HALFTIME: K-State 42, FAU 0 - penalties, turnovers, and MANBALL

It’s hard to argue with the results so far, but, umm, Bill’s probably mad.

We’re going to keep this brief, but a near pick-six and a couple of Florida Atlantic turnovers have helped stake the Wildcats to a ridiculous 42-0 lead at the half. To put this in perspective, K-State’s final five scoring drives of the half lasted a COMBINED 2:46. Three of them were one-play drives.

It’s been a certified feline mauling of the helpless birds of prey.

The last five of the six Wildcat touchdowns have been on the ground, two by Jesse Ertz and four — one short of K-State’s single game record already — by fullback Winston Dimel, two of those on direct snaps.

K-State already has 207 yards on the ground, with four runners already over 35 yards on the day yet none over 55. Everyone’s getting their shot. Jesse Ertz is 7-11 for 105 yards, starting with a 20-yard TD to Dominique Heath and finally connecting with Byron Pringle for a 36-yard strike which set up the final touchdown of the half.

Florida Atlantic has 76 yards of total offense. K-State has — no, wait for it — 10 penalties for 106 yards.

You know Bill’s chewing their asses, despite being up by 42.

On to the second half!
