The Kansas State Wildcats and TCU Horned Frogs meet Saturday in week 6 college football action at Amon G. Carter Stadium.
The Kansas State Wildcats look for their second road win to improve to 3-1 on the CFB season. The Kansas State Wildcats have won four of their last six road games. Skylar Thompson is completing 62.5 percent of his passes for 626 yards, four touchdowns and zero interceptions. Thompson and Will Howard have combined for five touchdown passes this season. Deuce Vaughn and Briley Moore have combined for 397 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Chabastin Taylor has eight receptions. The Kansas State Wildcats ground game is averaging 118.3 yards per contest, and Vaughn leads the way with 205 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Kansas State is allowing 30.3 points and 492.3 yards per game. Elijah Sullivan leads the Kansas State Wildcats with 21 tackles, Wyatt Hubert has two sacks and Jahron McPherson has two interceptions.
The TCU Horned Frogs look for their first home win to get a game above a .500 record. The TCU Horned Frogs have lost three straight home games. Max Duggan is completing 73.5 percent of his passes for 472 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. Duggan and Matthew Downing have combined for four touchdown passes this season. Taye Barber and Quentin Johnston have combined for 253 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Blair Conwright has five receptions. The TCU Horned Frogs ground game is averaging 162.5 yards per contest, and Max Duggan leads the way with 82 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, TCU is allowing 34 points and 405.5 yards per game. Garret Wallow leads the TCU Horned Frogs with 15 tackles, Parker Workman has one sack and La'Kendrick Van Zandt has one interception.
The Wildcats are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 conference games, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Horned Frogs are 7-15 ATS in their last 22 conference games and 8-22 ATS in their last 30 home games. The under is 9-3-1 in Wildcats last 13 games overall. The over is 9-3 in Horned Frogs last 12 games overall. The Wildcats are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The underdog is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
The Kansas State Wildcats have found their offense this season and already have an impressive win on the road against Oklahoma when the Sooners looked like national title contenders. TCU has been shaky out the gate, has lost three straight games at home dating back to last season and that defense doesn't look like Horned Frogs defense. TCU has given up 68 points through two games and they're 55th out of 74 teams when it come to stopping the running game. We also can't ignore that Kansas State beat TCU last season as 4.5-point underdogs. Both of these teams have had issues defensively and you can argue Kansas State is playing the better football overall.
Give me KSU and the points.
