The 2012 Kansas State Wildcats football team represents Kansas State University in the 2012 NCAA Division I FBS football season. The Wildcats play their home games at Bill Snyder Family Stadium, in Manhattan, Kansas as they have done since 1968. 2012 is the 117th season in school history. The Wildcats are led by head coach Bill Snyder in his 21st overall and fourth straight season since taking over for his second tenure in 2009. K-State is a member of the Big 12 Conference. Conference play began with an upset victory over the Oklahoma Sooners, which was the first win for the Wildcats in Norman since October 25, 1997, and the regular conference season came to a close with a fifth straight win over the Texas Longhorns, ending with an 8-1 record to clinch a share of Big 12 title with Oklahoma. Both teams made the postseason for the first time since the 2003 Big 12 Championship Game. Kansas State was invited to the Fiesta Bowl for the third time, where they were defeated by Oregon. The Wildcats suffered their second consecutive Fiesta Bowl loss since 2003 in the 2004 Fiesta Bowl, ending with an 11-2 record.

Off-season[edit]

The 2011 Wildcats finished the season with a 10–3 record overall, 7–2 in Big-12 play, behind Oklahoma State. They were invited to the Cotton Bowl Classic, where they were defeated by the Arkansas Razorbacks, making it the first Cotton Bowl Classic loss for the Wildcats since the 1996 team lost to the BYU Cougars in the 1997 Cotton Bowl Classic.

In mid-August, highly touted incoming freshman quarterback Tavarious Bender decided to leave the team and the university for undisclosed reasons.[1]
