FORT WORTH, Texas - Collin Klein ran for two touchdowns and No. 3 Kansas State bolstered its national title hopes with a 23-10 victory at Big 12 newcomer TCU on Saturday night.
The Wildcats improved to 10-0 for only the second time under coach Bill Snyder, and moved within two wins of likely reaching their first BCS championship game.
Only a few minutes after the start of Kansas State's game, and a rare turnover by Klein, SEC newcomer Texas A&M finished off its 29-24 victory at Alabama, the No. 1 team in the BCS standings and AP poll. The Aggies win gave their old Big 12 rivals at K-State a boost.
TCU (6-4, 3-4 Big 12) didn't take advantage of Klein's interception on the fourth play of the game. The Heisman Trophy hopeful then hit Chris Harper for a 62-yard pass, and ended that drive with a 7-yard TD run.
Kansas State, No. 2 in the BCS standings, has games left at Baylor and home against Texas.
