The Kansas State Wildcats finished last season at 10-3 and ranked No. 8 in the final BCS standings after a season ending Cotton Bowl loss to the Arkansas Razorbacks. Somehow that was good enough to earn them a 91 overall team rating on the soon-to-be-released NCAA Football '13, the same total as schools like Iowa and Tulsa. Yep. Tulsa.
Nothing against Tulsa, but Kansas State spent all of last season hoping that the performance of Collin Klein and company would finally earn some national respect rather than the typical head-scratching and belief that head coach Bill Snyder holds all of the magic. Even in video game form, K-State could rival Rodney Dangerfield for a lack of respect. They have a "3" for prestige.
As for other local schools, they have reason to celebrate. Missouri enters its first season of SEC play with an 89 overall rating for the team and should be a beast on offense with James Franklin, Henry Josey and the rest. Mizzou starts with a 4 for prestige rating, and it should be fun to play with them in a new conference.
Kansas has a 79, which is actually respectable given that EA might have bought a bit of the Charlie Weis hype when making out the scores.
