After struggling on offense in the first half the Wildcats scored 21 points in the third quarter to take a 41-17 lead over Texas Tech. Collin Klein threw a gorgeous touchdown pass to Tramaine Thompson and rushed for the other two touchdowns in that third quarter.
Kansas State's defense put together an incredible effort in the second half. First Randall Evans recovered a Texas Tech fumble to set up Klein's first rushing touchdown. Then Arthur Brown returned an interception 37 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter.. Brown's pick-6 made it 48-17 Kansas State.
Klein finished the game 19 of 26 passing for 233 yards and 2 touchdowns. Klein also rushed for 2 touchdowns. Kansas State was actually outgained by two yards in this game but still ended up winning by 31 points.
