The big news from yesterday was the Big 12 announcing its annual post-season football awards, highlighted (for us) by Morgan Burns earning the Special Teams Player of the Year Award, the third straight year for a Wildcat to win the award.

Prior to last night's basketball game, AMS brought us a statistical look at how our Wildcat Men's team is performing so far this year. Eric Rubottom wrote up the game preview for the tilt against Coppin State, and JT VanGilder took a stab at the post-game analysis of the 83-58 victory.

No new K-State football-specific news, but the big news for the Big 12 is that Dana Holgorsen is apparently safe for at least one more year (McMurphy, ESPN). Brandon Chatmon comes up with the 10 games that defined the Big 12 this season, and K-State shows up twice in the list for the loss to TCU and the win over Iowa State.

Well, the Wildcats took care of business Wednesday night to push their record to 7-1 this season. Your official BOTC recap is above, but here's a smattering of recaps from around the K-State sphere: K-State Sports Official Recap; Eagle/Star; Capital-Journal; 1350KMAN. The Wildcats next action is Saturday afternoon in College Station against the 7-2 Texas A&M Aggies.

Prior to last night's victory, Joel Jellison at the Mercury gave us a look into the early K-State career of guard Carlbe Ervin, who is still working hard to catch up after preseason knee surgery kept him out of early practices.

This is just too good not to share.
