John Hubert enjoys strong season for Kansas State offense

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Kansas State Wildcats running back John Hubert is off to a stellar start to the year for coach Bill Snyder's team.

While Collin Klein is making his case for Heisman votes, Kansas State running back John Hubert is quietly putting up a big season behind his talented quarterback. Against the Kansas Jayhawks Saturday, the junior rushed for 101 yards on just 10 attempts and scored four touchdowns in the 56-16 route.

KSU head coach Bill Snyder said that the offensive line and fullback Braden Wilson have opened all the right holes for Hubert, but he credited his running back with doing something with the holes, per a postgame transcript from the team's website:

"Our offensive line did a nice job, his fullback Braden (Wilson) had a nice game blocking for him and he (Hubert) is pretty good about not making an awful lot of mistakes fitting the ball where he does not have a chance. He does not run it in the wrong holes; he puts it were it needs to be. He has got good vision and is able to see more than what is just right in front of his nose."

Despite the impressive numbers, Hubert was second on the team in rushing. Klein took 10 carries for 116 yards and two touchdowns.

On the year, Hubert has 76 attempts for 527 yards and eight touchdowns. Hubert broke out during his sophomore season, taking 200 carries for 970 yards and three touchdowns last year.
