The Kansas State Wildcats and Texas San Antonio Roadrunners meet Saturday at the Alamodome.
The Kansas State Wildcats are coming off a 34-0 victory over South Dakota. Joe Hubener is completing 50 percent of his passes for 147 yards, one touchdown and zero interceptions. Hubener now has two career touchdowns, and they both came on week 1. Dominique Heath and Kody Cook have combined for more than 90 receiving yards and Deante Burton has a touchdown reception. The Kansas State Wildcats ground game is averaging 185 yards per contest, and Justin Silmon leads the way with 51 yards on six carries. Defensively, Kansas State is allowing zero points and 266 yards per game. Elijah Lee leads the Wildcats with six tackles, Davis Clark has two tackles for loss and Marquel Bryant has a sack. Dante Barnett is questionable with a shoulder injury.
The Texas San Antonio Roadrunners are coming off a 42-32 loss to Arizona. Blake Bogenschutz is completing 58.1 percent of his passes for 332 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.

The Wildcats are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a S.U. win and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games on grass. The Roadrunners are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 non-conference games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall.
The Texas San Antonio Roadrunners have been improving their program over the years and thrive off of competing against the big boys. The Roadrunners just hung with Arizona, and they beat a good Houston team last season on the road. Texas San Antonio can play and will give Kansas State all it can handle.
I like the points here.
