MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas State couldn't pick a better place to convalesce than Manhattan, Kan.
The home of the seventh-ranked Wildcats is tucked away in the Flint Hills, far enough away from the noise and distractions that come with major college football, and should provide a good place for them to recover from last week's monumental disappointment at Baylor.
The Wildcats were ranked No. 1 in the BCS standings when they were trounced 52-24 by the Bears. They could still sneak into the national title game, but it's a longshot now. The reality is they're likely playing for a Big 12 title _ and nothing more _ next Saturday against Texas.
The Wildcats (10-1, 7-1) are off this week. They'll return Sunday to begin prepping for the Longhorns.
