While the Big 12 has become one of the most pass-happy conferences in the country, under Bill Snyder, Kansas State has gone the opposite way -- emphasizing size up front and winning the games in the trenches.

The Wildcats style is epitomized by their battering ram QB Collin Klein, but they also have a shifty RB in junior John Hubert capable of taking advantage of defenses used to Klein's punishing running style.

After a strong sophomore season where Hubert, a native of Waco, Texas, rushed for 970 yards and 3 TD's on 200 carries, he has been named to the Doak Walker Award Watch List for the 2012 season.
