MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas State is looking to improve its
rushing defense before taking on Oklahoma State this weekend.
Oklahoma State's high-powered offense ranks sixth in the nation
with 246 rushing yards per game.
Dantrell Savage has rushed for more than 100 yards in four
straight games, including 212 yards in Oklahoma State's 45-14 win
at Nebraska last week.
The Number 25 Wildcats gave up 358 yards on the ground in their
two games against Kansas and Colorado.
Colorado's Hugh Charles even ran for a career-high 171 yards
against Kansas State.
Defensive end Ian Campbell says the problem is the first player
making contact isn't bringing down the ball carriers -- they're
making three or four yards after contact.
