    Jellison: Wildcats could run all over reeling Longhorns, Brown

    Cut047joel.phatch

    Mack Brown’s team is in trouble. Through three games this season, Brown’s Texas Longhorns have allowed more than 300 rushing yards per game, ranking 121st out of 123 teams nationally. And what a coincidence, the Longhorns (1-2) have to face Kansas State on Saturday — a

    Rose waited a long time for first TD

    No 5 td run.phatch

    Robert Rose took a handoff up the middle, then cut back to his left before going untouched for a 26-yard touchdown against Massachusetts Saturday night. Though big at the time, it’s probably not a moment that will find its way onto a highlight reel

    If history truly does repeat itself, then Mack Brown may be without a job very soon. The longtime Texas football coach is struggling these days to explain away the Longhorns’ two straight losses they’ll carry into Saturday’s game against Kansas State in Austin.

    Nelson has two TDs in Packers’ win

    Former Kansas State receiver Jordy Nelson is off to a hot start for the Green Packers. The Riley native caught two more touchdowns Sunday, giving him three already this season. The former All-American caught three passes for 66 yards overall, helping the Packers beat the Washington

    Guggisberg: Defense still lacking consistency

    Grant.phatch

    If the loss to North Dakota State alarmed some fans two weeks ago, Saturday night’s 37-7 win over lowly UMass should put them in full-on crisis mode. Let’s start with the obvious. This defense can’t stop anybody — not for four quarters, anyway.

    If Kansas State was looking for a confidence boost before opening Big 12 play next week, the Wildcats found it against Massachusetts Saturday night. The Wildcats survived a sluggish start to the game and then cruised to a blowout 37-7 victory at Bill Snyder Family Stadium.

    Kansas State coach Bill Snyder always seems to have a plan for everything. He has Plan A, Plan B and Plan C, and then probably 100 more after that, preparing for every possible scenario that could conceivably take place. Yet, jokingly, he said this week that

    Cats taking Minutemen seriously

    It doesn’t matter how many times you ask him, or in what way you phrase the question. Bill Snyder doesn’t overlook opposing football teams. K-State could be playing Manhattan High on Saturday, and Snyder would still rattle off several reasons why the Wildcats

    Like K-State, UMass has its own QB carousel

    Kansas State might be rolling with a two quarterback system, but Massachusetts is still trying to figure out which guy is its best option going forward. Although returning starter Mike Wegzyn was named the Minutemen’s starter before the season, backup AJ Doyle has seen

    While Kansas State’s special teams have been exactly that at times already this season, there have also been a couple hiccups along the way as well. But one of the more consistent performers so far for the Wildcats has been new kicker Jack Cantele.
