When the Wildcats produced 41 yards rushing in a season-opening loss to North Dakota State, it was time to regain their focus. And the result has been 479 yards rushing in a pair of wins, including 329 yards against Massachusetts last week.

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) _ Running for 41 yards on 23 carries wasn't going to cut it in Bill Snyder's offense.

After all, running the ball has been a cornerstone at Kansas State ever since Snyder arrived on campus in the late 1980s. The school has produced standouts such as Darren Sproles and Daniel Thomas, and last year had one of the nation's top rushing quarterbacks in Collin Klein.

So when the Wildcats produced 41 yards rushing in a season-opening loss to North Dakota State, it was time to regain their focus. And the result has been 479 yards rushing in a pair of wins, including 329 yards against Massachusetts last week.

The Wildcats hope to keep it going this coming Saturday night at Texas.
