MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Deuce Vaughn had a rushing touchdown and another receiving, Will Howard threw for 173 yards and a score and Kansas State held off Texas Tech for a 31-21 win Saturday.
Up 24-21 with two minutes left, Howard found Vaughn across the middle on third down for a 70-yard touchdown pass to seal the win.
“We knew they wanted to blitz and put a linebacker on me,” Vaughn said. “When I saw that, Will and I looked at each other and thought we had a good matchup.”
Vaughn finished with 113 yards rushing, the most by a true freshman at Kansas State since 2008, and had three receptions for 81 yards.
“He is a special talent and I can’t say enough about our offensive line,” Kansas State coach Chris Kleiman said.
