Wildcats turn focus toward Kansas

A little more than an hour after Kansas State defeated No. 7 Texas for the program's first-ever win against a Top-10 opponent on the road, senior wide receiver Jordy Nelson walked to the team bus and could already sense the anticipation for the Wildcats' next challenge down the road.
