MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Elijah Lee and the rest of the Kansas State defense trudged to the locker room at halftime against Texas Tech on Saturday night fortunate to be ahead.Then, the Wildcats made a solemn vow.Second half, the veteran linebacker said, with sternness to his voice, we had the mindset that they cant do to us what they did to us in the first half.They proceeded to shut down Patrick Mahomes and the Red Raiders over the final 30 minutes, holding on for a 44-38 victory highlighted by touchdowns in all three phases of the game.Texas Tech only scored 10 points in the second half, seven coming in the games final minute.We came together as a defensive unit and we were like, `We have to eliminate all the big plays, Kansas State cornerback Duke Shelley said. This game was on us.Mahomes, despite an ailing shoulder, still threw for 504 yards and two touchdowns while running for three more scores. But the Red Raiders junior quarterback also threw a pick that was returned for seven and failed to convert three fourth downs in the second half.He also failed to get off a throw to the end zone from midfield on the final play of the games.Hes a tough kid, said Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury, who acknowledged Mahomes did not practice fully this week. We wouldnt put him out there if he couldnt handle it.Still, the result was the 196th win for Kansas States Bill Snyder, and it came in his 300th game leading the Wildcats. It also came day after the Hall of Fame coachs 77th birthday.Not that he was in much of a mood to enjoy it.Snyder was terse in his postgame comments, particularly when asked about burning through his three timeouts in the second half. But he was proud of the way his defense performed in the second half.They got a ton of yardage, Snyder said. We put them in some fourth down situations, which was good, because they didnt convert any.Indeed, the teams waged a back-and-forth offensive showdown in the first half with Pringles TD return giving the Wildcats a 31-28 advantage with 1:31 left before the break. But it wasnt until the Red Raiders chose to go for it on fourth down -- twice -- in the third quarter that the game pivoted.The first came inside the Kansas State 5 on the first possession of the second half, when a field goal would have tied the game. The second came later in the third quarter, when a sack gave the Wildcats the ball at the Texas Tech 47 -- and set them up for a touchdown that made it 38-31.Trying to be aggressive, Kinsbury said. We felt like we had a chance there with the play calls that we liked. They made a good play on the ball, just didnt go our way.The Red Raiders finally did punt on fourth-and-1 at their own 34 early in the fourth quarter, but their defense allowed Kansas State to go 71 yards for a field goal that made it a two-possession game.Texas Tech failed to convert another fourth down a few minutes later, the Wildcats added one more field goal, and not even a late touchdown by the Red Raiders was enough to change the outcome.GUT PUNCHPringle was playfully -- maybe? -- punched in the gut by teammate Dominique Heath while celebrating his kickoff return touchdown. He crumpled to the ground and lay there for a moment, and said afterward that the uppercut knocked the wind out of him. Im feeling good now, he said.THE TAKEAWAYTexas Tech: The Red Raiders can score with anybody, but they also can allow anybody to score with them. Kansas State barely sniffed the end zone in a 17-16 loss to West Virginia last week.Kansas State: The Wildcats, tops in the Big 12 defensively entering the game, allowed Texas Tech to go 6-of-7 on third downs in the first half. They went 3-of-9 in the second half.UP NEXTTexas Tech: West Virginia visits Lubbock, Texas, on Saturday.Kansas State: No. 20 Oklahoma awaits the Wildcats on Saturday. Cheap Celtics Jerseys China . Each of Houstons starters scored in double figures as the Rockets improved to 2-0 against the Spurs this season, with both victories coming on the road. They also moved within 3 1/2 games of San Antonio (22-7) for the lead the Southwest Division. Cheap Boston Celtics Jerseys http://www.cheapcelticsjerseys.com/ . Collaros, 25, was solid last season, posting a 5-2 record as the starter while incumbent Ricky Ray was injured. Collaros also started Torontos 23-20 regular-season finale loss to Montreal — Ray didnt dress because the Argos had already clinched first in the East Division — but was one of three quarterbacks to play that day. Cheap Robert Williams Jersey .C. -- Kemba Walker and the Charlotte Bobcats got off to a fast start, and the Sacramento Kings were never quite able to catch up. Cheap Bill Russell Jersey . -- Anaheim Ducks defenceman Luca Sbisa will be out at least six weeks with a torn tendon in his right hand. On paper, UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and interim champion Jon Jones have similar numbers. However, in their first fight last year, Jones statistically and physically dominated the contest. The following categories will be key in deciding whether Cormier can change the result or if the main event of UFC 200 will be a repeat of their first fight.WrestlingAs a two-time Olympian in freestyle wrestling, Cormier was assumed to have the grappling advantage heading into their first fight. Despite his determination, Cormier was able to land only one brief takedown on eight attempts. Jones, on the other hand, landed three of five takedowns, becoming the first fighter to take down Cormier more than once in a fight. To compete against Jones, Cormier will likely need to return to his roots and drag the fight to the ground. He is at his best when he can mix up his striking and wrestling, as he did on the way to winning the interim title over Anthony Johnson.Striking defenseDuring his UFC career, Jones opponents have often struggled to land against him. He allows his rivals only two significant strikes landed per minute. Jones has a way of making his opponents underperform compared to their demonstrated abilities. Since 2011, Jones has made all of his opponents miss more often than their career striking accuracy average. The drop-off in his opponents striking accuracy has been drastic in his last three fights. Ovince Saint Preux and Cormier were both 13 percentage points under their career norm, while Glover Teixeira finnished 17 percentage points below his career striking accuracy.ddddddddddddCormier lands a very respectable 48 percent of his significant strikes, but he will likely struggle to score against Bones.Height and reachA large part of Jones defense stems from his 84-inch reach, one of the longest in the UFC. He uses his reach to make opponents pay for attempting to close the distance and strike. His length allows him to score with a series of unorthodox kicks before opponents can even get into normal striking range. Cormier is five inches shorter than Jones and will need to contend with a 12-inch reach disadvantage. Cormiers first challenge will be to withstand Jones exterior barrage in order to close the distance and land power shots.Ring rustFollowing his last fight at UFC 197, the prevailing wisdom was that Jones underwhelming performance against Saint Preux stemmed from ring rust due to his 476-day layoff between fights. However, from a numbers perspective, it was a typical Bones performance. Against Saint Preux, he landed 4.20 significant strikes per minute, only a hair below his career number (4.25). His striking accuracy and takedown accuracy that night were actually above his norm. On the other hand, Cormier was extremely active in 2015 but is now returning from an injury that forced him out of UFC 197. Despite having only one fight in the past 19 months, Jones might have momentum on his side.
