Klein hurt while leading No. 3 K-State to win
KANSAS ST 44, OKLAHOMA ST 30

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- Third-ranked Kansas State's perfect
season remained intact Saturday night.



So did its national title hopes.



The future of both may be in jeopardy, though, after Heisman
Trophy front-runner Collin Klein left in the third quarter of a
44-30 victory very Oklahoma State with an undisclosed injury.



Kansas State coach Bill Snyder declined to discuss the nature or
severity of it afterward, and said he wasn't sure whether Klein
would be available for next Saturday's game at TCU.



"Obviously he was injured or we wouldn't have taken him out,"
Snyder said.



Klein had thrown for 245 yards and run for 64 more before
sneaking in for his 50th career rushing touchdown with 9:47 left
in the third quarter to give Kansas State a 38-17 lead.



It wasn't clear when he got hurt, but Daniel Sams played the
rest of the way.



"Without Collin at quarterback, we had to do some adjustments,"
said Tyler Lockett, who had a 100-yard kickoff return touchdown.
"Collin was still a leader. He was on the sideline getting us
going, especially when things weren't going our way. That's what
I like about him."



Oklahoma State's Wes Lunt also left with an injury after
throwing his third interception in the third quarter. The
freshman quarterback, who missed six weeks with a knee injury
earlier this year, threw for 184 yards and a touchdown before
giving way to Clint Chelf.



Cowboys coach Mike Gundy likewise refused to discuss his
quarterback's injury.



"I'm really disappointed in myself, in our coaches, in the way
we played," Gundy said. "You travel on the road, and you play a
good football team, and you turn the ball over, you're poor on
special teams and you don't tackle well, you essentially don't
give yourself a chance to win."



Allen Chapman picked off three passes, returning one for a
touchdown, and John Hubert added a pair of TD runs as the
Wildcats (9-0, 6-0 Big 12) moved ever close to a Big 12 title.



Perhaps a national title, too.



They began the day second in the BCS standings behind only
Alabama, which squeaked past LSU, and ahead of fellow unbeaten
teams Notre Dame and Oregon.



"I'm proud of our guys because I think they've held up under the
pressure," Snyder said, "because it increases as you go on."



Kansas State ended the Cowboys' three-game winning streak and
lock up its first win over them since 2006. The Wildcats have
scored at least 44 points six times this season, and this time
did it against a team that had allowed 38 total over its last
three games.



"It was a tough loss and everything, but they played great,"
Oklahoma State running back Joseph Randle said. "They're
deserving of where they're at, 9-0, and they played a great
game."



Chelf finished 16 of 27 for 233 yards and a touchdown for the
Cowboys (5-3, 3-2), who should know something about playing
late-season spoiler to a team in title contention. They were
ranked No. 2 when they lost to Iowa State late last season, and
got shut out of the BCS title game.



This one was just about as wild as last season's matchup in
Stillwater, when the Cowboys held on in the final minutes after
the teams combined for 32 fourth-quarter points.



Oklahoma State struck first when Lunt hit Austin Hays for a
54-yard touchdown reception, but the Wildcats came back with 17
unanswered points - Hubert's two touchdown runs were sandwiched
around the first of Anthony Cantele's three field goals.



Quinn Sharp added the first of his three field goals to get the
Cowboys within 17-10 before the fireworks really started:
Lockett field the ensuing kickoff deep in his end zone and went
the distance for his fourth career TD return, and Desmond Roland
answered by fielding a short kickoff by Kansas State and going
80 yards for another touchdown return.



Chapman's pick-six made it 31-17 at halftime.



The Cowboys had the ball to start the second half, and Lunt
appeared to get hurt while throwing an interception to Nigel
Malone. He never returned to the game.



The Wildcats marched 93 yards before Klein's touchdown plunge
from a yard out made it 38-17, but their star quarterback never
returned to the game.



Sharp and Cantele traded field goals before Chelf hit Charlie
Moore for a 13-yard touchdown catch to get the Cowboys within
41-27. The two kickers traded field goals again before Cantele
missed from 24 yards to give Oklahoma State the ball with 4 1/2
minutes left in the game.



The Cowboys marched to the Kansas State 8, but Chapman picked
off Chelf in the end zone for his final interception of the
night. His three picks were one shy of Jaime Mendez's school
record set against Temple on Sept. 26, 1992.



"It came down to a couple possessions, and we turned the ball
over, and you're not going to win like that," Chelf said. "We
definitely had to play better than we did."
