Snyder, Kansas State players refuse to buy into hyperbole surrounding Auburn showdown

Kansas State football coach Bill Snyder has a message for anyone treating the Wildcats’ upcoming game against No. 5 Auburn like the Super Bowl.

It’s one of 12 games on the schedule.

“Thursday night is a not a season,” Snyder said Tuesday during his weekly news conference. “Thursday night is another game and it is the most valuable game that we will play so far this season. The following week will be the most valuable game we play in the season. It’s one step at a time.”

Snyder understandably wants to downplay the importance of a rare midweek game against a nonconference power. He has built a career on taking things one day at a time, striving to be 1-0 each week, and he wants his players to do the same.
