Collin Klein getting it done again for 'Cats
By David Ubben
Kansas State went with the more mobile Collin Klein over senior Carson Coffman, and it's paying off early, with a pair of running touchdowns for Klein, a former receiver.
Both touchdowns were from just a yard out, and Kansas State leads, 14-3.
Klein's first came on Kansas State's first play, thanks to a 41-yard punt return by Ty Zimmerman, but he engineered a great second drive for his second sneak.
That drive included a 40-yard completion to Travis Tannahill, a good sign for the young quarterback who beat out Coffman, known more as a pure passer versus Klein's athleticism.
He also broke a 15-yard run on the drive. Inserting Klein into the lineup meant instant offense against Texas and Missouri the past two weeks, and the same looks like it's happening today.
