MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - It may seem odd that an undefeated team, ranked third in the country and barreling toward the BCS title game, would consider itself an underdog.
Old habits die hard at Kansas State.
Despite its recent success, including wins over West Virginia and Texas Tech the past two weeks, Kansas State still has much to prove.
Voters in the coaches' and Harris polls have the Wildcats slotted behind unbeaten Oregon, and Notre Dame is giving chase, and that poses a problem with the two polls making up a big chunk of the BCS rankings that determine who plays for the national championship.
So while Kansas State (8-0, 5-0) is undefeated heading into Saturday's game against Oklahoma State, players are more than happy to keep their underdog status.
