Kansas State Wildcats vs. Kansas Jayhawks
Bill Snyder has his 12th-ranked Wildcats playing tremendous ball, as they have won all six of their games to this points in the season. They have proven more than capable of winning close contests, and last weekend they bested Texas Tech on the road by a 41-34 final. That triumph lifted Kansas State to 3-0 in Big 12 action, and the club is quietly keeping pace with the Oklahoma Sooners and Oklahoma State Cowboys whom it will face in succession following this weekend’s affair.
Since opening the season with back-to-back wins over inferior competition, Turner Gill’s Kansas squad has suffered four consecutive defeats. The last two outings have been ugly, as a 70-28 loss to Oklahoma State was followed by last weekend’s 47-17 home beating at the hands of Oklahoma. Kansas owns a 65-38-5 series leas over Kansas State, but the Wildcats crushed the Jayhawks last season by a 59-7 final in Lawrence.
Both team with prolific offenses. Look for a slugfest with the points to just explode all game long.
