Beating Miami for the second straight year took on added meaning for senior linebacker Arthur Brown.
Brown began his college football career at Miami, but transferred to K-State after two unsuccessful seasons. He has since become a star defender for the Wildcats.
“This game, in particular, is great for me because I played at Miami,” Brown said. “But there are no hard feelings.”
Brown made six tackles against Miami a year ago, and played a key role in K-State’s late defensive stand. On Saturday, he made 10 tackles, a sack and recovered a fumble. His former teammates had to be impressed.
“It means something for him,” K-State receiver Chris Harper said. “He knows a lot of players over there. I don’t think he has a chip on his shoulder like they did him dirty or anything, but he wants to beat them.”
