It isn’t quite do-or-die yet, but the loser of today’s game will be left with no room for error in their quest for a bowl bid, falling to six losses on the season.

The Game

The Kansas State Wildcats (3-5, 1-4 Big 12) go on the road to play the TCU Horned Frogs (3-5, 1-4 Big 12) in a battle at the bottom of the conference standings. TCU is 2-2 at home, while K-State is 0-3 on the road this year.

Previously

Last week K-State got run out of the stadium by Oklahoma, 51-14, while TCU managed to lose a close game at Kansas, 27-26, fumbling in the red zone in the fourth quarter while they were down by 3.

TCU leads the all-time series 6-5 after winning 26-6 in Manhattan last year. Since TCU joined the Big 12, road teams have won four out of six games, including K-State on the Wildcats’ last trip to Fort Worth.

Kickoff

The game kicks off at 2:30 p.m. CDT at Amon G. Carter Stadium (capacity 45,000) in Fort Worth, Texas.

Odds

Oddsmakers have TCU installed as a 9.5-point favorite, with an over/under of 46, suggesting an approximate final score of 26-16, TCU.

Video

Cory Provus (play-by-play) and Ben Leber (analyst) will call the game, shown nationally on FS1.

Audio

Wyatt Thompson (play-by-play), Stan Weber (analyst), and Matt Walters (sidelines) will call the game for the K-State Sports Network on terrestrial radio, Sirius Channel 105, XM Channel84, and the TuneIn app.

My Prediction

Sick of hearing that it is time for him to retire, Bill Snyder finds a weakness in TCU’s defense and exploits it early and often. By the time TCU coach Gary Patterson is able to plug the hole, K-State’s lead is too big to overcome. Wildcats win 30-21.
