KSU 23 TCU 10 Final
Kansas State didn’t exactly roll over TCU with a video game-like score at the end of Saturday night’s contest, but the Wildcats may have very well earned the title of the nation’s No. 1 team with a score of.
Despite the injury he suffered last Saturday in a win over Oklahoma State, QB Collin Klein took the field against TCU and delivered an another game-winning performance. It wasn’t the typical Heisman-like performance for the Kansas State senior, but it was enough to propel his team past a stiff TCU defense.
Klein finished the evening with 145 yards through the air and 50 yards on the ground along with two rushing TDs. Klein’s reported head injury didn’t seem to bother him as he continuously put his safety on the line with runs right up the middle of TCU’s defense. Klein’s one mistake of the night was an interception thrown early in the first quarter.
Klein’s counterpart, TCU QB Trevone Boykin, struggled to produce offense for his team, but his toughness was showcased as he continued to remain in the game after suffering a shoulder injury early in the first half.
Boykin scraped together 164 yards through the air to go along with his one TD pass, which occurred late in the fourth quarter when a comeback was out of reach.
With the win, Kansas State improves to 10-0 on the season as they await the release of the new BCS standings. Alabama’s loss to Texas A&M this Saturday will certainly factor into the new standings, and the implications for the Wildcats will be a No. 1 ranking that they have so patiently waited for.
Kansas State will look to continue their undefeated streak with a road game against Baylor next Saturday and a final home game against Texas. TCU will look to rebound from tonight’s loss with home games against Texas and Oklahoma.
