Texas A&M has made a season of giving up leads late. This week, Kansas State has decided to join them.
Texas A&M stormed out to a 14-0 lead on a six-yard pass from Ryan Tannehill to Ryan Swope and a three-yard run by Jameill Showers. Kansas State close the gap, though, on a pair of Collin Klein rushing touchdowns. Eventually, Texas A&M staked itself to a 31-21 lead with 7:27 left in the game. But about a minute later, Collin Klein hit Chris Harper for a 53-yard touchdown; Anthony Cantele followed up a few minutes later with a field goal to tie it.
The first overtime started unconventionally, with Klein fumbling the ball -- to Tramaine Thompson, who recovered it for a touchdown. When A&M got the ball, Tannehill hit Jeff Fuller for a 9-yard touchdown reception. Both teams traded field goals in the second overtime.
Klein took control in the third overtime, running the ball in for his 23rd rushing touchdown of the year on the first play. But the Wildcats missed the two-point conversion. Then, on fourth-and-goal with the game on the line, Tannehill hit Uzoma Nwachukwu for an eight-yard touchdown -- and TAMU missed the two-pointer.
Cyrus Gray already has 211 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 28 carries. Ryan Tannehill was 24-of-43 for 195 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. Kansas State had more success throwing the football -- Collin Klein was 17-of-27 for 282 yards, a touchdown and an interception. He's rushed for 93 yards and four touchdowns on 31 carries
