Report: Kansas State coach accuses Auburn of stealing signals in close loss
Did Auburn’s defense have an unfair advantage shutting down Kansas State’s attack in Thursday night’s 20-14 Tigers win?
Wildcats head coach Bill Snyder seems to think so.
"They’re getting our signals," he told ESPN, explaining his team switched some of them at half.
Tigers head coach Gus Malzahn denied any foul play.
Florida State accused Auburn of doing the same thing in the national title game last season, but head coach Jimbo Fisher shouldered some of the blame.
"They had a couple of our signals a couple times and were getting to them," Fisher said. "That happens, people do it, and that’s our fault. You’ve got to change them, constantly rotate them, being able to get them in different ways. That’s part of the game. I don’t have a problem with that."
Whether or not Snyder’s accusation is true, the Wildcats did themselves no favors, committing three turnovers and missing three field goals in a six-point loss.
