It was the third touchdown return of Lockett's career. K-State coach Bill Snyder expressed concerned last month about how new kickoff rules would negatively impact the Wildcats return game. But Locketts touchdown put some of those concerns to rest.
It has made it a bit more difficult. Its really hit and miss, Snyder said. We were fortunate and Tyler is a good young return guy.
