This game is the epitome of win-not_lose. As much as it will annoy Wildcat fans to lose tonight, everyone is pretty clearly aware a win isn't all that likely. More importantly, a loss will pretty much have zero impact on K-State's immediate future. A win, on the other hand... well, that would be just dandy. In fact, one could pose the argument that in the aggregate losing in Morgantown and beating KU in Manhattan is a better outcome than winning in Morgantown and losing to the Jayhawks.

Can Marcus Foster follow up on Saturday's heroics? Can the Wildcat defense solve KU's attack? Will we all be blotto by midnight? Let's find out.
