Geno Smith’s Heisman Trophy stock is dropping. Collin Klein’s stock is soaring to front runner status for the stiff-arm pose.Klein and his Kansas State Wildcats dominated West Virginia at Morgantown 55-14 and the game didn’t seem that close.
Klein was damn near perfect, 19-21 passing for a career high 323 yards, ran for four touchdowns and threw for 3 touchdowns.The K-State quarterback clearly won the head to head battle with former Heisman front runner Geno Smith who threw for 143 yards and one touchdown however tossed his first two interceptions of the season.
"He doesn’t do anything wrong.” West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen said. He is the same guy we saw on film. He is exactly the same guy we thought he would be.”Which is a damn good football player and Kansas State is exactly who WVU thought they were, a BCS Championship Game contender.
Here’s the highlights from a stunned Morgantown, WV (Thanks Fox Sports)
K-State has put themselves in the conversation with Alabama and Oregon as the top three contenders for the BCS National Championship Game.The Wildcats own three Big 12 Conference wins on the road, at Oklahoma, at Iowa State (and the Cyclones aren’t bad either.) and now a domination of West Virginia.
The Wildcats final five games are first a pair of home games vs Texas Tech and Oklahoma State then road trips to TCU and then to Waco, Texas to play the Baylor Bears before finishing the season hosting Texas at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. It’s just seems very odd for K-State and Texas to finish the season (ramifications of realignment.)I’m just wondering how many are now jumping on the K-State bandwagon. I’m there now.
