First real road test for Wildcats

This is going to be a heckuva game. Maybe.

Just one item of business for yesterday: the all-important Kansas State injury report from KSUEMAW!

Important stuff first!

Jon Morse does all the work so you don't have to. Here's the full Saturday college football schedule, and here's the How to Watch post for the Oklahoma State game.

Now on to the less important stuff...

Joe Hubener will make his first Big 12 road start today, and Bill Snyder is not worried:

Just be Joe and play your game...He is a bright, young guy. He seems to handle that well.

Speaking of Snyder, he is "ancient and ageless", because that is the way of the wizard (Berry Tramel, The Oklahoman).

Oklahoma State's quarterback situation is a two-headed monster, with both J.W. Walsh and possibly injured starter Mason Rudolph likely to take the field today (Kellis Robinett, Kansas City Star).

The Topeka Capital-Journal's Kevin Haskin, Ken Corbitt and Tim Bisel discuss the Oklahoma State game in their weekly CatZone podcast.

If the stars align and Kansas State wins its first game in Stillwater since 1999, College Gameday might choose Manhattan as its Week 6 destination. Maybe (Robinett, Wichita Eagle).

This is about as EMAW a story as ever. Paul Coffman, former Kansas State tight end, NFL veteran, and father of Carson, will be inducted into the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame. He's from a tiny town in central Kansas and walked on at Kansas State, but beat the odds and somehow ended up in the NFL. Some things about Kansas State never change (Robinett, Eagle).

And now for something different. Would you say Kansas has it worse now than Kansas State in the late 80s? Sam Mellinger, writing for the KC Star, asks the important question and concludes that Kansas is in a "deep, dark, tragicomedy of a hole."
