Fresh off of a Big 12 conference championship, the Kansas State Wildcats will face off with the Alabama Crimson Tide in the Allstate Sugar Bowl in New Orleans.
The Tide enter the game 10-2 on the season while the Wildcats enter 10-3 overall. Kansas State quarterback Will Howard says that Alabama brings a unique challenge to the table with their blend of size, speed, and scheme.
The Crimson Tide will have two major stars playing in the game, in 2021 Heisman trophy winner Bryce Young, and projected Top 10 overall pick in the NFL Draft Will Anderson. Kansas State Coach Chris Klieman says that although Alabama is at full strength, it doesn't change the gameplan or the way that the Big 12 champs are preparing for Saturday.
The Wildcats have shown success running the football all season, led by workhorse running back Deuce Vaughn. Vaughn says that in order to knock off one of college football's elite, the ground game will have to be an emphasis.
Pregame coverage of the Sugar Bowl begins at 9 a.m. on the Mighty 690, with kickoff following at 11 a.m.
