Bill Snyder said the last time Texas Tech failed to score a touchdown in a game occurred in 2006. “So that would indicate it was a pretty good defensive effort. I was really proud of our defensive players, our coaches. Pretty special, nice effort.”
The win kept K-State’s bowl hopes alive. The Wildcats will need a win at Iowa State next Saturday night to qualify for a bowl game. Snyder indicated that will be an important game. “It would be a hard thing to hold everything together going up and playing such a late ( a night ) ballgame up there and nothing to play for.”
On the win over Texas Tech, K-State linebacker, Wyatt Hubert said. ” I’m just proud of the way the defense came together and played how we’re supposed to. Bitter cold with winds gripped the stadium throughout the contest Saturday making it tough on everyone and resulted in a diminished crowd by the end of the game.
K-State right tackle Dalton Risner nearly had a touchdown on a late in the game but after officials reviewed the play they decided it was a forward pass. The illegal touching foul eliminated the touchdown and set up Blake Lynch’s fourth field goal of the game for Kansas State.
