MANHATTAN, Kan., Sept. 13 (UPI) -- Darren Sproles rushed for 149 yards and three touchdowns Saturday afternoon as sixth-ranked Kansas State rolled past Division I-AA Massachusetts, 38-7.

With their Heisman Trophy candidate, quarterback Ell Roberson, nursing an injury to his non-throwing hand, the Wildcats (4-0) still had little trouble against their second straight I-AA opponent. It likely will cause more negative headlines about how soft their schedule is.

They held a 10-7 edge before Sproles put together consecutive scoring runs of two, nine, and one yards, the last of which made it 31-7 midway through the third quarter.

Jeff Schwinn, who started in place of Roberson, completed 17-of-26 passes for 229 yards and a touchdown.

The Wildcats had 490 yards of total offense to just 192 for the Minutemen (1-1), who dropped their fifth straight meeting against a Division I-A foe.
