After a tied first quarter, the No. 15 Kansas State Wildcats took a 7-point lead over the North Texas Mean Green in the second quarter and have a 14-7 lead after the first half of play at Bill Snyder Family Football Stadium.
The Wildcats struggled to get anything going offensively in the first quarter, finishing the opening quarter without a first down, but returned a kickoff 96 yards for a score following a North Texas touchdown. In the second quarter, the K-State offense found much more success, beginning with a nine-play, 87-yard drive.
However, that drive ended with a turnover on downs as the Wildcats elected to go for it on the North Texas 6-yard line and were stopped. A missed Mean Green field goal gave K-State the ball back and the Wildcats took advantage with a 38-yard touchdown pass from Collin Klein to Tramaine Thompson.
North Texas will begin the second half with the ball.
