Great Games in K-State Football History - Number 4 - K-State 52 Wyoming 17, December 29, 1993

K-State's first bowl victory was a big one.  K-State finished the 1993 regular season with a 9-2-1 record, 4-2-1 in conference, which was good enough for third place in the Big 8.  They were ranked number 20 in the AP poll.

K-State dominated this game and had quite a few impressive individual performances.  JJ Smith rushed for 133 yards.  Chad May passed for 275 yards and two touchdowns.  Andre Coleman caught eight passes for 144 yards and also returned a punt for a touchdown.

The 1993 season included a couple of milestones for the program.  K-State started 5-0 for the first time since 1931.  The 9-2-1 overall record was the best for the program since 1910 and K-State was undefeated at home.  Bill Snyder also won Big 8 coach of the year honors.

Capping off a program changing regular season was the impressive performance in the Copper Bowl.

I found a video of the complete 1993 Copper Bowl online:

I also have videos of a lot of the individual highlights.  Here's the touchdown pass from Chad May to Andre Coleman:

This is one of my favorite K-State football games.  K-State showed dominance and speed against Wyoming in front of a national audience watching on ESPN and showed everyone that they weren't going anywhere but up.
