The Drive ep. 18, December 31, 2017

TOPEKA, Kan. (THE DRIVE) Even though Skylar Thompson started the night at QB for the Wildcats, Delton would come in late in the first quarter and stay in the rest of the game. Even with two concussions this season, Alex Delton ran for 158 yards, including one 68 yard for a touchdown, and had four touchdowns total. This lead to K-State beating UCLA 35-17.

The Wildcats rushed for 345 yards, with Alex Barnes getting 117 himself. They struggled a little in the first half but shut down UCLA in the second half.

Bill Snyder has yet to announce whether he will stay for another season or retire now that this season is over.

K-State basketball started Big 12 play with a big win of 91-75 against Iowa State. Dean Wade had a career high 34 points. Brown and Stokes also had big games, dominating from the 3-point line.

This was a good start for the Wildcats, to pick up a road win in a conference that will have fierce competition this season.

Kansas also started Big 12 play out with a win, beating Texas 92-86. KU continues to do well at 3-pointers with players like Graham, Svi and Vick, but are really needing up in the paint. Azubuike is doing well but Kansas could really use Preston or De Sousa to help out.

Texas Freshman Mohamed Bamba led Texas with 22 points, 15 rebounds and eight blocks. Higher stats then KU likes to see in their competition.

This was a road win and puts KU at the top for the start of Big 12 conference play. Kansas hosts No. 22 Texas Tech on Tuesday night. Texas Tech just had a dominating performance against Baylor and will be a tough opponent.
