Gary Patterson Says Kansas State Will Be a ‘Tough Task’

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(FORTH WORTH, Texas) -- The sixth-ranked Horned Frogs (7-1) will host seventh-ranked Kansas State (7-1) on Saturday in a Big 12 showdown.

TCU head coach Gary Patterson is preparing his team for a battle against the Cougars.

"They're always good at special teams. Tyler Lockett is averaging almost 20 yards a return on punts. They've been getting up early, especially at home," Patterson said. "We've been playing well at home, but they've been getting after people. They play well against the run. It's definitely a tough task."

Patterson has a lot of respect for K-State head coach Bill Snyder. He's led the team to a 5-0 record in the Big 12.

"He's won big ball games. He's done just about everything. He's one of those guys who thinks about it 24 hours a day," Patterson said. "That's what he loves to do."

Synder knows his team will get all they can handle on Saturday. "They're always going to be a good physical defensive football team," he said. "They're very sound with their special teams."

No. 11 Kansas State Blanks Texas

Ed Zurga/Getty Images(MANHATTAN, KS) -- The Kansas State Wildcats rolled over the Texas Longhorns with a 23-0 victory Saturday.

The Wildcats remain undefeated in Big 12 play and pushed thier overall record to 6-1.

Quarterback Jake Waters threw for 224 yards and trusty receiver Tyler Lockett caught eight passes for 103 yards. Kansas State scored both of their touchdowns on the ground on the legs of DeMarcus Robinson and Charles Jones.

The Longhorns continue to adjust under the new regime of head coach Charlie Strong.  With a now 3-5 record, inconsistency continues to be the bane of Texas football. Quarterback Tyrone Swoopes was 13-25 for only 106 yards.

This was the first time Texas had suffered a shut out since 2004 when they lost to Oaklahoma 12-0.

(14) Kansas State Holds Off (11) Oklahoma

(14) Kansas State Holds Off (11) Oklahoma

Ed Zurga/Getty Images(NORMAN, Okla.) -- A blocked extra point and a pair of missed field goals helped the 14th-ranked Kansas State Wildcats knock off number 11 Oklahoma, 31-30, on Saturday. Sooners kicker Michael Hunnicutt missed a field goal that would have given Oklahoma the lead with less than four minutes to play.

"I feel for Michael," Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops said. "He's been an excellent kicker for us and a great young man. We all love him. I feel that for him, because unfortunately, the kicker, that just kind of sticks out."

"The youngster that missed the field goal, he will go another hundred years without missing another field goal," said Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder. "So we were just lucky. That happens."

The contest went back-and-forth throughout, with the Wildcats (5-1) taking a 21-17 lead into halftime. Hunnicutt's first missed field goal, a 32-yard try that went wide left, came at the end of the first half. Kansas State come out of the locker room and added to their lead, a 27-yard field goal to make it 24-17.

Both squads traded touchdowns in the third quarter, giving Kansas State a 31-24 lead heading into the final period. Oklahoma (5-2) was able to drive the ball and score Trevor Knight touchdown pass to Durron Neal. However, Hunnicutt's extra point was blocked by Travis Britz.

The Sooners eventually got the ball back and reached the Kansas State 1-yard line. After not being able to put the ball in the end zone for the win, Hunnicutt's 19-yard chip shot missed and the Wildcats were able to run out the clock.
