The offense is similar to Alabama’s, scoring 38 points per game, 17th in the country, with a highly rated, playmaking quarterback slinging the ball. That’s Aaron Murray, who has thrown for 3,200 yards, 30 touchdowns and just 7 interceptions, with a 67% completion percentage of his own.

On why it is difficult to limit Kansas State QB Collin Klein: I still think it is all of the deception throws. The running game is excellent. They are a great running football team, but it is still the vertical throwing game and the big plays that they get out of it. That is still a big issue. We still have to line-up and stop the run as we did a year ago, be physical up front and do a great job with our eye control. We still really need to make sure we stay on top of the vertical throwing game. They can produce a lot out of that.
On expectations for QB Case McCoy: Both of our quarterbacks are great, and I think Case does a good job of commanding the huddle and leading and making plays when he needs to make plays. Like I said, both of our quarterbacks do a real good job.
On the difference for the team with McCoy at center versus QB David Ash: It really doesn’t matter for us. I think we just need to be able make plays with whoever is the quarterback. Doesn’t matter if Case or David is the quarterback, our responsibility is still the same.
