PHOENIX, Ariz. - All have arrived in sunny, but coolish Phoenix as the Wildcat football team touched down in time for a two-hour practice on Friday at Scottsdale Community College, while the rest of the travel party arrived around 4:45.

The rigors of bowl-week begin Saturday with a 7 a.m. wakeup call for those attending the FCA breakfast, which will be followed by a press conference at 9:30.

K-State will hold another practice from 12:30 until 2:30, followed by a session in the weight room at Scottsdale CC. Saturday, the team will attend the Buffalo Wildwings Bowl as TCU takes on Michigan State. 

 The theme of the week goes back to coach Bill Snyder's '16 Goals For Success': commitment, unselfishness and self discipline. That, and to go 1-0 while in Phoenix at the Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 3 against the Oregon Ducks.
