Kyler Murray and Quinnen Williams lead this year's college football All-America team. Who else made the cut?

Snyder will be remembered for transforming Kansas State (1:07)

Adam Rittenberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Interesting rumblings today on Kansas State. I've heard various candidate combinations, all with North Dakota State's Chris Klieman, most with Memphis' Mike Norvell, some with Oregon defensive coordinator Jim Leavitt. Troy's Neal Brown, I'm told, also in consideration. Brown is unique because he followed a veteran coach (Larry Blakeney) and took over a Troy program that had been struggling a bit, like Kansas State is now. He's 30-8 since 2016.

Is now the time for Bill Snyder to retire?

Snyder built Kansas State football. He is Kansas State football. He's won 215 games at a place that managed two winning seasons in the 34 years before his arrival. But is Snyder's time finished?

Skylar Thompson returned from a concussion to throw for 213 yards and a touchdown, Blake Lynch hit four field goals and Kansas State's defense grounded high-flying Texas Tech in a 21-6 victory over the sloppy Red Raiders on Saturday.

Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

Kansas State dominated Texas Tech today, winning 21-6 on Senior Day in frigid Manhattan. The Wildcats must win at Iowa State next week to go to a bowl. The big question ahead: Will we see 79-year-old Bill Snyder back on the sideline at this stadium?
