Series: Texas A&M leads the series against Kansas State 6-4-0. The last time the Aggies faced the Wildcats was in 2001 in Manhattan, KS when A&M beat KSU 31-24.

KSU Head Coach Bill Snyder on Texas A&M: "I've had a chance the last three days to spend some time watching Texas A&M and I'm tremendously impressed. I think they have made a wealth of improvement over where they were a year ago. I think (Reggie) McNeal is really playing lights out. He's such a major threat running the football and he's throwing the ball very well. The statistics indicate that and you watch it on tape and see that he's very accurate. He's reminiscent of some of the quarterback types that we've had at K-State, and they have that kind of an offense. It really is a well-balanced and very dangerous offense."

KSU C MIKE JOHNSON on playing at Kyle Field: "It's going to be real important. We will definitely get to practice for it here at the stadium when the coaches turn on the speakers and you can't even talk to the person next to you. They have a very hostile environment. I think they hold the record for being the loudest outdoor stadium with 134 decibels or something like that. It will definitely test our ability to play with crowd noise."

KSU Note: Kansas State is coming off of a 40-20 victory over Louisiana-Lafayette. The win over the Ragin' Cajuns gave KSU a winning non-conference record for the 15th consecutive season.
