MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — One week after piling up a school-record 35 fourth-quarter points, No. 21 Kansas State is preparing for a rematch of the game where it first earned a reputation for winning late.

Miami is coming to town on Saturday.

Wildcats coach Bill Snyder refuses to give the Hurricanes credit for being a turning point last season, but linebacker Arthur Brown is much more convinced that a dramatic goal-line stand — and an assist from a video review — changed the entire mentality of the team.

Kansas State wound up winning that game 28-24 in Miami and parlayed the mental toughness that it earned on the road into a 10-win season and a trip to the Cotton Bowl.
