2010 Record: 7-6
Names to Know: QB Collin Klein, RB Bryce Brown
BCS Contender on Alert: Oklahoma (Oct. 29)
The Little Apple has been one of the toughest places to win in the Big 12, ever since Bill Snyder transformed them from doormat to contender back in the 1990's. Snyder's return to the sidelines two years ago helped breathe life back into a program that had lost a lot of the momentum it had at the earlier part of the decade.
This year, dynamic running quarterback Collin Klein returns and is joined by former mega-recruit and Tennessee transfer, running back Bryce Brown. This duo has a chance to post numbers comparable to the ones Eli Roberson and Darren Sproles ran up in the Wildcats' Big 12 title season of 2003.
The biggest home game of the year falls the last weekend of October against Oklahoma. The Sooners will more than likely enter the season ranked somewhere in the top five, and if they live up to expectations, they could enter the Kansas State game undefeated.
Will Snyder be able to turn back the clock and ride the Klein-Brown combo to another big upset of the Sooners?
