FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Kansas State is so close to getting to play for its first national title. With two more wins, the Wildcats almost certainly will be headed to the BCS championship game.
The Wildcats (10-0) are up a spot to No. 2 in the new AP poll Sunday.
With its victory at TCU (6-4) and Alabama's loss, K-State is also set to move up a spot in the new BCS standings later Sunday. That would make them No. 1 in that.
Kansas State has games left against Baylor and No. 18 Texas.
The last time the Wildcats were this close to a national title was 1998. They were 11-0 before losing to Texas A&M in the Big 12 championship game. The Aggies, now in the SEC, upset Alabama on Saturday.
