DALLAS Teams

Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

Kansas State is in total control at TCU, nearing its eighth win and an almost-certain trip to the Advocare V100 Texas Bowl. The Wildcats lead 23-6 after three quarters and have run for 294 yards, led by 159 from QB Jesse Ertz. The Horned Frogs, barring a big comeback, will lose a fourth consecutive home game for the first time since 2012.

Kansas State is starting to run away from TCU in rainy and cold Fort Worth. Byron Pringle's 83-yard TD reception from Jesse Ertz upped the Wildcats' lead to 17-6 early in the second half. And QB Kenny Hill has resurfaced for the Horned Frogs. It won't matter if TCU can't slow K-State's offense. The Cats have run for 192 yards.

Rick Carlisle, essentially telling reporters to stop asking about Dirk Nowitzki's status: "I talked to [Mavs head athletic trainer Casey Smith] yesterday, and I think he's going to be out for a while. I think indefinitely is an accurate word. … Taking daily questions about it gets exhausting for him. And if it's not going to happen real soon, then what's the point? Look, progress has been made. It's just not there yet."

Quarterback Kenny Hill is on the bench today for TCU's regular-season finale against Kansas State after leaving early on Thanksgiving with an injury in the Horned Frogs' win at Texas. The start went to Foster Sawyer, who is leading TCU on its second drive, down 3-0 to the Wildcats late in the first quarter of this battle for Big 12 bowl position.

Mavs coach Rick Carlisle indicated that Dirk Nowitzki, already ruled out of Saturday's game against the Bulls, is likely to miss at least one additional game due to lingering soreness in his right Achilles' tendon. "Dirk's situation is improving, but he is really out indefinitely," Carlisle said during his weekly appearance on 103.3 FM ESPN. Nowitzki has played in only five games for the 3-15 Mavs this season.
