The No. 24 Oklahoma State Cowboys and the unbeaten No. 2 Kansas State Wildcats were deadlocked at 7-7 after the first quarter in the showdown between the two teams at Bill Snyder Stadium in Manhattan.
The Cowboys took the early lead on a 54-yard touchdown strike from quarterback Wes Lunt to speedy wide receiver Austin Hays with 9:02 remaining in the quarter. Oklahoma State made the score happen in just six plays, with the drive traveling a total of 80 yards.
Kansas State answered with just over six minutes remaining in the quarter. After stud quarterback Collin Klein connected for a 50-yard completion to wideout Tyler Lockett to put the Wildcats on the Cowboys' 7-yard line, Kansas State running back John Hubert punched it in on a one-yard option pitch to even the score at 7-7. The touchdown was Hubert's 11th of the 2012 season.
The two offenses could have plenty more fireworks in store for the rest of the game, as the two teams have averaged a combined 88.7 points per game this season.
