why don't you taste for yourself? >> gus: all right. a look at our game summary. >> charles: raphael guidry's block p.a.t. that turned into two points. look at that, since that time. kansas state 160 of their 176 total yards. >> gus: from the 20-yard line. klein, nine of 19. 92 yards passing. there is guidry. >> charles: affected two kicking plays tonight. forced arkansas to puppet
instead of a field goal attempt after he drew them offsides. >> gus: rush the ball 16 times for 42 yards and a touc touchdown. john hubert in the backfield. here is hubert. lurking. got it back in. gets to the 22. as robert thomas was there to stop it. >> charles: jake bequette has been wreaking havoc, as you noted in the backfield. he has take then series on. if they do decide to throw the ball, can anyone rush the passer. jake bequette has run tonight. >> gus: second down and 8. klein. on the sideline. picks up a first down and boy are they hitting on the field tonight. charles davis.
>> charles: when someone makes a catch or runs the ball, they rally to him. watch collin klein in the pocket. i mentioned he is not the most polished passer in the world. but head to the left side. brings it back to the right side. sticks it on the check down to sheldon smith. well done, collin klein. >> gus: first down, kansas state. at the 31. klein. the throw again. klein. and another completion for brodrick smith. you have been saying he might not be the most polished passer but on this night he is an effective passer. >> charles: that is all they care about. we've seen that throughout the season. we have seen sequences of collin klein going 0-5, 0-7, 1-10. when you need it, he puts it on the receivers. bam, bam, bam. and they move down the field. right now, his offensive line
is giving him a nice protection in the pocket. >> gus: i have to admit they care him to ti -- compare him to tim tebow but it look like he has a little bit better throwing motion than tim tebow. >> charles: they are going to take a time-out here. look at how this ball ends up. that is a well-thrown ball. and a nice catch by brodrick smith. one of our colleagues knows brodrick smith pretty well, because he recruited him when he was head coach at the university of minnesota. >> gus: it look like he got a toe down first. >> charles: before the knee came down. >> charles: tim brewster had brodrick smith -- >> referee: the ruling on the field is confirmed. catch at the sideline. first down. >> charles: so that catch is good. they move on. tim brewster recruited
brodrick smith, and he told me before the game he could have an impact. he is a terrific player when he is on the field. missed some this year due to disciplinary reasons. >> gus: so first down and ten at the 45. >> gus: collin klein hands it off. sneaking around the right side. he will go back with the angle and the tackle. >> charles: and arkansas did not like what minimal pass rush was going on, on the series. look who came back up the field. jake bequette, the guy they have had trouble blocking all night. coming usually from the blind side of collin klein. zach hanson, tackle, number 70, trying to handle him.
>> gus: second down and 11. >> gus: here is klein again. he dumps this one. incomplete. it looks like they were trying to set up a screen for hubert. but arkansas standing on the play. pressure by highsmith and jones. that brings up third down and 11. >> charles: bequette also coming from the end. jarius wright with good pressure from the front four of arkansas that threw the timing off on the play. at the arkansas 45. look for zone. the diversion. all night here at the top. usually their go-to receiver. >> gus: klein. with time.
over the middle. caught by smith! first down. what a catch by smith! he took a shot. and collin klein delivers on third down once again. >> charles: right here. watch him work inside. it's zone coverage. as he goes in. bennett makes a nice break on the ball with a big hit. but sheldon smith, he has a new nickname. "pinball." just bounces right off and keeps moving downfield. almost ran backwards and almost had a first down catch. >> gus: first down and ten at the 45. for klein. back to throw it. klein. think about running it. and klein taken down from behind. good coverage, though, in the arkansas secondary. >> charles: coverage has been good for most of the night.
really by both teams to allow the rush to get to the quarterback. arkansas found a few more openings downfield against kansas state's defense, but overall, all night, i have been impressepressed with both s of secondary. >> gus: klein relying on his arm. he hasn't taken off or run the football, as we expected him to, this evening. but he may be due. second and 13 at the 48. rolls out of the pocket. and klein decides to run it. he will get to the 42-yard line. jerico nelson defensively. that brings up another big third down for kansas state. >> charles: the last play had numerous options on it. collin klein running to the corners you described. also had a receiver coming underneath. could have given him a shovel pass. if it was open. wasn't there. klein kept it and got to the corner. >> gus: sheldon smith out wide to the top of your
screen. isaac madison guarding him. hubert out of the backfield as well. at the very bottom of your screen. empty backfield for collin klein on third and seven. klein looking. over the middle. smith again. at the 29. sheldon smith. on third and seven. gets 14. and smith has been terrific on this series. >> charles: top of your screen. 87 in white. 6 in red. this is what they call man free coverage. cover one. everyone in man-to-man with a safety over the top with no responsibility. except to cover him by zone. sheldon smith wins that one at the line of scrimmage. that is what the coaches call winning on the perimeter. good job by sheldon smith on his route. >> gus: first down and the 28. now klein handing it off. [ whistle ] hubert. jerico nelson stops him.
how about sheldon smith? three big catches on this drive. he had a nine yard catch on second and eight. he had an 11-yard catch on third down and 11 for first down. and then a 14-yard catch on third down and seven. >> charles: remember that catch he had against texas. getting their first touchdown of the game. >> gus: second down and eight. klein, smith, thinking with the same brain now. klein. wants to run it. nothing. great job by the arkansas interior defense. alonzo highsmith. >> another third down. if kansas state is going to throw the football from the pocket, there is one guy they have to make sure they block. that is jake bequette, number 91, the defensive end. see him over here working against zach hanson. >> gus: sheldon smith, at
the bottom of your screen. number 87. the stand up tight end. at the bottom as well. third down and 8. klein. under pressure. klein lets it go. incomplete. this may be a fourth down situation. for kansas state. >> charles: they decided to bring a little extra pressure, because watch in here. all right, right here. it's going to be highsmith. also coming in, collin klein. hubert moves inside to block franklin, leafing highsmith for a free run -- leaving highsmith for a free run at the quarterback klein with bequette also back there. >> gus: they need the three points so they bring on cantele. a 42-yard attempt. down and up. oh! no good. 6:36 to play in the fourth
quarter. kansas state comes up empty. it's so nice to spend time, just you and me. i know, this is great. you know, i feel like... did you just check the game on your phone? what? no! what am i, like some kind of summoner who can just summon footage to his phone like that? come on. i guess i'm just a little... ooh! ...oversensitive... it's just that you and i -- yes!
