Two high scoring offenses led by two possible Heisman Trophy candidate quarterbacks meet on the field in Manhattan, Kan., Oct. 27.
It's likely this game could be viewed by Heisman Trophy voters down the line as a reason to vote for either Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein or Texas Tech QB Seth Doege.
Klein has to be considered a front-runner, particularly after his four-touchdown performance (one in the air, three on the ground) in the Wildcats 55-14 dismantling of West Virginia Oct. 20.
But Doege is putting up huge numbers for the Red Raiders (6-1, 3-1 Big 12). He has 28 touchdown passes, and threw six in Texas Tech's own whipping of West Virginia. He beat that with seven in Tech's three overtime 56-53 win over TCU Oct. 20.
Both had big success against West Virginia, both are averaging 49.2 points a game on offense.
The story of this game may be the Wildcats ability on defense (16.4 points a game, 14th in the nation). For the amount of points K-State scores, they're able to limit them as well. The Red Raiders have shown some defense, but that could be an area of advantage for the Wildcats.
K-State is an eight-point favorite heading into the game.
Fox has the broadcast and kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. CT Oct. 27.
