The Texas Christian Horned Frogs look to stay perfect with a win at the Kansas State Wildcats.
The Texas Christian offense has been lighting up scoreboards every Saturday and that trend continued in a 50-7 rout of visiting Texas to up their record to 5-0. This was over after 15 minutes with TCU up 30-0 on the way to a 604-313 yardage edge. While the Longhorns couldn’t move the ball, TCU dis as they pleased with Trevone Boykin throwing for 332 yards and five touchdowns with KaVontae Turpin grabbing six balls for 138 yards and four TD’s while Josh Doctson logged seven receptions for 129 yards and another two TD’s. Aaron Green, Trevorris Johnson and Boykin formed a solid trio for Texas Christian on the ground with 187 yards on 30 carries.
The Kansas State Wildcats have been proving to be a handful offensively although the defensive side of the football has experienced some lapses. We saw both trends come in to play in a 36-34 defeat at Oklahoma State in week five capped off by 37 yard field goal by the Cowboys with 32 seconds remaining. OSU won the yardage battle 490-351 with KSU looking average in most areas. The Wildcats lost quarterback Joe Hubener to a head injury with just nine throws and 85 yards under his belt but Kody Cook came on to throw for 122 yards and a pair of touchdowns with Charles Jones snagging a 72 yard pass. Kansas State didn’t run the ball well with Cook totaling 87 yards on 21 tries and a score while Justin Silmon ran for 50 yards and a TD on 15 totes.
The Horned Frogs are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games in October and are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games after accumulating more than 450 total yards in their previous game while going 9-2 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The over is 6-1 in Wildcats last 7 home games vs. a team with a winning road record and is 5-1 in Wildcats last 6 games after allowing more than 280 yards passing in their previous game while the Wildcats are 22-5 ATS in their last 27 games after allowing more than 280 yards passing in their previous game. This opened at under a TD and is now at ten points which is far to many to ignore for me…
