The Syracuse Orange decided to try out the Kansas St. Wildcats game plan on their second half-opening drive, running the ball on all seven plays. RB Delone Carter hauled in the seven-yard score to retake the lead, putting himself over 100 yards for the fifth time this season.
Each of Syracuse’s seven runs gained yardage, with the shortest still good for four yards. RB Antwon Bailey also pitched in a 13-yard carry, putting him up to 44 on only five carries.
If K-State’s offense remains in character, this game could really start to pick up the pace. The Wildcats don’t have a very good rushing defense anyway. Cats RB Daniel Thomas must absolutely run wild every day in practice. Thomas is still sitting at 78 yards on the ground today.
K-State’s offense has not remained in character so far on the following drive, throwing on consecutive snaps.
