OFFENSIVE MVP: Malik Knowles
Malik Knowles had his ideal sport in a whilst. Just before Skylar Thompson went down with his scary injuries, the Kansas State quarterback uncovered Knowles on two deep routes to established up the Wildcats nicely in the initially half.
When Will Howard relieved Thompson, the backup uncovered Knowles two a lot more occasions and bought the receiver more than the 100-yard getting mark on only 4 catches. That is the Knowles we realized we could see, but have been waiting around for it to occur to fruition.
Deuce Vaughn really should be shouted out for one more sport with more than 100 yards dashing. However, he did have a undesirable fumble in the 2nd quarter and wasn’t as sharp as we’ve been accustomed to observing out of him. He may possibly not have hit his conventional.
DEFENSIVE MVP: Felix Anudike
Felix Anudike had 3 sacks and two forced fumbles. That is all that definitely desires to be explained, but there is no question he is the following terrific Kansas State defensive close. Even the dynamic Wyatt Hubert never ever had a 3 sack sport.
Not to mention, two of the sacks had been of the strip assortment and the two finished up currently being turnovers for the defense.
Cody Fletcher’s engage in really should also be commended. He was was all more than the area for the 2nd week in a row, and he had to hold matters down in the initially half whilst his managing mate Daniel Green was out due to focusing on late towards Stanford.
Unique Groups MVP: Ty Zentner
Not a great deal happened in special groups. Taiten Winkel went 1 of two on his area aim makes an attempt and there wasn’t a great deal of enjoyment in the return sport, like everybody was assuming.
Ty Zentner punted the ball properly, even if it was just twice. He really should have had 1 punt that pinned Southern Illinois inside of their own five yard line, but the coverage crew failed to prevent it from rolling into the close zone.
His other try out was a awesome punt that pinned the Salukis inside of the 10-yard line.
