The future is here?

Kansas State won its first road game of the 2023 season last night, beating Texas Tech 38-21, literally running over the Red Raiders in the process. A Jon Morse’s recap notes, the game went from cringefest to rout thanks to a key change in personnel.

Freshman phenom Avery Johnson finally had his number called, and he did not disappoint. His 5 rushing scores in the game are the most in FBS this season and matched the school record, his name now listed alongside Collin Klein and Jonathan Beasley.

Johnson is a speedy (OMG, he’s SO fast) and athletic runner who seems to be able to find the gaps when needed and provided the Wildcats’ stalled out offense with a much-needed spark.
