Player of the game
Allen Chapman. The cornerback made three interceptions and returned one for a touchdown.
Reason to hope
K-State is undefeated after nine games.
Reason to mope
It’s always nerve-racking when a starting quarterback leaves the game for any reason.
K-State heads to TCU, which defeated West Virginia in overtime on Saturday. The Horned Frogs have been up and down this season, but have a strong defense and showed poise beating the Mountaineers. They are capable of challenging K-State.
Special guests at Saturday’s game included two Orange Bowl representatives and NFL scouts from the Chiefs, Jets and 49ers. Former K-State players Carson Coffman and Tysyn Hartman, who is currently playing for the Chiefs, also watched the game from the sidelines.
• Injured linebacker Tre Walker led K-State onto the field Saturday, but did not play. He wore his jersey, but also sported sweats and no pads. He wasn’t walking on crutches as he indicated earlier in the week on twitter, but he did have a noticeable limp.
