Goal No. 10 of Bill Snyder’s 16 Goals for Success is Never Give Up. Last week in Lubbock, Texas, Snyder’s 2017 Kansas State football team put that principle on full display by rallying from 11 points down in the fourth quarter to force overtime and then win, 42-35, over Texas Tech.

Still trailing by eight with less than four minutes to play, Tech missed a 31-yard field goal and gave K-State the ball at its own 20 with 3:40 remaining. With Skylar Thompson at quarterback, K-State’s offense covered the 80 yards in five plays and then Thompson connected with Dalton Schoen on a must-make two-point conversion to tie the game.

The Powercat Pregame Podcast, featuring GoPowercat publisher Tim Fitzgerald, football analyst Marcus Watts and GPC's D. Scott Fritchen and Riley Gates, takes a look at Kansas State's 2:30 p.m. game Saturday versus West Virginia on Saturday at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. And, as always, the podcast is sponsored by Fridge Wholesale Liquor.

By scoring 18 unanswered points to close the game in Lubbock, K-State redirected its season from needing a pair of notable upsets to get to a bowl, to coming home Saturday to take on West Virginia with a chance to earn a bowl spot with two games to play in the season. Winning one of these final three games is plenty to ask. Two was a bit overwhelming. The Wildcats will play a trio of Top 25 teams to close the season with West Virginia, Oklahoma State and Iowa State standing in their path.

It all starts with West Virginia at home Saturday. The Wildcats are 5-4 overall and 3-3 in the Big 12, while the Mountaineers come to town at 6-3 and 4-2, and very much still alive in the race for one of the two spots in the Big 12 championship game.

Lubbock, Texas, sits about 600 miles southwest of Manhattan, Kansas, but if at the start of the season you were told that the Kansas State Wildcats would need to win at Texas Tech in Week Nine to keep their record above the .500 mark, you would have thought that was a million miles away from reality.

Well, welcome to K-State’s new reality. The Wildcats were just good enough last Saturday to win at Kansas, 30-20, and that victory moved the Cats to 4-4 on the season and 2-3 in the Big 12 with just four regular season games to go. It wasn’t supposed to be this way for Bill Snyder’s 2017 Wildcats, but here they are, heading to Texas Tech for what should be a competitive matchup with another 4-4 team. In reality, what Tech does well matched up against what K-State does poorly appears to be a recipe for disaster for the Wildcats.

The Powercat Pregame Podcast, featuring GoPowercat publisher Tim Fitzgerald, football analyst Marcus Watts and GPC's D. Scott Fritchen and Riley Gates, takes a look at Kansas State's 11 a.m. game Saturday at Texas Tech. And, as always, the podcast is sponsored by Fridge Wholesale Liquor.

Needless to say, Kansas State coach Bill Snyder has dominated in-state rival Kansas. After losing three of his first four season to KU, Snyder went to Lawrence on Saturday with 20 wins in his last 21 games versus the Jayhawks. And almost none of those games have been competitive. Once Snyder’s program got rolling, his Cats have completely owned KU.

So, when the Wildcats played Kansas on Saturday, it didn’t matter much that the Cats were 3-4. After all, KU was 1-6 and had been shut out in its last two games. Oh, and Snyder is still the coach at K-State. Surely a blowout was in the making. Well, it didn’t work out exactly as expected.

This week’s Powercat Game-Wrap Podcast covers K-State 30-20 victory over Kansas at KU’s Memorial Stadium. No, this wasn’t a blowout. It wasn’t even comfortable for the Wildcats, who didn’t put the game away until there were only 81 seconds on the clock. And, at the end of the game, the victory didn’t feel particularly satisfying for the fans.

Kansas State played better but still came up short in a 42-35 loss to No. 9 Oklahoma on Saturday. After leading 21-10 at halftime, K-State grew conservative and OU with quarterback Baker Mayfield stirred to life, sealing the victory in the game's final seconds. GoPowercat.com publisher Tim Fitzgerald recaps the loss with the Powercat Game-Wrap Podcast.
