The Drive ep. 11, November 5, 2017

TOPEKA, Kan. (THE DRIVE) K-State started with the lead and was keeping up with Texas Tech, but right before the first half ended Delton got hit in the head for the second week in a row. He was pulled out and third string quarterback, freshman Skylar Thompson went into the game.

Texas Tech took a big lead in the 3rd quarter, but thanks to a pick-six from Duke Shelly and a missed field goal, K-State was able to make a come back. Thompson had a big throw to Schoen to set up a touchdown with 42 seconds left. The Wildcats needed the 2-point conversion to tie, and with another pass to Schoen, the Cats scored.

In overtime K-State scored first with a pass to Pringle, while Texas Tech could not answer, sending their last throw out of the end zone. Kansas State won 42-35 and Thompson ended with 96 passing yards in the half he played.

Kansas did not have as good of luck this week. Baylor, who had also been struggling all year and seemed like KU's best shot at a win, came in and pounded Kansas winning 38-9.

Carter Stanley got to start again after his good performance against Kansas State. However he would come up short with 17 of 33 for 155 yards and an interception.

Baylor quarterback Charlie Brewer threw for 315 yards and three touchdowns in his first career start.

Could this be trouble for David Beaty and his time at KU? Kansas plays Texas next week and is a 31 point underdog.

Next week will have a lot of effect on the standings in the Big 12 with Oklahoma playing TCU and Oklahoma State playing Iowa State.
