MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) In an era of high-octane offenses producing gaudy statistics and prodigious point totals, it makes sense that Kansas State's old-school coach can appreciate an old-school defensive performance.
The No. 11 Wildcats shut down Texas quarterback Tyrone Swoopes, made a couple of key stops deep in their own territory and put together the first shutout of the Longhorns in nearly a decade with a 23-0 victory Saturday that kept Kansas State the lone unbeaten team in Big 12 play.
"It means a great, great deal," said Wildcats coach Bill Snyder, who turned 75 this month. "It just doesn't happen in this day and age."
