchdown this year, while he became the first player with two 100-yard returns in a year. Iowa State answered two plays later when tailback Mike Warren broke out for a 76-yard touchdown run to push the lead to 28-14 with 7:34 remaining before halftime, and ISU extended the lead to 35-14 just 29 seconds before halftime as Lanning hooked up with Lazard on a 16-yard scoring strike. K-State opened the second half by marching 67 yards in just over six minutes on 12 plays to set up an 8-yard run by Jones to cut the lead to 35-21 with 8:49 in the third quarter. Hubener threw his first touchdown pass of the day on the Wildcats’ next drive, connecting with Cook on a 7-yard pass to pull within 35-28. As ISU attempted to run out the clock with 1:31 remaining in the contest, the K-State defense came up with a big play as Geary forced Warren to fumble with Elijah Lee recovering at the K-State 45. On the next play, Hubener connected with receiver Andre Davis for 42 yards to put the Wildcats at the Iowa State 13, while Jones tied the game up at 35-all with 42 seconds remaining on his second rushing touchdown of the day from 5 yards out. With just 40 seconds remaining and the game headed to a likely overtime, the defense again came up with a big play as Bryant forced Lanning to fumble which was recovered by Charmeachealle Moore at the Iowa State 22 with just 10 seconds left on the clock. Two plays later, Cantele connected from 42 yards out for the win.

Kansas answered on its next possession, capping a 6-play, 79-yard drive with a 27-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Ryan Willis to receiver Tre’ Parmalee to tie the game at 7-7.

• K-State finished the regular season with a 6-6 mark, qualifying for a bowl game for the sixth-straight season and the 17th under head coach Bill Snyder... They became just the sixth Power 5 team in the 12game schedule era (2006) – including the first Big 12 team – to stave off bowl elimination in at least three-straight games (2-6 or 3-6 records). • Junior wide receiver Deante Burton carded 5 catches for a career-high 135 yards and one touchdown... It bettered his previous career high in yards, which was 65 yards earlier this year against TCU... It was the Wildcats’ second 100-yard receiving game this year (Kyle Klein, 131 yards at Texas Tech). • Three-time Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week Morgan Burns returned three kickoffs for 201 yards, which included a 97-yard touchdown return in the fourth quarter... It was his fourth kickoff-return score of the year and the fifth of his career as he tied both the K-State and Big 12 records... His 201 kickoff return yards today rank second in school history for a game behind his record-setting 221 yards at Texas Tech earlier this season... He now has 1,481 career kickoff-return yards in his career, moving into third place in school history... Burns also blocked a West Virginia punt a week after recovering a blocked punt for a touchdown at Kansas. • Linebacker Charmeachealle Moore set career highs in tackles (17), tackles for loss (4.0) and sacks (2.0)... His previous high in tackles was 10 two weeks ago against Iowa State, while his previous best in both TFLs and sacks was 1.0 on three occasions.

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- K-State rallied from a 13-3 deficit with 21 second-half points en route to posting its sixth win of the season in a 24-23 victory over West Virginia before a sold-out crowd at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. With the victory, K-State became the sixth team -- the first from the Big 12 -- in the 12-game schedule era to stave off bowl elimination in three or more games. Senior Morgan Burns’ 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown with 12:53 remaining in the fourth quarter proved to be the difference, as the Wildcats overcame a 13-3 halftime deficit. The return was Burns’ fourth of the season, which tied former Wildcat Brandon Banks (2009) for both the school and Big 12 records. Burns finished with 201 kickoff return yards, which ranks second in school history behind a record 221-yard effort earlier this year. Burns now has five career kickoff returns, which also ties the school and Big 12 history for most in a career. Senior Kody Cook started the game at wide receiver, but moved to quarterback after starter Joe Hubener left the game with an injury. Cook finished the game with 121 yards through the air on 4-of12 passing and one touchdown, while rushing for 34 yards on 19 attempts and a touchdown. Junior wide receiver Deante Burton led all Wildcat receivers with a career-high 135 yards on five receptions, including a 77-yard touchdown reception from Cook, which is the longest play from scrimmage this season. Junior linebacker Charmeachealle Moore set career highs in tackles (17), tackles for loss (4.0) and sacks (2.0). Senior safety Nate Jackson tacked on nine tackles of his own, while fellow safety Kendall Adams added six. West Virginia opened the scoring with 2:54 remaining in the first quarter as placekicker Josh Lambert hit a 45-yard field goal to give the Mountaineers a 3-0 lead, but K-State answered with a field goal at the 11:10 mark of the second quarter as kicker Matthew McCrane connected on a 40-yard field goal to cap a 5-play, 25-yard drive and tie the game at 3-3. The Mountaineers scored the game’s first touchdown with 2:36 remaining before halftime as quarterback Skyler Howard hit Jovon Durante on a 24-yard pass to push the lead to 10-3. Howard was a perfect 2-of-2 passing for 35 yards on the scoring drive. Lambert hit is second field goal of the half – a 19-yarder – to extend the Mountaineer lead to 13-3 as time expired in the second quarter. The drive was highlighted by a 19-yard rush by running back Rushel Shell. The Wildcats took advantage of good field position set up by a 67-yard kick return by Burns as Cook scored from 1-yard out to pull the Wildcats within 13-10 at the 12:28 mark in the third quarter. After the Wildcat defense forced a Mountaineer three-and-out, Cook hit Burton on a 77-yard pass on the first play of the drive to give the Wildcats a 17-13 lead. The pass marked the longest play of the season for the Wildcats. West Virginia retook the lead with 6:28 remaining in the third quarter as Smallwood rushed from 14 yards out to give the Mountaineers a 20-17 lead. The Mountaineers tacked on another field goal to push the lead to 23-17 with 13:07 left to play, but Burns returned the ensuing kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown to give the Wildcats a 24-23 lead with 12:53 left in the game.

• Head coach Jim Dickey elected to redshirt eight seniors during the 1981 season and the move paid off in 1982 as the Wildcats were selected to play in their first ever bowl game. • The bowl bid wasn’t secured until the final game of the season when K-State pounded Colorado, 33-10, to cap a 6-4-1 season and earn an invitation from bowl representatives in the locker room following the win.

K-STATE FALLS IN 1982 INDEPENDENCE BOWL 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-perhour 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.

• The biggest win of the season came against in-state rival KU when the Wildcats won, 36-7, in the program’s first televised night contest... It was the biggest win over the Jayhawks in 27 years. • Darrell Ray Dickey attempted 35 passes in the 1982 Independence Bowl, a mark that still ranks second in K-State bowl history and sixth in a career. • Punter Scott Fulhage, whose son D.J. would later punt for KState, punted eight times in the game to rank second in Wildcat bowl history.

WILDCATS WIN FIRST-EVER BOWL GAME 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 35-yard 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 22-yard 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. AllAmerican 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 Edwards 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.

• The bowl game in Hawaii was K-State’s second game away from the continential United States in two years as the Wildcats played Nebraska in Tokyo, Japan, in 1992.

BC WINS DEFENSIVE BATTLE IN ALOHA BOWL 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 performances 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’s blocked punt is one of only five blocked kicks in Kansas State’s bowl history, but is the only punt to be blocked by the Wildcats... The block kick led to K-State’s lone score of the game when Chris Sublette recovered the ball in the end zone. • The seven points scored by KState were the fewest in its bowl history until the Wildcats only scored three against Syracuse in the 2001 Insight.com Bowl... Additionally, the 124 yards of total offense are the fewest in K-State bowl history. • Chad May’s 31 pass attempts are tied for the third most in Wildcat bowl history. • May finished his prolific twoyear career in the Aloha Bowl, setting numerous school passing records, including singlegame passing yardage (489 vs. Nebraska) and second on the school’s career passing yardage chart behind Lynn Dickey (6,208).

• The victory gave Kansas State its first 10-win season since 1910... The victory also put KState in an exclusive group of only seven Division I-A programs that won at least nine games in threestraight season.

KAVANAGH COMES OFF BENCH TO LEAD CATS 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.

• Kansas State finished the season ranked sixth in the coaches’ poll and seventh in the Associated Press poll. • Kansas State’s 54 points and 536 total yards in the 1995 Holiday Bowl remain the school’s bowl records. • Quarterback Brian Kavanagh came off the bench to replace starter Matt Miller and went on to throw for 242 yards and four touchdowns en route to offensive MVP honors... Kavanagh would later be named to the Holiday Bowl Hall of Fame. • Defensive MVP honors went to free safety Mario Smith, who had four tackles and intercepted two passes... He is tied for the K-State bowl record and tied for sixth overall in K-State history for single-game interceptions... The two picks also tied a Holiday Bowl record.

• Cotton Bowl officials estimated that K-State fans purchased some 40,000-plus tickets, passing the previous record held by Texas Tech in 1995... Tech’s total of 28,232 was surpassed by the Wildcat fans in just a 72-hour period in early December when KState was tabbed as a participant.

BYU SCORES 14 IN FOURTH FOR COMEBACK WIN 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 72-yard 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 8-5 lead heading into halftime. K-State scored its second touchdown of the game when Lockett bounced off tacklers following a reception on a short slant pattern and raced 72 yards down the left sideline.

• K-State continued its streak of scoring in every bowl game, dating back to a first-ever appearance in the 1982 Independence Bowl against Wisconsin. • The 1996 senior class finished with its fourth-consecutive season with at least nine victories and its fourth-straight bowl appearance... The seniors compiled a home record of 21-3-1 and an impressive 37-10-1 overall mark, which included a 2-2 bowl record... No other group had put together such an impressive string of bowl appearances, home record and overall record in the 101 years of K-State football. • K-State fell for the first time when senior quarterback Brian Kavanagh threw at least one touchdown pass, breaking a streak of eight-straight wins. • Kavanagh’s 72-yard touchdown pass to Kevin Lockett was a career best for both players and was also a K-State bowl record... It was the seventh-longest TD pass in Cotton Bowl history.

BISHOP TOSSES 4 TD PASSES IN FIESTA BOWL WIN TEMPE, Ariz. -- Kansas State capped its best season in school history with a 35-18 win over 14th-ranked Syracuse, the Big East champion.

• The Wildcats held the Boilermakers to only 235 yards of total offense, the second fewest by an opponent in K-State bowl history. • K-State did not score in the first quarter for the first time all season.

PURDUE DRIVES 80 YARDS FOR LAST-MINUTE WIN 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, K-State saw its hopes dashed when Bishop was intercepted to end the game.

• The Wildcats suffered consecutive losses for the first time since 1994. • Kansas State and Purdue combined for seven interceptions, the most ever in a K-State bowl game. • Michael Bishop’s 88-yard touchdown pass to Darnell McDonald in the fourth quarter was an Alamo Bowl record... Bishop’s three touchdown passes are tied for third in K-State bowl history, but his four interceptions are a record. • Darnell McDonald hauled in five receptions for 124 yards and two touchdowns... It was the Wildcats’ fifth 100-yard receiving game in bowl history at the time, while his two touchdowns are tied for the second most. • Frank Murphy set a K-State bowl record with 107 kickoff-return yards, a mark that still ranks first to this day.

CATS MARCH 92 YARDS IN FOURTH FOR GAME WINNER 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 eight-play drive. Anderson hit on his second of two first-half 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.

• Kansas State improved to 2-0 in the Holiday Bowl following a 54-21 win over Colorado State in 1995. • Jonathan Beasley threw for 216 yards on 15-of-31 aim while rushing 20 times for 48 yards and three touchdowns... His three rushing touchdowns set a Kansas State bowl game record while carding offensive MVP honors. • Darren Howard was named the game’s defensive MVP after carding nine tackles, including five tackles for loss and three sacks. • All-America linebacker and future College Football Hall of Famer Mark Simoneau finished his Wildcat career with eight tackles, including three TFLs and a sack.

• K-State made its 10th bowl appearance, while it was the ninthstraight postseason appearance... K-State is one of only seven schools to appear in a bowl game each of the last nine years.

K-STATE SHUT OUT FINAL THREE QUARTERS IN LOSS 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 47-yard 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 extrapoint 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.

• The Insight.com Bowl marked the third time that K-State played a bowl game in Arizona, falling to 2-1. • Kansas State was held to a season-low 33 rushing yards on 34 carries... It marked just the second time in 2001 the Wildcats were held to less than 100 yards (74 vs. Colorado)... It was the second-lowest rushing output by K-State in a bowl game (-61 vs. Boston College in the 1994 Aloha Bowl). • The Wildcats held Syracuse to only eight first downs and 222 yards of total offense... It was the lowest number of first downs allowed by K-State in a bowl game, surpassing the previous mark of 12 against Tennessee in the 2001 Cotton Bowl. • The 222 yards allowed by the Wildcat defense was the sixth time during the 2001 season KState allowed less than 222 yards of total offense.

ROBERSON FINDS EVANS ON FINAL DRIVE FOR WIN 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 80-yard 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.

COMEBACK FALLS SHORT IN CATS’ FIRST BCS GAME 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.

RUTGERS TOO MUCH IN INAUGURAL TEXAS BOWL 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 37-10 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 defense 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.

K-STATE FALLS LATE IN FIRST PINSTRIPE BOWL BRONX, N.Y. -- 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 touchdowns, 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.

• Despite the loss, K-State still had a 10-win season for just the ninth time in school history, including the eighth under Bill Snyder... It was the first season with at least 10 wins since 2003. • The announced attendance was 80,956, the largest for a K-State bowl game... Of that announced attendance, approximately 35,000 were K-State fans, which tied for the fourth most for a bowl game in school history. • Collin Klein notched his 15th career start under center, going 16-of-30 through the air for 173 yards and a touchdown... He also rushed 24 times for 42 yards and a score... His rushing touchdown gave him 27 this season, which tied the Big 12 (Texas’ Ricky Williams in 1998) and FBS quarterback (Navy’s Ricky Dobbs in 2009) single-season records... He finished the year with 317 rushing attempts, which were the most in school history... Klein’s rushing yardage total in 2011 (1,141) ranked seventh in school history. • Arthur Brown recorded six tackles, giving him 101 on the year... He was the first Wildcat with a 100-tackle season since Brandon Archer had 106 in 2006. • Raphael Guidry blocked his fifth kick of 2011, which set a new single-season school record... His five blocked kicks are also the school’s career record... His blocked PAT led to K-State’s first defensive extra point in nearly 10 years.

CATS COME UP SHORT IN COTTON BOWL LOSS ARLINGTON, Texas -- Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein tied the Big 12 singleseason for rushing touchdowns and the NCAA single season record by a quarterback but the No. 8 Wildcats came up short in the 2012 AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic in a 29-16 loss to No. 6 Arkansas. Kansas State (10-3) was trying to match its school record with 11 victories, but still finished a surprising season in Bill Snyder’s second Wildcat turnaround. K-State won 11 games six times during a seven-year span in Snyder’s first tenure before his three-year retirement, and almost reached that mark again in his third season back. After being held to 15 yards on 12 carries in the first half, Klein finished the opening drive of the third quarter with a 6-yard TD run that got the Wildcats to 19-16. That came after Klein had a 15-yard run on the previous play. That matched the Big 12 record for rushing touchdowns held by 1998 Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams of Texas. The only other FBS quarterback with 27 rushing touchdowns in a season was Ricky Dobbs for Navy in 2009. Klein finished with 42 yards on 24 carries, while completing 16 of 30 passes for 173 yards. Arkansas’ Tyler Wilson was 20 of 31 for 216 yards. Jarius Wright had three catches for 88 yards and a 45-yard touchdown. The Cotton Bowl was the only non-BCS game with both teams in the top 10 of the Bowl Championship Series standings -- Arkansas came in sixth, Kansas State eighth. It also is the only bowl featuring the SEC vs. the Big 12, the top two conferences in the BCS computer rankings. The Razorbacks didn’t even get a first down until 12 1/2 minutes left in the first half when Dennis Johnson opened a drive with a 28-yard run. That drive ended with the second of Zach Hocker’s three field goals, a 22-yarder. K-State blocked the extra point and Nigel Malone returned it for two points. It was 19-9 at halftime after Klein threw a 3-yard TD pass to Andrew McDonald with 26 seconds left in the first half. That score was set up after Wilson was sacked by Adam Davis and fumbled at the Hogs’ 13.

OREGON WINS BATTLE OF TOP-10 TEAMS GLENDALE, Ariz. -- De’Anthony Thomas caught the opening kickoff, raced past Oregon’s sideline and leaned his head into the end zone like a sprinter crossing the finish line. The track meet had started and the fifth-ranked Ducks didn’t look back after that. Triggered by the return, Oregon bolted by No. 7 Kansas State, 35-17. Teams that had that national title aspirations end on the same day, Oregon and Kansas State ended up in the desert for a marquee matchup billed as a battle of styles: The fast-flying Ducks vs. the execution-is-everything Wildcats. Thomas followed his kickoff return with a 23-yard touchdown catch, finishing with 195 total yards. Kenjon Barner ran for 143 yards on 31 carries and scored on a 24-yard touchdown pass from Marcus Mariota in the second quarter. Mariota later scored on a 2-yard run in the third quarter, capped by an obscure 1-point safety that went in the Ducks’ favor. Even Oregon’s defense got into the act, intercepting Collin Klein twice and holding him to 30 yards on 13 carries. Thomas hit the Wildcats (11-2) again late in the first quarter, breaking a couple of tackles and dragging three defenders into the end zone for a catch-and-run TD that put the Ducks up 15-0. Oregon followed a missed 40-yard field goal with a scoring drive late in the second quarter. Moving 77 yards in 46 seconds, the Ducks went up 22-10 at halftime after Mariota hit Barner on 24-yard TD pass. Alejandro Maldonado hit a 33-yard field goal on Oregon’s opening drive of the third quarter and Mariota capped a long drive with a 2-yard TD run. Kansas State’s Javonta Boyd blocked the point-after attempt, but even that went wrong for the Wildcats: Chris Harper was tackled in the end zone for a bizarre 1-point safety that put Oregon up 32-10. Kansas State needed a little time to get its wheels spinning on offense, laboring early before Klein scored on a 6-yard run early in the second quarter. Klein kept the Wildcats moving in the quarter, though not toward touchdowns: Cantele hit a 25-yard field goal. Klein hit John Hubert on a 10-yard touchdown pass early in the fourth quarter, but all that did was cut Oregon’s lead down to 32-17.

WILDCATS EARN FIRST BOWL WIN SINCE 2002 TEMPE, Ariz. -- Jake Waters threw for 271 yards and connected with Tyler Lockett on three touchdowns, leading Kansas State to its first bowl victory in 11 years, 31-14 over Michigan in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl. Kansas State (8-5) scored on its first three possessions, all touchdown passes from Waters to Lockett, and its defense dominated Michigan to end a five-game bowl losing streak. Lockett set a school bowl record with 10 catches for 116 yards and Waters completed 21 of 27 passes, sending the Wildcats to their first bowl victory since the 2002 Holiday Bowl. Michigan freshman Shane Morris was steady in place of injured starter Devin Gardner, leading Michigan (7-6) on two early scoring drives. The Wolverines settled for field goals on both and did little the rest of the way, finishing with 261 total yards. Morris threw for 196 yards on 24-of-38 passing with an interception before leading Michigan on a late scoring drive with the game out of reach. Michigan’s defense also had trouble stopping Kansas State most of the night, giving up 420 total yards. Kansas State finished the season strong after some early difficulties but won five of its final six games while scoring at least 31 points in each contest. K-State set the tone on its opening drive, grinding out 75 yards in 15 plays and 7:51 off the clock. Lockett capped it with a 6-yard touchdown catch after the Wildcats’ line gave Waters just enough time to get the throw off against Michigan’s blitz. Lockett set up the next drive with a 40-yard kickoff return and capped with a 29-yard touchdown catch. Kansas State raced down the field again on its next drive, setting up Lockett’s third touchdown, an 8-yarder from Waters that put the Wildcats up 21-6 at halftime. Kansas State’s Ian Patterson hit a 22-yard field goal in the fourth quarter, John Hubert scored on a 1-yard run after Morris’ interception and the Wildcats celebrated Bill Snyder’s seventh bowl victory by chasing the 74-year-old coach down the sideline for a water-bucket dump.
