AMES, Iowa (AP) -- The Big 12's oldest coach is about to meet the youngest.
Kansas State's Bill Snyder, 78, became just the seventh coach in FBS history to coach at least 300 games at one school earlier this season - and a win Saturday at Iowa State (1-6, 0-4) would give him 198 career victories, good for 25th all time.
Iowa State's Matt Campbell, at 36 the youngest Power Five coach in the country, just finished his seventh game with the Cyclones.
Campbell has only come out on top once, and the matchup against the Wildcats (4-3, 2-2) is one of the few games left that Iowa State has a reasonable chance of winning.
''I don't care what profession you're in, especially in the world of college football. It's hard to sustain success, and he's had this unique ability to do it,'' Campbell said of Snyder. ''It's a great matchup for our team (in terms of), where are we in our own culture? Because, to me, it says a lot each other's culture right now.''
Despite its dismal record, Iowa State has led at halftime in three of its four Big 12 games and is coming off a bye.
