Hodge-podge group of players propels No. 4 K-State
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — The star quarterback used to be a wide receiver, and the top wide receiver used to be a quarterback.
There are junior college players from the most out-of-the-way places imaginable, and Division I transfers trying to find a fresh start. Small-town high school stars from the Heartland, and a motley collection of talent overlooked by college football's marquee programs.
This is No. 4 Kansas State, arguably the most diverse team in the country.
One of the best, too.
The Wildcats are 7-0, 4-0 in the Big 12, and barreling toward a spot in the BCS title game. Their next test comes Saturday against No. 15 Texas Tech.
