Felix Anudike-Uzomah records 6 sacks as Kansas State beats TCU

Felix Anudike-Uzomah tied an FBS record with six sacks to lead Kansas State to a dominating 31-12 victory over TCU on Saturday in Manhattan, Kansas.

Anudike-Uzomah, who became the fourth FBS defender with six sacks, also forced a fumble in the fourth quarter with TCU driving.

Kansas State (5-3, 2-3 Big 12) showed up defensively in the clutch. TCU came into the game perfect in 25 red-zone possessions (18 touchdowns, seven field goals), but the Horned Frogs managed one touchdown and one field goal in four red-zone possessions.

KSU quarterback Skylar Thompson was 13-of-21 for 242 yards with two total touchdowns. Deuce Vaughn rushed for 109 yards and two touchdowns.

TCU (3-5, 1-4 Big 12) has lost five of its last six games.

Anudike-Uzomah passed Chris Johnson (four sacks vs. Missouri, 2000) for the school record. TCU had allowed eight sacks through its first seven games.

Kansas State got on the board first with a 4-yard touchdown run by Thompson. The seven-play, 78-yard drive was keyed by a Thompson-to-Vaughn 41-yard pass that put the ball on the 4-yard line.

TCU responded with a 24-yard field goal by Griffin Kell. Kansas State then scored on a 42-yard touchdown run by Vaughn. Kansas State faced fourth-and-1 just across midfield, but Vaughn went off-tackle and raced untouched to the end zone.

TCU had a chance to get back into the game when Kendre Miller raced 61 yards to the Kansas State 1-yard line. But the Frogs couldn’t score in four plays from a yard out. The defense stopped Vaughn for a safety on the next play.

Vaughn redeemed himself on the next possession, leaping high over a pile of linemen to score a 1-yard touchdown to give Kansas State a 21-5 lead right before the half. Vaughn’s touchdown was set up by a Thompson-to-Phillip Brooks 37-yard pass.

TCU was stopped on fourth down inside the 5-yard line again in the second half.

On the first play of the fourth quarter, Thompson hit Daniel Imatorbhebhe for a 73-yard touchdown to put the game out of reach. Chris Tennant’s 42-yard field goal capped the scoring.

Emari Demercado scored TCU’s only touchdown with 15 seconds left.
