Previously on Bring on the Cats: Week 2 of K-State's season is here and Jon has your story stream to keep up with all the reports and previews of the upcoming game against Iowa State.

Jon also has the Iowa State crowdsourcing poll and reports that 97% of us predicted the correct outcome for the Stephen F. Austin game. Yay us!

Curtis Kitchen also debuts the weekly Bring on the Cats power rankings.

The Deathstar has a new rankings tool, FPI, better know as the Football Power Index which is similar to RPI in basketball. While I'm not exactly sure how they derive the FPI, K-State did move up three spots.

Wendell Barnhouse has your conference recap from the Big 12. Robinett also checks in with his weekly Big 12 report.

Ken Corbitt from the Journal with a report on K-State's early conference opener against Iowa State. Also from the Journal, Kevin Haskin points out that the Wildcats have an embarrassment of riches at the wide-receiver spot.

Eric Horne of The Oklahoman has your Big 12 injury round-up. Meanwhile, Berry Tramel has his week two Big 12 power rankings

Tommy Birch of the Des Moines Register has an early preview of the Iowa State vs. K-State match-up, and notes the last time the Cyclones beat the Wildcats was 2007 (also referred to as the Dark Ages by K-State fans).

Associated Press reports, among others, that ISU's Quenton Bundrage is out for the season with an ACL tear in his right knee. This is a huge blow for an Iowa State squad that has struggled in past seasons with moving the ball.

Eleven former Wildcats landed on NFL rosters, led by 12 year vet Terence Newman.

Also, the B1G made a video of their schools to the opening credits of Game of Thrones. It's awesome and you should go check it out.

Tanner Witt won the Jason Simontacci Award, which is given to the top rookie in the Frontier League. Witt saw time at every position except first base and catcher for the Aviators. He lead the team in hits with 107, and had a .301 batting average. Congratulations to Tanner and hopefully this award is the first of many.

In golf news, Robert Streb finished tied for 9th at the Deutsche Bank Championship at -9. However, he missed out on advancing in the FedEx cup challenge by one spot (only the Top 70 advanced and Streb finished at 71).
