Trailing 17-3 in the 2nd quarter Park hit a wide open Trever Ryen in stride for a sure-fire TD, but Ryen dropped it, and ISU went in to half trailing by 14.

In the 4th Q trailing 31-17 the Cyclones had 4th and goal from the 1, Park rolled out, had David Montgomery wide open in front of him just a few yards away, but overthrew the pass, which resulted in a turnover of downs.

Iowa State outgained Kansas State by almost 100 yards, but they missed too many opportunities to make the big play.

The Cyclones fall to 1-7, up next a date with Oklahoma Thursday November 3rd at Jack Trice Stadium.
