North Texas Vs. Kansas State 2012: Wildcats Down Mean Green, 35-21

The Kansas State Wildcats used a steady effort to defeat the North Texas Mean Green 35-21 on Saturday night at Bill Snyder Family Stadium.

After a North Texas touchdown early in the third quarter made it a 14-13 game, 15th-ranked Kansas State began to put the game away. K-State quarterback Collin Klein led the Wildcats on an eight-play, 77-yard drive. A 21-yard pass to Tramaine Thompson was originally called incomplete, but video review awarded Thompson with the touchdown, putting the Wildcats up 21-13.

Five minutes later, Kansas State had completed a 75-yard scoring drive as North Texas began to wear down. The strong second half led to a big box score from Klein, who would also punch in a one-yard run on the ground for a 35-13 lead.

Klein finished his night with 238 yards on 16-21 passing while adding 84 yards on the ground. Thompson tallied 102 receiving yards and two touchdowns through the air.

North Texas quarterback Derek Thompson was an accurate 25-28 for 209 yards and one touchdown in the loss.

Kansas State now moves on to play 5th-ranked Oklahoma on the road next week.
