Sunday Rewind: K-State 44, Okla. State 30


It was a strange victory for Kansas State.

Oklahoma State jumped out to an early lead. The Wildcats owned the second quarter and pulled away in the third quarter. Then Collin Klein left the game with an undisclosed injury and everyone’s attention turned to the sideline.

He did more than enough while he was in the game to help K-State win, and the Wildcats picked up another important victory. They inched closer to a Big 12 championship and a possible spot in the BCS championship game.

Sunday Rewind: K-State 55, West Virginia 14


Here’s how significant Kansas State’s 55-14 victory over West Virginia was Saturday night: Hardly anyone is talking about the fact that it gave the Wildcats a huge advantage in the Big 12 championship hunt.

On a wild and crazy day of Big 12 football, Kansas State became the final undefeated team in the conference with a hard-fought 27-21 victory at Iowa State.

The Wildcats were off their game a little bit, and certainly made more unforced errors than usual, but senior quarterback Collin Klein and their defense were more than good enough for them to win in a tough road environment.

Sunday Rewind: K-State 56, Kansas 16


The latest Sunflower Showdown felt a lot like the last two.

Kansas State won big 56-16, and once again looked dominant while beating its in-state rival.

Kansas did put up a good fight early, but the Wildcats were simply too strong and pulled away in the third quarter. With several highly ranked teams losing Saturday, they moved up in the national polls today to No. 6.

But it’s not like K-State players can be content with their accomplishments. The schedule toughens from here. Kansas was the last gimme on their slate. But they took care of business and beat the Jayhawks easily.

Sunday Rewind: K-State 24, Oklahoma 19


Kansas State turned Oklahoma’s Memorial Stadium, aka The Bob Stoops Fortress, into the site of a fun party Saturday night by defeating the Sooners 24-19.

It was a signature victory for both Bill Snyder, who beat his former assistant for the first time in the regular season, and his players, who didn’t belong on the same field as Oklahoma last year in a 58-17 blowout. The Wildcats handed the Sooners their fourth home loss since 1999 and their first home loss to a ranked opponent since Stoops came to Norman.

And they did it in impressive fashion. They played strong defense, effective offense and had Oklahoma players, particularly quarterback Landry Jones rattled for long parts of the game. K-State was the better team and proved it by coming away with a memorable win.
