The Cyclones got sweet, sweet revenge that was 10 years in the making.

This game had Cyclone fans (like myself) who had just returned from Maui feeling a little chilly.

Cyclone fans walked into Jack Trice like:

The Cyclone offense moved the ball well in the first half.

Unfortunately, the Cyclone defense wanted no part of Kansas State’s offense for 3 quarters.

Kansas State ran all over the ‘Clones, thanks in part to the defensive line doing this once the ball was snapped.

In a bizarre sequence, the Cyclones got a touchdown nullified, missed a field goal, got 2 sacks, and muffed a punt before giving K-State the lead at half.

In fact, the entire whole first half was, well...

Many Cyclones left at halftime, but that was just to get more beer.

Many more left (and didn’t come back) after the Cyclones went down 17 early in the 4th quarter.

But then the Cyclone offense scored in 2 minutes.

And Willie Harvey came flying in on a blitz, forcing a Thompson fumble that was returned for a touchdown by Mike Rose.

The Cyclone offense kept rolling, scoring another touchdown to take a 42-38 lead.

The Cyclone defense would stop Kansas State on 4th down to end the game that included a questionable pass interference no-call.

The defense did nothing for 3 quarters, but was deadly in the 4th.

Thankfully, they showed up when it mattered, stopping the Vampire and his 10 game win streak.

Brock Purdy, Hakeem Butler, and David Montgomery walked all over the Kansas State defense.

And the Cyclones finally vanquished Bill Snyder for good (hopefully).
