MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State’s defense gave up big plays, its offense struggled to consistently move the ball and its special teams made more mistakes in one game Saturday than they often do in an entire season.

The Wildcats were still good enough to beat Kansas.

Alex Barnes ran for 117 yards and two touchdowns, Alex Delton scored the go-ahead TD from 21 yards out in the closing minutes, and Kansas State managed to hold on for a frigid, wind-blown 21-17 victory — their 10th straight over their biggest rivals.
