With the spring weather in the air, college football enthusiasts are already looking forward to August, when the college football season will kick off. Expectations for certain programs are fairly high, and this year, Kansas State is one of those programs. The Orlando Sentinel's college football blog has posted very preliminary bowl projections for the 2012-13 season, and much to the delight of Kansas State fans, the Wildcats are projected to take on the Alabama Crimson Tide in the Sugar Bowl.
Oklahoma is ticketed for the Fiesta Bowl, which means that the Sooners, not the Wildcats, are projected to win the Big 12. Kansas State, therefore, would be capturing one of the at-large BCS bids.
Last year, Kansas State could have easily been seen as a BCS snub, but the Wildcats did earn a Cotton Bowl berth. Unfortunately, Arkansas defeated Kansas State 29-16 in the Cotton Bowl, squashing any BCS-snub cries from K-State fans.
Still, there's clearly plenty to look forward to this year if you're a Kansas State fan.
