Kansas State came up just a little short in a wild game that saw both teams combine for 32 points in the fourth quarter alone. The Wildcats fall 52-45 to Oklahoma State after Collin Klein's desperation pass fell incomplete in the end zone on the final play of the game.
The Wildcats briefly took the lead with 5:16 to go in the game on a Klein four yard run to make the score 38-37. That lead was short lived as Brandon Weeden quickly found Justin Blackmon on a 54 yard pass and run that put the Cowboys back in front. The two point conversion was good and Oklahoma State led once again 45-38.
Kansas State responded with a long kick return on the ensuing kick off and once again tied the score at 45-45 with a Collin Klein 12 yard touchdown run with 3:18 to go in the game. The Cowboys needed just 1:02 to go back ahead as Joseph Randle sprinted 23 yards for the eventual game winning touchdown.
It looked like Klein was going to be able to pull off a miracle yet again as he willed the Wildcats down the field but was unable to complete three tries into the endzone.
Klein finished 22 of 38 for 231 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He did most of his damage with his legs runing for 144 yards and three more touchdowns.
Klein's performance nearly overshadows the performance of Brandon Weeden who threw for 502 yards and four touchdowns. Justin Blackmon caught seven passes for 205 yards and two touchdowns. Tracy Moore finished with nine catches for 146 yards and a score.
