The Kansas State Wildcats look for a 3-0 start to the 2015 campaign when the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs pay a visit.
A late Louisiana Tech rally came up just short in a 41-38 defeat at rival Western Kentucky in week two that dropped their record to 1-1. As expected this was an offensive show with both teams combining for almost 1,200 yards with the pass happy Hilltoppers throwing for 441 yards. On the flip side the Bulldogs could run and throw with quarterback Jeff Driskel completing 28-48 for 357 yards with a pair of scores and a pick. Trent Taylor and Paul Turner led the La Tech receiving corps with 228 yards on 16 receptions with a touchdown each while Kenneth Dixon was the workhorse on the ground with 168 yards and a pair of scoring runs.

The Kansas State Wildcats have been workmanlike in forging a 2-0 start to the season with great defense and an offense that scores when the opportunity is there. The Wildcats were at there best in a 30-3 win at Texas-San Antonio with the Roadrunners held to 229 yards and 14 first downs while the Wildcats totaled 418 and owned time of possession at over 35 minutes. Quarterback Joe Hubener gave KSU something of a dual threat with 243 passing yards on 12-23 while running for 58 yards and a score on 17 touches. Dalvin Warmack and Justin Silmon combined for 80 yards on eleven totes and were the meat of the Wildcats rushing attack while Winston Dimel and Andre Davis were the receivers of note with six catches for 153 yards.
The Bulldogs are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games after allowing more than 280 yards passing in their previous game and are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. loss while going 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games after accumulating more than 280 yards passing in their previous game. The Wildcats are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games and are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game while the under is 4-1 in Wildcats last 5 vs. CUSA. My feeling here is that Kansas State wins but Louisiana Tech is too dangerous for all the points…
