    Nelson highlights Cats in Week 5

    The Green Bay Packers only had to throw to Jordy Nelson once in their demolishing win over the Minnesota Vikings last Thursday. Nelson caught one pass for 66 yards and a touchdown in the 42-10 win, and didn’t have to do much work for his

    Sexton established as No. 2 receiver

    Make no mistake, Kansas State All-America receiver Tyler Lockett is quarterback Jake Waters’ No. 1 target. Since his arrival from Iowa Western Community College in 2013, Waters has had a special chemistry with Lockett, who has established himself as one of K-State’s all-time best receivers, if
