Kansas State vs. Oklahoma State final: Wildcats win 44-30

The Kansas State Wildcats defeated the Oklahoma State Cowboys, 44-30. The stories of this game unfortunately revolved around injuries, as both starting quarterbacks exited the contest in the third quarter.

Cowboys quarterback Wes Lunt exited after taking a hard hit prior to throwing his third interception of the game. Heisman Trophy hopeful Collin Klein scored a rushing touchdown early in the third quarter, but Kansas State's star quarterback didn’t come back out for the team’s next offensive series.

Klein’s injury remains undisclosed, but he’s been seen shaking his wrist on the sidelines. Some have said that the Wildcats held their quarterback out as a precautionary measure given the team’s hefty lead.

Box Score Hero: Despite the many points put up by the Wildcats, there was not a standout player stats-wise since the team scored on offense, defense and special teams. Running back John Hubert only rushed for 38 yards on his nine carries, but two of them went for scores.

Rankings Ramifications: Though their loss was to the No. 2 team in the nation, Oklahoma State is likely to lose their top-25 BCS ranking. Kansas State should remain a top team, though the loss of Klein hurts in a big way.

But Did They Cover? Kansas State entered the game favored by 7.5 points, so they were able to cover the spread.
