We’re expecting to see a heck of a party atmosphere on Saturday night in the Little Apple, knowing that Kansas State is on the verge of a BCS bowl bid and a trip to the Fiesta Bowl. However, we really aren’t all that sure that the team is going to be able to beat such a big number against a Texas team that has a lot to prove and a lot to play for. The Longhorns were able to shut down QB Collin Klein last year, holding he and his teammates to just 121 total yards of offense. The truth of the matter is that this Texas defense hasn’t played as well this year as it did a campaign ago, and Klein and his mates are a lot more refined now than they were before. However, QB Case McCoy might be the shot in the arm that this team needs to be able to keep the ball moving. We think that the Wildcats are going to win this game, and there isn’t going to be all that much doubt about it in the end, but to cover such a huge number, especially in a series in which the Longhorns are really looking for some revenge after three straight losses, just doesn’t seem likely.
Texas @ Kansas State Pick: Texas Longhorns +10.5
Texas @ Kansas State Score Prediction: Kansas State 31 – Texas 24
