Loveland's Collin Klein leads Kansas State to 7-0 start

Justin K. Aller

Colorado native Collin Klein has Kansas State off to a 7-0 start, and has vaulted himself squarely into the middle of the Heisman discussion.

Collin Klein, starting quarterback for the Kansas St. Wildcats and Loveland, Colo. native, has the Wildcats off to a 7-0 start and has thrust himself into the middle of the Heisman Trophy discussion. Klein has been impressive all year, but had his best game of the season on Saturday in KSU's 55-14 beatdown of West Virginia. He tallied 19-21 for 323 yards and three touchdowns passing, and 12 carries for 41 yards and four touchdowns rushing.

On the season, Klein's stat line reads: 98-139 for 1,397 yards, 10 touchdowns and two interceptions, and 110 carries for 551 yards and 14 touchdowns. A line like that should get a player some serious Heisman consideration, and Klein is no exception. He's most certainly in nearly every top five Heisman projection, and is emerging as a real contender for the trophy.

The Wildcats' run so far includes huge road wins over Oklahoma and West Virginia. They face another tough test next week, as they'll host upstart Texas Tech. They finish the season vs. Oklahoma State, at TCU, at Baylor and at home against Texas.
