GAME OF THE WEEK
Texas (5-3, 3-2 Big 12, No. 24 CFP) at No. 13 Kansas State (6-2, 4-1, No. 13 CFP).
Running backs have been dominant in the Big 12 this season.
Five of the top 13 Power Five conference rushers in yards per game hail from the league. Kendre Miller is a key reason unbeaten TCU has a shot at reaching the College Football Playoff.

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — After the final seconds ticked away on No. 22 Kansas State's comprehensive 48-0 win over ninth-ranked Oklahoma State on Saturday, thousands of purple-clad fans didn't storm the field so much as they wandered onto it in celebration.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Kansas State coach Chris Klieman and TCU's Sonny Dykes provide similar descriptions about the focus of their teams, while players from both sides think much the same way.

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Kansas State has done it again.
Quarterback Adrian Martinez ran for 148 yards and four touchdowns, and the Wildcats stunned No. 6 Oklahoma 41-34 on Saturday night.
Kansas State beat Oklahoma in 2012, 2014, 2019 and 2020, but an upset seemed unlikely this time — the Wildcats were coming off a home loss to Tulane the previous week.
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — The century-old rivalry between Kansas State and Missouri still means something in Big 12 country, more than a decade after the Tigers bolted the league for the SEC, and that was evident this week when Wildcats coach Chris Klieman asked players who grew up across the border to talk about it.

“You have to make your own plays,” he said.
Vaughn has made lots of those — and in different ways — the last two years, and he's got plenty of company in the Big 12 this season.
