The Kansas State Wildcats suffered a brutal end to their perfect season last week. Now, they look to rebound on the road against the perfect Oklahoma State Cowboys. How does a team that just gave up 59 points hang with the Cowboys offense?
The Wildcats are a strong team. They showed this with a 7-0 start to the season. The team currently sits at 14th in the BCS rankings. On paper, Oklahoma State is a heavy favorite, but Kansas State has been down this road before. Only three times this year has Kansas State been favored (Eastern Kentucky, Kent State and Kansas).
K-State has outgunned explosive offenses and gotten key stops. On October 1st, they went toe-to-toe with Robert Griffin III and finished the game with a 36-35 victory while intercepting the star late in the game.
Kansas State can pull another trick out of its hat tonight. It can be done, but it will take a mistake-free game and several lucky breaks. Here is a rundown of the several things the Cats must execute in order to return to Manhattan with a victory.
