1st & 10 at the NDSU 2. Ojuri with a HUGE run up the middle--all the way to the KSU 32. 66 yard run.
1st & 10 at the KSU 33. 19 yard reception for the Wildcats with Waters back in at QB.
1st & 10 at the NDSU 47. Pass incomplete to Hubert.
2nd & 10 at the NDSU 47. Pass thrown away with the Bison getting some pressure.
3rd & 10 at the NDSU 47. Pressure again by the Bison and Waters can't complete the rushed throw.
4th & 10 at the NDSU 47. Punt by Mark Krause. KSU downs the perfect punt at the NDSU 2.
The Bison kickoff is again a short one returned to the KSU 33.
Perfect drive by the Bison when they needed to have it there. Now let's see if the NDSU defense can stop K-State. We will see which QB the Wildcats will go with. The passing game has been good by Waters for the most part but Sams had the good run for the last Wildcat score.
1st & 10 at the KSU 30. Crockett up the middle for 6 yards.
2nd & 4 at the KSU 24. Pass complete to Andrew Bonnnet for 15 and a first and goal.
1st & goal at the KSU 9. Jensen hits Vaadeland for the TD of 9 yards.
PAT is good.
K-State 21 NDSU 14 with 3:43 left in the third qtr.
The ruling on the field stands.
1st & 10 at the KSU 41. Crockett up the middle for three. KSU's Travis Britz is hurt on the play and looks like an ankle injury.
2nd & 7 at the KSU 38. false start on NDSU.
2nd & 12 at the KSU 43. Smith with the catch across the middle for 13 and a Bison first down.
1st & 10 at the NDSU 49. Crockett for a three yard gain up the middle.
2nd & 7 at the KSU 48. Wahlo with the catch for a 4 yard gain.
3rd & 3 at the KSU 44. Smith with a nice diving catch but is a 1/2 yard short.
4th & 1/2 at the KSU 41. Jensen narrowly make the first down on a keeper after a measurement. It will be reviewed by the TV officials.
1st & 10 at the NDSU 25. Jensen keeps on a qb for just a yard.
2nd & 9 at the NDSU 26. Crockett up the middle for 4.
3rd & 5 at the NDSU 30. Smith with the catch across the middle and runs out to the NDSU 49.
NDSU's downs the kickoff and will have it at their own 25.
Perfect time for K-State to bring in Sams at QB. This defenitely puts some desperation for the NDSU offense. Let's see what they can do on this drive. I think the Bison need to go back to Crockett and run the ball despite being down now two touchdowns.
3rd & 3 at the NDSU 17. Daniel Sams is the K-State QB and he keeps the ball for the Wildcat TD from 17 yards out.
PAT is good.
K-State 21 NDSU 7 with 9:58 left in the third qtr.
1st & 10 at the NDSU 36. No gain on the run by Hubert.
2nd & 10. Locket with a catch for 7.
3rd & 3 at the NDSU 29. Sexton with a 5 yard catch.
1st & 10 at the NDSU 24. Zach Trujillo with the catch for 9.
2nd & 1 at the NDSU 15. Hubert with the sweep for a loss of two.
3rd & 3 at the NDSU 17. Time out K-State.
Huge third down play here for the Bison. They need to hold to just a FG attempt in my opinion.
1st & 10 at the KSU 31. Ojuri for no gain on the run.
2nd & 10 at the KSU 31. Jensen with a bad decision and is intercepted by Dante Barnett. Not sure what Jensen was seeing there.
KSU takes over at the NDSU 36. HUGE TURNOVER THERE.
Williams makes up a little bit on the kickoff and returns it 30 yards to the NDSU 31.
Bad play by Marcus Williams on this pass play. He bit on the fake by Waters and left Lockett wide open.
1st & 10 at the KSU 30. 7 yard catch by Thompson.
2nd & 3 at the KSU 37. Thompson with another catch for another 7.
1st & 10 at the KSU 44. Huge play to Tyler Lockett for 56 yard and a K State TD.
PAT is good.
K-State 14 NDSU 7 with 13:59 left in the third qtr.
NDSU kicks off another squib kick and KSU fields to the KSU 30.
I think NDSU has a pretty good shot to win this one but as mentioned, this first drive will be key to both teams. I am ready for this second half to start.
This is about what I thought this game would go with a rather defensive struggle.
KSU leads the halftime stats with a total of 167 yards to NDSU's 148. NDSU leads the turnover battle with a +1 and should have the lead on this one but missed the Keller FG.
KSU gets the ball to start the second half. That first drive, I think, will be key to rest of the game.
1st & 10 at the NDSU 33. Vaadeland with a 5 yard catch.
2nd & 5 at the NDSU 38. Smith can't come up with the catch.
3rd & 5 at the NDSU 38. Ojuri gets 38 yards but the clock runs out on the first half.
HALFTIME: Kansas State 7 North Dakota State 7.
