MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Oklahoma has been a statement game for every team in the Big 12 for decades, and that should be no different for Kansas State, which is trying to rebuild under new coach Chris Klieman.

Only he doesn’t view it that way.

“I learned a long time ago, be careful about overemphasizing one team than another,” Klieman said ahead of their Saturday showdown, “because if you do that — ‘Man, this is our Super Bowl. We have to get it done’ — then what do you do the next week? What do you do the following week? It’s no different than if we were playing Nicholls State. That’s the next game on the schedule.”
