AMES, Iowa (AP) — Brock Purdy passed for 236 yards and three touchdowns, and No. 17 Iowa State beat Kansas State 45-0 for its most lopsided win over the Wildcats in 77 years. Breece Hall was Iowa State’s leading rusher with 135 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries. The Cyclones hadn’t had such a wide winning margin against the Wildcats since they beat them 48-0 in 1943.
