Skylar Thompson rolled left and saw primary target Byron Pringle covered, then avoided a defender and rolled back to the right before connecting with Isaiah Zuber in the back of the end-zone with no time remaining to will K-State past Iowa State, 20-19, in walk-off fashion at Bill Snyder Family Stadium Saturday.
Thompson’s connection to Zuber capped a 10-play, 87-yard drive over the final 1:55 as the Wildcats rallied from two scores down, wrapped around a crucial defensive stop, to give the Wildcats their seventh win of the season, and their 10th consecutive victory over the Cyclones.
Thompson completed 15-of-21 passing for 152 yards and a touchdown, while Zuber grabbed seven receptions for a total of 56 yards in the game.
Entering Saturday’s contest with 999 career rushing yards, Silmon surpassed the 1,000 yard-mark on a 2-yard rush in the second quarter. Silmon carried a total of five times for 32 yards in the game, to up his career-yardage to 1,031.
The trio of Silmon, Barnes and Warmack rushed for a total of 97 yards in the game, and a late touchdown pass from Barnes to Dimel, the first touchdown pass by a non-quarterback since fullback Glenn Gronkowski threw for a touchdown against Iowa State on November 21, 2015.
