Senior Day didn’t go off as planned as the Kansas State Wildcats (6-5, 4-4) fell 41-31 to the Oklahoma Sooners (9-2, 6-2) Saturday afternoon in Manhattan.
While you remember the fact that Kansas State is still bowl eligible, here is…
TYLER LOCKETT: The junior wide out quite literally had a career day. Tyler Lockett grabbed 12 passes for 278 yards, breaking his own school record. He also scored 3 touchdowns, all in the second quarter, including a 90-yard catch-and-run for a score. Lockett averaged 23.2 yards a catch on his incredible day.
It will be very exciting to see what Lockett can accomplish next year during his senior season.
JAKE WATERS: The Wildcat quarterback knows to whom to deliver the ball. he completed 12 of his 17 passes to Tyler Lockett, and three more to the other top wide receiver Tramaine Thompson. Waters had 348 yards passing while completing 58.6% of his passes, and he connected on the three touchdowns to Lockett.
Waters looked good in delivering the ball most of the day.
FEW PENALTIES: Kansas State drew just 4 flags for only 24 yards on the day. It is this kind of discipline for which Bill Snyder teams are known.
KICK RETURNS: Or rather Tyler Lockett, Part 2. Lockett returned 5 kicks for 162 yards, a 32.4 yards average. Lockett finished the day with 440 total yards between his receptions and kick returns.
