Kansas State, fresh off a dominating win over Texas A&M, continues its current homestand Saturday at 11:30 a.m. with a Big 12 North showdown against the Colorado Buffaloes. The matchup with Colorado will cap Homecoming weekend in Manhattan as alumni from across the country descend on Manhattan for the weekend.

The game will be televised live for the second consecutive week by Fox College Sports as Dan McLaughlin, Yogi Roth and Samantha Steele will have the call. A live audio broadcast is also available across the K-State Sports Network, online at www.k-statesports.com and on SIRIUS satellite radio channel 146. Wyatt Thompson will call the action with Stan Weber serving as the color analyst and Matt Walters providing sideline updates.

K-State and Colorado, both coming off big conference wins last weekend, will be meeting for the 65th time overall on Saturday as the Buffaloes hold a 44-19-1 advantage in the all-time series. Under head coach Bill Snyder, the Wildcats are 5-11-1 against the Buffaloes and 7-6 during the Big 12 era.

The Wildcats continue to get solid play at the running back position as Daniel Thomas is coming off a 91-yard, four-touchdown performance against the Aggies, all of which came in the first half. The league’s third-leading rusher, Thomas has found the endzone eight times this season and currently leads the Big 12 in rushing touchdowns in league games with four. Quarterback Grant Gregory is coming off a very efficient game against the Aggies in which he was 10-of-13 for 147 yards and a touchdown with 33 yards on the ground as well.

The Wildcat defense was the story of last week’s win over Texas A&M as the unit shut down one of the league’s top offenses. K-State, with six sacks last week, doubles its season total to 12 and picked off Aggie quarterback Jerrod Johnson three times after he had set a new Big 12 record for consecutive pass attempts without throwing an interception. Jeffrey Fitzgerald, John Houlik and Joshua Moore led the defense last weekend as Fitzgerald had 2.5 sacks, forced a fumble and recovered another, Houlik had 3.5 tackles for loss and a breakup and Moore had three breakups, an interception and 1.5 TFL’s.
