Texas vs. Kansas State 2012: TV schedule, game time, spread and more

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE

The Wildcats have a chance to win their second Big 12 championship in school history with a victory over the Longhorns on Saturday.

While Kansas State's chance at a national title and Collin Klein's best shot at the Heisman went up in smoke in their loss to Baylor two weeks ago, the Wildcats still have a lot to play for in the final week of the regular season.

With a victory over Texas on Saturday, Kansas State would win their second Big 12 title under Bill Snyder and make only their second trip to a BCS bowl game.

The Wildcats are heavy -11.5 point home favorites over the Longhorns, one of the most disappointing teams in the country.

Despite a wealth of talent on the defensive side of the ball, Texas has had an unbelievably weak run defense all season, culminating in an ugly 20-13 loss to TCU on Thanksgiving where the Frogs only attempted 10 passes all game.

To make matters worse, the Longhorns will be without injured starting QB David Ash when they travel to Manhattan and will turn to backup QB Case McCoy, whose lack of arm strength has made him a sitting duck against most Big 12 defenses.

For Kansas State, a nationally televised game against a marquee program that is struggling mightily could be the perfect tonic to get the bad taste of their loss to the Bears out of their mouths.

The game will be broadcast on ABC at 7:00 PM Central on Saturday.
