The Drive ep. 8, October 15, 2017

TOPEKA, Kan. (THE DRIVE) Kansas State was waiting to play their game longer than they actually got to play. Four hours worth of rain delays pushed this game back before it even started and then again in the 4th quarter. In the end the Wildcats still fell short with a 26-6 loss to TCU.

Jessie Ertz was injured so Sophomore backup Alex Delton got his first start. He was 11 of 29 for 146 yards, but was struggling to run coach Bill Snyder's complex offense against one of the best defenses in the Big 12.

Delton who is known as a runner only had one rushing play for over 15 10 yards. He has a cannon for an arm but couldn't get anything started in the air game either. Byron Pringle stepped up and had a decent game with two great catches and a TD reception that got overturned.

TCU remains in the top 10 and Kansas State falls to 3-3. TCU will meet Kansas next week while Kansas State prepares for Oklahoma.

Kansas loss yet again by over 40 points, losing to Iowa State 45-0. The Jayhawks had a couple blunders in special teams including dropping a punt return and a high snap over the kickers head. They also had an interception and had to punt 13 times. They were 2 of 17 on third down and never even crossed the 50 yard line until the fourth quarter.

In basketball news, Kansas will play Mizzou at the Sprint Center for a charity exhibition match to raise money for hurricane victims. This will be raising money for a good cause and allow fans to enjoy this classic border war once again.
