The Wildcats look to bounce back in their conference home opener after a rough loss a week ago.
Last week, K-State struggled to get its offense out of neutral, losing 26-13 on the road at Oklahoma State. Meanwhile, Baylor eked out a 23-21 home win over Iowa State.
K-State leads the series with Baylor 9-7, but Baylor won the 2018 iteration 37-34, with a field goal in the closing seconds breaking a tie at 34.
The Wildcats are slightly favored by the oddsmakers, at K-State -1.5. With a 48.5 over/under, that projects to approximately a 25-23 victory.
The game is scheduled to kick off at 2:30 p.m. Saturday at Bill Snyder Family Stadium (capacity 50,000) in Manhattan. The forecast calls for sun after showers and storms clear off late in the morning, with a high of about 71 degrees.
As of Friday night, a few tickets in the corners and upper level remain available through the athletic department, starting as low as $35.
ESPN2 will show the game, with Beth Mowins (play-by-play), Anthony Becht (analyst), and Rocky Boiman (sidelines) calling the action.
The K-State Sports Network’s A team of Wyatt Thompson (play-by-play), Stan Weber (analyst), and Matt Walters (sidelines) will call the game for radio. In addition to terrestrial radio, the game will be carried on Sirius channel 111, XM Channel 200, and the TuneIn app.
