The Kansas State football team hasn’t played in front of a bowl representative this season, but that will soon change.
With the Wildcats at 4-4 after back-to-back blowout victories, they look more like a team that will qualify for the postseason than a team that might reach bowl eligibility.
It’s still early, of course. With four games remaining they could finish anywhere from 8-4 to 4-8. They could play in a nice postseason game. They might not make the postseason at all.
