DALLAS, Tex. (WIBW) - One of the most accomplished players in Kansas State football history talked with 13′s Vince Lovergine ahead of Saturday’s Big 12 championship showdown between K-State and TCU.

As part of the College GameDay coverage, former K-State star and retired NFL running back Darren Sproles will offer insights previewing the game. Nineteen years ago, Sproles shined in a 35-7 win over No. 1 Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship game. In that conference championship game at Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium, Sproles rushed for 235 yards on 22 attempts. K-State steamrolled the heavily favored Sooners, outscoring Oklahoma 35-0 after trailing 7-0 through the first quarter.

Sproles said he has a bet with fellow running back and former TCU standout LaDainian Tomlinson where the loser will have to do pushups.

As for a prediction, Sproles thinks the Wildcats will beat TCU 38-32 and leave Dallas as Big 12 champions.
