Player of the game: Running back John Hubert scored three touchdowns and gave K-States running game life with double-digit gains when he was in the backfield.
Reason to hope: K-State will get Big 12 championship shirts, rings and hats for this victory. It will also go to the Fiesta Bowl. Both are great accomplishments for a program that has gone without them since 2003.
Reason to mope: Collin Klein might not have done enough against Texas to win the Heisman Trophy.
Looking ahead: K-State will learn its bowl opponent Sunday. Most expect it to face Oregon in the Fiesta Bowl.
