For the second straight game, K-State scored a touchdown on its first play from scrimmage and has taken a total of :08 to score both touchdowns. No other Wildcat team in school history has scored touchdowns on its first play from scrimmage in the first two games of a season.

Also, K-State has scored touchdowns on drives that have had five or fewer plays five times this season, which are the fifth-most in the country through two games.

Quarterback Josh Freeman continues to rank among the nation's most efficient quarterbacks as the junior completed 16-of-21 passes for 288 yards and two touchdowns on Saturday to up his season efficiency rating to 209.3, which is tops in the Big 12 and fifth nationally.

The Wildcats rolled up 481 yards of total offense and moved up to No. 2 nationally in scoring offense with a 57.0 points per game average. K-State's 69 points on Saturday were the most since a school-record 76 against Ball State in 2000 and were the fourth-most in school history, third-most in the modern era of college football (post-Big Six era).
