Why is today's Slate so late?
Well, I blame Comcast.

Jon Morse and Luke Thompson dug for gold to bring us some Wednesday FEPO action, in which Jon decides to take the safe money and Luke hates on Minnesota for no apparent reason.

Football

Kansas State's recent success on the gridiron is due at least in part to the longevity and stability of Bill Snyder's staff (Ken Corbitt, Topeka Capital-Journal). Mo Latimore has been with the Wildcats since way before Snyder got here, and Sean Snyder has worked on his father's staff for 21 years, to name just two examples. All in all, the Kansas State football staff has a collective 243 years of college and professional coaching experience.

Speaking of experiences, Kevin Haskin of the Capital-Journal muses on the last Farmageddon game played at Arrowhead, a 27-20 win for Kansas State.

Kansas State will play Louisiana Tech this Saturday, and for the Bulldogs' Jens Danielsen, it will be a homecoming of sorts (Patrick Walsh, SportsNOLA).

The K-State Collegian has updated the Big 12 power rankings, and on the strength of (yet another) win over an SEC team, Oklahoma is sitting pretty at the top (Andrew Hammond, Collegian). But Football.com's Brian Harper disagrees and puts TCU at the top. He's also underwhelmed by Kansas State. Just sayin'.

In light of recent events, I'm not sure if this is justice or irony, but Saturday is Sudler Day at Bill Snyder Family Stadium, and the K-State Marching Band will be be honored with the Sudler Trophy for 2015, in recognition of being the best band in the land, and for their adherence to the K-State Way.

Those of you who attend games at BSFS have no excuse to not live-tweet the games anymore. Kansas State has partnered with Boingo Wireless to bring better wireless access to the stadium.

Volleyball

The volleyball will take its six-game winning streak to Omaha this weekend for the Creighton Classic, the final non-conference event for 2015. They'll be part of an exceptionally strong field that includes two one-loss teams in Wisconsin and Arkansas, and the host team, Creighton.
