Kansas State 31, Mississippi State 24: Almost beating yourself

Kansas State, the team which used to beat you despite your team having the physical advantage because they were smarter and had better execution, showed up in Starkville this morning and completely outplayed Mississippi State. They should have won 41-14, in all fairness.

The problem was, K-State wasn’t smarter and made a lot of mistakes, turning what should have been an easy win into a nail-biter. But in the end the Wildcats somehow managed to come out on top, scoring on a 15-yard touchdown pass from Skylar Thompson to Dalton Schoen with 5:37 to play to help secure a 31-24 win at Davis Wade Stadium.
