MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - — Kansas State returns nine starters on offense and seven on defense from a year ago, when the Wildcats surprised just about everyone by winning 10 games and reaching the Cotton Bowl.
That doesn't mean there aren't jobs on the line heading into next season.
The offensive line has some openings and there are a few positions that must be sorted out on defense. Some of that has happened during practice, and coach Bill Snyder will be able to take another step when the Wildcats play their annual spring game on Saturday.
Snyder said that he's encouraged by some of the progress individual players have made.
The spring game kicks off at 1 p.m. on Saturday.
