Not that we will know but I am wondering who will be available that was injured.. That should be at least interesting to see.

If we don't game plan to run the ball most of the night against their defense it would be a mistake. Coach Dickey and our Olinemen should be thinking about run blocking in their sleep. I I hope we play all three backs wearing their Dlinemen down with a fresh set of legs and different skill set in our backs. The more we can keep that QB and offense off the field the better for us. Not that we don't see high scoring offenses every week, but this QB is very good. I am hoping he sits this one to save his draft status.

ucla media said yesterday that rosen is playing in the bowl game. he's a high character guy and wants to win one for their now-fired coach, mora.

Dalton Risner is listed as starting right tackle for the 2017 Cactus Bowl, according to the depth chart just released by K-State. D.J. Reed is also listed as starting cornerback. Starting quarterback is listed as Skylar Thompson *OR* Alex Delton for the first time in 2017.

This will be Skylar's breakout game on a national stage.

Not to take anything away from his three fourth quarter come from behind wins.

Given the recent signing of JUCO CB teammates, I would say its a strong bet that Reed is leaving the program after this year.

Also: "Snyder says that Dalton Risner likely will not be available to play in the Cactus Bowl."

"Coach Snyder says that Alex Delton will play in the game, however: "how much and to what degree remains to be seen."

Josh Rosen said he’s still in concussion protocol, waiting for clearance for contact.

I'd heard that Rosen was going to play to try and improve his image, I guess some people are questioning his resolve to play football.
