Kansas University football coach Mark Mangino said Monday the quarterbacks were as healthy as they'd ever been, presumably leading to no surprises during Saturday's game.
"We're going to proceed the way we had the last game," Mangino said. "There's no major change in store."
That means freshman Kerry Meier will start and receive a majority of the snaps, with fellow freshman Todd Reesing possibly being inserted for a couple of series.
Doing all right
The one scholarship quarterback we haven't seen yet is getting increased work on the scout team.
Shawnee Mission West product Tyler Lawrence has quarterbacked against the first-team defense in practice for most of the season, a position that Mangino said has made him noticeably better.
"We like Tyler," Mangino said last week. "You can see the progress that he's made from the time we started training camp until now. He has a bright future for us."
That's a record
With Saturday's game being shown on Fox Sports Net and next week's Border War game with Missouri being aired by ABC, Kansas will finish the regular season with seven of its 12 games on television - a school record.
Not surprisingly, Kansas State players got some postgame love after shocking No. 4 Texas, 45-42, Saturday at Bill Snyder Family Stadium.
Freshman quarterback Josh Freeman was named Big 12 offensive player of the week Sunday, while punt-return specialist Yamon Figurs shared special-teams player-of-the-week honors with Colorado kicker Mason Crosby.
Freeman won the offensive award for the second straight week.
