    KSU GAME: Diminuitive - But Dangerous


    By HuskerLocker

    After Oklahoma's 42-30 win over Kansas State three weeks ago, OU coach Bob Stoops located KSU wide receiver Brandon Banks, put his arm around the diminutive Wildcat with the oversized helmet and asked him one question:

    You don't have any eligibility left, do you?

    Banks had just burned the Sooners for 351 total yards – 195 on kickoff returns alone – returning a kickoff for a touchdown. It was his fourth of the season, which leads the nation. Banks is apparently hard to avoid, as well, as he averages 3.27 returns per game – first among any kick returner in the nation's top 20.

    NU head coach Bo Pelini knows Banks' skills firsthand. He returned a kickoff for a touchdown vs. Nebraska last year in a 56-28 loss – at the time, it was the first in his career.

    The best defense, Pelini joked, is a “60-mile-an-hour wind” at the back of kickoff specialist Adi Kunalic, who's currently fourth in the nation in touchbacks. Short of that, Pelini said, the Huskers will have a plan for dealing with Banks “based on the weather conditions.”
