MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) _ Paul Rhoads is painfully aware that he hasn't knocked off Kansas State since becoming coach at Iowa State five years ago. The point is driven home by how close he's come to doing it.

He lost by one point his first year. Lost by a touchdown the next two. And last year, his scrappy Cyclones took the then-No. 6 Wildcats down to the wire in a 27-21 defeat.

The Cyclones (1-6, 0-4 Big 12) have had their share of close losses this season, too. They hope to finally turn around their fortunes when they head to Manhattan, Kan., on Saturday to face the Wildcats (3-4, 1-3).

Both teams view the game as a must-win for bowl eligibility.
