Cats must convert red zone chances
70.6 = K-State's red zone offense in 2005. The Wildcats converted on 24-of-34 red-zone chances to rank 11th in the Big 12 Conference.
As previously pointed out, when K-State's offense got moving last season, it was tough to stop.
When the Wildcats were able to produce a drive of 50 yards or more, K-State scored on 87 percent (33-of-38) of those drives.

The Wildcats came away with points - whether it was a field goal or a touchdown - on just 24-of-34 trips inside the red zone.
