Mistakes doomed the Kansas State football team on Saturday. The Wildcats turned the ball over four times and let a close game slip away from them in the third quarter. Here’s a deeper look:
THE GOOD 1. Collin Klein once again looked fantastic running the ball. The sophomore quarterback came off the bench to lead K-State on three scoring drives and amassed 141 rushing yards on 18 attempts. He also completed four of six passes for 65 yards and a touchdown.
