MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Daniel Sams threw for 391 yards and Jake Waters passed for 249 as the two ended their spring competition Saturday to replace Collin Klein as Kansas State’s quarterback.
The purple team beat the white team 76-3 and Waters and Sams each got two quarters with the first-string offense.
Waters, a junior college transfer, started the game for the Purple team. He completed 14 of 18 passes, showing impressive precision.
Sams saw spot duty while backing up Klein in 2012, and he was the obvious choice to succeed Klein before the Wildcats signed Waters. Sams is known for his speed but also showed off a strong arm Saturday.
Tyler Lockett had 231 yards receiving yards. With John Hubert not available, Robert Rose recorded ran for 141 yards on 17 carries.
