The second meeting between Kansas State and Kansas in which both teams were ranked, and the first since 1995, was a horrible display of football which should be forgotten as soon as is humanly possible. But thanks to K-State being better able to survive its mistakes, the Wildcats escaped Lawrence with a 31-27 win at Memorial Stadium.

It started great for the Cats, however.

Will Howard opened the game with a 46-yard pass to Jayce Brown, and after DJ Giddens ran for another 18 on the second play, Howard found Ben Sinnott for an 11-yard touchdown pass to put the Cats up with only a minute-ten off the clock.
