Tyler Lockett, Wide Receiver, Kansas State Wildcats (Defeated West Virginia Mountaineers 26-20)

10 Receptions for 196 Yards, One Punt Returned for a Touchdown, 321 Total Yards

All season long, Tyler Lockett has made a habit out of coming through in a big way for the Kansas State Wildcats. He had an epic catch that helped them hold on to beat the Iowa State Cyclones, he now has five 100-yard receiving games, and he has back-to-back games with 196 receiving yards.

But his performance Thursday night was just incredible. Morgantown is not an easy place to win ever, but when it’s against a West Virginia team this good and on a Thursday night, it can be very difficult. Lockett helped break the game open and take the crowd out early with his punt return giving a 17-3 lead to the Wildcats.

And as West Virginia inevitably fought back, Lockett was always there to make sure Kansas State responded. When the Mountaineers had made it 23-17 in the third quarter and Kansas State was faced with a 3rd and 9 in their own territory, Jake Waters, who was great as well, turned to Lockett again.

And Lockett came through with a 28-yard reception that put the Wildcats on the West Virginia 25 and in position to kick a field goal that would ultimately make it a two-score game, 26-17.

So not only did Lockett put up the big numbers. He came through in the big moments. And for that, he is a Blitz Points winner.
