Stat of the Game

Four. That was the number of times Kansas State quarterback Josh Freeman turned the ball over Saturday: three interceptions and a fumble at the goal line. Freeman, who entered the game with just five interceptions on the year, has now turned the ball over 13 times in three career games against the Jayhawks.

The game was over when...

Kansas running back Jake Sharp scored his third touchdown of the first quarter. After struggling much of the season to get things going early, the Jayhawks scored on their first five possessions Saturday.

Unsung hero

Jeff Spikes. The red-shirt freshman right tackle has taken his lumps this season, but Saturday he helped propel the Jayhawks' biggest ground game since 2001. Many of Sharp's runs were to the right side, and Spikes ensured there were holes to hit throughout the afternoon.

We will know if it is the O-line coming together this season or the level of competition in the next couple of weeks. I believe they are really starting to hit their stride. Hard to tell the past two weeks when we kept going away from them against tough competition.
