    [​IMG]Kansas State was the most likely team in the Big 12 to lose on opening weekend, if only because they played the best competition, UCLA, who went 7-6 last season.

    But thanks to Daniel Thomas' career-high 234 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries, "the Big 12 has a great chance to go undefeated on opening weekend," said Big 12 blogger David Ubben, knocking on wood.

    Quarterback Carson Coffman, who left the game briefly in the fourth quarter, returned to throw a touchdown that put the Wildcats up eight, but they gave up a quick score to UCLA on the ensuing drive. The Bruins couldn't convert the two point conversion, and K-State iced the game with a 35-yard touchdown run by Thomas when the Bruins stacked the box.

    Colorado avenged a loss to rival Colorado State earlier on Saturday, and each of the teams in Saturday's six night games should be heavily favored, with only Oklahoma State playing a BCS conference opponent, Washington State, who finished last in the Pac-10 last season.

    That leaves Texas Tech on Sunday, who would need to hold off SMU to complete the conference sweep.
