The Postgame: Wildcats Win 5th Straight Sunflower Showdown


Score: Kansas State 31, Kansas 10

It was over when: K-State took a 21-0 lead 10 seconds into the second quarter to essentially end the game.

Player of the Game: John Hubert rushed for 220 yards and touchdown, and averaged 7.3 yards per carry.

Fun Fact: KU’s six turnovers were the most they’ve had in a game in 10 years.



1. Turnovers

K-State forced six turnovers, including four-straight to start the second half. Kansas was never able to get back into the game as a result.

2. John Hubert

220 yards? 7.3 yards per carry? Damn.

3. Secondary

Kansas completed only 47% of their passes for 151 yards and four interceptions. While KU certainly does not have a great passing game – or really any passing game – it doesn’t take away from how well the Wildcats played in the secondary.



1. Jake Waters

Waters competed less than half of his passes for 160 yards. He was only able to connect with Tyler Lockett and Tramaine Thompson for six completions for 70 yards. Kansas has a better defense than they are given credit for, but this was a very weak performance from Waters.

2. Penalties

Eight penalties for 80 yards is not going to settle well with Snyder.

3. 1st and 42

A false start, personal foul, and pass interference led to the situation you see above. It ended with an interception by Isaiah Johnson.
