Quarterback Collin Klein is usually referring to the way coaches instruct players to hang onto the football, high enough to make it hard for defenders to pull it out.
The prevalence of the "high and tight" mantra is one reason the No. 6 Wildcats lead the Big 12 with a plus-10 turnover margin. Kansas State (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) has only lost two interceptions and just one fumble while forcing 13 turnovers by its opponents.
The Wildcats have scored 59 points off turnovers. Opponents have been shut out. Kansas State visits Iowa State on Saturday.
