No I just don't assume K-State blows cuz they aren't in the almighty SEC.

K State was a top 10 defense that year too in both YPG and PA (interesting to note you're so unbiased you'd fail to mention that) and it was the conference championship game in Kansas City. They finished the season ranked 8th (where LSU is currently ranked). White had more passing yards on fewer attempts with fewer turnovers against a team in nearly an identical spot.

Also many Heisman voters cast their ballot before that game since it was the Conference title game, which skewed the results further.That game DID cost White Heisman votes.
