Charles Jones ran for three touchdowns, Tyler Lockett returned a punt for another score and No. 25 Kansas State romped to a 58-28 victory over UTEP on Saturday.
DeMarcus Robinson and Jake Waters also had touchdown runs, and Waters threw for 209 yards and another score as the Wildcats (3-1) finished non-conference play by taking out their frustrations from a close loss to fifth-ranked Auburn on the hapless Miners.
UTEP (2-2) managed one first down and 23 yards of offense in the first half, when Kansas State raced to a 31-0 lead. Running back Aaron Jones, the nation's second-leading rusher, was held to 47 yards — all but nine of them after halftime.
Jameil Showers threw four TD passes for the Miners, all with the game well out of reach.
