Kansas State’s Felix Anudike-Uzomah ties NCAA mark with 6 sacks

·2 min read

Kansas State’s Felix Anudike-Uzomah spent more time in TCU’s backfield Saturday than most of the Horned Frog running backs.

The 6-foot-3, 255-pound sophomore defensive end had a season in a game for the Wildcats.

He notched six sacks and forced two fumbles in TCU’s 31-12 Big 12 victory over Kansas State.

There was a balance to his effort as Anudike-Uzomah had three sacks in each half.

In case you were wondering whose mark he tied:

FBS: 6 – Ameer Ismail, Western Michigan vs. Ball State, Oct. 21, 2006; Elvis Dumervil, Louisville vs. Kentucky, Sep. 4, 2005

FCS: 6 – Damien Huren, Southeastern Louisiana vs. Northern Colorado, Oct. 9, 2004; Pat Dowd, University of Dayton vs. Drake University, Nov. 9, 2013

So, who is this edge-rushing force?
