This is a neutral site game in name only, as the Bulldogs are clearly going to have the bigger following playing here in Seattle than Kansas State will in spite of the fact that it is a solid three or four hours of driving to get from Spokane to Seattle. This is the return trip for the Wildcats to the Apple State after Gonzaga played at the Sprint Center two years ago. K-State only has one blemish this year against a Michigan Wolverines teams that is clearly one of the best in the country. Of course, the rest of the schedule has been chock full of nothing. Gonzaga probably would have been favored by two touchdowns in this game if not for the fact that over the course of the last week and a half, it needed a buzzer-beater to take down the Washington State Cougars and were trumped by the Illinois Fighting Illini at home. We do think that there is bigger and better on the horizon for the Zags though, and all of that might come to a head this weekend. It’s high time for Head Coach Mark Few and the gang to put together a very convincing victory, and that’s exactly what will happen on Saturday night.
