All eyes will be on Auburn as the Tigers travel to Manhattan, Kansas, to take on Bill Snyder's Wildcats. The out-of-conference match up will showcase two Top 20 teams in front of a nationally televised (ESPN) prime time audience [...]
"It'll help us moving forward because even though last year's team would handle adversity as good as any team I've seen, this year is a new team," Malzahn said. "We've got a lot of guys back, but it's a new year."
"It's why our guys believe in him, why they follow him," offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee said. "The moments are never too big for him. It doesn't matter if he's played great all game or struggled or somewhere in-between. When the game is on the line, he comes through for us."
Lockett caught six passes for 45 yards, but he didn't pick up more than 13 yards on any catch and didn't catch a pass in the second half until 5:50 remained in the fourth quarter of the Tigers' 20-14 win over the Wildcats.
Up until that play, Jones had come up on the short end of the matchup against Lockett. On Kansas State's first drive, he'd read a crossing route for Lockett perfectly, only to get his feet tangled up and draw a flag for pass interference.
