2. The Most Underrated Thing Was …

Kansas State 21, TCU 14.

While the whole world was transfixed on the phenomenal theater of Oklahoma-Texas and the wild finish of Florida-Texas A&M, Kansas State – a 9.5-point underdog – went to TCU without its starting quarterback able to go and pitched a gem.

Freshman QB Will Howard did what he needed to in place of an injured Skylar Thompson, running for a game-high 86 yards with a touchdown to make up for his mediocre passing. The defense held time after time after time, the game was mucked up a bit tempo-wise, and boom – K-State is now 3-1.

Not only is it 3-1, it’s 3-1 with the road trip to Oklahoma out of the way with a win.

Going to Iowa State will be an interesting showdown, and West Virginia is no pushover on the road, but the Oklahoma State and Texas games are in Manhattan, and there’s still the Kansas free-space to enjoy.

It’s highly unlikely that the Wildcats will get through the rest of the regular season without a Big 12 blemish, but it can handle one and still make its way into the Big 12 championship, depending on where that is.

But this team is finding ways to win after collapsing late against Arkansas State in the opener.
