Kansas State Wildcats Football Details
The Kansas State University football team has won six conference titles in its history, most recently the Big 12 championship in 2012, when they went 11-2 and 8-1 in conference. They made it to the Fiesta Bowl that season, which was a major accomplishment for the program. The Wildcats are still being coached by the legendary Bill Snyder, who is in his 26th year as the head coach of this team. Heading into this season, Snyder was 202-105-1 with Kansas State, and he’ll keep doing great things with the Wildcats until the day he decides to hang up his windbreaker.
Kansas State might not be as explosive as other teams in the Big 12, but this team is well-coached and knows how to play the game. The Wildcats had one of the best defenses in the country in 2016, and things aren’t changing much now. They allowed just 21.8 points per game a year ago (t-20th in the country), and that is an impressive number considering the fact that they played against some high-scoring teams in conference. On the other side of the field, quarterback Jesse Ertz and wide receiver Byron Pringle are still around to electrify the fans in Bill Snyder Family Stadium. Pringle is one of the most talented players in the country at his position, and Ertz knows that his job is to throw the ball somewhere in his vicinity. Only good things can happen when this Kansas State team is getting Pringle the touches he deserves.
