1. The statistics say all things are equal except for...wait for it, wait for it...Special Teams. Both offenses have 300pts on the year, averaging 42+ ppg. Both defenses are stingy (TT allows 21.7ppg, KSU allows 16.1ppg). However in the OU game, TTU missed two FGs, with at least one of those blocked, and OU ran a Kickoff back. In all aspects on Special Teams the 'Cats have the opportunity to have a clear cut advantage. In order to win, they ought to take advantage of the advantage.
2. Does the broken record continue to spin? What I mean is, this comment is unoriginal, but KSU must continue to live up to their 'Snyderball' way of life. We say that about every game. Win the turnover battle and eliminate mistakes. Doege averages 1 INT per game, Ty Zimmerman is hungry. Also on the year TT has 2x the number of penalties as K-State.
3. Does the Bill rock off of its foundation? I anticipate this to be the most jacked up crowd of the year. If you're going, don't disappoint me. Last year had some great crowds. Baylor and Texas A&M come to mind, and A&M was a 48,000 crowd. Give me 50,000+ at least equal to the 2011 Baylor game form, and we ought to be in good shape.
4. Look for Bill's next wrinkle. No you can leave your binoculars at home, I'm not talking about his forehead. Instead, what little variation of the offense do we see this week? As long as it's well executed, we should continue to move the sticks, hopefully on pace like we have all year on third down.
