MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State's defense gave up big plays, its offense struggled to consistently move the ball and its special teams made more mistakes in one game Saturday than they often do in an entire season.
The Wildcats were still good enough to beat Kansas.
MANHATTAN, Kansas (AP) — For the last eight to nine months, Skylar Thompson has had to hear about the ongoing debate about who will be the starting quarterback for Kansas State. It may have taken longer than he or any Kansas State supporters may have wanted but after Saturday, Kansas State has their guy.
Thompson threw for two scores and ran for another and Kansas State ran away from UTSA 41-17 on Saturday.
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Skylar Thompson and Alex Delton spent an entire season, then a full offseason, pitching a back-and-forth battle for the starting quarterback job at Kansas State.
All along, Bill Snyder said he would play both of them.
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State coach Bill Snyder probably felt pretty good about having two quarterbacks with starting experience this year, especially the way both performed at times last season.
After Skylar Thompson and Alex Delton both struggled against South Dakota, though, that confidence is a bit shakier heading into Saturday's showdown with No. 18 Mississippi State.
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Bill Snyder thought he knew who had won the tightly contested race between Skylar Thompson and Alex Delton to start at quarterback when Kansas State opens the season against South Dakota.
Then the 78-year-old coach watched another practice, and the same nip-and-tuck competition that Thompson and Delton waged all last season — and resulted in both of them playing plenty of snaps all the way through their bowl game — was back to all-square.
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Bill Snyder's record as a head coach is marvelous when he has a returning quarterback with big-game experience, and that should bode especially well for Kansas State this season.
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State coach Bill Snyder wanted to see his offense operating at a tidy clip when his team split into purple and white squads for its spring game.
The 78-year-old coach got what he was looking for in a showdown between quarterbacks Alex Delton and Skylar Thompson on a rainy Saturday, with the purple squad winning 31-28.
Delton wound up 21 of 28 for 201 yards and three touchdowns, and ran six times for 34 yards. Thompson was 13 of 19 for 149 yards and a TD.
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State returns 14 starters from a team that won eight games and beat UCLA in the Cactus Bowl, including its top quarterback and the entire offensive line, so it stands to reason that few jobs would be available in spring camp.
PHOENIX (AP) — Bill Snyder stood on a makeshift stage in the middle of a baseball stadium with a roof, a sparkling trophy at his side depicting a football sailing through cactus uprights.
If this was the end of his storied coaching career at Kansas State, it sure was a great way to go out.
Alex Delton ran for 158 yards and accounted for four touchdowns, leading the Wildcats to a 35-17 Cactus Bowl victory over UCLA on Tuesday night in what could be Snyder's final game.
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Iowa State and Kansas State have each played more quarterbacks this season than most coaches would want in a decade, a combination of injuries and circumstances leading to unprecedented upheaval.
The Cyclones lost starter Jacob Park to some personal issues after four games, then got six games out of backup Kyle Kempt. He went down with an injury last week at Baylor, forcing Zeb Noland into the game, while QB-turned-linebacker Joel Lanning has taken snaps under center.
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State quarterback Jesse Ertz will need surgery on his ailing knee and miss the remainder of the season, while backup Alex Delton remains sidelined after sustaining two concussions.
Wildcats coach Bill Snyder said it's possible Delton could return for a bowl game.
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Alex Delton was thrust into a difficult situation last weekend at Texas, taking over for injured Kansas State quarterback Jesse Ertz in a nip-and-tuck game on the road against Texas.
His first career start won't be a whole lot easier.
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Jesse Ertz is exactly where he started last season for Kansas State.
He hopes the similarities end there.
The junior quarterback won a three-way competition for the starting job against No. 8 Stanford on Friday night, resuming the role he had for two plays last season. Ertz hurt his knee in the opener against South Dakota, then managed one more snap before his year was over.
