Kansas State Wildcats news fixates on the football team’s win in the Texas Bowl and on the basketball team winning their first Big 12 conference game of the season to move to 12-1. The Wildcats are rolling!
K-State made their fans pretty happy this week with two big wins for the school. The football team won in a 33-28 victory in the Advocare V100 Texas Bowl down in Houston against the Texas A&M Aggies.
The offense was clicking on all cylinders and after a bad first defensive possession, the defense buckled down and were able to slow down the Aggies enough to win the game. It was an impressive final game for the football team and they finished the season at 9-4.
The other major sport at Kansas State, the basketball team, was able to come away with a big victory too. KSU entered Big 12 conference play on Friday night and hosted the Texas Longhorns in their first crack at a Big 12 opponent.
The Wildcats won their first Big 12 game 65-62 over the Longhorns and showed that they just might be ready to compete with their conference foes. Of course, their next opponent will prove to be much tougher, as its their in-state rival the Kansas Jayhawks.
If K-State can keep up with KU, then they might just be for real this season. It’s still early on in the season though, so we’ll just have to see how things play out.

It’s been a fun season for both major teams at Kansas State University and hopefully the basketball team will continue to roll as conference play progresses.
The next match-up for the Wildcats will come on Tuesday against the Jayhawks. The game will be played at Allen Fieldhouse, which will obviously be a tough feat. Let’s just hope that K-State can put up a fight in that one.
