K-State Slate: 9.17.12

K-State Football

It was a lot like the Missouri State game. K-State held only a slim lead late in the game against a seemingly overmatched opponent, only to pile on a few scores late and make the score look better than most of the game would have indicated.

The game was the renewal of a friendly rivalry between K-State's Bill Snyder and former Iowa State coach Dan McCarney.

Snyder was probably friendlier with McCarney after the game than he was with his own players. The old man was unusually harsh in criticizing his players' preparation for the UNT game, including the "sucking our thumbs" quote, which seems destined to make the rounds this week.

K-State Volleyball

Given the level of competition, some wondered if K-State's hot start was a mirage. But the Wildcats proved otherwise with a sweep this weekend in winning the Tulsa Invitational, knocking off No. 10 Minnesota and No. 20 Dayton in the process. Conference play begins this week with a trip to Oklahoma on Wednesday.

Around the Big 12

TCU got a less-than-impressive 20-6 win over KU to open Big 12 play ... despite an injury to quarterback Wes Lunt, Oklahoma State rolled to a 65-24 win over Louisiana-Lafayette ... West Virginia beat up on James Madison for a 42-14 win at FedEx Field ... Baylor trailed 20-10 at halftime and was still behind deep into the third quarter, but pulled away late for a 48-23 win over Sam Houston State ... is Texas Tech for real? The Red Raiders moved to 3-0 with a blowout 49-14 win over New Mexico ... Iowa State got an easy 37-3 win against a really bad Western Illinois team ... and is the Texas offense coming of age? David Ash shone in a 66-31 win against Ole Miss in Oxford.
