Don't expect Kansas State to succumb to the pressure of being the No. 1 ranked team in the BCS standings over the final two weeks of the season, because this is a focused group of players who understand they have a lot more work to do.

The only opponents that stand in the Wildcats' road to the BCS national championship game are Baylor and No. 15 Texas, and it's highly unlikely that either the Bears or Longhorns will pull off an upset.

Bill Snyder's team isn't getting the credit they deserve from fans and media members throughout the nation.

Everyone acknowledges that the Wildcats' offense is phenomenal thanks to quarterback Collin Klein, who is arguably the leading candidate for the Heisman Trophy heading into Week 12.

However, the team's defense is also very good, and when K-State wins the national title, people will realize that the Wildcats weren't just a high-scoring team this season.

The Big 12 conference is full off high-powered offenses that would give any defense in the nation a real challenge.

Kansas State has already played four teams ranked 20th or better in points scored per game, and if the Wildcats finish their season undefeated, they will have beaten six teams in the top 20 in scoring.

Head coach Bill Snyder has done a masterful job improving his defense this year, and this unit has been well-tested all season.

A possible BCS title game matchup with the Oregon Ducks won't intimidate the Wildcats because they know what it's like to play high-scoring offenses and have success.

The Wildcats will beat a Baylor team on Saturday that scores a lot of points (seventh-best scoring offense), but cannot stop anyone on defense (118th in points against).

The final game of the season will be challenging, but Texas also doesn't have a great defense and lost to Oklahoma and West Virginia earlier in the year—two teams Kansas State has already beaten.

The top three teams in the BCS standings heading into the weekend are Kansas State, Oregon and Notre Dame, respectively, and the Wildcats have the easiest remaining schedule.

Kansas State will dominate Baylor and Texas in its final two games and clinch a berth in the BCS title game for the first time in school history.
