Kansas State will play for a berth in the 2009 Dr. Pepper Big 12 Championship game on Saturday as the Wildcats close out the regular season with a nationally-televised game at No. 25 Nebraska. The stakes will be high on Saturday as the winner of Saturday’s game at Memorial Stadium will represent the north division in Arlington and Cowboys Stadium on December 2.

The game, which kicks at 6:45 p.m., will be televised nationally by ESPN as Brad Nessler (play-by-play), Todd Blackledge (analyst) and Erin Andrews (sideline) 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 TBD.

K-State will look to bounce back from its first home loss of the season to Missouri last week as the Wildcats need a win on Saturday to earn a trip to the Big 12 Championship game and qualify for a bowl game.
The Wildcats have been one of the more productive running teams in the Big 12 Conference this season behind All-Big 12 candidate Daniel Thomas. Thomas, the Big 12’s leading rusher, already has surpassed the 1,000-yard rushing mark on the season and continues to climb the K-State record books. Quarterback Grant Gregory also continues to provide leadership in the huddle, while Brandon Banks has put together an All-America-caliber season with an NCAA-leading four kick returns for touchdowns.

The Wildcat defense has been much improved from a year ago and ranks in the top half of the Big 12 in both rushing defense (105.8 ypg) and total defense (346.5) while also ranking second in turnover margin (+8). Jeffrey Fitzgerald has been a force up front defensively with his 6.0 sacks and 8.5 tackles for loss, while Emmanuel Lamur leads the squad in tackles with 61. Tysyn Hartman continues to put up All-Big 12-like numbers as he has collected 53 tackles, six pass breakups and four interceptions on the season, while K-State has a total of six players with 40 or more tackles on the season.
