5:21 Third Quarter
No scoring updates here in the second half. Kansas State is still firmly in control up 34-0. Anthony Cantele is setting up to try a long field goal.
1:47 Second Quarter
Anthony Cantele just kicked a 49-yard field goal to increase Kansas State’s lead to 31-0.
With this type of advantage, the Wildcats will be able to play whoever they choose in the second half. Should be a good opportunity for backups to prove what they can do.
5:35 Second Quarter
Collin Klein is making all the right decisions in the second quarter. After leading K-State up field with a few nice passes, he just ran in a three-yard touchdown to make the score 28-0.
It appears the Wildcats are on their way to a blowout win. We’ll see how long it takes Bill Snyder to experiment with a few backup players.
9:42 Second Quarter
Collin Klein just tossed a three-yard touchdown pass to Sheldon Smith to give K-State a 21-0 lead over Kent State.
Klein has found a nice groove running the ball.
5:56 First Quarter
K-State started its last drive at the five-yard line, but with the help of two strong runs from Collin Klein and two key 15-yard penalties from Kent State, the Wildcats scored to pull ahead 14-0.
Klein ran in the touchdown from five yards away.
12:41 First Quarter
After going three-and-out on its opening drive, K-State scored the first touchdown of the game on defense.
David Garrett jumped in front of a pass from Kent State quarterback Spencer Keith for a pick-six interception. He returned the ball 47 yards for the touchdown.
The Wildcats will enjoy an early lead today 7-0.
With 30 minutes to kickoff Kansas State and Kent State are warming up under overcast skies. There is a strong chance of rain today, so weather could become a factor.
The Wildcats are looking to open up their playbook after getting off to a slow start against Eastern Kentucky two weeks ago. With Miami up next, this will be their last chance to experiment with plays and personnel against an inferior opponent.
Both teams will be playing in front of a sellout crowd. The stadium is already mostly full, with the visiting high school bands (for band day) sitting in the upper deck.
