Malik Knowles and Phillip Brooks have combined for 812 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns, while Kade Warner has 21 receptions.

The Longhorns are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games and 3-9 ATS in their last 12 conference games. The Wildcats are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The under is 10-4 in Longhorns last 14 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Wildcats last 5 home games. The Longhorns are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 meetings in Kansas State and 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 meetings.

The Texas Longhorns are the more talented team, and they’ve had an extra week to prepare for this game, so I can understand why they’d be labeled slight favorites. However, let’s give some props to the Kansas State Wildcats, a team that absolutely destroyed Oklahoma State and beat a top-10 Oklahoma team earlier. KSU is above average defensively and has the 11th best rushing attack in the country. I like what I’ve seen from Kansas State, especially last week. Give me the points.
