Puzzling play call of the week

Kansas State handled Miami in Manhattan on Saturday 52-13, dominating in every aspect of the game.

On their first four possessions of the game, Kansas State puts points on the board. Three touchdowns and a field goal and really had no reason to think Miami was going to stop their offense the rest of the day. 

With just under five minutes left in the half, K-State forces a fumble and gets the ball on Miami's 20. The Wildcats drive it down to the 1 where they face 3rd and goal. Then comes the puzzling play call...

Take a look:

We actually really like the play design, just find the timing of the call puzzling. Perhaps in week 8 or 9, after having run the jump pass once or twice and having run Collin Klein up the middle for about 20 touchdowns earlier in the season...on a meaningful 3rd and 1...but in this game, at this time? Unnecessary?
