Kansas State QB ties Dobbs' mark for rushing touchdowns

Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein got a share of a record Friday night, but he didn’t get what he really wanted– a victory.

Klein scored his 27th rushing touchdown of the season for the 11th-ranked Wildcats, who fell 29-16 to No. 7 Arkansas in the Cotton Bowl at Cowboys Stadium, outside Dallas. That touchdown tied him with former Navy quarterback Ricky Dobbs, who set the mark for most touchdowns by a quarterback in the Football Bowl Subdivision two years ago.

Klein didn’t want the focus on his record. “It’s overshadowed by our ability as a group. We came up short,” he said after the game.

Dobbs’ 2009 season was magical: He ran for 1,204 yards and passed for 1,031. Navy finished 10-4 and in the top 25 after an impressive victory over Missouri in the Texas Bowl.

The scary part: Klein has another year of eligibility left. And with this being a quarterback-laden draft, you’d assume he’s going back to Manhattan, Kan.
