MANHATTAN, Kan. — John Hubert ran for 120 yards and the go-ahead touchdown, and No. 16 Kansas State kept alive its chances for a share of the Big 12 championship with a 30-23 victory over Iowa State on Saturday.

Collin Klein ran for a touchdown and threw for another, and Anthony Cantele was perfect on three field-goal attempts, allowing the Wildcats (10-2, 7-2) to reach 10 wins for the first time since 2003, when they knocked off Oklahoma in the Big 12 title game.

The Wildcats need some help from the Sooners this time.

If No. 13 Oklahoma beats third-ranked Oklahoma State in Bedlam on Saturday night, the teams will finish in a three-way tie atop the conference and share the championship.

Jeff Woody ran for 85 yards and two touchdowns for the Cyclones (6-6, 3-6), who became bowl eligible for the second time under Paul Rhoads when they knocked off the Cowboys a couple weeks ago.
