NCAA Game Summary - Texas at Kansas State

(Saturday, November 6th)

Final Score: Kansas State 39, Texas 14

Manhattan, KS (Sports Network) - Quarterback Collin Klein ran for a game-high 127 yards and scored twice as the Kansas State Wildcats dominated the Texas Longhorns, 39-14, in Big 12 Conference action at Bill Snyder Family Stadium.

Klein carried the ball 25 times for the Wildcats (6-3, 3-3 Big 12) as they became bowl eligible and snapped a two-game slide. Klein, who started in place of Carson Coffman, also completed a pair of passes to Daniel Thomas for nine yards, but that was the extent of the team's passing attack.

The Longhorns (4-5, 2-4) were paced by Garrett Gilbert who completed 32-of-59 passes for 272 yards and a TD, but he was also picked off five times by the KSU defense.

Kansas State posted 39 consecutive points in the outing, beginning with a 34- yard TD run by Thomas less than a minute into the first quarter. Kicker Josh Cherry added a 30-yard field goal to make the score 10-0 at the end of one period of play.

Klein had TD runs of 12 and 10 yards in the second quarter to boost the lead to 24-0 at the break.

In the third it was Thomas who found the end zone from nine yards out, while William Powell registered an eight-yard TD run for the Wildcats to make the score 39-0 after the team recorded a two-point conversion.

Capping a nine-play, 78-yard drive, the Longhorns scored their first points of the contest at the 12:55 mark of the fourth quarter as Cody Johnson landed in the end zone from four yards away. Gilbert managed to collect himself and hit Patrick McNamara with a one-yard TD pass with 31 seconds remaining, but by then it was too little, too late.

The Wildcats picked up the lopsided victory despite converting just 2-of-11 on third down and generating a mere 270 yards of offense.

With the loss tonight the Longhorns are guaranteed to have their worst record in the 14 years under Mack Brown.
