Deuce Vaughn leads the Wildcats in rushing with 371 rushing yards and 5 scores, while Joe Ervin has 131 rushing yards and Will Howard’s called his own number for a TD 3 times this season. Phillip Brooks leads K-State in receiving with 9 catches for 130 yards while Malik Knowles and Daniel Imatorbhebhe each logging 100+ receiving yards with the latter accounting for Kansas State’s only receiving touchdown this season. Defensively, Daniel Green leads Kansas State with 22 total tackles including 17 solo tackles while Khalid Duke has 2 of Kansas State’s 12 sacks and the Wildcats as a team have 4 interceptions this season.

Kansas State is 9-3 ATS in their last 12 road games and 12-4 ATS in their last 16 conference games while the under is 7-3 in their last 10 games following a win. Oklahoma State is 13-5 ATS in their last 18 games against a team with a winning record and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 conference games.
This is going to be a tough game as both of these teams are extremely talented and have some solid skill players. With that said, I like what Oklahoma state is doing this season, but I just can’t get to laying a TD with the Cowboys. A 3-4 point game I think is more of what we’re looking at here, so give me Kansas State and the points.
