Kansas State has gotten off to one of the worse starts in awhile, particularly do to having gone 1-6 away from Manhattan.  The good news for Kansas State is the Wildcats will be at home for this matchup.  Texas Tech is winless in true road games, having gone 0-2 to this point.  The Wildcats have one of the worse scoring offense's in the country, ranking 317th.  However, both defense's are legit, as both rank in the top 42 in scoring defense. With Kansas State having a weak offense and both defense's being stout, I'll take the under here.  Final score prediction, Kansas State will win and the total goes under, 61-58.
