Texas Tech vs. Kansas State odds: Wildcats Favored By Eight

Matthew Holst

The No. 3 ranked Wildcats are a little more than a touchdown favorite over the upset minded No. 14 Texas Tech Red Raiders

Coming off a big win over the now No. 19 West Virginia Mountaineers in Morgantown, the No. 3 Kansas State Wildcats play at home for the first time in three weeks and find themselves installed as eight point favorites over the No. 14 Texas Tech Red Raiders.

Wildcats' senior quarterback Collin Klein continued his remarkable Heisman campaign against the Mountaineers, amassing seven touchdowns (three through the air and four rushing) and 323 yards passing after completing 19 of 21 pass attempts. Klein now has 24 total touchdowns on the season, including 14 on the ground.

Klein's Wildcats will be facing a Texas Tech squad who already have experience in the upset department. They shocked the very same Mountaineers less than two weeks ago with a 49-14 pounding in Lubbock. They followed up that performance with a 56-53 triple overtime thriller, triumphing over the TCU Horned Frogs. The Red Raiders are led by senior quarterback Seth Doege who threw for seven touchdowns in the win over TCU. He's tossed for 28 scores on the season and completes just over 70 percent of his passes.

A win for Kansas State would put them in the driver's seat for a Big 12 Conference title. A victory would put them a game and a half ahead of the Oklahoma Sooners who are taking the weekend off of conference play to take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
