K-State’s leading picker a healthy go for Fiesta Bowl

When Kansas State takes the field for their Fiesta Bowl game with Oregon, the Wildcats should do so with one of their most veteran and productive members of their secondary at or near full health.

Safety Ty Zimmerman missed the final two games of regular season with what was described as a lower-leg injury.  Zimmerman said over the weekend that he should be nearly 100-percent healthy for the Jan. 3 matchup with the Ducks.

“I feel great,” Zimmerman said according to the Dallas Morning News. “The biggest thing is mentally getting back into the game. I just have a greater appreciation for the game after sitting out for that time.”

In the 10 games in which Zimmerman started and played, he picked off five passes.  That interception total tied him for the team lead.

The past three seasons, the redshirt junior has started 35 games.

    I don’t have any thing against k-state. I just don’t feel like they have a chance in this game.

    This will be an interesting game. Defensively it appears this game is equal. KS plays sound defensive football, as does Oregon. The Oregon offense just has more assets, certainly speed that KS has not seen before, and not just speed, but world class seriously scary speed at receiver, running back, and QB.

    Oregon is also attending its 4th straight BCS bowl, little wow factor for them. (KS, you know the quote: “We’re not in Kansas anymore”.

    This is where Oregon is comfortable out of the gate. A score to settle after losing the national title here 2 years ago by 3 points.

    In the end it is a game of scoring the most points. KS averages just over 40, Oregon just over 50. Can’t see KS taking a lead that is not surmountable. Oregon, on the other hand could put KS in a hole that negates the running game. If Kline has to pass, its over. Oregon 48 Kansas State 37

    Has the makings of an offensive explosion. A bowl I’m actually looking forward to watching… They got this matchup right
