K-State grinds out 20-6 win over Colorado

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Daniel Thomas ran for 145 yards and a touchdown, and Emmanuel Lamur had two interceptions to lead Big 12 North-leading Kansas State to a 20-6 win over Colorado on Saturday.

Humbled by an early loss to Louisiana-Lafayette and a 66-14 beatdown by Texas Tech, Kansas State (5-3, 3-1) is alone atop the Big 12 North after impressive wins over Texas A&M and Colorado. The Wildcats forced four turnovers and held Colorado to 244 total yards
for their first 3-1 start in the Big 12 since 2000, during coach Bill Snyder's first tenure.

Colorado (2-5, 1-2) looked nothing like the team that traded big plays with Kansas last week, scoring on its first drive and doing little else to lose its 10th-straight road game. The Buffaloes are 2-17 away from Boulder in coach Dan Hawkins' three-plus seasons.
