If No. 20 Kansas State is going to pursue a spot in the Big 12 Championship game, the Wildcats will have to avoid pitfalls that have obstructed them.
The next one of those will be presented Saturday night when the Wildcats travel to Ames, Iowa, for a matchup with Iowa State.
The Wildcats (4-1, 2-0 Big 12) have lost two straight games to the Cyclones (3-2, 0-2) and have fallen in their last two trips to Ames. Their loss in 2018 broke a 10-game winning streak vs. Iowa State. The Wildcats are within three games of evening the all-time series, which Iowa State leads 52-49-4.
