Kansas head coach Lance Leipold on playing K-State…

“A point of emphasis would be cleaning up some things. Coach Klieman and his staff have done an outstanding job and they have an excellent football team with a lot to play for. They’ve earned that right and they have a lot of weapons and one of the best defenses in the country. It’s going to be a big task to go in there.”

Kansas State head coach Chris Klieman on what Kansas has done well this year…

I think the biggest thing is believing. I don’t know their roster, but they’re playing hard and they’re believing. And they do have talented players without question but they’re playing inspired, them getting to a bowl game I know is huge for the program, and I know that this is kind of the potential cherry on top for them with this game, because they ‘re already bowl eligible, so really don’t have anything to lose. And I know this, that they’re playing hard for each other and they’re playing hard for their coaching staff and it’s gonna be a big challenge.”
