Texas Longhorns 24, Kansas State Wildcats 42 — FINAL

Bill Snyder has resurrected the Kansas State program. They are Big 12 champions and 11-1. They would have a legitimate claim at the National Championship slot without a loss to Baylor. 

This game was punctuated by Collin Klein and John Hubert each having a hand in three touchdowns. Their combined speed and vision out of the backfield created 178 yards and 5 touchdowns worth of offense on the ground.

The defense also did their part by intercepting Case McCoy twice while he had a surprisingly good game. McCoy finished 26-for-34 (76.5 percent) for 314 yards and two touchdowns. The biggest difference in this game is that his two interceptions led to touchdowns for the Wildcats.

The player of the game is easily Collin Klein and his three touchdown performance. He has a legitimate shot to sneak in the Heisman win and should definitely be invited to New York.
