File:Kansas State Wildcats wordmark.svg

The Kansas State Wildcats football statistical leaders are individual statistical leaders of the Kansas State Wildcats football program in various categories,[1] including passing, rushing, receiving, total offense, defensive stats, and kicking. Within those areas, the lists identify single-game, single-season, and career leaders. The Wildcats represent Kansas State University in the NCAA's Big 12 Conference.

Although Kansas State began competing in intercollegiate football in 1896,[1] the school's official record book considers the "modern era" to have begun in 1949. Records from before this year are often incomplete and inconsistent, and they are generally not included in these lists.

These lists are dominated by more recent players for several reasons:

  • Since 1949, seasons have increased from 10 games to 11 and then 12 games in length.
  • The NCAA didn't allow freshmen to play varsity football until 1972 (with the exception of the World War II years), allowing players to have four-year careers.
  • Bowl games only began counting toward single-season and career statistics in 2002.[2] The Wildcats have played in 10 bowl games since then, allowing players in those seasons to accumulate additional statistics.
  • All of the Wildcats' ten highest seasons in total offensive yards have come since the year 1998.

These lists are updated through the end of the 2016 season.
