Let me start out by saying that I know both of these teams very well.  I go to every K State home game and I cheer for every team playing KU, minus OU.  With that being said, this is not a very difficult game to handicap.  Yes, I am a K Stater and I certainly don't want to jinx my cats, however, this is going to be a good ole fashion behind whoopin. 

Kansas State has held 4 teams to under an average of 93.3 yards per game thus far in the season.  Those teams have been Missouri State, Miami, North Texas, and Oklahoma.  I would put KU more on the level of North Texas and that is being nice.  KU has an average of 178.5 rushing yards per game with passing stats that are not good (191.5 passing against weak opponents).  If Kansas State stops the run then we completely shut down KU.  Should KSU shut down the run, then the blitz is on and turnovers are going to start to occur.  I see at least 3 picks for State.  Further, Crist has never been to Manhattan and experienced the hostile environment that we show when playing KU.  I think he will get an eye opening experience that he has not seen yet this season.  With that, I don't know how hostile it can get at Northern Illinois but I would put KSU's environment up against North Ill. any Saturday. 

One point that anyone can argue is the "Letdown" game.  Classic point but Snyder will absolutely not let his guys get down for this game.  This is a very big game for Snyder and he makes sure that he does not let off the gas when playing KU.  In other words, Snyder will run up the score on KU and has done it several times.  Skeptics may be concerned about back door covers late in the game.  Well, let me tell you that Kansas State has a very very good back up QB that has some wheels.  His name is Daniel Sams.  Sams will run the ball and probably end up scoring two running td's.  Thats right, I see Sams getting in the game for the whole fourth quarter and bumping that score up to 59 or 62 points. 

As your scrolling through your favorite games, stop and check out the KU vs. KSU game.  I think you will find a winner, winner, KU chicken dinner.

Oh yea, one more thing... 

Kansas is 1-13 SU in its last 14 games
Kansas is 3-12 ATS in its last 15 games on the road

Kansas State -24

Kansas 3 Kansas State 62

Added note:  I think this can go without saying but Collin "Optimus" Klein is going to run all over KU and the passing game is going to open up for a free for all.

Agree this is a bludgeoning.

I agree, I think KSU wins by at least 35 here.

Like I said, not interested in jinxing anything here but appears to be one of the better plays on the board from a non-bias perspective.

I like K-State big. Trying to make a statement every week. Move up in those rankings...

Plus Kansas is very weak.

This game has got to be rigged. With the way these two teams have played, how is the line only 24.5? Is this one of those games Vegas gives away free money, or is this the riggiest game on the board?
