MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) -- The Kansas State Wildcats are back
home in Manhattan after their trip to the Fiesta Bowl in Arizona.
Players, coaches, administrators and family members landed at the Manhattan Regional Airport Friday afternoon.
Coach Bill Snyder was spotted on the tarmac as members of the team loaded up their gear and boarded buses to take them back to K-State's campus.
The Wildcats lost to Oregon Thursday night but officials thanked fans for all of their support during the team's successful season.
"I think our team feels good about their accomplishments this year. I know they wanted to win the ball game and they’re all ready to get started on next year. We had great fans there, some 40,000 fans so our team competed very well," said John Currie, the university's athletic director.
K-State finished the 2012 season with 11 wins and two loses.
