An outcome that no one was expecting around the Big 12 football landscape is starting to take shape in Manhattan, KS, on Oct. 29 with the No. 22 ranked Kansas State Wildcats absolutely demolishing the No. 9 ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys.

A game that had big implications for the Big 12 Championship Game picture is falling heavily in the direction of head coach Chris Klieman and the Wildcats. At halftime, Kansas State was up on head coach Mike Gundy and the Pokes by a commanding score of 35-0.

Despite an injury to its starting quarterback, Kansas State saw junior Will Howard completely take over this game. The same could be said for star junior running back Deuce Vaughn, who already has more than 150 total yards and two scores early in the third quarter.

Meanwhile, Howard mustered a whopping four passing touchdowns and more than 200 passing yards in the first half alone.

Howard and the Wildcats are doing a great job of making senior quarterback Spencer Sanders and the Pokes look like a measly opponent. Kansas State is also making a statement to the rest of the Big 12 that this team is going to play a massive role in the outcome of this conference title.

Howard is on a record-setting pace for the Kansas State offense in this game. If he gets one more passing touchdown, he would have the most passing touchdowns in a single game for the Wildcats going back more than 30 years.
