The Hurricanes Defeat Georgia Tech In A Wild Game

#15 Kansas State upsets #6 Oklahoma

Kansas State came into Oklahoma on Saturday night with one objective.  The objective was to avenge a heartbreaking loss last season at the hands of the Sooners.  K State took the lead in the second quarter 7-3 with a 2 yard fumble recovered touchdown by Jarell Childs.  K State kept the lead for the most of the game.  The final score was 24-19 for K State.   K State’s QB Collin Klien was the star of the game with 149 yards passing and 79 rushing.  Klien also had a passing TD and scored a rushing TD with a 5-yard run into the end zone in the early part of the fourth quarter.  The Sooners’ QB Landry Jones had a bad game giving up a fumble and throwing for an interception.  The game puts Kansas State’s record at 4-0 and the win should put them in the top ten if not they will be very close.

#21 Kansas State Beats Up The Miami Hurricanes

On Saturday the number 21 ranked team in the country Kansas State hosted the Miami Hurricanes for the first time ever.  K State was led by their Heisman candidate QB Collin Klein.  Klein had 169 yards passing, 54 yards rushing and 2 TD passes in a win against Missouri State last week.  On the other side of the stadium the Miami Hurricanes were riding the hopes of their break out freshman running back Duke Johnson.  Johnson 7 rushes for 135 yards and 2 TD runs in a week 1 win over Boston College.  While K State was favored going into the game the Canes had a chance at pulling out the upset on the road.

The game however told a story that not even those favoring K State would have predicted.  K State crushed the Canes by a final score of 52-13.  The first quarter saw Klein and the K State squad looking really strong and dominating the Canes on the offensive side of the ball.  The Canes made some mistakes in the first half, such as Duke Johnson dropping an open pass which would have led to a great gain of yards for the Canes.  K State played their brand of football by using up the clock and wearing down the defense.  K State made a mistake going into halftime when Klein tried a trick play reverse pass to his running back that led to a loss of yards and a missed field goal by K State.  The momentum appeared to have changed going into half time with K State leading 24-6.

When the second half started the Canes had many chances to get their offense going but could not capitalize.  K State picked their play back up even stronger than before in the 4th quarter.  K State out scored The Canes 21 to 7 in the final quarter.  Collin Klein put on a clinic of passing and rushing to finish the game.  The only bright spot for the Canes in the second half and probably the entire game was a 77 yard kick off return by Duke Johnson.  The Canes will have to work on developing Johnson who has tremendous potential but made too many mistakes.

Collin Klein had 210 yards passing, 81 yards rushing.  With 1 TD pass and 3 rushing TD’s Klein showed how talented he really is on Saturday.  We could be seeing Klein with the Heisman Trophy in December if he continues to put up numbers like he did in this game.
