Kansas State’s Kip Daily won the Big 12’s defensive player of the week award Monday after making two interceptions against Massachusetts.
The Kansas City Star
Daily, a senior, intercepted his first career pass in the first quarter of K-State’s 37-7 win on Saturday, returning it 38 yards for a touchdown. He also intercepted a pass in the third quarter. Daily is the first Wildcat to record a multi-interception game since Allen Chapman’s three-interception game against Oklahoma State last season.
Trouble at Texas
K-State has won five straight against its next opponent, Texas, which was thumped for the second week in a row Saturday.
Mississippi beat Texas 44-23 almost the same way BYU smashed the Longhorns the week before. The Rebels rushed for 272 yards and confused the Longhorns with the zone read. The result left Texas fans booing coach Mack Brown, and he said Monday he sometimes feels like booing himself.
Still, Brown remains positive entering Saturday’s 7 p.m. kickoff against K-State on ABC.
“Our goal was to win the Big 12 championship,” Brown said. “We still have a chance to do that. It starts on Saturday.”
