College Football Rankings: Kansas State To Highest Spot In Nearly 10 Years

The Kansas State Wildcats have risen to their highest point in college football rankings in years, after their 24-19 upset win over Oklahoma on Saturday. The Wildcats check in at No. 7 on this week's Associated Press Top 25, their highest ranking since 2003.

The ranking comes as Kansas State has started its 2012 campaign with a 4-0 record. A blowout win over Miami and Saturday's upset of top-10 Oklahoma have moved the Wildcats up the rankings from their 22nd-ranked starting point.

Bill Snyder's reclamation project in Manhattan mirrors his success in his previous stint at Kansas State. His 2003 Wildcats rose as high as No. 6 that season, and included a demolishing of No. 1 ranked Oklahoma in the Big 12 championship game.

In the fourth year of his second stint, Snyder has the Wildcats climbing back into not just relevance, but close to supremacy. After gritty quarterback Collin Klein led Kansas State to a 10-3 record last season, the coach-quarterback duo have knocked off the favorite Sooners and are starting on would could be a special season.
