The Massachusetts Minutemen should have been outmatched by Kansas State in Manhattan and that's exactly what happened. The Wildcats had their best defensive performance of the year by holding Massachusetts to just seven points and nabbing two interceptions from quarterback A.J. Doyle.
On the other side of the ball, running back John Hubert was everywhere for the Wildcats. He carried the ball 18 times for 118 yards (6.6 YPC) and had two receptions for 50 yards. One of his receptions was a 43-yard touchdown, just before the half, that made the score 27-7.
