A top the top five Wildcats leads the league standings with a 7-0 overall record and a perfect 4-0 record. However, a loss Saturday could pull Kansas State back to the top of the pack with Tech, Oklahoma and potentially Oklahoma State if the Cowboys can defeat TCU on Saturday.

Beating Kansas State is central to any conference championship dream.
