Kansas State Wildcats
Two teams sit firmly atop the Big 12 as the 2015 season approaches. Here are five Big 12 Conference games that you should make a point to watch.
TCU started the season with 13 consecutive non-conference wins. Now, the Horned Frogs finally have their first winning streak in the Big 12, with a victory over Kansas State.
Devaugntah Williams and Toddrick Gotcher scored 22 and 15 points, respectively, to lead the Red Raiders to a 64-47 win against Kansas State on Wednesday night.
Kindred Wesemann made eight 3-pointers for a career-high 25 points and Kansas State beat No. 20 Texas 66-57 on Wednesday.
Kansas State coach Bruce Weber called a 58-51 victory over Texas Tech on Wednesday night a “maturity game,” the kind of performance that proves just how far a team has come.
Liz Donohoe had 15 points and a season-high 10 rebounds and all five starters scored in double figures as No. 21 Oklahoma State women beat Kansas State 69-47 on Wednesday night.
Marcus Foster carried his momentum right into Wednesday night’s game against TCU, scoring 23 points off the bench and sending Kansas State to a 58-53 victory.
Nina Davis scored 24 points and Wallace added 17 to help Baylor rout Kansas State 74-44 on Tuesday night for the Lady Bears 19th straight win in the series.
Baylor is in the same position as a year ago, with its home finale being a de facto Big 12 championship game. The defending champion Bears have even more at stake this time.
Just imagine what K-State fans will call Gary Patterson if his Horned Frogs win at home Saturday night against the conference-leading Wildcats.
TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin finished the last game by encouraging the kicker before the game-winning field goal and apologizing to teammates in the locker room for his subpar performance.
The game matching Horned Frogs coach Gary Patterson against his alma mater will have huge implications in the Big 12 race, as well as in the College Football Playoff rankings.
