Miami Vs. Kansas State: Collin Klein Leads Wildcats To Big Halftime Lead

Quarterback Collin Klein totaled three touchdowns - two on the ground, one through the air - in the first half of Kansas State's game against the Miami Hurricanes, leading the No. 21 Wildcats to a 24-6 halftime lead.

Klein completed 2-of-3 passes for 26 yards and ran for 23 more on the game's opening drive, and got the scoring started with a one-yard touchdown run. After a fumble by Miami running back Eduardo Clements, Klein rushed for another score to put the Wildcats up 14-0.

A Jake Wieclaw field goal brought the Hurricanes within 14-3 at the end of the first quarter. Kansas State responded with a field goal of their own, and after a Miami punt, Klein threw a 27-yard touchdown pass to Curry Sexton to extend the lead to 24-3.

Miami kicked another field goal on their last drive of the first half to cut the lead back down to 18 points.

Klein is 6-of-7 for 98 yards and a touchdown at halftime, and also has 15 carries for 35 yards and two scores. For the Hurricanes, Stephen Morris is 10-of-12 for 142 yards, but has gotten almost no help from his running game or defense. Miami has 14 carries for just 19 yards, and they have given up 217 yards of offense to the Wildcats in the first half after surrendering 537 yards to Boston College last week.
