Collin Klein discusses Sports Illustrated cover

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein humbled by gracing the cover of this week's "Sports Illustrated."

The Kansas State Wildcats are in the midst of a magical season, ranking first overall in the BCS with a perfect 10-0 record. Quarterback Collin Klein has been the player leading the way, earning Heisman Trophy buzz in his senior season.

Now, Klein has received the honor of gracing the cover of this week's "Sports Illustrated." While he admitted he's aware of the notoriety that comes with being on the cover in the weekly press conference, Klein said that it didn't change his business-as-usual approach.

Wide receiver Chris Harper was honest when asked how significant the cover is for his quarterback.

"I thought that it was photoshopped. I have to get one of those. That is pretty big. He is the most humble guy you will ever meet. It is not going to get to his head."

This season, Klein has thrown for 2,020 yards, 12 touchdowns and three interceptions. He's also toted the most carries on the team, accounting for 748 yards and 19 scores on the ground.

With two games remaining on the schedule, the Wildcats still have work to do before contending for the national title. They will first square off with the Baylor Bears on the road this Saturday night.
