K-State embarks on a mid-week trip to the banks of the Trinity River for a game they absolutely, positively, cannot afford to lose. It has been 402 days since K-State logged a Big 12 road win. That skid must stop. Now.
The game: Kansas State visits the TCU Horned Frogs. This will be K-State's first visit to the newly remodeled Schollmaier Arena but not their first trip to the building itself, formerly known as the Daniel-Meyer Coliseum. K-State has an 8-4 lead in the series, and a 3-1 edge in Fort Worth. That loss was suffered last February, a 69-55 drubbing which erased all the relief the previous weekend's upset of Oklahoma (K-State's last road win, as it happens) had generated. All seven Big 12 meetings between the two schools have pitted Bruce Weber against Trent Johnson; Weber has been superior to the tune of 5-2, both losses coming last year (in Fort Worth and in the Big 12 tournament).
Odds: K-State is a four-point favorite, with the total at 133.5; that's a 69-35 Wildcat Victory is Vegas has the right of it.
Tickets: Tickets are available at the TCU box office for $30.
Television: ESPN News at 7:00 CT with Allen Bestwick and Mark Wise.
Radio: K-State Sports Network, with Wyatt Thompson and Stan Weber. Also available is the TCU radio broadcast on satellite on Sirius 108/XM 200.
