Kansas State hosts Oklahoma State at Bill Snyder Family Stadium today. Kickoff is scheduled for 3 PM and the game will be broadcast on FOX as well as streamed on affiliated services. As usual, these details and more are in the HOW TO WATCH post.

Both teams are coming into the game off a loss. For Kansas State, it was a debilitating loss to West Virginia, a game where nothing really seemed to work. For Oklahoma State, its championship calibre defense simply could not make up for all the mistakes against Texas, whether it was the four turnovers or the costly, momentum-sapping penalties

The Wildcats struggled in Morgantown. The offense—and especially freshman quarterback Will Howard—are mostly works in progress. To take down the Pokes, Kansas State will need to see much better performance from its offense. That seems less likely than it did a few weeks ago, so brace yourself. It’s going to be a rough game, and possibly a rough rest of the season.

Oklahoma State’s offense will be a challenge for the Wildcats’ defense. While Kansas State is generally playing well on the side of the ball, nobody has forgotten Chuba Hubbard running all over the Cats last season. Hubbard is playing well, and there’s no reason he can’t duplicate that feat in Manhattan.

But then again, it’s 2020 and nobody really cares, right?

Keeping this Slate short because I’m in the land of terrible Internet coverage (i.e. Wisconsin), but you all know the drill: Go Cats! Pound the stone! Win the dang day!
