Iowa State played without its leading rusher, James White, who missed the game with a knee injury that Rhoads said after the game will likely keep him out for two weeks.
The Cyclones struggled without White, rushing for just 65 yards on 24 carries. But given how much clock Klein and the Wildcats ate up, it's not like White would gotten a lot of carries anyway.
"It reads like a Bill Snyder-authored novel. Standard Kansas State football game, coached by a legendary coach and quarterbacked by a great, great football player," Rhoads said.
