Who Might Not Play For Kansas State: RB Angelo Pease

Pease, didn’t travel with the team to Miami (FL) when the Wildcats played the Hurricanes, then sat out the second half against Baylor and did not play against Missouri.


Who Might Not Play for Texas Tech: CB Tre Porter

Starting cornerback, Porter, has been limited to special teams due to a hip injury.


 Key Storyline: Can Kansas State prove the critics wrong again with another win?

The Wildcats are defying the odds this year by starting out 5-0 on the season. The oddsmakers still don’t believe in the Wildcats, as they are a three point underdog this week. Kansas State will have their hands full trying to stop this high-powered Red Raiders passing attack. Shutting down their passing attack will eliminate any chances that Texas Tech has at scoring points. 


BCS Implications

If Kansas State can win this game it will position them right in the middle of the first BCS rankings when they are announced on Sunday.

For Texas Tech, a win against Kansas State won’t place them in the first rankings, but it will help if they are able to upset teams like Texas and Oklahoma, when they play them later on in the season.


Kansas State Player to Watch: QB Collin Klein

Klein has led this Kansas State offense in their perfect season so far. He’s been able to have a passer rating of 120.4 through those games, with 593 yards, six touchdowns and three interceptions.

Kansas State will have to score a lot of points in this game to keep up with this Red Raiders offense. If Klein has a big day, the Wildcats will continue their perfect season.


Texas Tech Player to Watch: QB Seth Doege

Seth has been on fire this year through five games. In those five games Doege has a QB Rating of 158.3 with 1706 yards, 17 touchdowns and just one interception. 

If Tech is going to pull of this big upset this week, he will be the focal point, leading this Red Raider offense down the field on a number of touchdown drives.


Key Matchup: Kansas State’s secondary vs. Seth Doege

Seth Doege and the Texas Tech passing game will put this Kansas State secondary to its biggest test this year. How will the Wildcats respond to an offense that does not stop going?

Kansas State just does not have the offensive fire power to keep up with Texas Tech. Tech will get the upset victory that they almost had against Texas A&M last week at home.


Prediction: Texas Tech 45, Kansas State 17
