After forcing a punt Kansas State followed up by going on an 18-play drive and scoring again on a 1-yard touchdown run from Deuce Vaughn.

The Wildcats then intercepted LSU and went on another touchdown drive, with Thompson throwing a 5-yard pass to Knowles to put Kansas State up by 21 points. LSU finally got on the board late in the half as Jontre Kirklin threw a 23-yard touchdown to Jaray Jenkins.

Kansas State continued their strong play to state the third quarter, as Deuce Vaughn ran I a touchdown and Thompson completed a 2-yard touchdown to Vaughn to make things a 35-7 game. The Wildcats added another touchdown on a 1-yard tun from Vaughn before LSU got its second score of the game on a 15-yard pass from Kirklin to Malik Nabers before Kansas State ran the clock out.
