K-STATE 18, OKLAHOMA STATE 7
MANHATTAN – The season was still quite young. Just one game into Big Eight play, in fact. Yet Kansas State players could not help but celebrate.
“We’re in first place,’’ shouted defensive tackle Chester Jeffery as the Wildcats filed into their locker room following an 18-7 victory against Oklahoma State in KSU Stadium.
To fill in some details, the win in the league opener enabled K-State to share first with Nebraska, Oklahoma and Colorado.
