Kansas State, which never used to win anywhere, is good enough now to rip down goalposts on the road. Minutes after Chad May's 379 passing yards led No. 19 K-State past Kansas, 21-13, for the Wildcats' first victory in Lawrence in 25 years, K-Staters poured onto the field and dismantled the north goal post. The largely pro-Kansas crowd of more than 48,000 could only sit and watch. "I just think our fans were hyped," K-State running back J.J. Smith said. "Things are changing around.

TRAVIS RELEFORD scored 12 points and No. 3 Kansas held off No. 11 Kansas State down the stretch for a 59-55 victory Tuesday night that gave the visiting Jayhawks sole possession of first place in the Big 12. Ben McLemore and Jeff Withey added 11 points each for the Jayhawks (17-1, 5-0), who pushed their nation-leading winning streak to 16 games - matching the third-longest under coach Bill Self - and ended the Wildcats' 12-game home winning streak. Shane Southwell, who scored a career-high 19 points, got Kansas State (15-3, 4-1)

Bobby Knight was at his master psychologist best. With his Indiana Hoosiers down by 16 at the half to Kansas State in the opening round of the Maui Invitational in Lahaina, Hawaii, Knight didn't yell and scream at his players. "I told them we needed to do things a little better than we were doing or we were going to get run out of there," he said. The Hoosiers (4-0) tightened up on defense and slowly moved into contention. They burst ahead with 1:26 left on a three-pointer by Luke Recker, and won, 71-70.

The victories and the inflated statistics count, but pardon skeptics for wondering if Kansas State is as good as its absurd level of domination suggests. The fifth-ranked Wildcats (4-0) have proved little in routs of Iowa, Louisiana Tech, Ball State and North Texas other than, well, they are merciless when it comes to snatching candy from babies. Kansas State has outscored those teams, which are a combined 1-15, by a margin of 212-27. But the downy-soft schedule ends Saturday when K-State visits Colorado, which is much better than its 0-3 record.

One of Kansas State's rewards for going 10-2, winning the Holiday Bowl and leading the nation in total defense was to have powerhouse Florida swoop in and hire defensive coordinator Bob Stoops away from the nouveau riche Wildcats. Another nine-victory season - and K-State has put together three such years in a row - and plunderers from other big-time programs almost certainly will offer miracle-working head coach Bill Snyder his own ticket out of Manhattan, Kan. It long has been presumed that No. 21 Kansas State has been living on borrowed time, but reality could arrive as early as Saturday in the form of the visiting Texas Tech Red Raiders, who are coming off something of a dream season themselves after going 9-3 and winning the Copper Bowl.

It's getting closer at the top of the Associated Press Top 25 college football poll. Tennessee, with a last-minute, 28-24 win over Arkansas, was No. 1 for the second straight week, but Kansas State made up lots of ground with its 40-30 victory over Nebraska on Saturday. The Volunteers (9-0) received 37 first-place votes and 1,709 points, while the Wildcats (10-0) collected 29 first-place votes and 1,699 points from the 70 sports writers and broadcasters on the AP panel. Last week, when they became No. 1 for the first time in 42 years, the Vols had 46 first-place votes and 1,718 points.

Kansas State's 10-point win over Nebraska might have been the biggest in school history, but it wasn't enough to move the Wildcats into the top two spots in the Bowl Championship Series standings, which will determine who plays for the national title in the Jan. 4 Fiesta Bowl. For the second straight week, Tennessee was first, followed by UCLA. K-State is first in the USA Today/ESPN (coaches) poll and second in the Associated Press (media) vote. Those rankings account for a combined 25 percent of the BCS formula.

Alex, I'll take steamrollers for $300, please. The answer: Cincinnati, Akron, Northern Illinois, Indiana State, Cincinnati, Northern Illinois, Ohio, Bowling Green, Indiana State, Northern Illinois and Northeast Louisiana. The question: Who were Kansas State's non-conference opponents since it opened the 1995 season with a 34-7 win over Temple? All but three of those games, of course, were played in the other Manhattan. The Wildcats have not lost outside the Big 12 since Oct. 17, 1992, 28-16, at Utah State.

Kenny Smith scored 19 points, and Joe Wolf added 16 last night to power fourth-ranked North Carolina to an 81-62 victory over Kansas State in Kansas City, Mo. North Carolina (8-1) fashioned a 43-33 halftime lead and then put it away with a 24-8 run at the beginning of the second half for a 67-41 bulge. Kansas State (8-3) never got closer than 19 points in the second half. The partisan K-State crowd in Kemper Arena saw the underdog Wildcats trail early by 10 points and pull to within 29-27 with six minutes left in the first half.

Coming off a season-opening 6-0 loss to lightly regarded Maryland last week, Temple will play the first of the six '98 bowl teams on its schedule today, meeting Kansas State in Manhattan, Kan. For Temple, this may be as good a time as any to catch the Wildcats, who will be playing their first game of the season. The Wildcats, who were ranked No. 4 in the country before losing to Purdue, 37-34, in the Alamo Bowl last winter, are regrouping offensively after losing star quarterback Michael Bishop, as well as four starters on the line, the school's all-time leading rusher, and its all-time leading scorer.

THERE WAS a good chance that Buddy Hield was going to be drafted in the first round last year, but he decided to return to Oklahoma. "My main goal is to go to the Final Four," he said last April. "Why not (try to) go there? It's my last year. Be the best player I can be and help this program go forward. " Mission accomplished. Hield has been the best player in the tournament and the Sooners are in the Final Four for the first time since 2002. Road to the Final Four Oklahoma's toughest test was in the second round when VCU hung around until the Sooners won by four.

THE BEST thing La Salle might have going for it at the moment is fortitude, a character trait that's helped take the Explorers from Dayton to Kansas City to Los Angeles in less than a week. Who knows? Maybe it can even carry them all the way to Atlanta. The Explorers will meet Wichita State in a West Regional Sweet 16 game Thursday night at the Staples Center. "We won two one-possession games [in KC, over Kansas State and SEC champ Mississippi]," coach John Giannini said Tuesday in a conference call from the left coast.

KANSAS CITY - Please feel free to dream on. For the first time since 1955 - when Tom Gola's team, the defending national champions, lost right here in the title game to Bill Russell and San Francisco - La Salle has won twice in the NCAA Tournament. Take time to digest that for a moment. The No. 13 seed Explorers (23-9), one of the last teams even to get into the field, somehow found a way to hang on, when it looked as if they had nothing left, and got past fourth-seeded Kansas State (27-7)

KANSAS CITY - La Salle's first NCAA Tournament game in 21 years, and its first NCAA win in 23, ended Wednesday night in Dayton around 11:15. The Explorers left the arena about 1 hour, 15 minutes later. After a brief stop at their hotel and a 20-minute ride to the airport, their charter flight took off at approximately 1:30. It landed here some 2 hours later, but there is a 60-minute time-zone difference. Following another bus ride to another hotel the players finally got to their rooms in time to maybe catch the last "SportsCenter" replay from the West Coast before hopefully going to bed. The good news, other than the fact that they're still playing?

By Dick Jerardi   My first game in the NCAA Tournament for the Daily News was 25 years ago, a first-rounder in South Bend between La Salle (with senior Tim Legler, sophomore Lionel Simmons and freshman Doug Overton, NBA players all) and Kansas State, with Mitch Richmond and Steve Henson. It was also coach Speedy Morris' first NCAA game. It was the first of five teams K-State coach Lon Kruger would take to the tournament. La Salle had a really good team, but K-State was much more experienced and also very talented.

SELECTION SUNDAY is March 17 so it is that time again. Here is my field of 68 at the moment. The vast majority of the 37 at-large teams are set in stone. There are approximately six spots in play. In the one-bid leagues, I either projected a winner, went with the team leading or both. Unlike last season's NCAA Tournament, there is no logical champion, not even an obvious favorite.   America East (1) Hartford. I plead guilty to hoping old friend John Gallagher gets his young, improving Hawks team to the NCAA.

  In Eugene, Ore., Jordan Williamson hit a 37-yard field goal in overtime and No. 14 Stanford upset top-ranked Oregon, 17-14, late Saturday to deny the Ducks a chance to clinch the Pac-12 North and derail their straight shot at the BCS championship game. If both Stanford and Oregon finish with wins in their final games next weekend, both will finish with one conference loss, which means Stanford will win the head-to-head matchup and go to the Pac-12 championship game for a chance to play in the Rose Bowl.

Kansas State and Oregon are now on course to play for the BCS national championship. After Alabama was upset by Texas A&M, the new BCS standings have the Wildcats (.9674) first and the Ducks (.9497) second. Notre Dame (.9396) is third, not too far behind, but most likely in need of a loss by Oregon or Kansas State to reach the title game on Jan. 7 in Miami. "These teams are in their order, and the only way that order changes is if somebody gets beat," said Jerry Palm of CBS Sports and collegebcs.com.
