K-State gets blueprint for beating West Virginia
Question of the Day
But the Mountaineers haven’t faced anyone like the Wildcats’ Collin Klein, either.
The run-first battering ram has rushed for 510 yards and 10 touchdowns this season, and that comes on the heels of a breakout year in which he piled up 1,141 yards and 27 TDs on the ground.
Klein’s also shown some newfound ability to get the ball downfield through the air, too, throwing for 1,074 yards and seven touchdowns against just two interceptions this season. Klein’s completion percentage of 66.9 is nearly 10 percent better than last season.
“You watch him on tape and you go, `We have to stop the run,’” Holgorsen said. “We’ll work hard on trying to stop the run, and you want to make them pass. You look at him back there throwing the ball, it doesn’t look very good, but it goes exactly where you want it to go.”
West Virginia is allowing more than 37 points per game and has the nation’s eighth-worst defense in big part because it has the third-worst pass defense in major college football, allowing nearly 400 yards per game.
“There are a lot of great offenses out there that they’ve played,” Klein said, when asked why the Mountaineers’ pass defense has been so porous. “Who knows exactly what the reasons are, but we just have to focus on putting together our plan and executing it on Saturday.”
You can bet that means taking a close look at what Texas Tech did so well.
“They’re in a little different spot than they expected to be going into this ballgame,” Klein admitted, “but we know we’re going to get their best shot regardless.”
