16 GOALS FOR SUCCESS Bill Snyder has been a constant to the Kansas State football program from 1989 through 2005, and again from 2009 to the present. But within that constant have come 16 other principles that have formed the foundation of the K-State football family, and the life beyond those years of eligibility. The 16 goals form the foundation for success, and create the work ethic and discipline that go with them. With players and coaches from all backgrounds, having a single set of core values unifies them under one vision. If each adheres to the goals as individuals, then team success will follow. Snyder believes the 16 goals are not only critical to success on the field, but also in everyday life. Once someone has dedicated themself to doing things the right way, the chance of success both on and off the field is dramatically increased.

NATIONAL EXPOSURE Kansas State student-athletes have regularly been among the most decorated and publicized in all of college football with multiple national award winners and weekly nationally televised games. In fact, K-State has had all 52 games over the last four years shown to a national or global audience, including 10 on ESPN and six on FOX. The 2012 season saw increased exposure as quarterback Collin Klein was a Heisman Trophy finalist and winner of the prestigious Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, while linebacker Arthur Brown was a finalist for the Lott IMPACT Trophy and former Wildcat great Mark Simoneau was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. Consensus All-American Tyler Lockett was featured in New York City as a National Scholar-Athlete in 2014, and the program from the Little Apple will be prominently displayed in the Big Apple once again when head coach Bill Snyder will be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2015.

K-StateHD.TV is the most-watched subscription platform in college athletics. In addition to nearly 200 other live games and events, the Wildcats’ season opener against South Dakota will be televised globally on K-StateHD.TV. The national spotlight will be on K-State and Manhattan on Thursday, November 5, as the Wildcats host 2014 top-10 team Baylor in a national telecast on FOX Sports 1.

RING OF HONOR DISTINGUISHING THEMSELVES ON AND OFF THE FIELD K-State started a new tradition in 2002 as the football program announced the inaugural Ring of Honor class. The distinction is designed to recognize those in the football program who have distinguished themselves on and off the field at the highest level. The inaugural class in 2002 consisted of six players, while four more were inducted in 2008. This season, KState will put four more players into the Ring of Honor prior to the home opener against South Dakota. Selection into the Ring of Honor is at the discretion of the Director of Athletics upon recommendations of the Head Football Coach and with final approval from the K-State Athletics, Inc. Board. In determining candidates, the Head Football Coach and Director of Athletics shall consider categories such as quality of character, whether a person has achieved performance that warrants consensus AllAmerica level status at Kansas State University or performed at a program-transformational level that warrants consideration. The student-athlete also has to be at least five year out of school.

EXCEPTIONAL COACHING IT’S MORE THAN JUST A JOB... At K-State, players are coached and taught life lessons by people that are not just there for the job... it is a place they call home. For a community and institution that is as tight-knit as Manhattan and Kansas State, it’s no surprise that K-State is at the top of the list for graduates coaching at their schools. Half of K-State’s 10 full-time coaches played at and graduated from Kansas State, a figure that is tops among programs in Power 5 Conferences. A span of 30 years of graduates, from Mo Latimore in 1976 to Blake Seiler in 2006 and Dana Dimel, Sean Snyder and Andre Coleman in between, these five coaches take extra pride in the success of K-State Football.

In addition to the five full-time coaches that are K-State graduates, three graduate assistants - Zach Hanson, Ben Kall and Collin Klein - also obtained their degrees from Kansas State. Hanson was an All-Big 12 offensive tackle for the Wildcats’ in 2011, Kall was a member of the 2012 Big 12 Championship team, while Klein was a Heisman Trophy finalist in 2012.

STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING MAXIMIZING ON-FIELD PERFORMANCE Under the guidance of Director of Strength and Conditioning Chris Dawson (left) and assistant strength coaches Darren Honeycutt, Corey Meredith, Kevin Schadt and Joe Cronn, the K-State strength and conditioning program is committed to maximizing the on-field performance of every student-athlete. The program, designed by Dawson, combines weight training, plyometrics, stretching and flexibility exercises, running and proper nutrition to enhance each student-athlete’s ability to compete. Dawson is a 20year veteran of the strength training and conditioning field and in 2007 was named the National Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coach of the Year by the Professional Football Strength and Conditioning Coaches Society.

PROPER NUTRITION Maximizing on-field potential is more than just lifting weights and running; it’s also ensuring that each student-athlete is benefitting from a nutritional and dietary program specific to their needs. Under the direction of K-State’s first full-time sports nutritionist, Scott Trausch, K-State football players receive performance fueling strategies, team and individual nutrition education, hydration and body composition testing. Trausch works with Chef Pedro Lozada at the new Ahearn Fund Student-Athlete Performance Table in the West Stadium Center to coordinate nutritious meals for all K-State student-athletes.

TOP-NOTCH FACILITIES The 250,00 square foot West Stadium Center at Bill Snyder Family Stadium opened in Fall 2013 and is a first-class facility that impacts the daily experience of 450 student-athletes in 16 sports who proudly represent K-State. The West Stadium Center also enhances the gameday experience for all 50,000 K-State fans as we cheer for another Wildcat Victory. The West Stadium Center features amenities for all fans at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. New concessions, restrooms and ticket offices replaced the previous west side facilities, which were originally built in 1968. Additionally, a new Fan Store and Hall of Honor is included on the main Concourse Level. In addition to being a first-class facility for K-State student-athletes and fans, the West Stadium Center at Bill Snyder Family Stadium also serves as the northwest gateway to campus and a rallying point for the University’s visionary “K-State 2025” plan. The structure makes a statement to the Big 12 Conference, the nation and prospective student-athletes that K-State is committed to competing at the highest level of intercollegiate athletics. The Terrace Level features the Ahearn Fund StudentAthlete Performance Table to serve the daily dietary needs of all K-State student-athletes. The Tailgate Terrace is a great place to enjoy the unique tailgating atmosphere of a K-State gameday. K-State Football is housed in an all-in-one facility known as the Vanier Football Complex, which was demolished and rebuilt prior to the 2015 season. The new facility - Phase III of the Bill Snyder Family Stadium Master Plan - is more than double the amount of space for student-athletes and coaches, providing access to world-class resources, equipment and facilities, and creating a more efficient experience to train, study and compete. The new complex, attached to the stadium, will include expansive spaces, bold graphics and stateof-the-art equipment. A grand four-story atrium will leave a memorable first impression and be accessible from all levels.

CATS IN THE COMMUNITY A HELPING HAND A lot more goes into being a student-athlete at Kansas State than just working out and going to class. K-State’s Life Skills program focuses on encouraging student-athletes to become strong leaders and positive role models. K-State players are also encouraged to get involved in their community and annually participate in a number of service projects throughout the region. The goal of these programs is not only to enhance the student-athlete experience but also to expand character and provide leadership opportunities. By getting involved, K-State players gain a strong sense of self-worth, while experiencing the personal satisfaction that comes from volunteering. Two examples of these opportunities are Senior Kats and Junior Kats. Through the Senior Kats program, players visit the assisted living facilities in Manhattan, introduce themselves, and spend time with every resident in the facility and sign posters. In Junior Kats, players travel to various middle schools in the Manhattan area and speak to kids about staying in school, the importance of remaining drug free, as well as talking about working together as a team.

A WINNING TEAM Since 2006, K-State Football has partnered with units at nearby Fort Riley, located just 20 minutes away from Bill Snyder Family Stadium. Beginning in March, K-State is now partnered with the 1-16 Infantry Division of the U.S. Army, known as the Iron Rangers. From 2006-14, K-State was partnered with the 1-28 Black Lions. The team has made several trips to Fort Riley, including a pair of trips last summer when they went through an exercise at the ďŹ ring range and another to go through Physical Training (PT). Many Fort Riley soldiers travel to Manhattan each year for the annual Fort Riley Day game during the season. In 2015, the contest against Baylor on November 5 will serve as Fort Riley Day.


CLASSIC COLLEGE TOWN WELCOME TO THE LITTLE APPLE When it comes to classic college towns, the Little Apple ranks among the best. Although considerably smaller than its New York namesake, Manhattan has blossomed into a diversified city with urban amenities while retaining its small-town appeal. CNNMonney.com rates the area as one of the 10 best places in America to retire young. Men’s Journal selected Manhattan as one of the 50 best places to live in America, while Manhattan also checked in at No. 74 in Sporting News’ annual Best Sports Cities rankings. American Airlines now offers daily round-trip flights between Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, Chicago O’Hare International Airport and Manhattan Regional Airport, so flights out of an to Manhattan now connect to anywhere in the world. Manhattan also has many appealing places to shop, eat and socialize. An award-winning shopping mall is located in the heart of the downtown region, and Aggieville continues to be particularly popular with students. Around the holidays, Manhattan bustles with activity as approximately 15,000 revelers each year take to the streets of Aggieville to celebrate the Little Apple at the annual New Year’s Eve ball drop. In addition, Manhattan ranks at or near the top nationally in nearly every measure of economic growth: • Top 10 Per Capita Income Growth • Least Economically Stressed County in US • #2 US Metro in Economic Growth Potential • Top 1% in US Fastest Personal Income Growth • Top 5% Nationally in Job Growth • Top 15 Fastest Growing Cities in America

RECHARGE AND RELOAD With key contributors from last year lost but many suitable options waiting in the wings, the “re” word of choice for the 2015 Wildcats is not “rebuild.”

T

The loss of sheer numbers was not significant... the loss of impact was. Kansas State rode one of the most prolific aerial attacks in school history to a nine-win season, top-20 ranking for the third time in the last four years and fifth-consecutive bowl game. In search of its second conference title in a three-year span, K-State started the 2014 season 7-1, which included a perfect 5-0 mark in Big 12 play and a narrow six-point loss to No. 4 Auburn. But losses on the road to eventual Big 12 co-Champions TCU and Baylor dropped K-State to third place, its third top-three finish since the conference went to a full round-robin in 2011. Trying to replace a record-setting quarterback and two 1,000-yard wide receivers might be difficult. But the beauty of K-State’s philosophy is that it adapts to its personnel, which this year will be a stout offensive line with a pair of AllBig 12 performers and nearly the entire defense remaining intact, featuring three returning starters in the secondary and nine defenders overall that made at least two starts. What’s returning, not what was lost, has put the Cats in high spirits entering the 2015 season. In all, K-State brings back 44 letterwinners, including 16 starters – seven of whom earned AllBig 12 honors last season – and a Hall of Fame head coach in Bill Snyder, giving many in Manhattan belief there is no such thing as rebuilding.

OFFENSE With the loss of dynamic playmakers in quarterback Jake Waters and wide receivers Tyler Lockett and Curry Sexton, it appears from the outside that the offense will need a complete overhaul. However, if there’s one position to have experience returning and build an offense around, it’s the offensive line; and that’s exactly what the Wildcats have going for them to start 2015 as four of the five starters from last year return, as well as its primary fullback from the last two seasons. A three-headed race for the starting quarterback job turned to four in June with the signing of a community-college player, while players with limited experience at receiver return to try to pick up where two 1,000-yard receivers left off. An inexperienced position last year, two running backs return for 2015, while many others will push the returners as K-State looks to get back to a solid ground game this season.

QUARTERBACK K-State will be in search of a new quarterback for the first time in two seasons due to the departure of two-year starter Jake Waters, an All-Big 12 performer as a senior in 2014. Three quarterbacks – Joe Hubener, Jesse Ertz and Alex Delton – fought throughout spring practices for the starting honor with no clear-cut winner determined. Needing to give the competition a boost, a community-college prospect, Jonathan Banks, signed with K-State in early June and will seriously challenge the trio for the spot this fall. Hubener was the primary backup last season as he played in seven games, throwing for 235 yards and one touchdown, while he rushed 27 times for 142 yards. A high school wide receiver, he came to K-State originally as a walk-on but was award a scholarship last season. Ertz saw time in four games, rushing seven times for 46 yards, but he did not attempt a pass. He was the Red Raider Award winner in 2013 as the top contributor on the squad team. Delton, an in-state product, graduated high school a semester early and enrolled at K-State in January, while Banks was his conference’s offensive player of the year after accounting for 2,692 offensive yards and 28 touchdowns in just 10 games as a freshman at Contra Costa College. A Look at the Quarterbacks: Joe Hubener (6-5, 211, Jr.-1L) Jesse Ertz (6-3, 205, So.-1L) Alex Delton (6-0, 201, Fr.-HS) Jonathan Banks (6-2, 205, So.-TR)

RUNNING BACKS/FULLBACKS Although 12-game starter DeMarcus Robinson graduated, the cupboard is not bare at running back as K-State returns its leading rusher in Charles Jones. Jones totaled 540 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2014, finishing third in the Big 12 and 26th nationally in rushing scores. Another junior, Jarvis Leverett, Jr., could be poised for a breakout season after seeing time in four games last season. The pair of juniors will be pushed by a trio of freshmen, two redshirt and one true. The redshirt freshmen both impressed during practices in 2014, including Dalvin Warmack, who won the team’s Red Raider Award last year as the top contributor on scout team. Warmack was one of the top prep running backs in the nation in 2013 at Blue Springs (Mo.) High School after rushing for 2,223 yards and 45 touchdowns. Justin Silmon, a product of Tulsa, Oklahoma, walked on prior to last season after seeing a heralded prep career cut short due to injury. True freshman Alex Barnes, an in-state product from Pittsburg, graduated high school early and joined the team for spring practices just months after breaking his league’s single-season (2,361 yards, 38 touchdowns) and career (4,835 yards, 83 touchdowns) records. Two-time All-Big 12 fullback Glenn Gronkowski returns to continue to pave the way for the running backs and serve as a formidable threat as a receiver. The junior has

2015 K-STATE FOOTBALL MEDIA GUIDE

hauled in 10 career passes for 293 yards and four touchdowns. K-State may be able to utilize Gronkowski’s receiving talents even more with Winston Dimel looking to gain playing time as a blocking back after redshirting the 2014 season. A Look at the Running Backs/Fullbacks: Charles Jones (5-10, 206, Jr.-1) Jarvis Leverett, Jr. (5-11, 211, Jr.-1L) Justin Silmon (5-10, 191, Fr.-RS) Dalvin Warmack (5-8, 187, Fr.-RS) Alex Barnes (6-1, 226, Fr.-HS) Glenn Gronkowski [FB] (6-3, 234, Jr.-2L) Winston Dimel [FB] (6-1, 235, Fr.-RS)

WIDE RECEIVERS/TIGHT ENDS The position group that took the biggest hit from graduating seniors was wide receiver with the loss of two All-Big 12 performers in Tyler Lockett and Curry Sexton, the former being an All-American. The duo each topped the 1,000yard barrier as they accounted for 69-percent of the receiving yards in 2014. The Wildcats are not void of players to try to fill those roles, beginning with seniors Kody Cook, Andre Davis and Kyle Klein, along with junior Deante Burton. Cook, a former community-college walk-on, is the top returner with 251 yards and a touchdown on 20 receptions, while Burton hauled in 17 receptions for 171 yards. Davis saw limited playing time as a former communitycollege transfer, while Klein is looking to bounce back this year after an injury cost him his junior season of 2014. In 2013, Klein came away with five receptions for 59 yards, over half of which came in one game. Others looking to make an impact at receiver are a pair of special teams standouts – senior Stanton Weber and junior Collin Sexton – along with junior Steven West, redshirt freshman Dominique Heath and true freshman Zach Reuter. Reuter, a product of Columbia, Missouri, originally signed with K-State in 2014 but deferred his enrollment to January. The Wildcats also lost their regular tight end from the last two seasons in Zach Trujillo, but sophomore Cody Small saw action a year ago and Dayton Valentine is a solid balance of athleticism and physicality to be a viable option. A Look at the Wide Receivers/Tight Ends: Kody Cook (6-1, 200, Sr.-1L) Andre Davis (6-0, 203, Sr.-1L) Kyle Klein (6-4, 210, Sr.-2L) Stanton Weber (6-1, 194, Sr.-3L) Deante Burton (6-2, 205, Jr.-2L) Collin Sexton (5-11, 184, Jr.-1L) Steven West (6-1, 200, Jr.-1L) Dominique Heath (5-9, 175, Fr.-RS) Zach Reuter (6-3, 190, Fr.-HS) Cody Small [TE] (6-5, 241, So.-1L) Dayton Valentine [TE] (6-4, 262, Fr.-RS)

OFFENSIVE LINE One area on the 2015 Wildcats that is not void of experience is along the offensive line as the group returns 51 of a possible 65 total starts. Three 13-game starters – left tackle Cody Whitehair, left guard Boston Stiverson and right tackle Matt Kleinsorge – are back, while 12-game starter Luke Hayes returns at right guard. Whitehair is a three-time All-Big 12 performer and was on the watch list for the 2014 Outland Trophy and Lombardi Award. A product of Abilene, Kansas, Whitehair is a 2015 Preseason All-America pick, while Lindy’s named him the eighth-best offensive tackle in the nation entering 2015. Stiverson picked up honorable mention accolades last year and 2015 Preseason All-Big 12 honors after appearing to be fully healed from an injury in the Alamo Bowl. The Wildcats must replace All-American center B.J. Finney, but they have multiple options beginning with senior Reed Bergstrom, the primary back in 2014, and a pair of underclassmen in sophomore Reid Najvar and redshirt freshman Dalton Risner. Junior Will Ash will continue to earn playing

time at both guard and on special teams, while both Risner and Najvar will also add depth to the guard position. Providing depth and battling for playing time at tackle are senior Aaron Bennett, junior A.J. Allen, sophomore Ajahne Brager and redshirt freshmen Bryce Fitzner and Alec Ruth. Others in Camp: Cody Whitehair (6-4, 305, Sr.-3L) Boston Stiverson (6-4, 316, Sr.-3L) Matt Kleinsorge (6-5, 310, Sr.-3L) Luke Hayes (6-6, 295, Sr.-1L) Will Ash (6-3, 325, Jr.-2L) Reed Bergstrom (6-2, 305, Sr.-1L) Reid Najvar (6-4, 290, So.-SQ) Dalton Risner (6-5, 300, Fr.-RS) Aaron Bennett (6-7, 290, Sr.-1L) A.J. Allen (6-6, 300, Jr.-RS) Ajahne Brager (6-3, 303, So.-1L) Bryce Fitzner (6-7, 292, Fr.-RS) Alec Ruth (6-7, 300, Fr.-RS)

DEFENSE The Wildcats are hopeful to have one of their better defenses in some time thanks to six returning regular starters and three others that made at least two starts in 2014. Of the six returning starters, three reside in the secondary, including two with All-Big 12 honors a year ago. A group of young, talented players will vie for the starting spot alongside Dante Barnett at safety, while others will fill the void left by All-Big 12 nickelback Randall Evans. Two experienced linebackers, including one with starts in 2014, are back, but the Cats must replace 2014 leading tackler Jonathan Truman. In addition to the two experienced linebackers, a host of others – including multiple underclassmen – will compete for playing time at the second level. Half of the defensive line starters return in addition to another rising underclassman, but Kansas State will look for a replacement for 2013 All-American and two-time First Team All-Big 12 performer Ryan Mueller.

DEFENSIVE LINE The anchor of the defensive line and one of the three returning starters is senior tackle Travis Britz, a two-time All-Big 12 performer. The Harrisonville, Missouri, product has 23 starts over the past two seasons, including last year when he had 27 tackles and the first three sacks of his career. A five-game starter last year, Will Geary, returns for his sophomore season as the former walk-on totaled 30 tackles – the most among all K-State defensive tackles – to go along with a pair of sacks. Junior Demonte Hood will challenge for the starting nod after seeing time in seven games in 2014, while sophomore Matt Seiwert will look to have a breakout year. Another name thrown into the mix after signing in May is community-college transfer Craig Settles, Jr. At defensive end, 13-game starter Jordan Willis, is back on one side a year after recording 6.5 tackles for loss and four sacks. Senior Marquel Bryant will look to make an impact after playing in 25 games over the last two years, including two starts in 2013. Bryant will look to continue the momentum he showed at the end of last year as he had four tackles for loss and three sacks over the final four games. Sophomore Tanner Wood, who played mainly on special teams in every game last year, and true freshman Joshua Little – who graduated high school early and participated in spring practices – will also battle for time in the playing rotation. A Look at the Defensive Line: Travis Britz [DT] (6-4, 293, Sr.-3L) Will Geary [DT] (6-0, 297, So.-1L) Demonte Hood [DT] (6-0, 310, Jr.-2L) Matt Seiwert [DT] (6-3, 285, So.-SQ) Craig Settles, Jr. [DT] (6-5, 310, Jr.-TR) Jordan Willis [DE] (6-5, 250, Jr.-2L) Marquel Bryant [DE] (6-3, 254, Sr.-3L) Tanner Wood [DE] (6-5, 263, So.-1L) Joshua Little [DE] (6-4, 233, Fr.-HS)

LINEBACKERS Despite the loss of an All-Big 12 performer and leading tackler in Truman, the Wildcats return experience at linebacker beginning with junior Will Davis, who made six starts in 2014, including the TCU game when he made a careerhigh eight tackles. The Wildcats also bring back Charmeachealle Moore, who played in the opener but missed the rest of the year due to injury. Moore played in every game in 2013, totaling seven tackles and two sacks. Special teams stalwart Colborn Couchman, who has a team-best 19 career special teams tackles, will look to contribute more on defense, while a pair of sophomores, Elijah Lee and Trent Tanking, will attempt to take a step forward in their second seasons on the field. Lee was a true freshman last year who performed well enough to earn 2015 Preseason All-Big 12 honors from Athlon and Phil Steele. Lee played primarily at rush end on third downs and came away with 4.5 sacks, the most by a true freshman in school history. Tanking excelled on special teams but also shined in late-game duty when he had two tackles for loss against Oklahoma State. The final of three late community-college signees was a linebacker in Jayd Kirby, who comes to K-State after one season at Navarro College in which he had 70 tackles and 10 sacks. Others in the mix for playing time will be redshirt freshman Sam Sizelove and true freshman Justin Hughes, who originally signed in 2014 but deferred his enrollment to this January. A Look at the Linebackers: Will Davis (6-0, 224, Jr.-2L) Charmeachealle Moore (6-0, 221, Jr.-2L) Colborn Couchman (6-2, 218, Jr.-2L) Elijah Lee (6-3, 218, So.-1L) Trent Taking (6-2, 220, So.-1L) Jayd Kirby (6-2, 220, So.-TR) Sam Sizelove (6-3, 217, Fr.-RS) Justin Hughes (6-1, 210, Fr.-HS)

SECONDARY The back end of the defense will be led by Barnett, a career 28-game starter, as well as fulltime starters at cornerback in Danzel McDaniel and Morgan Burns. Barnett and McDaniel were both Second Team All-Big 12 performers in 2014 and have earned Preseason All-Big 12 honors this year. Barnett has a team-best 176 career tackles, including totals of 75 and 77 the last two seasons, while he had 11 passes defended in 2014. McDaniel was one of the hardest-hitting defensive backs in the nation last year as he came away with 59 tackles on the year and a pick-six at Oklahoma. Burns picked off three passes last season and had 55 tackles last season. A new nickelback must be found with the departure of three-year starter Randall Evans, but senior Nate Jackson and junior Donnie Starks may fill that hole. Jackson could also fill the other safety spot with sophomores Sean Newlan and Kaleb Prewett also competing for that spot. Both players made significant contributions on

special teams in 2014. Junior Jesse Mack and sophomore Cre Moore played sparingly in 2014 but will look to take a step forward, while redshirt freshmen Kendall Adams and Colby Moore will try to contribute on both defense and special teams.

SPECIALISTS The Wildcats special teams should be in good hands over the next few years as place kicker Matthew McCrane and punter Nick Walsh return for their sophomore seasons. Neither started last season atop the depth chart but both

were called on early in the year and ran away with the jobs. McCrane made 18-of-19 field goals on the year and led the nation with a 94.7 field goal percentage en route to Honorable Mention AllAmerica honors, while he earned 2015 Preseason All-Big 12 honors from Athlon and Phil Steele. His starting job won’t come easy, as Jack Cantele will look to retain his spot from two years ago. Kickoff duties will likely to go junior Ian Patterson, who has 129 career kickoffs. Walsh appeared in the second game of the season and took a hold of the primary punter spot by averaging 41.3 yards per punt with nine traveling at least 50 yards and 15 landing inside the 20-yard line. He will be challenged again by another sophomore, Mitch Lochbihler. Senior Dalton Converse and sophomore Drew Scott will continue to battle for long snapper duties in 2015, a year after both snapped throughout the year. In the return game, Morgan Burns returns for his senior year after averaging 30.7 yards on kickoff returns last year. Redshirt freshman Dominique Heath made such an impact in the 2015 spring game with 374 return yards that some publications named him to their Preseason All-Big 12 teams despite not yet playing in a regular-season game. A Look at the Specialists: Matthew McCrane [PK] (5-10, 165, So.-1L) Jack Cantele [PK] (6-0, 175, Sr.-2L) Ian Patterson [PK] (6-0, 211, Jr.-2L) Nick Walsh [P] (5-11, 212, So.-1L) Mitch Lochbihler [P] (6-7, 240, So.-SQ) Dalton Converse [LS] (5-11, 215, Sr.-2L) Drew Scott [LS] (6-2, 212, So.-SQ)

SCHEDULE The 2015 schedule is highlighted by seven games in front of one of the best home crowds in the nation. In fact, the Wildcats are on pace for 27-straight sellouts after the 2015 season, while K-State has ranked second in the nation in percentage of capacity filled each of the last two years. A rare road game highlights the non-conference schedule as K-State heads back to the Alamodome – the site of the 2015 Alamo Bowl – to take on UTSA a week after hosting South Dakota in the season opener. Following a game against Louisiana Tech and a bye, K-State enters a tough five-game stretch against some of the favorites in the 2015 Big 12 race, featuring home games against TCU (Oct. 10), Oklahoma (Oct. 17) and a Thursday-night game against Baylor (Nov. 5). The Wildcats trade off home games during the final four contests of the season, but three are in the Sunflower State as K-State hosts Iowa State (Nov. 21) and West Virginia (Dec. 5), while it travels to Texas Tech (Nov. 14) and Kansas (Nov. 28).

BILL SNYDER

16 BOWL GAMES TWO BIG 12 CHAMPIONSHIPS

College Football

Hall of Fame Class of 2015

Five-Time National Coach of the Year 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 six seasons back in charge, he has done just that – and then some. Over the past six years under Snyder, K-State has totaled 51 victories – an average of 8.5 wins per year – advanced to five-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 four seasons. Additionally, the Wildcats have more Big 12 wins since 2011 – 27 – than any other team in the conference. 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 11win 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 elected to 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, will be enshrined in the hall in December 2015. The latest chapter in the career of the legendary coach was in 2014, Snyder’s 23rd year at the helm of the program, which saw the Wildcats collect their 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

56

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. 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 bowl-eligible. 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.

HEAD COACH In 2011, Snyder’s Wildcats jumped out to a 7-0 start – the best in 12 years – which included big wins at Miami, against 15thranked Baylor and at Texas Tech. Following a two-game skid to a pair of nationally-ranked teams, the Wildcats got back into the win column with a thrilling 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 All-Big 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 187-94-1 (.665) record during his tenure with the Wildcats, including a 109-71-1 (.605) mark in Big 8/12 games. His 187 victories are more than four times the man in second place on K-State’s all-time coaching victories list and rank 32nd 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 Kansas State has not gone unnoticed. He has been named the National Coach of the Year on five occasions (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 Associ-

ated 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. Snyder’s Wildcats finished the season with six consecutive victories, including the biggest wins in the history of the series in each of a three-week span against Kansas, Iowa State and Nebraska. The Wildcats’ dominant play down the stretch of the 2002 season earned Snyder the recognition of his peers as the Big 12 Conference Coach of the Year. In 2001, Snyder directed one of the best in-season turnarounds in school history. Despite losing four straight in the middle of the year and facing the fourth-toughest schedule in the nation, the Wildcats recovered to win four of their last five games to end the regular season with a 6-5 record and a berth in the Insight.com Bowl. Despite the record, the quality of players produced by the Snyder-led coaching staff continued to attract national attention from those who best know the game. Six 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 Wildcats 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 Division for the second time in three years and earned at least a share of the title for the third consecutive season. K-State had six players named First Team All-Big 12 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 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, 36-17. The season ended with a 35-18 win over Big East Conference champion Syracuse in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, with an estimated 50,000 K-State fans attending K-State’s first-ever Alliance Bowl. The 1996 season saw K-State finish with a 9-3 record, while more than 45,000 Wildcat fans painted Dallas purple for the 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 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.

During his three-year hiatus, Snyder remained involved with the university and is currently a member of severall halls of fame that are listed below. The long-time mentor also involved in many organizations that are listed below. Snyder was awarded the 2015 Excellence in Mentoring Award by MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership in recognition of his longstanding commitment to meeting the mentoring needs of young people in Kansas. Snyder, 75, 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.

Former All-American punter and long-time staff member Sean Snyder is in his fifth season as the Wildcats’ Associate Head Coach/Special Teams Coordinator and Director of Football Operations. The former Consensus All-American enters his 21st overall year as a member of the Kansas State staff as he continues his role as Director of Football Operations, a position he has held the past 19 years. Due to the success of the Wildcat special teams over the past few years, Snyder has been named a finalist for FootballScoop’s Special Teams Coordinator of the Year award each of the last three seasons. The 2014 season was another banner year for the Wildcat special teams as the Snyder-led units ranked third nationally and tops in the Big 12 in punt-return average (18.0) and 16th in the country in kickoff-return defense (17.97). Individually, Tyler Lockett earned Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Year honors for a second-straight season as he led the nation with a 19.1-yard punt return average in addition to ranking third nationally in all-purpose yards (176.62 per game) and punt-return touchdowns (2). Lockett was also a Consensus All-American as an all-purpose player, earning numerous First Team All-America honors as a kick returner. Thanks to Snyder’s scheming in the return game, Lockett left K-State holding the school record for kickoff-return yards (2,196) and set the Big 12 record for career kickoff-return average (28.5). In the kicking game, Matthew McCrane was an honorable mention All-American in addition to earning Freshman All-America honors after leading the nation with a 94.7-percent field goal conversion rate. Due in part to McCrane, Snyder’s kickers broke the school record with 23 made field goals during the 2014 season. McCrane became the first freshman in school history to connect on two field goals of 50 yards or greater, while he shattered the K-State freshman record for points scored (95), nearly 40 more than former Lou Groza Award winner Martin Gramatica. Snyder’s kickoff-return unit also pushed the nation’s longest kickoffreturn touchdown streak to 10 years when Morgan Burns raced 86 yards for a score against Oklahoma State. The 2014 season was a continuation of a three-year run of unprecedented success for K-State’s specialty units. The 2012 Wildcats led the nation in kickoff-return average at 29.24 yards per return as they shattered both the school and Big 12 records. Additionally, the average was the best mark in NCAA history among teams with 35 or more returns in a season. K-State also ranked second in the NCAA with an 18.95 punt-return average, while its punt return defense average of two yards tied for fourth. Individually, Lockett, who earned All-America honors, ranked third nationally in kickoff-return average at 32.76 yards per return. Tramaine Thompson claimed the top spot in punt-return average at 19.75, which ranked third in school and Big 12 history.

In 2013, Snyder’s units ranked fifth nationally with five blocked kicks, including four from national leader Travis Britz. The punt-return unit averaged 12.5 yards per return to rank 17th in the nation, while the Wildcats ranked 26th nationally with a 23.4-yard average per kickoff return. Snyder tutored Lockett to Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Year accolades, while he was also named a First Team All-Big 12 kick returner. Thompson left Kansas State ranked fourth in school history in career punt-return yards (718) as he was named an Honorable Mention All-Big 12 performer as a kick returner in 2013. In his first year as a full-time coach in 2011, K-State was among the nation’s best in kickoff returns as Lockett, a true freshman, earned Walter Camp All-America honors after leading the nation with his 35.2yard average. Punter Ryan Doerr was also a candidate for the Ray Guy Award, while place-kicker Anthony Cantele was a semifinalist for the Lou Groza Award in 2012 and was an Honorable Mention All-Big 12 pick in 2011. Snyder received his start as a part-time assistant coach with the Wildcats in 1994 and served in that capacity until 1996 when he began focusing his efforts on the administrative side of the program as the Director of Football Operations. In 1999, Snyder was promoted to Assistant Athletics Director for Football Operations. He was named Associate Athletics Director in 2001 and Senior Associate Athletics Director in 2010. A member of Kansas State’s inaugural Ring of Honor Class in 2002, Snyder was one of the program’s most prolific punters during his playing days at K-State from 1991-92. As a senior, Snyder earned First Team All-America honors from the Associated Press, Kodak and Athlon after averaging a school-record 44.7-yards per punt. In 1991 he was tabbed as the Big Eight Defensive Newcomer of the Year after averaging 40.5 yards in his junior season. A First Team All-Big Eight selection in 1992 after earning honorablemention honors in 1991, Snyder was selected to play in the 1992 BlueGray Game. Snyder, K-State’s Special Teams MVP in 1991 and 1992, held the school record for career punting average (43.0) before having it broken by James Garcia in 1998, while his 3,572 punting yardage in 1992 still remains a school record. Following his collegiate career, Snyder signed a free agent contract with the Phoenix Cardinals in 1993 and the San Diego Chargers in 1994. Snyder earned his bachelor’s degree from K-State in money and banking in 1994. Married to the former Wanda Boyett, the couple has three children, daughter Katherine, and sons Tate and Matthew, and one grandchild, D.J.

Tom Hayes, a 32-year coaching veteran with previous coordinator experience at three BCS institutions, enters his fourth season as the Wildcats’ defensive coordinator in 2015 and his fifth year overall at Kansas State. Hayes was instrumental in the Wildcats’ resurgence on defense in 2011, while he directed a defense that helped the Wildcats produce a Big 12 Championship in 2012 and five-straight bowl berths. A University of Iowa graduate with extensive Big Eight and Big 12 coaching ties, Hayes completed his 26th year of coaching experience at the collegiate level in 2014 and participated in his 17th career bowl game when the Wildcats earned a spot in the 2015 Alamo Bowl. Focusing his positional work on defensive backs, Hayes has taught a distinct ballhawking mindset as the Wildcats have combined for 68 interceptions over the last four years, the second most of any Big 12 team during that time. The ballhawking trend continued in 2014 as the Wildcats picked off 15 passes to rank 23rd nationally and second in the Big 12. Additionally, K-State extended its streak to four seasons with at least one interception-return touchdown when Danzel McDaniel returned a pick five yards for a score at Oklahoma. The 2014 Wildcat defense also ranked second in the conference in scoring defense and third in both total and red zone defense. Hayes tutored hybrid defensive back Randall Evans to First Team All-Big 12 honors from the league’s coaches, McDaniel and safety Dante Barnett were named to the second team. In all, six Wildcat defenders pulled in All-Big 12 accolades. The defense was a major reason for K-State’s historic in-season turnaround in 2013 when the Wildcats went from 2-4 to an eight-win team. The defense surrendered only 20.1 points per game in the final seven contests, six of which were victories, and over that seven-game stretch, Hayes’ unit intercepted 13 passes and totaled 17 on the year to rank 23rd nationally. The Wildcats were efficient with their interceptions as well as they set the school record for return yards (401) and ranked fifth in school history with three returns for touchdowns. Individually, Hayes helped guide four defenders to All-Big 12 honors, including Big 12 Defensive Lineman of the Year Ryan Mueller and Ty Zimmerman, who became the first four-year all-conference player in school history. The safety also earned numerous All-America honors, was an honorable mention pick for the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year award, a semifinalist for the Jim Thorpe Award and a candidate for the Bednarik Award and Nagurski Trophy. Thanks to Hayes’ coaching, Zimmerman left K-State third in career interceptions, second in career interception-return yards and fourth in career interception-return touchdowns. In his first season as defensive coordinator in 2012, Hayes directed the Wildcats to the top mark in the Big 12 in scoring defense as Kansas State yielded only 22.1 points per game – a six-point improvement from the year before – thanks to a stout rush defense that placed second in the league by yielding only 128.0 rushing yards per game. The Wildcats also pulled in 18 interceptions for a second-straight year to tie for 10th in school history, while Kansas State’s plus-19 mark in turnover differential ranked third nationally. Hayes helped tutor a pair of All-Americans in linebacker Arthur Brown and Zimmerman, while Brown was the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year by the league’s coaches and Meshak Williams picked up Big 12 Defensive Lineman of the Year honors. The Wildcat defenders totaled 11 All-Big 12 selections under Hayes’ guidance.

Tutoring the K-State secondary and serving as the pass game coordinator in 2011, Hayes helped Nigel Malone become an instant playmaker at cornerback as the junior was named a Walter Camp AllAmerican after leading the Big 12 with seven interceptions. David Garrett, Tysyn Hartman and Zimmerman all earned All-Big 12 honors in 2011 from their positions in the defensive backfield, while the Wildcat defense overall ranked fifth in the Big 12 in total defense, second in interceptions (18) and second in turnover margin (+12) in 2011. Prior to arriving at K-State, Hayes spent the 2010 season on Bob Toledo’s staff at Tulane after serving on the New Orleans Saints staff as a defensive backs coach for two seasons in 2006 and 2007. During his career, Hayes has served as defensive coordinator at Power 5 institutions Stanford, UCLA, Oklahoma and Kansas and also coached the defensive backs for the Washington Redskins for five years. He has been a part of teams that have compiled an 11-6 record in bowl games throughout his career – including three Rose Bowl victories – and has coached 26 defensive backs who moved on to NFL rosters, including five first-round draft picks. Prior to arriving at Stanford in 2005, Hayes spent the 2001 season at Kansas. He was the Jayhawks’ defensive coordinator and secondary coach and was interim head coach for the final three games of the season. Hayes spent the 1995-99 seasons coaching the secondary for the Redskins under Norv Turner, while he coached under Gary Gibbs at the University of Oklahoma for four years (1991-94), under R.C. Slocum at Texas A&M for two years (1989-90) and under Terry Donahue at UCLA for nine seasons (1980-88). Hayes worked for nine years as an assistant coach under Donahue at UCLA, helping the Bruin program win four Pac-10 Championships, appear in three Rose Bowls and eight bowl games overall. The Bruins never won less than seven games during Hayes’ nine-year tenure. Hayes was the defensive coordinator and secondary coach at Cal State Fullerton in 1979 and was the secondary coach at his alma mater, Iowa, in 1977-78. He coached for five years on the high school level and one year at Coe College in Iowa before getting his first Division I job at Iowa in 1977. Hayes was a three-year letterwinner as a defensive back for the Hawkeyes from 1967-71, and earned his degree from Iowa in Finance/ Insurance in 1971. Born in Keokuk, Iowa, he and his wife Cindy have three children, Andy, Lindsay and Sarah. For a complete bio on Hayes, please visit www.k-statesports.com

Del Miller, who has worked with some of the most prolific offenses in school history, is entering his 19th season overall at K-State in 2015, which includes four different tours of duty in Manhattan under head coach Bill Snyder. Miller, who returned with Snyder in 2009, serves as the Wildcats’ co-offensive coordinator while also tutoring the quarterbacks. Due in part to Miller’s co-directing of an offense and tutelage of quarterbacks, K-State has won at least eight games each of the last four years and earned five-consecutive bowl berths, while the Wildcats lead the Big 12 with 5.14 points per red zone possession over the last three years. The latest Miller protégé at K-State was Jake Waters, a community-college transfer prior to the 2013 season that turned into one of the best quarterbacks in program history. The 2014 season saw Waters break the school records for total offense (3,985) and passing yards (3,501) as he ranked 13th and 15th nationally in those categories, respectively. Waters went on to earn All-Big 12 honors while being named a semifinalist for the Maxwell and Davey O’Brien awards. Waters also set the K-State records for season (65.99) and career (64.08) completion percentage, career yards per attempt (9.09) and career passing efficiency (155.6). He also ranks second in school history in career passing touchdowns (40) and yards (5,970) despite playing in just 26 games over his two-year career. Thanks to Miller’s guidance of Waters, K-State ranked in the top 25 nationally in several categories during the 2014 season including passing efficiency (11th), completion percentage (12th), red zone offense (14th) and passing offense (16th). In 2012, Miller tutored Heisman Trophy finalist Collin Klein as the signal caller guided K-State to an 11-2 record and the school’s second BCS Bowl berth. Klein was also the 2013 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award winner, a finalist for the Maxwell and Manning awards and Walter Camp Player of the Year, while he was named an All-American by numerous organizations. Under Miller’s guidance, Klein improved upon or established 34 career, season or single-game top-10 marks in K-State history, including eight school records. He also became the only quarterback from a BCS automatic qualifying school in the BCS era to rush for at least 20 touchdowns and pass for at least 10 scores in multiple seasons, while he broke the FBS record for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback in consecutive seasons. Miller led a 2012 offense that saw Klein set a new Big 12 record and NCAA record by a quarterback with 27 rushing touchdowns. Klein surpassed the 1,000-yard rushing mark on the season as well, and became one of the nation’s top players in 2011 under Miller’s guidance. K-State maintained one of the top offenses in the Big 12 in 2011 en route to a 10-3 record and a berth in the 2012 AT&T Cotton Bowl. With K-State needing to break in a new starter for the 2013 season, the transition was seamless due to Miller’s guidance of K-State’s 1-2 punch of Waters and Daniel Sams, which combined to rank eighth nationally in yards per completion (14.83) and 13th in passing efficiency (155.72). Additionally, K-State was fine-tuned on third downs by leading the Big 12 and ranking 13th nationally at 48.8 percent. Waters started all 13 games and played especially well when KState won six of its final seven games as he went 83-of-138 for 1,433 yards and 14 touchdowns while only throwing four interceptions down the stretch. His 2,469 yards on the year ranked 10th in school history, and he ranked sixth in K-State history with 18 touchdown passes. Waters, who was a Second Team All-Big 12 selection by Phil Steele, was also one of the most efficient quarterbacks in the country as his 15.53 yards per completion ranked fourth in the NCAA and his 156.84 quarterback rating was 14th. Sams earned Honorable Mention All-Big 12 honors as he rushed for 807 yards and a team-high 11 touchdowns. In 2010, Miller helped the Wildcat offense average 33.6 points per game en route to the program’s first bowl appearance since 2006. K-

State was also ranked among the top 10 teams in the country in total red zone efficiency and No. 1 nationally in touchdown percentage in the red zone. The Cats’ 47-percent conversion rating on third down ranked second in the league, while they were also the least penalized offense in the Big 12. Quarterback Carson Coffman recorded the fifth-highest efficiency rating in school history in 2010 after completing 65-percent of his passes for a passing efficiency rating of 143.1. In 2009, Miller ushered in a new quarterback as Grant Gregory took over the offense and led the Cats to a second-place finish in the Big 12 North. Behind Gregory’s leadership, K-State was one win away in the final game from advancing to the Big 12 Championship. Prior to coming back to K-State in 2009, Miller was the offensive coordinator at San Diego State from 2006-08. One of the first hires made by Snyder when he first came to K-State in 1989, Miller returned to Manhattan in 2001 as offensive coordinator for his third stint on the staff after serving as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Oklahoma State for the 2000 season. Miller has played a major role in the building of two major college programs, first at Iowa under the legendary Hayden Fry from 1978-88 before becoming a member of Snyder’s original Kansas State coaching staff. He has coached in 18 bowl games, including 10 at Kansas State. Miller began his second stint as the school’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2003. He helped the Wildcats rank ninth nationally in both scoring and rushing offense and 17th in total offense en route to capturing their first conference championship in nearly 70 years. The offense was one of just seven in the country to average over 200 yards per game in both rushing and passing. Miller was instrumental in developing quarterback Ell Roberson, who at one time was the school’s all-time leader in total offense and passing touchdowns. With the opportunity to run his own program, Miller left K-State in 1995 to be the head coach at Southwest Missouri State. Miller followed Snyder to K-State in 1989, serving as the program’s offensive coordinator as well as quarterbacks and wide receivers coach. After two year, he was elevated to assistant head coach. A native of Marengo, Iowa, Miller played and graduated from Central College in Pella, Iowa. He earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in physical education. Miller and his wife, Jan, have three sons, Troy, Todd and Tad, a daughter-in-law, Maria (Tad’s wife), and two grandsons, Gabriel and Benjamin.

Former Kansas State standout Andre Coleman returned to his alma mater prior to the 2013 season to tutor the Wildcat wide receivers, and he hasn’t wasted any time making an impact. A four-year letterwinner at wide receiver under Bill Snyder from 1990-93, Coleman has coached a position group that recorded the most receptions and yards ever by a Snyder-coached team in 2013 before shattering both those marks in 2014 with 230 receptions for 3,097 yards. The effort in 2014 was buoyed by a 1-2 punch of All-American Tyler Lockett and All-Big 12 performer Curry Sexton, the first duo in school history to go over 1,000 yards in the same season and the top receiving duo nationally last season. Lockett, a semifinalist for the Biletnikoff Award, finished third in the country and tops in the Big 12 with 1,515 receiving yards to go along with 11 touchdowns, another top mark in the league. Lockett also hauled in the second-most receptions in a season in school history with 106. Thanks in large part to Coleman’s tutelage, Lockett left K-State as the all-time leader in career receptions (249), yards (3,710) and touchdowns (29), just three of the 17 school records he set in his fouryear career. Lockett also earned Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Year honors for a second-straight season and was a Consensus AllAmerican as a returner due to the coaching of Coleman, an All-American returner at K-State by his own right. A mastered kickoff returner, Lockett excelled in punt-return duties as a senior by leading the nation with a 19.1-yard average, while he returned two for touchdowns. Sexton ranked 25th nationally and fourth in the conference with 1,059 yards. He recorded the two best seasons of his career under Coleman as he had a three-year total of just 564 yards entering his senior season, 446 of which came as a junior, Coleman’s first season on staff. Sexton teamed with Lockett to record five of the school’s double 100-yard games while he finished fourth in school history in singleseason receptions (79) and seventh in yards. The 2013 group was paced by Lockett, who ranked 11th nationally with 105.2 receiving yards per game and 19th in the NCAA with 11 touchdown receptions en route to All-America honors. Lockett, who was a candidate for the Biletnikoff Award, set the school’s single-game receiving yardage record at Texas (237) before smashing his own mark later in the season against Oklahoma (278). He also tied the singlegame school record with three receiving

touchdowns on three occasions. The 2013 Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Year thanks in part to Coleman, Lockett obliterated the school’s single-game all-purpose yardage record with 440 against Oklahoma, a mark that ranked as the fifth-most in FBS history. Although Lockett was the driving force behind Coleman’s successful receiving corps in 2013, he was hardly the lone threat as Sexton and senior Tramaine Thompson gave the Wildcats solid No. 2 and 3 options for Coleman. Thompson, who left K-State No. 12 on the all-time receiving list, was an Honorable Mention All-Big 12 kick returner thanks to Coleman’s tutelage. Prior to returning to K-State, Coleman spent the previous three seasons on head coach and former K-State offensive lineman Eric Wolford’s staff at Youngstown State. In 2011 and 2012 at Youngstown State, Coleman worked with no seniors and only one junior as he coached multiple freshmen and sophomores who were called into action early in their careers to the tune of 109 total receptions by underclassmen. He helped YSU post a 7-4 record, including a 31-17 victory at Pittsburgh, which served as the school’s first-ever victory over a BCS opponent. During his first season as the receivers coach in 2011, Coleman guided a group that caught 22 of a school-record 27 touchdown passes, while the Penguins’ 227.5 passing yards per game were the second most in school history and the highest since 1972. Christian Bryan set school freshman records in receptions (46) and yards (722) under Coleman’s watch, while his yardage total was the most by a freshman at the FCS level that season. Coaching the tight ends in his first season on the staff in 2010, Coleman’s group hauled in 17 receptions and two touchdowns, helping YSU’s offense set a then-school record at 412.0 yards per game. A 1993 All-America and All-Big Eight performer, Coleman left his mark at K-State during his four years by accumulating 3,443 allpurpose yards, including 1,556 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns on 95 receptions and 1,458 kickoff-return yards on 60 returns. He still sits in K-State’s top 10 in 13 offensive or return categories, including top marks in both single-game all-purpose yards per play (27.0 vs. Missouri in 1993) and career all-purpose yards per play (18.2), and third-place rankings in career kickoff-return attempts and kickoffreturn yards. The Hermitage, Pennsylvania, product was drafted in the third round of the 1994 NFL Draft by San Diego and put together a solid five-year professional career playing for the Chargers, Seattle Seahawks and Pittsburgh Steelers. A two-time Pro Bowler and 1994 NFL All-Rookie squad honoree, Coleman helped the Chargers win the 1994 AFC Championship and earn a trip to Super Bowl XXIX in which he established eight Super Bowl records at the time, including a then-record 98-yard kickoff return touchdown as he became the first Wildcat football player to score a touchdown in a Super Bowl. Coleman completed his degree in social sciences from Kansas State in the summer of 2011. He and his wife, Brandi, have three daughters, Shyla, Kyla and Brielle.

FOURTH YEAR 12 BOWL GAMES 10 CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIPS

A 27-year coaching veteran who has been influential in preparing many players for the NFL, Mike Cox is entering his fourth season as K-State’s linebackers coach under Hall of Fame head coach Bill Snyder. In just three seasons in Manhattan, Cox has tutored four linebackers that have earned All-Big 12 honors, headlined by 2012 Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year Arthur Brown, who went on to become a second-round draft pick by Baltimore in 2013. The latest All-Big 12 linebacker was Jonathan Truman in 2014. A 13-game starter, Truman carded 128 tackles to finish season third in the Big 12 and 18th in school history. He tallied the most stops by a Wildcat since 2003, while his total was carried by 79 unassisted tackles, the third most in school history and 14th most nationally during the season. Thanks to Cox’s guidance, Truman, a former walk-on, carded seven double-digit tackle games, including a career high 17 in a win at No. 11 Oklahoma, which were the most by a K-State defender in 11 years. Truman was also a semifinalist for the Burlsworth Trophy, presented to the nation’s top walk-on. With the coaching of Cox and leadership of Truman, the K-State defense ranked second in the Big 12 in scoring defense and third in both total and red zone defense. Cox made an instant impact on the Wildcat linebackers in 2012 as he tutored two All-Big 12 performers and an All-American in Brown. Under Cox’s tutelage, Brown was named a finalist for the Lott IMPACT Trophy and a semifinalist for the Bednarik Award. He also helped K-State finish first in the Big 12 in scoring defense as the Wildcats yielded 22.1 points per game. The Wildcat defense also finished second in the conference and 10th in school history in fewest rushing yards allowed per game. In addition, Kansas State’s 376.5 yards allowed per game were the third-fewest in the conference. In 2013, All-Big 12 linebacker Blake Slaughter led a Wildcat defense that ranked third in the Big 12 in rushing, scoring and total defense. Slaughter’s 110 tackles on the season ranked sixth in the Big 12, including third among linebackers. Truman, in his first year as a starter, also had 89 tackles. A 1989 graduate of the University of Idaho, Cox came to K-State from Washington where he served as linebackers coach for three seasons. Prior to joining the Huskies, Cox worked two seasons (2007-08) for the St. Louis Rams, coaching the secondary and linebackers. Cox was vital to the success at Washington in his three years as he tutored Cort Dennison to All-Pac-12 honors in 2011 before coaching one of the conference’s top linebacker groups in 2010.

THE COX FAMILY

Foster led the league and finished second in the nation with 163 total tackles, the most by a Pac-10 player since 1989. Foster went on to earn First Team All-Pac-10 and First Team All-America honors. Meanwhile, Victor Aiyewa finished first in the conference and seventh in the nation in tackles for loss, while Dennison was seventh in the league in total tackles. In his first season as the UW linebackers coach in 2009, Cox helped oversee one of the Huskies’ strongest units. Washington’s 2009 linebacker corps was led by a pair of veterans in Foster and Donald Butler. Those two combined for 193 tackles, including 94 from Butler, who was a Second Team All-Pac-10 selection. Cox also helped coach a defense that made vast improvements over the previous season as opponents’ total offense was reduced by an average of 62 yards per game and opponents scored 12 fewer points per game than in 2008. A native of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, Cox joined the UW staff from the St. Louis Rams where he worked for two seasons. In 2007, he was a defensive quality control/defensive line coach before moving to assistant secondary coach in 2008. After a mid-season coaching change, he became linebackers coach for the Rams. Before his time in the NFL, Cox spent four seasons as linebackers coach at Michigan State, where he was also the recruiting coordinator in 2006. Much of Cox’s coaching career has been spent on the various coaching staffs of John L. Smith. In all, Cox served 17 seasons for Smith at Michigan State, Louisville, Utah State and Idaho. Cox coached the linebackers for five seasons at Louisville (19982002), helping the Cardinals to consecutive Conference USA championships in 2000 and 2001. He coached three All-CUSA selections and, in 2000, was part of a defense that forced an NCAA-best 37 turnovers. The 2002 Louisville team was 17th in the nation in rushing defense and 22nd in total defense. From 1995-97, he was on the staff at Utah State where he coached a pair of All-Big West linebackers, David Gill and Tony D’Amato. In 1995, Gill broke Utah State’s season record for tackles with 168. Utah State won back-to-back Big West Conference championships in 1996 and 1997. As an assistant at Idaho from 1987-94 coaching linebackers and defensive line, Cox helped his alma mater to a combined record of 73-26 (.733) during that time, capturing four Big Sky Conference championships and finishing in the top 10 five times. In 1994, the Vandals led the Big Sky in rushing defense, allowing only 65.3 yards per game. Cox was a four-year letterwinner at linebacker for Idaho from 1983-86, starting for three seasons. He played for head coaches Dennis Erickson and Keith Gilbertson. He still ranks among the Vandals’ all-time leaders with 252 career tackles. For his efforts in both high school and college, Cox was inducted into the Idaho Athletic Hall of Fame in 2014. Cox earned a bachelor’s degree in general studies from Idaho in 1989. He and his wife, Jill, have three children, Zac, Jake and Addison.

Charlie Dickey enters his seventh season at K-State tutoring the offensive line as he joined Bill Snyder’s staff upon his return in 2009. Since his first season in Manhattan, Dickey has tutored offensive linemen to 16 All-Big 12 honors, including seven first-team accolades. His offensive lines have been an integral part in the Wildcats advancing to five-straight bowl games and recording more Big 12 wins than any other team in the league since 2011 (27). The anchor of the line over the last four years, center B.J. Finney, finished his illustrious career in 2014. Under the watchful eye of Dickey, Finney became one of just three four-year all-conference players in school history, was the 2014 Big 12 co-Offensive Lineman of the Year and earned All-America honors as a senior. Finney was a three-time candidate for the Rimington Trophy, including a finalist as a senior, while he started all 52 games during his four-year career. Finney was also a two-time candidate for the Lombardi Award and Outland Trophy. Aside from Finney, Dickey tutored two other All-Big 12 linemen in 2014, Cody Whitehair (second team) and Boston Stiverson (honorable mention), as the trio helped K-State rank in the top 25 nationally in nine offensive categories, including second-place marks in the Big 12 in third-down conversions and red zone offense. K-State also led the conference and ranked 13th nationally in time of possession, while the Wildcat offensive line paved the way for 30 rushing touchdowns, the fourth most in the conference and 10th most in school history. Four of Dickey’s five starters in 2013 earned All-Big 12 honors, including senior tackle Cornelius Lucas, who was an undrafted free agent signee by the Detroit Lions and ended up the starter at right tackle by the end of his rookie year, which ended in the playoffs. The veteran unit – led by Lucas, Finney and 2014 NFL Draftee Tavon Rooks – helped K-State earn its first bowl victory in 11 years and did so by helping the Wildcats be one of the most effective offenses down the stretch. During the final seven games of the year when K-State went 6-1, the Wildcats averaged 35.9 points and 404.7 yards per game, including an average of 172.7 yards on the ground. The Wildcats finished the season ranked 13th nationally and first in the Big 12 in third-down conversions, which was due in large part to the offensive line helping Kansas State convert 61.5-percent of its third downs when needing six or fewer yards. Additionally, the 2013 Wildcats ranked 10th in school history in average yards per rush (4.5) and rushing touchdowns (29). In 2012, Dickey guided an offensive line that helped Kansas State win a Big 12 Championship thanks to finishing fourth in the conference in rushing offense and yielding the second-fewest sacks in the league with 14. Dickey’s linemen helped K-State place in the top 10 of school history in yards per carry (third; 4.79), rushing touchdowns (fourth; 41), yards per game (fifth; 411.2) and total offense (sixth; 4,935). He saw four of his five regular starters earn all-conference accolades, including Finney, who was a semifinalist for the Burlsworth Trophy, given to the nation’s top walk-on player. The group paved the way for Collin Klein in both the running and passing game as they helped the quarterback become an AllAmerican and Heisman Trophy finalist. In 2011, K-State remained one of the most physical offenses in the Big 12, led by an offensive line that blocked for Klein. Three Wildcat linemen led the group as seniors Clyde Aufner and Zach Hanson earned THE DICKEY All-Big 12 honors from their tackle

positions, while Finney came on strong in his first year on the field and earned both Freshman All-Big 12 and All-America honors. The Wildcats were again the least penalized team in the league, while the offensive line helped the Cats average 31 points a game and total 34 rushing touchdowns on the year. In 2010, Dickey tutored an experienced K-State line that included three seniors in the middle, headlined by All-Big 12 guard Zach Kendall and Rimington Award candidate Wade Weibert at center. The group blocked for Daniel Thomas, who paced the Big 12 in rushing in both 2009 and 2010. K-State averaged 33.6 points per game in 2010 en route to the program’s first bowl appearance since 2006. Additionally, the Cats’ 47-percent conversion rating on third down ranked second in the league, while they were also the least penalized offense in the Big 12. The 2009 group, led by senior All-Big 12 tackle Nick Stringer, proved to be one of the most improved units on the team as the Wildcats’ averaged 180 yards rushing per game, a figure that ranked 36th nationally and fourth in the Big 12 Conference. Dickey came to K-State after capping his fourth year at Utah with an undefeated 13-0 campaign and a win over No. 4 Alabama in the Sugar Bowl. He coached in the Pac-10 for 13 years before heading to Utah, spending 12 years at his alma mater, Arizona, and one year at Washington. He began his coaching career after playing one season for the Pittsburgh Steelers during the 1987 NFL strike. In 1988, he worked at Arizona as a GA before tutoring the offensive line at Scottsdale Community College in 1989 and at Northern Arizona from 1990-91. In his playing days, Dickey started at offensive guard at Arizona from 1983-84 – compiling a streak of 1,230 consecutive offensive plays, including all 840 offensive plays of the 1983 season. He was named a Second Team All-Pac-10 performer in 1984 and was Arizona’s Offensive Most Valuable Player. Dickey, who earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration from Arizona in 1987, is married to the former Lisa Bradshaw, a native of Jetmore, Kansas, and a member of the Arizona women’s basketball team from 1983-85. The couple has five children, daughters Jazmin Wagner, Tasha and Shyanne, son Charles Jr., and son-in-law Alan Wagner. A daughter, Chanel, passed away at the age of three. Tasha played basketball at K-State during the 2011-12 season and is the current Director of Video Services for the women’s basketball program.

32 ND YEAR 18 BOWL GAMES TWO CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIPS

A former All-American lineman for the Wildcats in the 1970s, interior defensive line coach Mo Latimore is the longest tenured assistant coach in the Big 12 Conference and second-longest tenured assistant in the country as he enters his 32nd season at Kansas State in 2015. Latimore has been a fixture at Kansas State since returning to his alma mater in 1994 following a five-year stint at Missouri. He has played an integral role in Kansas State’s ascent to one of the nation’s elite programs, helping the Wildcats to 12 seasons of nine or more wins and 16 bowl games. He has also been a big reason for K-State’s strong presence on defense and has mentored lines that helped the Wildcats rank among the nation’s top 10 in total defense several times, including seven top-five rankings (1995, 1997-2002). During the last 20 seasons, Latimore has helped coach four AllAmericans, including first-team honorees Tim Colston (1995) and Mario Fatafehi (2000), two conference Defensive Newcomers of the Year (Fatafehi in 1999 and Tank Reese in 2001) and one conference Defensive Player of the Year (Colston; 1995). Latimore has tutored an All-Big 12 defensive tackle each of the last four seasons, including two-time selection Travis Britz in 2013 and 2014. Britz started 10 games as a junior in 2014 before an injury sidelined him the rest of the year, but he still managed to come away with 27 tackles, including a career-high tying three sacks. Needing to replace Britz, Latimore tutored and plugged in former walk-on Will Geary, and the line didn’t skip a beat as it helped the Wildcat defense rank second in the conference in scoring defense and third in both total and red zone defense. In addition to Britz, six other Wildcat defenders have earned all-conference honors under Latimore in the last seven seasons, including Vai Lutui, Ray Kibble, Jeffrey Fitzgerald, Ian Campbell, Eric Childs and Brandon Harold. Britz was a 13-game starter in 2013 that made 37 tackles, and he was the national leader with four blocked kicks. Britz followed in Lutui’s footsteps, who was also a 13-game starter the year prior that helped K-State rank first in the Big 12 in scoring defense, second in rushing defense and win the Big 12 title for the second time in school history. Kibble was a mainstay in the middle in 2011 and a big part of K-State’s 10-win season and berth in the Cotton Bowl. Defensive tackle Raphael Guidry also made a lasting impact on special teams that season by setting a new K-State record with five blocked kicks. Campbell earned three straight all-conference awards and left Kansas State as one of the program’s best defensive ends. Harold was one of the top freshmen defenders in the country in 2008 and led the nation in sacks and tackles for loss among freshmen defensive linemen. In 2005, protégé Alphonso Moran received Big 12 All-Freshman honors as well as Honorable Mention Freshman All-America accolades from Sporting News, and, in 2006, Campbell was selected as a consensus First Team All-Big 12 performer as well as the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year by the Houston Chronicle. Campbell again added first-team honors in 2007, while defensive end Rob Jackson also garnered all-league accolades in 2008. In his first season back at his alma mater, Latimore helped guide the Wildcats to the nation’s top ranking in total defense, while also coaching Colston to Third Team All-America honors from the Associated Press. In 1995, Latimore helped Colston become the first defensive lineman in school history to earn First Team All-America accolades and Big Eight Defensive Player of the Year honors. Beginning in 1997, Latimore coached at least one all-conference linemen for six consecutive seasons, including three first-team honorees. Fatafehi became the first of two Latimore protégés to earn Big 12 Newcomer of the Year honors. In 2000, he coached a defensive line that saw three of its four starters (Monty Beisel, Chris Johnson and Fatafehi) earn All-Big 12 honors, while Fatafehi was Latimore’s second First Team All-American in six seasons. Also, the line recorded 39 sacks and helped the Cats finish fourth nationally in total defense. Latimore saw his second player, Reese, earn Big 12 Defensive Newcomer of the Year honors in 2001, as well as first

team all-league recognition in both 2001 and 2002. The 2006 campaign brought even more success as Latimore’s unit was at the forefront of a defense that led the Big 12 in sacks and ranked sixth nationally with 40, including a school-record 11.5 by Campbell. The 2007 line ranked second in the Big 12 in sacks, again led by Campbell. Latimore began his coaching career at K-State in 1976 under Ellis Rainsberger as a graduate assistant. After 10 years in various roles on the Kansas State staff, Latimore moved to UTEP in 1986 under Bob Stull, where he coached the defensive line for three seasons. He helped the Miners to the school’s first 10-win season in 1988, which cumulated in the school’s first bowl game in 21 years – the 1988 Independence Bowl. In 1989, Latimore moved with Stull to Missouri, where he coached until 1993. One of the top linemen in K-State history, Latimore earned Third Team All-America honors and First Team All-Big Eight accolades while also serving as team captain in 1971. Following his collegiate career, he played in the Senior Bowl and North-South Bowl before being drafted in the seventh round by the New York Jets. He went on to play four years in the Canadian Football League with Calgary, Saskatchewan and Hamilton. Latimore transferred to K-State prior to the 1970 season after two years at Hutchinson Junior College. In 2013, Latimore was inducted into the Hutchinson Quarterback Club Hall of Fame. A native of Byron, Georgia, Latimore, earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education in 1976. He is married to the former D’Anne Mitchell. The couple has two children, M.L. and Mallory, a daughter-in-law Christy and grandsons Talor and Camden.

 Game Notes • A capacity crowd of 52,830 attended tonight’s game... The sellout crowd was the fifth-straight for a season opener, the 14th consecutive sellout dating back to 2012 and its 22nd sellout since the 2009 season... It was also the eighth-largest crowd in school history. • The Wildcats took a 28-10 lead into the locker room at halftime as they pushed their streak of consecutive games won when leading at the half to 40 games... Since 1990, the Cats have protected a halftime lead in 166 of their 171 (.971) games when leading at the half. • The Wildcats were 7-for-7 in the red zone Saturday evening... Dating back to the 2011 season, Kansas State is 163-for-186 in the red zone with 125 of those scores being touchdowns... During the 2013 season, the Wildcats were perfect on four or more red zone trips in four games, while they were just 1-for-1 in last season’s opener against North Dakota State. • Quarterback Jake Waters moved into 13th place all-time at K-State with 2,692 passing yards, passing Dan Manucci, who threw for 2,505 yards from 1977-78. • DeMarcus Robinson earned his first career start, rushing 11 times for 49 yards... Robinson became the first running back since at least 1993 that made his first-career start in a season opener of his senior year. • Tyler Lockett recorded one reception, a nine-yard touchdown in the first quarter... He is now one touchdown shy of tying for third in school history.

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Backed by a dominant performance by Wildcat signal-caller Jake Waters, K-State rolled Stephen F. Austin, 55-16, in front of 52,830 faithful at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. Finding success both through the air and on the ground, Waters finished the day accounting for 278 of the Wildcats’ 478 total yards with four scores in a little over three quarters of play. He was an efficient 19-of-28 for 223 yards and two touchdowns, completing passes to eight different receivers on the night, and picked up another 55 yards and two scores via the ground game on a team-high 17 carries. The 55 points were the most scored by the Wildcats in a home-opener since Sept. 22, 2001, when K-State rung up 64 points in a shutout over New Mexico State. HOW IT HAPPENED | First Half • K-State promptly marched down the field to score their first of four TD’s in the first half. Keyed by DeMarcus Robinson, who accounted for 40 of the drive’s 69 yards, the Wildcats’ early 7-0 lead came via Waters connecting with Tyler Lockett for a 9-yard score. • The Wildcat defense stifled the Lumberjacks’ offense early on, holding them to 21 yards on 12 plays in their first three drives. • K-State extended its lead to 14-0 thanks to a Waters 5-yard run that capped off a 12-play, 60-yard drive in 6:40. The Wildcats would then make it three-straight scoring drives and 21-0 soon after a Lumberjacks’ three-and-out, as Charles Jones took it to the house from 15-yards out. • Scoring a TD for the fourth-consecutive drive, Waters picked up his second rushing touchdown with a one-yard goal line plunge. The 28-7 K-State lead would be cut down to 28-10 after the Lumberjacks picked up a 28-yard field goal in their final drive of the half. HOW IT HAPPENED | Second Half • Waters picked up his fourth touchdown of the night by connecting with wideout Kody Cook for a 22-yard score – the redshirt junior’s first career TD to go along with three receptions and 44 yards on the night – the Wildcats extended their lead to 35-10. • The Wildcats would regain possession only a play later at the Lumberjacks’ 22-yard line, as Randall Evans forced a fumble for the first turnover of the game for either side. Jones took over from there, running the ball three-consecutive times to the tune of 22 yards and his second touchdown run of the night – this one from four yards out to make the score 42-10. • Forcing a turnover of their own after Collin Garrett picked off a tipped Waters’ pass, Stephen F. Austin closed the gap to 42-16 as Johnson scampered in for a 30-yard score. • The fourth quarter saw two Jack Cantele field goals and a Joe Hubener to Steven West 15-yard connection – first career visits to pay dirt for both Wildcats.

• The Wildcats have now won seven-straight games in the series, their longest winning streak since winning 10 straight from 1994-2003... The Wildcats have won five of their last six Big 12 openers. • Iowa State took a 28-20 lead into the locker room at halftime... It was the first time the Wildcats allowed at least 28 points in a half to the Cyclones since the second half of the 2005 contest... K-State turned things around defensively as it shut out the Cyclones in the second half, keeping them off the board for a half in a second straight year (first half in 2013). • This was K-State’s first come-from-behind win since a 53-50, four-overtime win against Texas A&M in 2011 (trailed 31-21 in the fourth quarter)... It was the first double-digit comeback win on the road since overcoming a 20-7 deficit at North Texas in 2010, a 49-41 victory. • Senior quarterback Jake Waters made his 15th career start under center for the Wildcats, rushing 20 times for a career-best 138 yards and two touchdowns... He bettered his previous career best in rushing by 64 yards as his previous high was 74 yards in last year’s West Virginia game... He tied his career high with two rushing touchdowns, while he had a career-long 25-yard rush... Waters went 16-of-29 for 239 yards through the air. • Senior wide receiver Tyler Lockett hauled in six receptions for 136 yards... It was his 10th career 100-yard game, which ties the school record held by Jordy Nelson (2005-07) and Quincy Morgan (1999-2000).

AMES, Iowa (AP) -- Jake Waters ran for an 8-yard touchdown with 1:30 left to push 20th-ranked Kansas State past host Iowa State 32-28. Waters threw for 239 yards and ran for a career-high 138 yards for the Wildcats (2-0, 1-0 Big 12). They trailed by as much as 28-13 late in the first half before Waters rescued them on a game-winning drive. Waters followed a key 23-yard completion to Tyler Lockett with a 25-yard run with just under two minutes left. Waters then capped an 80-yard drive that took just 1:31 with his second touchdown run of the day. Jarvis West caught and threw touchdown passes and ran a punt back for a third TD for Iowa State (0-2, 0-1), which was held scoreless in the second half. It was a tough loss for the Cyclones: They nearly knocked off a ranked opponent just a week after losing by 20 to FCS school North Dakota State. Kansas State’s Randall Evans ripped the ball away from West for an interception with 9:15 left. The Wildcats went 54 yards in 74 seconds, moving within 28-26 on a 4-yard TD run by Charles Jones. Waters looked like he had more than enough space to tie the game on a 2-point conversion run. But Kamari Cotton-Moya -- who was ejected from last week’s loss for targeting -- sprinted to the hole, turned Waters sideways at the goal line and preserved Iowa State’s lead. That seemed like it would be the game’s key play. But Lockett’s crucial reception, which held up upon review, set the athletic Waters up to close the game out with his feet. Jones added 75 yards rushing for the Wildcats. Iowa State was in need of a decent showing after allowing 506 yards and getting shut out for the final 44 minutes last week. The Wildcats made it look way too easy way too soon. Lockett went 57 yards off a short catch just four plays in, and Jones walked in untouched from four yards out for a quick 7-0 lead. The Wildcats tacked on a pair of field goals before Iowa State finally woke up. The Cyclones flipped things around by relying on West’s versatility. West kicked off his career day with a leaping 17-yard TD catch. He then took a punt 82 yards for a touchdown and a 14-13 lead early in the second quarter. West capped a brilliant first half with a perfectly thrown 29-yard TD pass to Allen Lazard off a double reverse. That made it 28-13 Iowa State, thrilling a capacity crowd that once seemed resigned to defeat. West is just the fourth player since 1996 with a passing, receiving and punt return touchdown in the same game, according to STATS LCC. But Kansas State pulled within 28-20 just before halftime on a plunge from Waters, and the Wildcats defense stuffed Iowa State on a fourth-and-1 to open the second half. Iowa State answered by stuffing Waters on a fourth and inches early in the fourth quarter, prompting Cyclones coach Paul Rhoads to run onto the field while furiously pumping his fists. It was a short-lived celebration for Rhoads, who fell to 0-6 against Kansas State.

• A capacity crowd of 53,046 attended tonight’s game, which marked the fifth-largest crowd in stadium history andthe 15th-consecutive sellout at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. • K-State extended its scoring streak to 219 consecutive games on a 3-yard touchdown run by DeMarcus Robinson... It is the 11th-longest active streak in the nation and the second-longest in the Big 12... The score was the first of Robinson’s career. • The Wildcats were only 2-for-5 in the red zone Thursday after starting the season 12-of-12 with 10 touchdowns... The Wildcats came up empty in the red zone for the first time this season when K-State threw an interception from the twoyard line in the first quarter. • Quarterback Jake Waters became the 10th quarterback in school history to record 200 completions, 3,000 passing yards and 20 passing touchdowns, but the quickest ever in terms of games played (16)... He also became the secondfastest QB in school history to 3,000 career passing yards when he hit the mark on career pass attempt No. 331.

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- In a back-and-forth defensive game that saw both teams average less than five yards a play on offense, No. 20 K-State came up just short against No. 5 Auburn, falling to the Tigers 20-14. Taking in the primetime affair were 53,046 at Bill Snyder Family Stadium – the fifth-largest attendance in program history. For the Wildcats, they kept the contest close thanks to a stellar performance by their defense unit. The collective effort saw the Tigers get held to a season-low output in rushing yards, as Auburn managed 128 yards on 45 attempts, which ended the program’s FBS-leading streak of 13-straight games of at least 200 yards rushing. The Tigers would finish the game with 359 total yards and one turnover. On offense, K-State struggled to find any room on the ground, relying mostly on the arm of Jake Waters, who finished the contest with 245 yards passing on 24-of-40 attempts. Curry Sexton and Tyler Lockett finished the evening with 121 yards and 45 yards receiving, respectively, with the former hauling in a game- and career-high 11 receptions. HOW IT HAPPENED | First Half • K-State’s defense came out rolling on all cylinders, holding the Auburn attack to 38 total yards in its first three drives. Despite the strong start, K-State trailed 3-0 after the first quarter. • Auburn’s first points of the evening came as result of a Waters fumble that ended with the Tigers recovering the ball on the Wildcats’ 21-yard line. From there, Auburn failed to move the ball past the K-State 17 with its drive ending in a Daniel Carlson 34-yard field goal. • The Wildcats would bounce back with a strong drive, moving the ball 74 yards in 10 plays only to have the drive end with yet another turnover. On 2nd-and-goal from the 1-yard line, Waters looked to hit Lockett on a slant, but Lockett was unable to corral the pass, tipping the ball into the air for a Tigers’ interception by cornerback Jonathan Jones. • From there, action hit a short lull as K-State was unable to capitalize on a Dakorey Johnson interception off a deflected Nick Marshall pass. The Wildcats’ defense would not relent, forcing a punt from Auburn on the ensuing drive that saw Lockett work his way 26 yards to the K-State 43-yard line. • The return would kick start the Wildcats’ first scoring drive of the evening – a 6-play, 57-yard drive that ended with a 3-yard plunge by DeMarcus Robinson. • Auburn responded quickly with a touchdown of their own, driving the ball 75 yards down the field in 3:22 to make it 10-7. Evading a blitz from cornerback Randall Evans, Marshall connected with Ricardo Louis from 40 yards out for the score. HOW IT HAPPENED | Second Half • Trading punts to open the half, K-State would be the first team with an opportunity to score, but were unable to convert yet again as the Wildcats missed another field goal. • Auburn extended its lead to 17-7, when a Marshall fade to D’haquille Williams in the corner of the end zone, scoring from 9 yards out. • Auburn added another three in the fourth to push its advantage to 20-7, but the Wildcats would make the game interesting late, cutting the lead to 20-14 with 3:49 remaining on a Charles Jones 1-yard score. Sexton played a major role in the drive, snagging four passes for 47 yards including three for first downs. K-State’s offense did not see the field again though, as Auburn converted on a 3rd-and-9 on the following drive to run out the clock for its third victory of the season.

• The K-State defense held the nation’s seventh-best rushing attack to 59 yards on 31 attempts (1.9 per carry)... Since 2011, the Wildcat defense has held 17 of its 43 opponents to under 100 yards, including two this season (SFA: 69 yards). • Deante Burton blocked UTEP’s first punt attempt of the day... It was the Wildcats’ first blocked kick of the season and first blocked punt since Weston Hiebert last season against Baylor. • Tyler Lockett hauled in four receptions for 84 yards... Lockett now has 2,469 career receiving yards as he jumped from fifth to third place in school history on Saturday... He passed his uncle, Aaron (2,400; 1998-2001) for fourth and Michael Smith (2,457; 1988-91) for third. • Lockett also tallied 143 punt-return yards, the secondmost in school history and 29 yards short of tying the school record of 172 held by David Allen against Texas in 1998... His yardage included a 58-yard touchdown, which was the Wildcats’ nation-leading 92nd non-offensive touchdown since 1999... It was the Wildcats’ first punt-return touchdown since Tramaine Thompson went 89 yards last year against Louisiana. • Charles Jones rushed 12 times for 76 yards and three touchdowns... His three rushing touchdowns today are tied for 11th in school history, one shy of a tie for third and two shy of the school record... Of his eight rushing touchdowns this year, six have been out of the Wildcat formation.

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- K-State (3-1, 1-0) closed out its non-conference slate with a bang, romping the UTEP Miners (2-2, 0-0), 58-28, in front of 52,899 faithful at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. The No. 25-ranked Wildcats dominated play, scoring 42 unanswered points on six-consecutive drives at one point en route to their third win of the season. For K-State, it was a complete effort that saw the offense, defense and special teams all excel in their respective areas. On the offensive side, the scoring was backed by an exceptional performance from the Wildcat rushing attack, which combined for 188 yards and six scores on 37 attempts. Running backs Charles Jones and DeMarcus Robinson, who each averaged over six yards per carry, accounted for 132 of those yards with the former crossing the plane on three occasions and the latter once. The Wildcat defense was just as dominant, allowing only one first Miner first down in the entire first half that saw K-State take a commanding 31-0 lead into the break. The Miners, who entered the game averaging a gaudy 314 yards per game on the ground, were held to 59 yards total on 31 attempts with almost all their scoring coming in the late stages of the game. On special teams, wideout Tyler Lockett led a special teams unit that, along with a punt block on defense, totaled 150 yards on five punt returns with 143 of those yards coming from Lockett himself, including two returns of 50-plus yards that was highlighted by a 58-yard return for a score. HOW IT HAPPENED | First Half • After a 25-yard Matthew McCrane field goal and a 1-yard Jake Waters run, the Wildcats’ offense closed out the second quarter with three-straight scoring drives. Jones, first, pushed the lead to 17-0 as he took it to the house from three yards out in the Wildcat formation – his first of three rushing touchdowns on the day. Not even three minutes later, the Wildcats went up 24-0, as this time there was no doubt about a Lockett punt return as he scampered down the field for a 58-yard score. • After UTEP picked up its first and only first down of the half, the Wildcats forced another punt that nearly was returned by Lockett again – this one returned 54 yards. Starting the drive on the UTEP 20-yard line, Jones scored from nine yards out, which included being carried the last three yards by left tackle Cody Whitehair, on K-State’s fifth play of the drive to make the score 31-0. HOW IT HAPPENED | Second Half • The Wildcat offense continued its scoring rampage, opening the half with another set of threestraight scoring drives. First, Jones capped off a strong performance with his third rushing scoring of the day, this one a four-yard plunge to make the score 38-0. • Waters would get a score of his own on the next Wildcat drive, connecting with Zach Trujillo for a 44-yard touchdown to push the score to 45-0 with a little under 10 minutes to play in the third quarter. • Following UTEP’s first touchdown of the afternoon, K-State’s response came on the ground via DeMarcus Robinson, who exploded from 40 yards out to give the Wildcats a 52-7 lead. • Lastly, backup quarterback Joe Hubener led K-State 74 yards down the field in eight plays, concluding the drive himself with a 2-yard score on the ground and a 58-14 Wildcat advantage.

• Jake Waters threw for four touchdowns to tie the school record, one that has been accomplished 13 times... He now has 25 in his career to move into a tie for eighth place in school history... He also moved into 11th place in school history in career passing yards. • Waters also rushed 17 times for a game-high 105 yards and a score... It was his second-career 100-yard game as he had 138 yards earlier this season at Iowa State... His total included a career-long 50-yarder. • Tyler Lockett grabbed 12 receptions to tie for fifth in school history... It was his 11th 100yard receiving game, which broke the school record... His two scores gave him 21 for his career, which moved him into third place in school history. • Lockett also moved into 10th place in Big 12 history in career kickoff-return yards. • Curry Sexton recorded a career-high 128 yards and two touchdowns... He bettered his 121-yard output against Auburn earlier this season. • Lockett and Sexton paired up for the 10th double 100-yard receiving game in school history... The same duo recorded a double 100-yard game against West Virginia last season... Lockett and Sexton had 253 combined yards, which were the fifth most in school history. • Morgan Burns and Travis Green each came up with two interceptions... It was the first time two Wildcats had two interceptions in the same game since Tysyn Hartman and Ty Zimmerman each had two against Texas in 2010.

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- K-State (4-1, 2-2) continued its hot start to the season, steamrolling Texas Tech (2-3, 0-2), 45-13, in front of 52,726 faithful at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. The Wildcats put in a near flawless effort that saw K-State dominate on both sides of the ball, including a season-high 535 total yards on offense – 290 through the air and 245 on the ground. As has been the case for most of the season, the Wildcats were ignited by an impressive performance from quarterback Jake Waters. The senior signal-caller was unstoppable, racking up 395 total yards and five total touchdowns on 24-of-31 passing for 290 yards and 105 yards rushing on 17 carries. Waters, in the process, tied a school record with four passing touchdowns and his total offense was the most by a K-State quarterback since Josh Freeman gained a school-record 501 yards on Oct. 25, 2008 against Oklahoma. The strong effort from Waters opened up the way for highlight reel showings from several Wildcats. Tyler Lockett and Curry Sexton both eclipsed the century mark as well as hauled in two scores. Lockett nabbed a game-high 12 receptions for 125 yards, while Sexton racked up a career-best 128 yards receiving on nine receptions. On the ground, Charles Jones and DeMarcus Robinson complemented Waters with a combined 122 yards rushing. HOW IT HAPPENED | First Half • Texas Tech looked primed to take the lead on its opening drive, but saw its drive end with a Morgan Burns interception in the end zone to end an 11-play, 63-yard drive. • On the subsequent drive, K-State wasted little time taking advantage as Waters connected with Sexton on a 48-yard strike to give the Wildcats a 7-0 lead. • The Wildcat defense took over from there, throttling Texas Tech to 13 total yards on nine plays in its next two drives. The effort allowed Waters to lead K-State down the field for a score and a 14-0 advantage early in the second quarter on his own 4-yard score, which included a career-long 50-yard run. • Not even a minute later, K-State’s offense was given the ball back thanks to a tipped Webb pass landing in the arms of defensive back Travis Green. K-State would tack on another three points for a 17-0 lead via a 27-yard Matt McCrane field goal. • Texas Tech responded with a score of its own, making it a 17-7 game, as Webb hit Jakeem Grant from 22 yards out, but the Wildcat offense would close out the half on a 15-yard pass from Waters to Lockett to extend their lead to 24-7. HOW IT HAPPENED | Second Half • Action in the third quarter hit a lull until Waters and Lockett connected for the second time on the night to balloon the K-State lead to 31-7. Scoring from 14 yards out, the 8-play, 66-yard drive saw Waters and Lockett hook up three times for 25 yards. • K-State’s defensive unit was relentless all night, forcing another turnover in the third – this time Webb misfired deep, giving Green his second interception of the night. • Unable to turn the turnover into points, Texas Tech responded with a touchdown and a failed 2-point conversion to make the score 31-13 at the start of the fourth quarter. • Bouncing back from the turnover, Waters and Sexton led K-State to a 38-13 lead thanks to a circus one-handed catch by the latter from 3 yards out. • K-State would close out the game with yet another score, a 2-yard plunge by Robinson.

• With the win, K-State has won two of the last three meetings against OU, including two-straight in Norman... It is the first time the Wildcats have won two-straight games at Oklahoma since 1994 and 1997... K-State has started 3-0 in conference play for the third time in the last four seasons and the fifth overall under head coach Bill Snyder. • The Cats took a 21-17 advantage into the locker room at halftime as they extended their streak of consecutive games won when leading at the half to 42... It is the second-longest active streak in the nation behind Oklahoma (46). • Jake Waters moved into KState’s career top-10 list for completions and total offense... He passed Jonathan Beasley (1996-97, 99-2000) for 10th place in school history in career completions, a mark that now stands at 267... He passed Darrell Dickey (1979-82) for 10th place in school history in career passing yards, a mark that now stands at 4,583. • Glenn Gronkowski hauled in a 62-yard TD reception... Of his four career scores, three have gone for 50 or more yards. • Danzel McDaniel came up with his first-career interception and scored on a 5-yard touchdown return to put KState ahead, 14-7, in the second quarter... It was K-State’s first pick-six of the season, while it was K-State’s nationleading 93rd non-offensive touchdown since 1999. • Jonathan Truman had a career-high 17 tackles, the most by a Wildcat since Josh Buhl had 18 vss. Marshall in 2003.

NORMAN, Okla. -- Despite being out-gained by nearly 150 total yards, No. 14 Kansas State took advantage of several mistakes by No. 11 Oklahoma to pull off a 31-30 victory before 85,019 at Memorial Stadium. The win gave the Wildcats’ back-to-back wins in Norman for the first time since 1994 and 1997. The Sooners threw two interceptions, including one returned five yards for a touchdown by defensive back Danzel McDaniel in the first quarter, and place kicker Michael Hunnicutt missed two field goals, including a 19-yard attempt with just 3:53 remaining, and had an extra point blocked by junior defensive lineman Travis Britz. The block, the fifth of Britz’s career to tie him with Raphael Guidry (2011) for the most in school history, proved to be the difference. On the other hand, the Wildcats did not turn the ball over and converted on all three scoring chances in the red zone. The team also made its lone field goal – a 27-yard attempt by Matthew McCrane in the third quarter – and knocked through all four extra point attempts. The squad had just two penalties for 20 yards. K-State (5-1, 3-0 Big 12) is now 3-0 in Big 12 play for the third time in four seasons and the fifth time overall under head coach Bill Snyder, while Oklahoma (5-2, 2-2 Big 12) lost for the second time in three games and the first time at home this season. It marked just the sixth defeat in 95 home games under head coach Bob Stoops. The Sooners are now 14-2 at home under Stoops versus ranked Big 12 foes with both losses coming to the Wildcats (2012 and 2014). The Wildcats were once again led by a gritty effort by senior quarterback Jake Waters, who accounted for all three offensive touchdowns (two passing and one rushing). He finished the day with 225 yards through the air on 15-of-23 attempts with two scores, while he added 51 yards and a touchdown on the ground. He moved into the record book in two categories, as he is now 10th in both total yards (4,583) and completions (267) in school history. Waters’ 15 completions went to just three receivers, as seniors Tyler Lockett and Curry Sexton each had tremendous days, while sophomore fullback Glenn Gronkowski took advantage of his one reception rumbling 62 yards for the Wildcats’ first score in the first quarter. Sexton led all wide outs with eight catches for 77 yards, while Lockett added six receptions for a team-high 86 yards. On the ground, running backs DeMarcus Robinson and Charles Jones complemented Waters’ effort with a combined 112 yards rushing with Robinson averaging 8.2 yards on eight carries. Defensively, K-State was led by senior linebacker Jonathan Truman’s career-best 17 tackles. It was the most tackles by a Wildcat since Josh Buhl had 18 against Marshall in 2003. Truman now has 30 tackles in his last two meetings with the Sooners. McDaniel and fellow defensive back Morgan Burns each recorded interceptions with McDaniel returning his pick five yards for a touchdown. It marked the 93rd non-offensive touchdown by K-State since 1999, which leads the nation. Oklahoma out-gained K-State, 533-385, including 335 through the air. Quarterback Trevor Knight completed 26-of-32 attempts for 318 yards passing and three touchdowns, while receiver Sterling Shepard had 15 catches for 197 yards with a score. Running back Samaje Perine paced the Sooner ground attack with 89 yards and a touchdown.

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- K-State notched its fourth-straight victory, shutting out Texas 23-0 in front of 52,879 at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. Held to only 196 total yards of offense, the Longhorns were handed their first shutout since 2004 by the No. 11-ranked Wildcats, who notched their 500th victory in program history with the win. A defensive affair that saw K-State lead 13-0 at the half, the Wildcats stymied a Texas offensive unit that came into the contest averaging 370 yards of total offense per game. Highlighted by strong efforts from Jonathan Truman and Dante Barnett, who had eight and seven tackles, respectively, with the latter also pitching in four pass break ups, K-State allowed 90 yards rushing on 27 attempts en route to its first shutout since Sept. 17, 2011, and first conference shutout since Nov. 8, 2003. The Wildcats, 6-1 overall, are now 4-0 Big 12 play for the third time in the past four seasons under head coach Bill Snyder, while Texas fell to 3-5 overall and 2-3 in Big 12 play. Disciplined play once again played a major role in the Cats remaining unbeaten in Big 12 play, as they committed zero turnovers and committed only 3 penalties for 25 yards. On the other hand, Texas coughed up a fumble, as well as failed to convert from fourth-and-one at K-State’s 14, and racked up 66 yards on seven penalties. The Longhorns were out-possessed 39:14 to 20:46, and were also unable to convert their two red zone possessions to points, while allowing K-State to go 4-for-4 inside the 20. Jake Waters once again put in a spirited effort, leading the K-State offense with 224 yards through the air on 19-of-30 passing, including connecting with Tyler Lockett eight times for 103 yards, who moved into third in school history in career receptions (186), and Deante Burton and Curry Sexton four times each. K-State’s scoring came via a perfect and career-best three-for-three day by kicker Matt McCrane, as well as short scores on the ground by DeMarcus Robinson and Charles Jones. The Wildcats, who averaged 3.3 yards on the ground, battled to outgain the Texas offense 367-to196 in total yards. Longhorn signal-caller Tyrone Swoopes, fresh off of racking up 416 yards of total offense versus Iowa State, was contained to 137 total yards, while halfbacks Johnathan Gray and Malcolm Brown were held to 24 and 21 yards rushing, respectively.

• This was K-State’s first shut out since Sept. 17, 2011 vs. Kent State (37-0)... The last time K-State shut out a conference opponent was Nov. 8, 2003, at Iowa State (45-0), while the last time it shut out a conference opponent at home was Nov. 20, 1999, against Missouri (66-0).

HOW IT HAPPENED | First Half • Forcing a three-and-out on the game’s opening drive that included two Texas false start penalties, K-State took advantage of decent field position at its own 31-yard line to grab a 3-0 lead. The 11-play, 67-yard drive chewed up 6:13 off the clock, as McCrane hit a 19-yard field goal. • Despite consecutive three-and-outs from its offense, the Texas defense limited the damage to another K-State field goal, as McCrane was good from 30 yards. • The Longhorns’ first drive of the second quarter saw them enter the red zone for the first time all game, but a costly holding penalty made it second-and-19, and followed by sack Elijah Lee. • After another Longhorn three-and-out, the Wildcats pushed their advantage to 13-0, as Robinson cashed in from three yards out.

• Jake Waters made his 20th career start under center for the Wildcats, going 19-of-30 through the air for 224 yards... He moved into ninth place in K-State history in career passing yards, passing both Paul Watson (3,963; 1988-91) and Darrell Dickey (4,098; 197982) as he now has 4,124 yards.

HOW IT HAPPENED | Second Half • Texas saw its first drive of the second half end after a botched reverse resulted in a K-State fumble recovery by Valentino Coleman. The Wildcats would capitalize by tacking on another three points,as McCrane converted from 38 yards out. • Texas responded with its best drive of the afternoon, pushing the Wildcat defense back to its own 14-yard line. The Longhorns though were unable to come away with points after Jonathan Gray was held to no gain by Jonathan Truman and Dante Barnett on fourth-and-one. • Capitalizing for a second-straight drive, K-State put the contest out of reach with a Jones one-yard plunge to make the score 23-0.

• Tyler Lockett hauled in eight receptions for 103 yards... He moved into third place in school history in career receptions, a mark that now stands at 186, as he passed his former position coach Michael Smith, who had 179 receptions from 198891... He also moved into the Big 12 career top 10 for all-purpose yards with 5,214 as he passed Texas Tech’s Taurean Henderson (5,121; 2002-05) for 10th.

SCORING SUMMARY

• Elijah Lee recorded three tackles, including a sack... He now has 3.5 sacks this season to tie for second place in school history among all freshmen (true and redshirt). • Matthew McCrane was true on all three field goals, which set a new career high.

• Morgan Burns’ kickoffreturn score extended the Wildcats’ nation-leading streak to 10 straight years they have returned a kickoff for a touchdown... It was also the second-straight home game vs. OSU that K-State has returned a kickoff for a score as Tyler Lockett returned one 100 yards vs. the Cowboys in 2012. • The Cats took a 21-7 advantage into the locker room at halftime... The Wildcats pushed their streak of consecutive games won when leading at the half to 45, which is the secondlongest active streak in the nation entering play on Saturday behind Oklahoma (46). • Jake Waters made his 21st career start under center for the Wildcats, improving to 15-6 as K-State’s starter... He moved into eighth place in school history in career completions - a mark that now stands at 305 - as he passed Dennis Morrison (294; 197072) and Paul Watson (301; 1988-91)... Waters He also improved his ranking in career total offensive yards as he is now eighth with 5,060. • Tyler Lockett moved into second place in school history in career receiving yards at 2,877 as he passed Jordy Nelson (2,822; 2005-07)... Lockett’s touchdown moved him into a tie for second place in school history with 23. • Curry Sexton hauled in nine receptions for a career-high 159 yards and a touchdown... Sexton has four career 100yard receiving games, including three this season... Sexton’s previous career high in yards was 128 earlier this season against Texas Tech.

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Kansas State coach Bill Snyder had watched Oklahoma State slice so effortless through his defense on the game’s opening drive that he wondered whether the tone had been set. Morgan Burns didn’t give him a chance to think anything more of it. The speedy cornerback returned the ensuing kickoff 86 yards for a touchdown, and that set the No. 11 Wildcats off and running. Jake Waters threw two TD passes, Charles Jones ran for two more scores and Kansas State routed the Cowboys 48-14 on Saturday night. Curry Sexton had nine catches for 159 yards and a touchdown, and Tyler Lockett had six receptions for 94 yards and a score, helping Kansas State (7-1, 5-0, No. 9 CFP) remain the lone unbeaten team in the Big 12 heading into next week’s showdown at 10th-ranked TCU. After its opening touchdown drive Oklahoma State (5-4, 3-3) never threatened on offense again. The Cowboys managed only a pick-six by Ramon Richards in the fourth quarter in losing their third straight game for the first time since the 2005 season. Tyreek Hill had 102 yards rushing and a touchdown in place of leading rusher Desmond Roland, who missed the trip following a death in his family. Daxx Garman threw for 148 yards and was picked off twice, one of them when the Cowboys were deep in Kansas State territory. Oklahoma State had only 48 yards of offense in the second half. The Wildcats have won five straight since a narrow loss to fourth-ranked Auburn, but the schedule is about to get a lot tougher. After visiting the Horned Frogs, Kansas State must travel to No. 20 West Virginia, with a game at No. 12 Baylor looming at the end of the season. In other words, the road to college football’s inaugural playoff is a bumpy one. After the Cowboys and Wildcats traded touchdowns in the opening minutes of the game, Kansas State put things away with 38 unanswered points spanning halftime. Jones started the onslaught with his first touchdown run, and Waters connected with Sexton for a 17-yard score early in the second quarter. Waters then hit Lockett from 20 yards out in the third quarter, giving Kansas State a 28-7 advantage. On that drive, Lockett passed current Packers star Jordy Nelson for second in school history in yards receiving, and tied Quincy Morgan in career touchdown catches. Lockett has 2,877 yards and 23 TD grabs, trailing only father Kevin Lockett (3,032 yards, 26 TDs) in both categories. The game truly got out of hand when the Cowboys fumbled on their next possession, and Kansas State needed three plays to go 37 yards for a score. Backup quarterback Joe Hubener added a sneak with 9 1/2 minutes to go make it 45-7, and Matt McCrane’s career-long 53-yard field goal in the final minutes gave the few fans left one last reason to cheer.

• Saturday evening’s contest between K-State and TCU was the eighth in series history as each team has won four games apiece... The Horned Frogs defeated the Wildcats for the first time since joining the Big 12 three years ago. • The 41 points allowed by KState were a season high and the most since surrendering 41 to Oklahoma last season... The Wildcats surrendered 334 rushing yards, the most since allowing 342 at Baylor in 2012, a span of 24 games. • K-State extended its scoring streak to 225 consecutive games on a 70-yard touchdown pass from Jake Waters to Tyler Lockett... It is the 11th-longest active streak in the nation and the second-longest in the Big 12. • Tyler Lockett hauled in 11 receptions for 196 yards and one touchdown... He broke the school’s career receiving yardage record with 3,073, breaking the record held by his father, Kevin, who had 3,032 yards from 1993-96... His total yardage this evening ranked as the seventh most in a game in school history and his third highest career total... He carded his 13th career 100yard receiving game, extending his own school record. • Lockett and Curry Sexton (114 yards) teamed for the 12th double 100-yard receiving game in school history - including the second this year - while their 310 combined yards are the second most by two receivers in school history (321 by Brandon Banks and Ernie Pierce vs. Oklahoma in 2008).

FORT WORTH, Texas -- Quarterback Trevone Boykin accounted for four touchdowns to help sixthranked TCU to a 41-20 win over No. 7 K-State before a crowd of 48,012 at Amon G. Carter Stadium. The Wildcats (7-2, 5-1 Big 12) saw their five-game winning streak end with the loss, while the Horned Frogs improved to 8-1 overall and 5-1 in Big 12 play. The setback overshadowed a record-setting night for senior wide receiver Tyler Lockett, who became the school’s all-time leading receiver, surpassing his father, Kevin, with his 11-catch, 196-yard performance. Lockett now has 3,073 yards receiving in his career, which breaks the school record of 3,032 yards held by the elder Lockett from 1993-96. For TCU, Boykin was equally lethal on the ground as through the air, accounting for 342 total yards and four total touchdowns on the night. He rushed for 123 yards on 17 carries with three scores, while he completed 23-of-34 passes for 219 yards and a touchdown. Running back Aaron Green gave the Horned Frogs two 100-yard rushers, as he posted 171 yards rushing on just 18 carries. Overall, TCU out-gained K-State, 553-410, including 334 on the ground. In addition to Lockett’s record-breaking evening, wide out Curry Sexton also enjoyed a solid night with four receptions for 114 yards and a touchdown. He teamed with Lockett for the 12th double 100yard receiving game in school history, including the second this season, while their 310 combined yards are the second-most by a Wildcat receiving tandem 2008. HOW IT HAPPENED | First Half • After three straight punts to start the game, TCU opened the scoring with a 2-yard run by Boykin that capped a 6-play, 65-yard drive with a 6:06 left in the first quarter. The score was set up by a 20-yard reception by Josh Doctson and a 34-yard catch by David Porter to the K-State 2. • TCU quickly made it 14-0 after forcing another Wildcat punt, as Boykin guided a 7-play, 58-yard drive that concluded with a 10-yard touchdown reception by Porter with 1:11 left in the quarter. • K-State offense finally got on track just before the end of the first quarter, as Jake Waters hooked up with Lockett for a 70-yard catch with just 42 second remaining to cap a 3-play, 70-yard drive. • The teams traded punts until place-kicker Jaden Oberkrom gave TCU a 17-7 lead with 50 seconds before halftime to finish a 10-play drive. HOW IT HAPPENED | Second Half • TCU quickly extended the lead to 24-7 start the second half, as Boykin capped a 5-play, 60-yard drive with a 19-yard touchdown run with 13:36 left in the third quarter. • K-State stayed within striking distance at 24-14, as Waters hit Sexton for a 15-yard touchdown strike to finish off an 8-play, 67-yard drive with 9:30 remaining in the third quarter. The drive was highlighted by a 21-yard reception by Lockett on second-and-12 from the K-State 31. • TCU again answered with a quick score, as Green had a 65-yard scoring run on just the drive’s third play for a 31-14 lead with 8:39 in the third quarter. • Oberkrom converted on his second field goal of the game – a 26-yard attempt – to give the Horned Frogs a 34-14 advantage just 10 seconds into the fourth quarter before TCU pushed the lead to 41-14 on a Boykin 23-yard touchdown run with 8:39 left in the game • The Wildcats finished off the scoring with 1:36 remaining as back-up quarterback Joe Hubener scored on a 6-yard run. The play was set up by a 74-yard pass play from Hubener to Sexton.

• The win marked K-State’s 16th season with eight or more victories, including four straight and 14 in head coach Bill Snyder’s 23 seasons. • Tyler Lockett returned a punt 48 yards for a touchdown... It was his second punt-return score this season as he is tied for third in school history... It was also K-State’s nation-leading 95th non-offensive touchdown since 1999. • Jake Waters finished the contest with a career high 400 passing yards... His total ranks sixth in school history, while it was the first 400-yard game by a Wildcat since Josh Freeman in 2008... He has thrown for at least 200 yards in each of the last 11 games, the longest streak by a Bill Snydercoached quarterback. • Tyler Lockett recorded his second-straight game with 196 yards, which is tied for the seventh most in school history... He extended his own school record for career receiving yards, a mark that now stands at 3,269, while he moved into second place in career receptions at 213, passing current Green Bay Packer Jordy Nelson (206; 2005-07) and now sitting four shy of the record set by his father, Kevin (1993-96)... He also topped the 1,000-yard receiving mark for the secondstraight season, becoming the second Wildcat to accomplish the feat (Quincy Morgan, 1999-2000). • Matthew McCrane made four field goals to tie for the second most in school history... He broke the school record for points by a freshman with 66, topping Martin Gramatica’s 56-point output in 1994.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- Jake Waters threw for a career-high 400 yards and a touchdown, Tyler Lockett returned a punt for a score and No. 12 Kansas State held on to beat sloppy West Virginia, 26-20. Kansas State rebounded from a loss at TCU to move into a first-place tie with the idle Horned Frogs with two weeks left in the regular season. Waters was 22-of-34 passing. Lockett caught 10 passes for 196 yards, and Matthew McCrane kicked four field goals. The Mountaineers have lost three straight after winning four in a row. West Virginia committed four turnovers, with two of them occurring inside the Kansas State 30, and Josh Lambert missed a 40-yard field goal try. West Virginia’s Skyler Howard threw two touchdown passes after Clint Trickett left with what coach Dana Holgorsen said was a concussion. Trickett didn’t return after throwing his second interception in the third quarter. Trickett has now gone 10 consecutive quarters without a TD pass. Lockett returned a punt 43 yards just before halftime to put the Wildcats ahead 17-3. West Virginia punter Nick O’Toole was supposed to kick the ball to the right, but Lockett fielded the ball on the other side of the field and scored untouched. Howard rallied the Mountaineers on his first series, running 16 yards to set up his 7-yard TD toss to Kevin White that trimmed the Wildcats’ lead to 23-10 midway through the third quarter. Howard engineered a 17-play drive on the next series, but West Virginia turned it over on downs at the Kansas State 26. After McCrane missed a 22-yard field goal, Howard hit Mario Alford with a short pass, and he went 53 yards untouched to make it 23-17 with 7:23 left in the fourth quarter. But Michael Molinari’s ensuing kickoff went out of bounds. Waters hit Lockett across the middle for 28 yards to the West Virginia 25 and McCrane’s fourth field goal made it a two-possession game. Lambert made a 25-yard field goal with 53 seconds left. West Virginia then tried an onside kick that Kansas State’s Glenn Gronkowski recovered. Waters was Kansas State’s only hope on offense. The Wildcats ran 29 times for 1 yard. Kansas State used a big pass play to set up its first two scores. Kody Cook’s 32-yard grab on Kansas State’s first drive set up Waters’ 7-yard scoring toss to DeMarcus Robinson, and tight end Zach Trujillo’s 49-yard catch led to a 36-yard field goal early in the second quarter. It was Trujillo’s longest reception of the season. Before Lambert’s miss, White appeared to score on a 22-yard reception that deflected off two other players, but the play was ruled an incompletion because the ball touched the ground as Kansas State’s Dante Barnett tried to come up with it. The Wildcats also came up empty after Randall Evans’ interception when West Virginia’s Kyle Rose blocked McCrane’s 34-yard field goal try as the first half expired.

It gave K-State its 20th consecutive sellout dating back to the 2012 season... In addition, the Wildcats’ average home crowd of 53,081 fans broke the school record of 52,887 fans in 2013. • Quarterback Jake Waters threw four passing touchdowns to tie a career high (two times) and a school record (15 times). • Wide receiver Tyler Lockett broke the school career record for receptions at 222, passing his father, Kevin... His two touchdown catches gave him 26 for his career, which tied the school record, which was also held by Kevin...

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Kansas State continued its dominance over Kansas, posting its sixth consecutive win over its archrival with a 51-13 victory at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. With the win, the Wildcats tallied their 13th nine-win season under legendary head coach Bill Snyder, including the third since the start of his second tenure in 2009. The squad has now won 19 of the 23 matchups with the Jayhawks under Snyder, including 18 of the 19 meetings under his direction. Quarterback Jake Waters accounted for five touchdowns, including four through the air, in just over three quarters of work, completing 21 of 27 passes for 294 yards. Senior receivers Tyler Lockett and Curry Sexton combined for 260 of the 294 yards through the air and three touchdowns. The running game also redeemed itself against the Jayhawks, netting 194 yards on the ground, including 64 by senior DeMarcus Robinson while Charles Jones had a touchdown. Lockett, who hauled in nine receptions for 119 yards with two touchdowns, broke the school career record for receptions at 222, passing his father, Kevin, who had 217 catches from 1993-96. His two touchdown catches gave him 26 for his career, which ties the school record with the elder Lockett. He also extended his own school record for career receiving yards. All told, the offense racked up 505 yards of total offense against Kansas, which marked the second time this season that the Wildcats have eclipsed 500 or more yards of offense. The defense also did their part in the victory, holding Kansas to 196 total yards with just 57 on the ground and forcing two interceptions of quarterback Michael Cummings. Place-kicker Matthew McCrane connected on two field goals from distances of 41 and 52. McCrane became the first K-State kicker to connect on two 50-yarders in a single season since Jeff Snodgrass in 2006, while he moved into the single season top 10 list with 14 field goals. HOW IT HAPPENED | First Half • Forcing a three-and-out on the game’s opening drive, Kansas State immediately took control of the game with 6-play, 65-yard drive that was capped by a 1-yard touchdown run by Waters. • Just three plays later, K-State was once again in the end zone, as Cummings threw an interception on the Jayhawks’ second play of its second drive to Dante Barnett. Waters immediately took advantage, completing a 44-yard pass to Lockett to make it 14-0. • After Randall Evans’ intercepted Cummings at the K-State 2, Waters orchestrated a 12-play, 74-yard drive that was capped by a 41-yard field goal by McCrane to make it 17-0. • Kansas got on the board in the second quarter with a 6-play, 54-yard drive that was capped by 27-yard strike from Cummings to Nick Harwell to cut the lead to 17-6 with 8:42 before halftime. • After Morgan Burns returned the kickoff 65 yards, Charles Jones ran in from 11 yards out to give the Wildcats a 24-6 lead. • After another 3-and-out, Waters continued the offense’s great start by leading an 11-play, 68-yard drive that ended with a Waters-to-Lockett 6-yard pass-and-catch. HOW IT HAPPENED | Second Half • K-State started the second half like it left off, as Waters hit a 13-yard strike to Jones that made it 38-6 just four minutes into the third quarter. • Kansas cut it to 38-13 at the 6:32 mark with a 19-yard touchdown catch by Trent Smiley. • The Wildcats again responded with a 37-yard TD reception by Sexton from Waters. • McCrane made it 48-13 early in the fourth quarter with a 52-yard field goal. • After a KU drive stalled on its own 37, K-State concluded the scoring with a 39-yard field goal from Jack Cantele.

• The Wildcats finished the regular season third in the Big 12 with a 7-2 record... Over the last four years, Kansas State has finished in the top three of the Big 12 standings three times... Despite the loss, K-State is a Big 12-best 27-9 (.750) since round-robin play started in 2011. • Jake Waters made his 25th career start under center for the Wildcats... He finished the contest going 22-of-27 through the air for 300 yards and two touchdowns... He has thrown for at least 200 yards in each of the last 12 games, the longest by a Bill Snyder-coached quarterback and the longest streak since Josh Freeman also had a 12-game streak split between the 2007 and 2008 seasons. • Tyler Lockett broke the school’s career receiving touchdown record as he now has 27 and passed his father, Kevin, who had 26 between 1993 and 1996... With the touchdown record, he now owns all three of the school’s major career receiving records. • Lockett’s 14 receptions were a career high and tied for the third most in school history... He was one shy of tying the school record held by Jordy Nelson against Missouri State and Fresno State in 2007. • Lockett carded his 16th career 100-yard receiving game, extending his own school record, while it was his seventh this season to tie his last year’s total for second. • Tight end Zach Trujillo hauled in three passes for a career-high 88 yards, which included a 36-yard touchdown.

WACO, Texas -- Kansas State quarterback Jake Waters racked up over 300 yards of total offense and Tyler Lockett broke the school’s career receiving touchdown record, but the ninth-ranked Wildcats came up short to No. 5 Baylor, 38-27, at McLane Stadium. Waters went 22-of-27 through the air for 300 yards and two touchdowns, including one to Lockett, who finished with 14 receptions for 158 yards. His fourth-quarter score was the 27th receiving touchdown of his career as he broke the previous school record held by his father, Kevin. Additionally, his 14 receptions were one shy of Kansas State’s single-game record. Tight end Zach Trujillo hauled in three passes for a career-high 88 yards, including a 36-yard touchdown that capped off a 14-point second quarter. Running backs Charles Jones and DeMarcus Robinson combined for 76 yards on 33 carries, including a one-yard run by the former that got the Wildcats on the board. Senior linebacker Jonathan Truman recorded yet another double-digit tackle game as he came away with 13. Randall Evans had six tackles and picked off Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty in the end zone to halt a potential Bear scoring drive in the first quarter. Petty led an offense that racked up 584 yards by throwing for 412 yards and one touchdown. Shock Linwood rushed for 91 yards and a score, while Johnny Jefferson rushed for two touchdowns. HOW IT HAPPENED | First Half • Baylor received the opening kickoff and marched 81 yards in eight plays on a drive that was capped by a Petty one-yard QB sneak to make the score 7-0. • K-State managed just one first down on its opening drive and was forced to punt to Baylor, which drove to the Wildcat 9-yard line before Evans picked off a pass in the end zone. • Kansas State got on the board on a one-yard rush by Jones out of the Wildcat formation which capped a 10-play drive. The Bears returned the favor with an 11-play drive of their own that was finished off by a two-yard run by Jefferson that made the score 21-7. • The Wildcats pulled back to within a score when Waters found Trujillo on a perfect 36-yard pitchand-catch late in the second quarter. • K-State left too much time on the clock, however, as Baylor went 48 yards in 44 seconds before Chris Callahan hit a 46-yarder as time expired to send the Bears into the break, up 24-14. HOW IT HAPPENED | Second Half • K-State opened the second half on fire by driving all the way to the BU 7 on the opening possession, but the Wildcats had to settle for a 24-yard field goal by Matthew McCrane. • Baylor made the Wildcats pay quickly as it was in the end zone two plays later following a 58-yard pass from Petty to Antwan Goodley to put Baylor on top 31-17. • The Wildcats traded another three for seven as McCrane booted a 47-yarder midway through the third quarter before Jefferson tallied his second score of the game to make it 38-20. • Lockett’s record-breaking touchdown came on an 8-yard pass with 12:41 left in the game as KState pulled to within 11, but the Wildcats did not get on the board again as a late interception in BU territory allowed Baylor to run out the clock.

SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- Quarterback Brett Hundley led No. 14 UCLA to a 31-6 halftime lead and the Bruins held off No. 11 Kansas State 40-35 on Friday night in the Alamo Bowl. Kansas State (9-4) scored 22 of the first 25 points in the second half, cutting it to 34-28 on quarterback Jake Waters’ 1-yard run with 4:54 left. Paul Perkins countered for UCLA (10-3) with a 67-yard run with 2:20 to go. Waters threw a 29-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Lockett with 1:21 left, but UCLA recovered the onside kick and ran out the clock. Perkins ran for 194 yards on 20 carries. Lockett had 13 catches for 164 yards for Kansas State. Waters was 31 of 48 for 338 yards, but was sacked seven times -- twice by Butkus Award winner Eric Kendricks -- and threw two interceptions and lost a fumble. Hundley ran for 96 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries and passed for 136 yards. UCLA coach Jim Mora has said Hundley is forgoing his senior season to enter the NFL draft. UCLA raced to a 17-0 lead in the first quarter, with Hundley scoring on runs of 10 and 28 yards. The Bruins outgained Kansas State 218-4 and had a 9-1 edge in first downs in the quarter. In the second quarter, Perkins had a 32-yard touchdown run and Hundley threw a 7-yard scoring pass to Dave Lucien. The Bruins sacked Waters five times in the half. The Wildcats opened the second half with a 17-play drive, capped by Waters’ 3-yard touchdown pass to Lockett and a successful 2-point conversion -- also from Waters to Lockett. After forcing a fumble by Perkins, K-State took over at UCLA’s 21 and scored on DeMarcus Robinson’s 2-yard run. Hundley had a 40-yard run on a third-and-11 play to set up Ka’imi Fairbairn’s 44-yard field goal that gave UCLA a 34-21 lead late in the third quarter.
