AMES, Iowa (AP) - The upcoming matchup between Kansas State and West Virginia was supposed to break up the tie between the Wildcats and Mountaineers for first in the Big 12.
There's no doubt who leads the league now.
No. 4 Kansas State (6-0, 3-0) emerged from Saturday's hard-fought 27-21 win over Iowa State (4-2, 1-2) as the Big 12's only unbeaten team, both overall and in the conference.
Though the Wildcats would quickly lose their grip on the league lead with a loss at No. 17 West Virginia - which is no doubt smarting after a 49-14 shellacking by Texas Tech on Saturday - they woke up on Sunday as the unquestioned class of the conference.
