GOOD: RUN GAME

Despite the run game not being AS electric as it had been, it was still pretty damn good in this one. It’s sad when you consider that 218 yards rushing isn’t considered “as electric”, but that’s just how fantastic this K-State running game has been in 2016.

The Wildcats racked up 218 yards on the ground against A&M, with Justin Silmon leading the way on ten carries for 77 yards.

Ertz led the run game in touchdowns with two and Dominique Heath, who’s a wide receiver, had a huge jet sweep for a 52-yard score. That score was yet another big time play for the offense.

I would have liked to have seen Charles Jones shine more in his final collegiate game, but he only had five carries for 19 yards. Hopefully Jones gets a shot somewhere in the pros because he gave this school a lot in his few years there.

Overall though, nicely done by the K-State rushing attack, who showed that 2017 is still going to be tough on opposing run defenses.
