Kicking the Tires: Montana State

This week's version of kicking the tires is going to take on a different form, because Montana State is an FCS team and I have yet to invent a way to compare apples (FBS stats) to oranges (FCS stats).  Give me time.

Anyway, using MSU's stats from its season-opening blowout of Adams State and our stats against North Texas, here are some things to keep an eye on.

Notable Individuals

K-State

Josh Freeman -- 18/24, 232 yards, 3 TDs, 0 INTs

Keithen Valentine -- 13 rushes, 65 yards, 5.0 yards per carry, 1 TD

Aubrey Quarles -- 6 catches, 57 yards

Montana State

Cody Kempt -- 7/13, 60 yards, 1 TD, 0 INTs

Demetrius Crawford -- 20 carries, 100 yards, 5.0 yards per carry, 1 TD

Brandon Bostick -- 5 catches, 74 yards, 3 TDs

As you can tell, Montana State prefers its ground attack, as it ran the ball more than twice as often as it tossed it against Adams State.  However, the passing game was pretty productive for the Bobcats, totaling three touchdowns on the day.  Keep an eye on Bostick catching passes and Crawford toting the rock.

My guess is that we'll load up on the run and force MSU to try and beat us passing the ball.  The Bobcats are not gifted with a lot of large offensive linemen, so our undersized defensive line should be able to hold its own.  At least, I would hope so, against an FCS opponent.

That's really all I have on MSU.  Check in at Chronicles of a K-State Fan for a little bulletin-board material from Montana and Idaho writers.
