How to Watch: Kansas State football vs. UTSA

Wildcats seek to end nonconference schedule on a high note.

NCAA Football: Baylor at Texas-San Antonio Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

Nonconference play wraps up for K-State this weekend, with the Wildcats looking to pad their win total against an opponent padding their athletic department budget.

The Game

The Kansas State Wildcats (1-1, 0-0 Big 12) look to right the ship before the start of conference play as they face the UTSA Roadrunners (0-2, 0-0 Conference USA) after a frustrating first two weeks for both teams.


K-State lost a week ago at home, 31-10, against Mississippi State.

In their last action, the Roadrunners lost to Baylor, 37-20, last Saturday at home.

K-State and UTSA have played once before, when the Wildcats won 30-3 in 2015 at the Alamodome in San Antonio.


Kickoff is scheduled for 3 p.m. today at Bill Snyder Family Stadium (official capacity 50,000) in Manhattan, Kansas.


The consensus among oddsmakers is that K-State is roughly a 21.5-point favorite, with an over/under of 47. That translates to a projected score of around 34-13, K-State.


As of Friday night, single tickets for as little as $10 remained available from the athletic department.


Mark Followill, Brian Baldinger, and Lesley McCaslin will call the game on FSN.


Wyatt Thompson, Stan Weber, and Matt Walters with call the game for radio on the Kansas State Sports Network, as well as Sirius Channel 106, XM Channel 210, and the TuneIn app.

My Prediction

After getting pushed around by Mississippi State, K-State comes in motivated to show off its talent advantage. The offensive line plows the way to an excellent rushing performance and gives Skylar Thompson plenty of time to complete passes. K-State wins, 38-10.
