ATLANTA (AP) -- Kansas State's Bill Snyder, who guided the Wildcats to an 11-1 regular season, is the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year.

Snyder was announced as the unanimous winner of the award at halftime of Monday night's Chick-fil-A Bowl between No. 9 LSU and No. 14 Clemson. The winner is picked each year by votes from a panel which includes previous winners.

Kansas State will play Oregon in Thursday's Fiesta Bowl.

Clemson's Dabo Swinney won the 2011 award, named for the former longtime Georgia Tech coach.
