K-State defeated Long Beach State, 77-60, on Christmas to take home the trophy in the Diamond Head Classic. Getting a tournament trophy has been on Frank Martin's wish list for a while now, and that goal has been accomplished.
With the win K-State jumped into the top 25 in the coaches poll.
Drew Brees broke Dan Marino's record for most passing yards in a season last night, and Darren Sproles caught the record-breaking pass.
Big 12 Football
Missouri's mascot, Truman the Tiger, broke the Independence Bowl trophy. Missouri then went out and dispatched North Carolina, 41-24, in its final game as a Big 12 school. Tell me again why the ACC deserved two BCS bowl appearances?
No Big 12 bowl games today, but after that the week belongs to the conference. Tomorrow night Texas takes on Cal in the Holiday Bowl in San Diego. Baylor plays Washington in the Alamo Bowl on Thursday. Iowa State gets a taste of the big city (and probably very poor turf conditions) in the Pinstripe Bowl against Rutgers, and Bob Stoops takes on his alma mater when Oklahoma meets Iowa in the Insight Bowl, both on Friday. Texas A&M takes on Northwestern in the Texas Bowl on Saturday. Strange things always happen during bowl season, but it would be a big disappointment if the Big 12 had more than one loss through that stretch of games.
