Missouri Vs. Kansas State Score: Wildcats Lead The Tigers In Defensive Struggle

Who said the Big 12 can't play defense? There's plenty of it being played in the showdown between Missouri and Kansas State; whether there's much in the way of offense is another matter entirely, with the Wildcats taking a 10-3 lead.

Neither team is exactly tearing up the field. Only Missouri hit the 150-yard mark -- and not by much -- in the first half, and Kansas State scored its sole touchdown after a James Franklin interception set up a 21-yard drive. Quarterback Collin Klein, who cashed in with a two-yard run, leads the Wildcats in all-purpose yards with 29. He's 7-of-9 for 49 yards passing.

Franklin has recovered since the pick; he's 7-of-14 for 88 yards overall. Grant Ressel hit the 32-yard field goal to get the Tigers on the board. Henry Josey carried the ball seven times for 50 yards.
