There is no doubt that there is a lot of mutual respect for both head coaches towards one another. Bill Snyder, who built that Kansas State program now in his second tour of duty with that team. Bo Pelini says when you play K-State you can always expect a little wrinkle, something new, something different from Snyder.
The key? Being sound in what the Huskers are doing on the field, because they’ll be facing a pretty disciplined Wildcat team. Kansas State’s offense maybe not centered around their quarterback, but Carson Coffman obviously a big piece of that puzzle in terms of how he manages a game.
As I noted on yesterday’s report, K-State is second in the Big 12 in rushing behind Nebraska. The pass game, 103rd in the nation is just behind Nebraska in terms of yards per game, but K-State 28th in the nation in passing efficiency, so when they do throw the football, they’re pretty good at it, they just don’t rely on it.
