BCS Bowl Projections: Kansas State Could Play Michigan Wolverines In Fiesta Bowl

Samuel Chi has revealed his latest BCS Projected Rankings at SB Nation and the results are very good for a Kansas State team that won its 10th game yesterday against the Iowa State Cyclones. The team clinched second place in a tough Big 12 this season, showing they have more talent and determination than anyone saw in the preseason. It’s also due to the masterful coaching job of Bill Snyder.

That makes K-State one of the biggest winners on Saturday. Chi writes, “There’s nothing all that spectacular or attractive about the Wildcats, but they did finish 10-2, second in the Big 12 Conference. And they travel well. With the Fiesta Bowl having the opportunity to decide on the last at-large entry, it will ultimately take K-State and its Big 12 affiliation over Boise State, which has already played in two Fiesta Bowls in the last five years.”

Currently they sit in the No. 8 position in Chi’s rankings. Here’s his complete Top 20:

1. LSU
2. Oklahoma State
3. Alabama
4. Stanford
5. Oregon
6. Boise State
7. Arkansas
8. Kansas State
9. South Carolina
10. Wisconsin
11. Baylor
12. Virginia Tech
13. Michigan
14. Houston
15. Oklahoma
16. Michigan State
17. Clemson
18. TCU
19. Georgia
20. Nebraska
