Big 12's Top Nonconference Football Games Includes Kansas State Vs. Miami

As ESPN's David Ubben looks ahead at the Big 12 football schedule in 2012, he recently made a list of the best five nonconference games to look forward to. Kansas State is playing one of those against the Miami Hurricanes, another hard foe on a schedule that will make things difficult for Bill Snyder to repeat his success of 2011.

Ubben writes, "These two played down to the wire in the Miami mud last season. Collin Klein was bleeding all over everybody (literally) and K-State's dream season got its first big boost. As double-digit underdogs, a last-second goal-line stand gave the Wildcats an upset (?) win. Miami went on to win six games. K-State won 10. They say the sequel's always a disappointment, but sign me up for this one."

No one will be taken by surprise the second time around by the Wildcats in 2012. Snyder's team is better than anyone realized, and it will be interesting to see how everyone responds this season.
