  Draft Scout by Conference

  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
