The Drive ep. 34, September 30, 2018

By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (THE DRIVE) K-State started the game with Alex Delton and went into halftime losing 19-0. After the half Skylar Thompson came in and the Wildcats closed the gap to 19-14 but could not catch Texas.

The Texas defense got a couple of sacks and even a safety against the Wildcat offense. K-State just couldn't come up with yards, a single player for Texas had more yards than K-State combined in the first half.

The Wildcats switched quarterbacks at halftime and Thompson promptly led them 82 yards on their opening possession, capping the drive by keeping it on third-and-goal for a 7-yard touchdown run.

K-State plays Baylor next.

Kansas turned to Carter Stanley for his first start under center all year, benching Peyton Bender who had previously started all four games. Stanley responded well, throwing for 247 yards on 24-of-32 passing and three touchdowns.

Even with a good performance it was not enough to stop Oklahoma State. Taylor Cornelius passed for 312 yards and four touchdowns, Justice Hill ran for 189 yards and Oklahoma State cruised to a 48-28 victory over Kansas on Saturday.

True freshman Pooka Williams shined once again, picking up 97 yards rushing and 60 yards in the passing game.

Kansas goes on the road to West Virginia next week.
