MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas State was picked to finish near the bottom of the Big 12 last year, and didn't do anything to change expectations with a last-gasp win over Eastern Kentucky to open the season.

By the end of it, the Wildcats were playing in the Cotton Bowl.

Collin Klein, the gritty run-first quarterback, is back for Kansas State and expectations are high for a team that won 10 games last season.

The season opener is Sept. 1 at home against Missouri State.
