‘That’s not cold’

The high temperature for Saturday’s Kansas State-Oklahoma football game is expected to be 34 degrees, which will make for a cold 11 a.m. kickoff.
But K-State coach Bill Snyder doesn’t think the chilly conditions will impact the game. He asks his players to practice outside when it is cold. They’ll be ready.
“That’s not cold,” Snyder said Tuesday. “This is Kansas, after all. Our guys are accustomed to that.”
• Kansas State junior defensive end Ryan Mueller, a St. Thomas Aquinas graduate, is one of 10 semifinalists for the Bulsworth Trophy, which is awarded to the nation’s top player who started as a walk-on.
• Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops used three quarterbacks against Iowa State, and there is no telling who will start against K-State.
Most think Trevor Knight, who rushed for 123 yards and a touchdown against the Cyclones, will get the nod, because Blake Bell is dealing with an injury. But Bell has started the last eight games and Kendal Thompson played well against Iowa State.
Stoops has said he won’t decide until game time.
“The good thing is that they can only get one quarterback on the field at any given time,” Snyder said.
