K-State scored a touchdown on a 3-yard Skylar Thompson run following a big punt return by Dominique Heath, and the Wildcat defense forced Cyclones to settle for field goals on the two occasions in which they ventured into the Wildcat red zone.
Both teams have played good defense, although the Cats have made more small mistakes. Iowa State has been penalized a lot. K-State is having trouble running against a Cyclone defense which doesn’t respect the Wildcat receivers.
Iowa State leads K-State in total offense 191-53. That discrepancy is entirely through the air, as the teams are 42-41 on the ground. Iowa State has 8 first downs to K-State’s 2. There is no reason why the Wildcats should be winning, but here we are.
No individual on the K-State offense is personally responsible for more than 24 yards.
So... let’s hope something happens in the second half, because this half has been terrible, score notwithstanding.
