Per ESPN: MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Nick Marshall threw two touchdown passes, Auburn forced three turnovers and the fifth-ranked Tigers held on to beat mistake-prone No. 20 Kansas State 20-14 on Thursday night.

Marshall finished with 231 yards passing for the Tigers (3-0), who were forced to the air by a Wildcats defense that was bent on stopping the run. The nation's sixth-ranked rushing attack had only 130 yards on the ground, 200 less than its season average.

Not that it mattered the way Kansas State (2-1) squandered its chances.

Jake Waters threw for 245 yards, but he also tossed two interceptions -- one in the Auburn end zone. The Wildcats also fumbled the ball away, and Jack Cantele missed three field-goal attempts.

Complete Recap

Ummmm, no it wasn't. You sound like the idiots calling the game last night. FYI, KSU lost their star cornerback to a groin injury.

This game is pretty similar to the LSU wisconsin game. neither team really looked that good, but the SEC was able to pull it out. Of course KSU didn't lose their best player halfway through the game...
