Kansas State has a running back hierarchy in place.
Even though Wildcats coach Bill Snyder has said his running backs have been in fierce competition with each other from the start of fall training camp to now, and even though the hierarchy could drastically change after Saturday’s game against Kent State, the point is we have a tangible order at the position.
1. John Hubert
2. Angelo Pease
3. Bryce Brown
A week after all three players split carries, there is no guarantee anyone other than Hubert will take hand-offs this Saturday. Snyder has said Pease will likely see a handful of touches, but he doesn’t know if Brown will see the field.
That means K-State fans need to get used to the idea of Hubert, at least in the short term, being the Wildcats’ featured running back. After rushing for 91 yards on 17 carries, including a long of 20 yards, against Eastern Kentucky, Hubert has earned the right to start.
