Kansas State Offense by the Numbers

The Wildcats have a about middle of the road in both rushing and passing offense.  Let's look at the numbers.

Rushing Offense:  The Cats rank 68th nationally and 8th in the Big XII in rushing offense, averaging 132.5 ypg and 4.48 ypc.  They alternate between running backs James Johnson and Leon Patton.  Johnson is averaging 4.41 ypc while Patton averages 5.8 ypc.  Don't expect either of them to average above 4 yards against this Texas D.  If the Cats hope to succeed they must do so with their...

Passing Offense:  The Cats are 66th in the nation in Passing and 9th in the Big XII, averaging 190.3 ypg and 12.12 yards a catch.  KState started out the year with senior Dylan Meier at quarterback, but during the loss to Baylor on September 30th Meier was replaced by freshman Josh Freeman, who will most likely start this Saturday's game.  Freeman is 6-6, 238 and has thrown for 921 yards 3 TDs and 5 INTs in his 5 starts and has a 3-2 record as a starter.

I'll bet that the incomparable Chizik can apply pressure on the freshman and fluster him into turnovers and poor throws.

That was by the numbers
