The 1996 Kansas State Wildcats football team represented Kansas State University in the 1996 NCAA Division I-A football season. The team's head football coach was Bill Snyder. The Wildcats played their home games in KSU Stadium. 1996 saw the Wildcats finish with a record of 9–3, and a 6–2 record in Big 12 Conference play.
