How to Watch: Kansas State at Texas Tech

A crucial stretch begins for the beleaguered Wildcats.

Everything is terrible right now, but K-State’s got an opportunity to right the ship over the next few weeks. Mission One: win Saturday.

The Game

The Kansas State Wildcats (3-3, 0-3 Big 12) visit the Texas Tech Red Raiders (5-2, 2-2).

K-State’s defense has been a sieve for a month now, and Tech’s offense is not exactly the prescription to treat the malady. But Tech’s defense is also porous, especially against the run, and that will open up more opportunities for Skylar Thompson to also do some damage through the air.

The Cats have won the last five in this series and nine of the last ten; that’s staked K-State to a 12-9 series lead — 12-6 during the Big 12 era — and erased the bizarre bewitchment Mike Leach had over Bill Snyder.

Kickoff

Saturday, October 23, 11:00am CT at Jones AT&T Stadium (60,454) in Lubbock, Texas. It should be around 70 degrees under partly cloudy skies at kickoff, warming to the mid eighties by game’s end.

Odds

K-State opened as a one-point road favorite despite their troubles, and that’s where the line remains according to DraftKings. Vegas is expecting some points, as the total is set at 60.5, implying a 31-30 win for the Wildcats.

Television

The game will air on FS1 with Tim Brando and Spencer Tillman on the call, so steel yourselves.

Radio

As always, Wyatt Thompson, Stan Weber, and Matt Walters will be on hand on the K-State Sports Network as well as via satellite on Sirius 994/XM 384/SXM App 974.

Internet Streaming

Available via the FOX Sports app and website if you’re a qualifying cable or satellite subscriber. Live stats provided by Texas Tech via Sidearm.
