MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — In a league of high-powered offenses that love to air it out, Kansas State is a misfit.

The No. 7 Wildcats would prefer, in the words of Kansas coach Charlie Weis, to "ram it down your throat every single play." But an improved passing game has made the Wildcats more balanced, and more difficult to stop.

They've already thrown for 758 yards through four games, an increase of nearly 50 percent over last year, and quarterback Collin Klein is completing about 70 percent of his throws. He's connected on 15 plays of at least 20 yards, more than double this point last season.

As long as Bill Snyder is at the helm, Kansas State isn't likely to abandon its steady, clock-eating approach in favor of a full-on shootout mentality.
