MANHATTAN, Kan. —
The Wildcats (7-0, 4-0 Big 12), who also boast a road win over No. 8 Oklahoma, rose to No. 3 in the latest BCS standings on the strength of their win in Morgantown last Saturday.
Of course, Texas Tech (6-1, 3-1) handled the Mountaineers just as easily.
The Red Raiders rolled to a 49-14 win two weeks ago, when West Virginia was still unbeaten, in some ways drawing up a blueprint for Kansas State. Texas Tech followed that up with a thrilling, triple-overtime victory over TCU last Saturday to make two straight wins over Top 25 teams.
“They throw it, they catch it, they have an extremely talented quarterback, as good of wide receivers as there are anywhere in the country, some returning guys. They’re just very successful at what they do,” Snyder said. “They execute extremely well.”
That quarterback is Seth Doege, the Red Raiders’ own Heisman Trophy candidate.
After throwing three interceptions in a loss to Oklahoma, the senior has been phenomenal over the past couple of weeks. He threw for 499 yards and six touchdowns against the Mountaineers, and then had 318 yards passing and seven touchdowns last week against the Horned Frogs.
