Charlie Weis: 'There's no blaring weakness' with Kansas State football

Weis knows he's in for a challenge in Saturday's Sunflower Showdown

Kansas State is undefeated and the No. 7 team in the country, by all accounts a complete football team. One of those accounts from their opponent this weekend -- Kansas Jayhawks coach Charlie Weis.

During the team's media session earlier this week, Weis said the Wildcats (4-0, 1-0 Big 12) are a team with "no blaring weakness":

"You know, I think that this is a team that really plays sound fundamentally on both sides of the football and lives off of your mistakes. And if you make mistakes, they pounce on you. They don't turn the ball over much or take too many penalties. They're just a sound, fundamental team."

The coach of the Jayhawks (1-3, 0-1) was also impressed with the Wildcats' defense:

"Those big guys are protecting the linebackers who run all over the field. That's a good start. And then you've got four solid guys in the secondary that kind of say you're going to have to throw everything in front of us because we're not going to let you throw to both lines."

Weis also said it's necessary for the Jayhawks to be disciplined against the Wildcats' sound offense:

"They do the same thing on the other side of the ball. This is not a trickery and deceit team. I mean, they're going to smash it down your throat. And you better be ready to tackle both the quarterback and the running back, because they're going to have the ball in their hands a whole bunch of times in the game. And that's what we're up against."

Kansas and Kansas State meet Saturday at 11 a.m., with live coverage on FX.
