K-State is the Only College Football Team Without an Interception This Season
With the college football season crossing the halfway mark, Kansas State has been one of the biggest surprises in the sport thus far. The Wildcats have shown significant upside this season and one of the main reasons for this is their lack of turnovers.
With quarterback Adrian Martinez at the helm, the Wildcats have yet to throw an interception as we enter Week 8 of the college football season. While K-State’s passing attack hasn’t been spectacular this season, the lack of turnovers has been a massive improvement and contributes to the program’s success to start off the year.

Not only is K-State the only team in the Big 12 with no interceptions thrown this season, but they are also the only team in the entire country with no interceptions thrown. Adrian Martinez is currently chasing Virginia quarterback Matt Blundin’s 1991 season as he totaled 135 completions on 224 attempts for 1902 yards, 19 touchdown passes, and zero interceptions.
Martinez’s lack of turnovers will be a growing story with every game the Wildcats play this season. Ahead of what is expected to be the Wildcat’s toughest game of the 2022 season, they sit in second place in the Big 12 right behind their Week 8 opponent. They meet the 7th-ranked TCU Horned Frogs this Saturday, October 22nd at 7:00 pm on the road in Fort Worth.
