Kansas State vs. TCU update: Wildcats take 10-0 lead after 1

The Kansas State Wildcats have grabbed a 10-0 lead against the TCU Horned Frogs after the first quarter in Fort Worth.

The No. 2 Wildcats got going early on the arm of Collin Klein, playing despite a head injury last week that made it unclear whether he would start tonight. On the first play of Kansas State's second possession, Klein connected with Allen Chapman for a 62-yard pass play that set the Wildcats up at the TCU 27-yard line.

As is customary for Kansas State in the red zone, Klein capped the drive with three straight runs, the last of which being a 7-yard jaunt for a touchdown.

A 31-yard Tramaine Thompson punt return set the Wildcats up with a 40-yard field on its next drive. After five plays netted only 16 yards, Anthony Cantele put through a 41-yard field goal for the 10-0 lead.

Klein is 3-7 for 80 yards in the passing game, while adding 31 yards on five rush attempts.
