Last Saturday, K-State took the field for the first time this season and took full charge over their first opponent Stephen F. Austin by a score of 55-16. With new faces starting to rise and of course veteran players such as Jake Waters looking to improve from his junior season; the Cats did a little bit of everything.
Now the focus shifts to Iowa State in K-State’s first Big 12 game. Before I get into the week two matchup in a few days, here are some of the numbers from the game in Manhattan to tide you over:
Game 1: Kansas State 55 Stephen F. Austin 16
2: The number of sacks that True Freshman linebacker Elijah Lee on Saturday. Lee made an immediate impact early on the first couple minutes of the game.
55: The yards from the sophomore starting running back Charles Jones. Jones shared carries with DeMarcus Robinson, but definitely had a decent night. Jones reached the end zone twice in his first career start.
3: Catches from junior wide receiver Kody Cook. Cook found the end zone in the third quarter from Jake Waters. Cook ended up with 44 yards on the night.
1: Star wide out Tyler Lockett only had one catch and that one was for a touchdown. Lockett would not see the field after that. Head coach Bill Snyder was being careful in protecting his number one receiver.
2: Kicker Jack Cantele made his first appearance since last year going 2 for 3 kicking field goals. Wildcats will need him to stay healthy.
5: The leading tackler from the defensive against the Lumberjacks was Randall Evans. Evans was a factor all evening for K-State.
