Pick

Kansas State comes into this game after three straight wins where they scored 38+ points and they are looking for a huge road victory here. Texas has won two games in a row, but they are without Quinn Ewers, which could be a big issue for them. The Longhorns defense is solid, but they are facing a very good Kansas State offensive attack. I don’t think this Texas offense will be able to keep up with Kansas State without Ewers, so I like Kansas State with the points here.
