No. 20 Kansas State relying on unheralded group of wide receivers to supplement passing game

Tyler Lockett is the third member of his family to play wide receiver for Bill Snyder at Kansas State, so the 74-year-old coach knows what the family lineage can bring to an offense.

He also knows the perils of building solely around the All-American wide receiver. Not only has he been prone to injury, it also handcuffs what the Wildcats can do offensively

That's why it doesn't matter whether a wide receiver is running with the first team or the scout team, everybody who lines up for No. 20 Kansas State carries the same expectations. It was that way in a season-opening win over Stephen F. Austin. And it will surely be that way when the Wildcats open Big 12 play Saturday at Iowa State.
