No. 6 TCU finishes off Kansas State, 26-6 in Manhattan. Quality road win for the Horned Frogs who should be in really good position after this week. Clemson's loss on Friday night likely means TCU will move up a spot. The first College Football Playoff rankings release on Oct. 31.

TCU wasted no time getting back in the end zone with a 1-yard Sewo Olonilua touchdown run, to cap an eight-play, 65-yard drive. No. 6 TCU in complete control, 26-6 over Kansas State in the fourth quarter. Looks like the Horned Frogs will cruise to victory today.

One key first half point swing: An Alex Delton-to-Byron Pringle touchdown pass in the second quarter was nullified by an offensive pass interference penalty. The penalty, plus a sack and fumble on the next play, meant Kansas State came up empty-handed on the drive. TCU earned a field goal on the ensuing drive, which gave them a 13-0 lead at that point.

Kansas State is averaging only 2.4 yards per play and is 0-for-8 on third downs but only trails No. 6 TCU 13-3 at halftime. The Horned Frogs have a 184-71 total offense advantage, but have been unable to translate it into a larger lead.

TCU is winning the battle on both lines of scrimmage so far vs. Kansas State through a quarter of play. The Horned Frogs have been strong defensively, allowing only two first downs and 25 first-quarter yards, while the offensive line has opened holes for the running backs and protected Kenny Hill well.

Kansas State sophomore Alex Delton did get the start at quarterback over Jesse Ertz, who left last week's loss at Texas with an injury. Ertz is suited up, though.

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

Kansas State backup quarterback Alex Delton took first-team snaps in warmups so it looks like he'll get the start in place of senior Jesse Ertz, who left last week's loss at Texas with an injury. Ertz is suited up today and warmed up with the team so he appears to be available if needed.

GameDay Kickoff: TCU on upset watch at Kansas State?

One of the keys to the Horned Frogs' success is they are converting on third-down opportunities at the highest rate in FBS. However, Bill Snyder is a Hall of Fame coach with a team that doesn't typically beat itself.
