Yin, Yang. It seems like most of the time K-State and Texas Tech are prancing through the minefields of the Big 12 hand-in-hand, with their inevitable clash ultimately saving one team’s season while ruining the other.
But for all the similarities between the two schools, always remember: we have grass. And hills. And trees.
Kansas State (4-4, 2-3 Big 12) visits the Texas Tech Red Raiders (4-4, 1-4 Big 12). Tech leads the all-time series, but a Wildcat win would even it at nine victories apiece. However, Tech’s 9-8 edge includes four wins over K-State before the arrival of Bill Snyder, and you can do the math from there. Snyder is 3-1 against the hairdo.
Tech opened as a three-point favorite, and that’s where the line still sits. The over is 63.5, so Vegas is looking at a 33-30 shootout or thereabouts. OddsShark predicts K-State will win outright, and that the over is doomed; they’re giving Tech their 33 (well, 32.4 to be exact), and giving K-State another touchdown.
Probably on a D.J. Reed something or other, right?
Saturday, November 4 at 11:00am CT, Jones AT&T Stadium (60,454) in Lubbock, Texas.
There are still quite a few seats available through the Tech box office, ranging from $55-85. The ready availability of tickets from the box office has crushed demand on the secondary market, where you can get upper level or end zone seats as low as $6, and there’s no shortage of those. You can get seats within the first 20 rows on the 40-yard line, K-State side, for $18 if you hurry, and for under $30 period. Average secondary ticket cost is right at $19.
What we’re saying is you can probably even afford to hop a flight, folks.
