While you were watching LSU-Alabama, and maybe clicking over to catch USC-Oregon, Kansas State was having perhaps the most impressive night of any of the top four BCS Championship Game contenders.
Notre Dame was taken to the wire by Pitt. Alabama played a tough game against LSU. Oregon scored a ton against USC, but gave up a ton, too.
Kansas State just kept rolling along, solidifying its No. 2 spot in the BCS standings. Oklahoma State is not a bad team, but the Wildcats were clearly the dominant squad in their 44-30 win.
Quarterback Collin Klein kept rolling along too, toward a trip to New York for the Heisman Trophy ceremony. He scored his 50th career rushing touchdown in the win. He completed 16 of 22 passes for 244 yards, and rushed for 65 more. Klein was knocked out of the game in the second half with what appeared to be an arm injury, though he didn't appear to be in significant pain on the bench and coach Bill Snyder declined to talk about it. Hopefully keeping him on the bench was just a precautionary measure in a blowout win. The final score probably ended up being a little closer than it would have had Klein stayed in the game.
While Klein was leading the offense up and down the field, Kansas State's defense did what it always does -- force turnovers. Oklahoma State's Wes Lunt threw three interceptions, including one that was returned for a touchdown.
Kansas State has some tricky games remaining. The Wildcats play at TCU next week, at Baylor on Nov. 17 and against Texas to finish the regular season. Those games won't be easy, but Kansas State has shown it is capable of winning them all. As long as Klein is healthy.
