Kansas State has its issues following a 32-28 win over Iowa State on Saturday.

It also has mental toughness and Jake Waters — two things that could go a long way in the Big 12 this season.

The 19th-ranked Wildcats (2-0, 1-0 Big 12) allowed 28 straight points to an offense that scored half that many against an FCS team a week earlier. But they also held Iowa State scoreless in the second half, and Waters led Kansas State on an 80-yard, game-winning drive in just 91 seconds.
