Sportsman of the Week Ending 9/25/2022


It's starting to get to the interesting part of the College Football season, with conference openers and no longer cupcake out of conference paydays.  One of the biggest upsets of the first week was orchestrated by a team that, quite frankly, got beat by a cupcake the week before.  The Kansas State Wildcats surprisingly fell to the Tulane (Mighty) Green Wave 17-10 last week in a stunner.  Many thought their conference title hopes would be abandoned.  Au Contrare.  Led by 5th year senior Nebraska transfer Adrian Martinez, the Wildcats beat the 6th ranked and Big 12 favorite Oklahoma Sooners 41-34.  Martinez accounted for five touchdowns, including four on the ground, with an efficient 21-34 passing and one TD, but gashing the defense with 148 yards rushing on 21 carries.  It's not like the Sooners could gang up on him, with weapon super back Deuce Vaughn also getting as many touches and more than 100 yards.  The Sooners had no answers for Martinez, who cemented the Wildcats fourth win in five years over the Sooners.  A deserving Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
