K-State : “Oklahoma Running Backs Are Pretty Easy To Tackle”


Nothing came easy for Kansas State last October when the Oklahoma Sooners paid a visit to Manhattan. Oklahoma blanked the Wildcats 55-0 behind an offensive onslaught of 568 yards. Now, as the Wildcats prepare for a trip to Norman, defensive end Reggie Walker thinks things will come a little easier this year.

“I talked to Jordan Willis about that because he played them before, and he would just tell me that they’re pretty easy to tackle,” Walker told reporters on Tuesday. “If you do your assignments, you know, wrap up and just get them down, they’ll go down if you hit them hard.”

There’s no doubt that one of the biggest match-ups in this game are Oklahoma’s rushing attack against K-State’s run defense. The Wildcats lead the Big 12 in defending the run with opponents averaging just 2.7 yards per carry and 80.8 yards per game. Meanwhile Perine and Mixon are averaging 6.5 and 5.4 yards per carry respectively. Doesn’t look like anything will come easy for either side on Saturday.
