Kansas State: Quarterback Carson Coffman had his 15 minutes of fame — the third quarter. Coach Bill Snyder wants him to remember the other 45 minutes and work on his consistency. Snyder on the team's mistakes: "We made them, and that makes us not a very good football team at this particular point in time. This is a team that needs to learn how to stop losing. That's an old adage, but there's a great deal of truth to it." The Wildcats also unveiled a 4-2-5 defense.
Oregon: Quarterbacks Jeremiah Masoli and Justin Roper combined to complete 37 of 56 passes for 516 yards and five touchdowns with no interceptions. But the running game was nondescript and errant snaps were an issue. The kicking was atrocious, with three misses and three blocks in six attempts. Before the scrimmage, coach Chip Kelly gave his team this record for the spring: "We're probably 11-2 right now." Attendance: 12,400.
Oregon State: With starting tailback Jacquizz Rodgers held out of contact to keep him healthy, the running game never got going. "I don’t know how to look at this totally," coach Mike Riley said. "I want to run better than we did today, and I don’t care who the running backs are. We should run because these guys are good. The one good thing to get out of it is our defense is going to be stout against the run again, and that’s one of the premises we start with."
San Diego State: Questions remain at tailback, where Atiyyah Henderson, Brandon Sullivan and Davon Brown combined to average only 2.8 yards a rush. The Aztecs ranked 117th in rushing last season.
Texas El Paso: Defense is not expected to be the team's strength, but that wasn't the case Saturday. "They played hard and they played good," coach Mike Price said. "That's where we have to improve. We got more pressure on the quarterback than we have all spring. We couldn't get things established on offense because the defense was playing so well."
