MANHATTAN, Kan. - Following its 59-21 win over Kansas on Saturday, Kansas State moved up in both national polls and found itself at No. 8 in the latest BCS Standings released Sunday night on ESPN.

The Wildcats (7-0, 4-0) checked in at No. 10 in this week's AP poll and No. 12 in the USA Today Coaches poll. K-State has now made appearances in the rankings for four consecutive weeks for the first time since 2003, while it has reached the Top 10 for the first time since 2003.

The No. 8 BCS ranking is also the highest for a Wildcat team since being ranked No. 8 back in December of the 2002 season.

The Wildcats, one of only eight remaining undefeated teams in the country, host No. 9 Oklahoma on Saturday for homecoming. The game is near another sellout as a limited number of GA tickets in Section 28 can be purchased only at the Bramlage Coliseum ticket office. A few scattered singles also remain available and can be purchased online at www.k-statesports.com and at the Athletics Ticket Office in Bramlage Coliseum.

Kickoff on Saturday is set for 2:30 p.m. and the game will be televised nationally on ESPN.
