After having a problem holding onto the ball early in the year, wide receiver Brandon Banks has regained his role as Kansas State's punt returner.

Banks has seen a sharp drop off in touchdowns this season.  Banks had nine touchdown receptions in 2008, but only one so far in 2009.  Maybe he can find paydirt returning kicks.

Kansas State wide receiver Brandon Banks caught three passes for 90 yards in Saturday's game. 

The impressive - and even record-tying - mark of Banks' day came as he returned two kickoffs for touchdowns, just the 12th man in NCAA history to achieve this feat.  This gave him over 300 all-purpose yards on the day.

In an interview with ESPN's Tim Griffin, Kansas State wide receiver Brandon Banks says his role may change. "Hopefully, I'll be a big part of the offense, but truthfully, I really don't know what I will be doing," Banks said. "I know I'll touch the ball more than last year."

With a larger emphasis put on the run game under returning head coach Bill Snyder, look for Banks to be used more in the run game with direct snaps or end-arounds.
