  2021 ALL-BIG 12 FIRST TEAM (COACHES): KR/PR Malik Knowles, Kansas State, Jr.,...Knowles' inclusion on the first team as a returner marks the 15th time in the 26-year existence of the Big 12 – and eighth time in the last nine years – that a Wildcat was a First Team All-Big 12 returner. A product of Mansfield, Texas, Knowles leads the nation in both kickoff-return average (32.9 yards per return) and touchdowns (2), as his scores went for 99 yards at Oklahoma State and 93 yards the next week against Oklahoma. - Kansas State Football

  2021 ALL-BIG 12 FIRST TEAM (COACHES): OL Cooper Beebe, Kansas State, So.,...A product of Kansas City, Kansas, Beebe is the only freshman or sophomore to earn First Team All-Big 12 honors this season. He is the Wildcats' first offensive lineman to earn First Team All-Big 12 accolades since Dalton Risner in 2018, while he is the first to pick up the honor as a freshman or sophomore since Risner in 2016. Beebe started all 12 games at left tackle, but he was versatile enough to fill in at right guard during games throughout the season. - Kansas State Football

  Adrian Martinez is heading to Kansas State from Nebraska. The four-year starting quarterback for the Cornhuskers announced Thursday night on Twitter that he would transfer to K-State. He is immediately eligible. Martinez was a three-time captain at Nebraska but went just 14-25 as the starter. He completed 61.8% of his passes for 2,863 yards with 14 touchdowns and 10 interceptions this past season. K-State loses senior starter Skylar Thompson after the Jan. 4 Texas Bowl against LSU and is on track to go into spring with four scholarship quarterbacks, including Martinez. Martinez was Nebraska’s first major addition following coach Scott Frost’s hiring in December 2017. He had initially committed to Tennessee. - AP College Football

  2021 BIG 12 CONFERENCE CO-DEFENSIVE LINEMEN OF THE YEAR (COACHES): Felix Anudike-Uzomah, Kansas State, So.,...A native of Kansas City, Missouri, Anudike-Uzomah is the fourth Wildcat to earn the Big 12 Defensive Lineman of the Year award since the conference began the honor in 2006, while he is the first K-State player to earn the nod since Jordan Willis in 2016. Anudike-Uzomah ranks second in the Big 12 and ninth nationally in sacks (11.0), while he is first in the nation in forced fumbles (6). His sack total includes a school-record tying 4.0 against TCU, and he also forced two fumbles against the Horned Frogs. - Kansas State Football

  Deuce Vaughn ran for 121 yards and a touchdown, Sammy Wheeler had a touchdown catch along with a crucial fourth-down grab, and Kansas State beat mistake-prone West Virginia 34-17 on Saturday. Skylar Thompson had just 138 yards passing for the Wildcats (7-3, 4-3 Big 12), but the senior made a couple crucial throws when the Mountaineers (4-6, 2-5) had whittled a 24-3 deficit to seven midway through the fourth quarter. Jarret Doege had 268 yards passing with two touchdowns and two interceptions for West Virginia, which had won five straight against the Wildcats dating to the 2015 season. Leddie Brown added 85 yards on the ground.

West Virginia began digging a big hole when Doege was picked on the game's second play, his throw skipping off Winston Wright Jr.'s hands and into those of Russ Yeast. Kansas State promptly marched 55 yards to take a 7-0 lead. A few minutes later, the Mountaineers' VanDarius Cowan hit Thompson with a helmet-to-helmet blow and was ejected. They eventually got the ball back, but a personal foul for a chop block forced the Mountaineers to punt. The Wildcats' Ty Bowman slipped around the edge to block it, and teammate Marvin Martin picked up the loose ball for a 14-0 lead. - Kansas State/AP College Football

  Deuce Vaughn led Kansas State with a career-high 162 yards rushing and three touchdowns, Skylar Thompson shredded Kansas through the air before a cheap shot knocked him out of the game in the fourth quarter, and the Wildcats cruised to a 35-10 victory over the Jayhawks on Saturday. Thompson was 19 of 24 for 244 yards and a touchdown before he was hit by the Jayhawks' Gavin Potter out of bounds along the Kansas State sideline. Thompson remained on the ground for several minutes before finally getting up. The personal foul put the ball just outside the goal line, and Vaughn plowed in for his final rushing TD of the day. Vaughn also caught five passes for 60 yards, and Malik Knowles had 94 yards receiving and a touchdown, as the Wildcats (6-3, 3-3 Big 12) beat their rival for the eighth consecutive time at Memorial Stadium and 13th straight overall.

Devin Neal had 62 yards rushing for the Jayhawks (1-8, 0-6), who were down to third-string quarterback Jalon Daniels by the third quarter. Jason Bean was banged up early but was ineffective anyway, and backup Miles Kendrick was carted off after getting hurt on his second play of the game. Daniels finished 13 of 19 for 109 yards and a score. The Jayhawks trailed 21-3 by halftime and it could have been much worse. On offense, they watched running back Torry Locklin get carted off the field before Bean and Kendrick got hurt, and they saw normally sure-footed Jacob Borcila miss one of his two field-goal attempts. On defense, the Jayhawks allowed the Wildcats to gain a staggering 10.7 yards with every snap. - Kansas State/AP College Football

  NOV 1 BIG 12 DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Felix Anudike-Uzomah, Kansas State, DE, So.,...Anudike-Uzomah registered eight total tackles, 4.0 sacks for 20 yards, 4.0 TFL and also forced two fumbles in K-State's 31-12 win over TCU. His two forced fumbles also would have added two sacks to his total but the fumbles caused on the pass plays bounced forward. His 4.0 sacks tied Chris Johnson for the K-State single-game record and was just one shy of the Big 12 record. Anudike-Uzomah had sacks on back-to-back plays to end the first half and on the first play of the second half. He and Johnson are the only players in school history to have sacks on three-straight defensive plays, as the latter also did so in his 4.0-sack game at Missouri in 2000. K-State held TCU without an offensive touchdown until a late fourth-quarter score. Anudike-Uzomah was also named the Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week. - Big 12 Football

  After watching Kansas State's Felix Anudike-Uzomah seemingly match a Division I record with six sacks in a 31-12 victory over TCU on Saturday, coach Chris Klieman made an observation that should send chills through Big 12 quarterbacks. Or heart palpitations through NFL scouts. "I'm sure there's things he can continue to improve and get better at," Klieman said with a slight grin and shake of his head, before adding quickly: "But you have that special day, that's pretty awesome." Anudike-Uzomah, whose safety last week against Texas Tech jumpstarted the Wildcats' comeback win, also forced two fumbles against TCU while appearing to shatter the school record of four sacks set by Chris Johnson in 2000.

About two hours after the game ended, though, the NCAA announced two of the sacks do not count because they resulted in fumbles that went beyond the original line of scrimmage. By rule, those plays must be counted as rushes by the QB. Regardless, the four sacks that did count still represented a banner day for Kansas State's burgeoning defensive star. "Stay hungry and keep doing what I'm doing in practice, honestly," Anudike-Uzomah said. "This is one game. It's not the end of the season. I need to work hard and work on technique so I can pile on and pile on." Only three other players in the NCAA's highest division have had six sacks, including longtime NFL star Elvis Dumervil. "How could you not be excited for the kid?" Klieman said. "He set all sorts of records today, and every single one of them was critical play in a tight ballgame. Felix earns it. He works his tail off every single day." Skylar Thompson threw for 242 yards and a touchdown while also running for a score, and Deuce Vaughn added 109 yards and two touchdowns on the ground, as the Wildcats (5-3, 2-3 Big 12) beat TCU (3-5, 1-4) for the third straight time. - TCU/AP College Football

  Kansas State didn't change much at halftime despite trailing Texas Tech by two touchdowns. The outcome wasn't much different from recent seasons either - a sixth straight victory in the series for the Wildcats, who ended their longest Big 12 skid since joining the league in 1996. Skylar Thompson passed for 296 yards and the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter and Kansas State came up with sacks on the final two plays by the Red Raiders in a 25-24 victory Saturday. "We didn't change that many calls; we just played them better," said Kansas State's Chris Klieman, who is 3-0 against Matt Wells of Texas Tech in a matchup of coaches who joined the conference together in 2019. "It was a very simple game plan. We told the guys we were going to keep the game plan really simple so they could play fast. In the first half we played fast and made mistakes...and in the second half we kept it pretty simple, played faster and made plays." Thompson's 22-yard TD pass to Deuce Vaughn with just over six minutes left helped the Wildcats (4-3, 1-3 Big 12) rally from a 24-10 halftime deficit with a second-half shutout that stopped an eight-game conference losing streak going back to last year. The Red Raiders (5-3, 2-3) reached K-State's 46-yard line with three minutes to go. But the Wildcats responded when Felix Anudike-Uzomah sacked Henry Colombi for a 6-yard loss and Nate Matlack dropped the Texas Tech quarterback from behind on fourth-and-16. - Kansas State/AP College Football

  Adrian Martinez ran for a career-best three touchdowns and passed for another, and Nebraska broke big play after big play while putting away Northwestern early in a 56-7 win Saturday night. The Cornhuskers (3-3, 1-2 Big Ten) were sharp from the get-go and dominated a matchup that usually has produced close games. Eight of the previous 10 in the series were decided by eight points or less. It was the Huskers' most lopsided win in a Big Ten game since they joined the conference in 2011.

For Northwestern (2-3, 0-2), the losing margin matched the second largest in Pat Fitzgerald's 16 years as coach. Martinez connected with Samori Toure for a 70-yard pass on the game's first play from scrimmage - a sign of things to come - and the Huskers went into halftime with a 35-7 lead. Zavier Betts opened the second half with an 83-yard touchdown run down the sideline, and Martinez hit Toure in stride for a 38-yard score to make it 49-7. The Huskers had seven plays go for at least 20 yards and their 657 yards were their most in two years. Their 427 rushing yards were their most since they ran for 458 against Illinois in 2014. Martinez ran for 58 yards and had TD runs of 1, 1 and 25 yards and completed 11 of 17 passes for 202 yards. - Nebraska/AP College Football
