Take Two: Who has the Big 12's best defense?

It's still early in the season, but in a discussion of the Big 12's best defenses, a pair of ESPN reporters make cases for Kansas State and Baylor.

Kansas State and Missouri State have called the game, due to weather, with the Wildcats ahead 35-0 at halftime. The game and the stats will count. K-State moves to 2-1.

Kansas State didn't allow a short weather delay affect its timing. QB Jesse Ertz is 7 of 8 passing for two TDs to go along with 85 yards rushing, as K-State leads Missouri State, 35-0, at half.

Kansas State-Missouri State delayed until at least 7:05 CT due to weather.

Harris is buying Kansas State

The K-State offense has scored in all 36 trips to the red zone in its last nine games, notes Will Harris. When you consider the Wildcats' success on defense and special teams, they could be a contender in the wide-open Big 12. Early betting notes (Insider)

Kansas State played host to its first official visitor this past weekend when three-star linebacker Dimitri Moore was on campus for the Wildcats' blowout victory over FAU. "I liked it a lot," Moore said. "It was very fun and the coaches were great. There's no place like it." Moore, the No. 135 player in the Lone Star State out of Cedar Hill High School, also has offers from Arizona State, Arkansas, Cal, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Texas Tech and others, said he's not sure when his next official visit would be.

Kansas State should have one of the Big 12's best defenses. They played like it today, holding FAU to 7 points, 211 yards and 1-of-13 on third down while forcing four turnovers in a 63-7 win. The Wildcats had a bye after their loss to Stanford and came back strong today.

Fullbacks are rare commodity in the Big 12 these days. Not at Kansas State, where Winston Dimel has four rushing TDs on five carries today against FAU. The son of offensive coordinator Dana Dimel helping K-State go up 42-0 at halftime.

Max Olson ESPN Staff Writer 

Wrote this week that Kansas State needed to get its running backs rolling this week against FAU. One good solution: RB Charles Jones just took a direct snap with a wide-split offensive line and picked up a first down. The Wildcats have only gotten two 100-yard performances from RBs in their past 27 games.
