MANHATTAN, Kan., Oct. 12 (UPI) -- Eli Roberson passed for 202 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 96 yards and two more scores Saturday to give No. 23 Kansas State its ninth straight win over Oklahoma State, 44-9.
Darren Sproles added 130 yards rushing and one touchdown as the Wildcats outgained the Cowboys, 499-184, limiting their Big 12 Conference rivals to just 40 yards on the ground.
The Wildcats (5-1, 1-1 Big 12 North) produced four first-half touchdowns but led only 25-9 at the break due to a missed extra point and two failed two-point conversion attempts.
But Roberson took over in the second half, scoring on a one-yard run in the third quarter, completing a 46-yard touchdown toss to James Terry early in the fourth quarter and running it in from 10 yards out with 8:50 to go.
Roberson was nine of 17 with one interception.
Josh Fields went 15 of 38 for 133 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions for the Cowboys (2-4, 0-2 South).
