||(9) Kansas State (9-2, 7-1 Big 12)||at||(6) Baylor (10-1, 7-1 Big 12)|
Time is ticking down until what may be one of the five most important football games ever played by the Kansas State Wildcats. Saturday night, the Wildcats trek to Waco to try and avenge a loss in what, by its impact, definitely was one of the top five. Gamdeay will be there. It's a spotlight, it's a showcase, and there are playoff implications fro the winner. Moreso if it's the bad guys, but still.
Obviously, you want to be watching.
The game: Kansas State (9-2, 7-1, 9/9/9) visits the Baylor Bears (10-1, 7-1, 6/5/5). K-State leads the series 7-4, including one win during the pre-Big 12 era. It's 5-3 under Bill Snyder, as Ron Prince split a pair with the Bears, and the series is even at 3-3 in Waco. Unfortunately, those three wins were all in the past; the three losses have been on the last three trips. It's K-State's longest losing streak at a Big 12 stadium.
Odds: Baylor is an 8-point favorite.
Kickoff: Saturday, December 6 at 6:45pm CT, McLane Stadium (45,140) in Waco, Texas.
