Two former Kansas State Wildcats were crowned kings in Las Vegas Sunday night after the Kansas City Chiefs won Super Bowl 58. Felix Anudike-Uzomah and Ekow Boye-Doe will get rings in just thier first season in the NFL. While Boye-Doe did not record any stats, Anudike-Uzomah only recorded one tackle, but it was an important one.

Anudike-Uzomah recorded a tackle for loss on Offensive Player of the Year and All-Pro Christian McCaffery late in the first quarter to put the 49ers behind the sticks and force a long third down. The Kansas City native was part of a committee used to replace the injured Charles Omenihu after he tore his ACL in the AFC Championship game. Anudike-Uzomah paid off for the Chiefs this season after being selected in at the end of the first round in the 2023 NFL Draft.

Kansas State women's basketball bounced back Saturday after losing two straight games to Oklahoma and No. 8 Texas. The Wildcats won a nail-biter at home against Oklahoma State 69-68.

K-State left it up to thier top-notch defense to finish the job, and they did.
