KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas State is feeling a bit of deja vu after watching quarterback Skylar Thompson go down with a knee injury in Saturday's win over Southern Illinois.

The sixth-year senior missed most of last season with a shoulder injury, too. Now, the Wildcats will have to rely on Will Howard to lead the way. Howard was pressed into action as a freshman last season and got plenty of experience, even though he went through a series of wild ups and downs.

His first game back in the starting role will be against Nevada on Saturday.
