Oooh, 11-12-13! You'll have to wait another year and 31 days for that to happen again, but it's probably not happening again in your lifetime after that.

Yesterday's Slate was all about winning games on Saturday. Today's theme: winning awards on Monday.

Football:

Not only was he named Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week for the second straight time, but Ryan Mueller now finds himself on the Ted Hendricks Award (best defensive end) watch list.

Hey... he's still a junior. Oh, god, we've got someone to hype next year. And I have the feeling Kellis Robinett's totally on that bandwagon, because Mueller gets a whole paragraph in Robinett's post-BroTech notebook. Also of note: the turnaround since September keys heavily on the O-line.

Early previews of Saturday's contest from Kellis Robinett and Ken Corbitt. Also, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort-Worth Star-Telegram talks about erstwhile TCU starter Trevone Boykin's value to the team even if he isn't the QB anymore.

The Deathstar has officially upgraded K-State to the #5 hole; all their bowl projectionists now have the Cats headed to San Diego.

Saturday is Fan Appreciation Day at the Bill.

Basketball:

The Collegian profiles Deb Patterson. Meanwhile, K-State racked its second player of the week nod as Leti Romero was selected as Big 12 women's basketball freshman of the week.

Volleyball:

Oh, that's not all: Taylor Johnson is the Big 12 volleyball defensive player of the week.

Baseball:

Des Moines Area CC catcher Steve Serratore is signing his K-State letter of intent tomorrow. Last year as a freshman, he hit .338 with five homers.

The week ahead:

MBB hosts Oral Roberts tomorrow, then Long Beach State visits on Sunday. In between, there's three contests on Saturday: TCU visits, of course, while volleyball travels to Lawrence and WBB heads to El Paso to face UTEP.
