Kansas State's Delton scores 68-yard TD on direct snap

  Kansas State quarterback Alex Delton recorded the longest run in KSU's bowl game history against UCLA.

It only took Kansas State quarterback Alex Delton one snap in the Cactus Bowl to record the longest rush in a bowl game in program history. After UCLA took a 3-0 lead in the first quarter of the Cactus Bowl, Delton received a direct snap – his first touch of the game – on 2nd-and-2 and ran virtually untouched 68 yards for a touchdown.
