Kansas State 21, TCU 14: Oh, the defense

A wild final drive by TCU ended with a hail mary batted down in the end zone as Kansas State came away with a 21-14 win in yet another crazy final-play game between two friendly rivals at Amon G. Carter Stadium in Fort Worth.

The win improved the Cats to 3-1 (3-0 Big 12), while TCU falls to 1-2 (1-2). It also evened the all-time series between the two schools at seven wins apiece, and gives K-State a 5-4 advantage since TCU joined the Big 12.

The big story for K-State was the smothering defense, which forced TCU to punt seven times, five of which followed a complete failure to gain a first down.
