Charlie Strong and Longhorns blanked by Kansas State
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - No. 11 Kansas State's rapidly improving defense pitched the first shutout of Texas in more than a decade in a 23-0 victory Saturday that kept the Wildcats unbeaten in Big 12 play.
Matthew McCrane kicked three field goals, and DeMarcus Robinson and Charles Jones each ran for a touchdown to lead the Wildcats (6-1, 4-0). Jake Waters threw for 224 yards, and Tyler Lockett had eight catches for 103 yards to climb another notch in the school record books.
Tyrone Swoopes was just 13 of 25 for 106 yards for the Longhorns (3-5, 2-3), who were shut out for the first time since a 12-0 loss to Oklahoma on Oct. 9, 2004. The blanking came just one week after they put up 524 yards of offense in a 48-45 victory over Iowa State.
