Collin Klein had his worst game of the year. The Kansas State Wildcats won anyway on Saturday night, beating the Texas Longhorns 17-13. The Longhorns offense still looked pathetic for a second week and the Kansas State defense helped to keep the Wildcats on top for another gritty win to take K-State to 9-2 on the year.
After a week of talking about Klein as a Heisman candidate next year, Klein went 9 of 17 for 83 yards and 1 touchdown, a 16 yard pass to Chris Harper in the second quarter. Klein added another touchdown run in the third quarter to provide most of K-State’s offense.
The Texas Longhorns replaced Daniel Ash with Case McCoy in the third quarter the Texas offense gained a spark when they were trailing 17-3 and McCoy was able to get Texas back in the game on a touchdown drive and trail 17-10.
Texas had the only substantial drive in the fourth quarter when McCoy drove Texas 78 yards, but the Kansas State defense came up big to stop Texas at the 9-yard line and held Texas to a 26-yard field goal. Texas had one last chance a they had the ball last, but they came up short at midfield.
