Meet the new champ, same as the old champ. Kansas State beat Kansas 38-10 to take the Governor’s Cup for the 11th consecutive time. That equals Kansas State’s longest streak in this series.

This win made Chris Klieman the first Kansas State head coach to win his inaugural game against Kansas since Stan Parrish accomplished the feat way back in 1986. Klieman is now one of just seven coaches in school history to win the big rivalry game on his first try. Of course, Klieman’s Wildcats are already well ahead of Parrish’s first batch, because yesterday’s win also secured bowl eligibility for Kansas State (Nathan Enserro, K-State Collegian).
