Wildcats win Sunflower Showdown, dismantle Jayhawks


Despite a slow start in the first half, the Wildcats continued their winning ways on Saturday after completing a 56-16 blowout victory over the Kansas Jayhawks at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. 
The Jayhaws appeared to steal the momentum at the end of the first half after holding the WIldcats out of the end zone, containing K-State to a manageable one touchdown lead going into halftime.

Running back John Hubert and the Wildcats had other plans though, outscoring KU 35-2 in the second half to seal the victory. Hubert was a key player, finishing with 101 yards and four touchdowns on a 10.1 yards per carry average.

Despite not having eye-popping numbers through the air, quarterback Collin Klein stayed in the Heisman race by finishing the game with 245 total yards and four total touchdowns.

On the other side of the ball, cornerback Nigel Malone had a big game for the Wildcats, highlighted by an interception and return of 55 yards.

The win keeps K-State undefeated; the Wildcats will be back in action next Saturday afternoon in Ames, Iowa to take on the Iowa State Cyclones.
