The Wildcats (8-5) used a wild two-minute stretch in the third quarter to power a second half comeback at the Cactus Bowl on Tuesday to beat UCLA 35-17 and complete a flourishing kick to the 2017 season under the team's venerable head coach. From 2006-15, the game was played at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe. They are still two teams on a hot streak.
"That's a hard one just because we feel so tied to the Snyder family, and they've done great things for K-State, but I fully have confidence in the athletic director, and what more can Snyder do?"
With the Kansas State victory in the Cactus Bowl, here are three takeaways from the game.
UCLA would obviously be in much better shape if Josh Rosen can suit up for the Cactus Bowl than if he is sidelined.
Reports surfaced this week that Rosen wouldn't play in the bowl game, possibly to protect himself from injury. If he gets the medical clearance, Rosen has said he will be on the field at Chase Field. The Bruins ranked among the bottom dozen defenses nationally, allowing almost 37 points and 490 yards per game.
The Wildcats tallied 345 yards on the ground on 49 carries, including five runs of at least 20 yards and a pair of touchdown runs dialing in at 41 and 68 yards apiece.

Rosen finished his final season at UCLA with 3,756 yards, 26 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions in 11 games. From 1989-99, the game was played at Arizona Stadium in Tuscan before being played at Bank One Ballpark in Phoenix from 2000-05.
But the Wildcats aren't a defensive juggernaut. This is the last game with Jedd Fisch as interim coach, and he will bridge the Jim Mora and Chip Kelly eras with a bowl victory for UCLA.
For the first half of the game, it looked like Devon Modster was going to be enough.
Kansas State would retaliate with four touchdowns in as many possessions to start the second half. Of course, that will all depend on whether Rosen elects to return to the college game, something he hasn't entirely ruled out yet.
THE PUBLIC LIKES: As of Tuesday morning, 72% of the betting tickets were on the Wildcats to cover the spread and 83% of the money was also on Kansas State. He co-coached that game with Urban Meyer, who had taken the Florida job three weeks earlier but returned to be part of Utah's postseason win over Pittsburgh after Whittingham had been promoted to head coach. Both teams will end their 2017 campaigns at 7-6 in the overall standings after the Bruins prevail in the desert.
