College Football Predictions: Kansas State Picked Over Miami By ESPN

David Ubben's latest predictions for week 2 in college football are out over at ESPN, and the Big 12 blogger believes that Kansas State is going to once again defeat Miami to surge early in the season. That's good news for K-State fans who hope that Bill Snyder can once again work against preseason expectations.

Miami presents the season's first respectable opponent for the Wildcats, so it will be an interesting game to watch -- one that should be close given the playmakers on both sides. Still Ubben believes K-State will win 27-20.

Ubben writes, "Miami's offense looked solid in Week 1, but Kansas State is much better than BC. I'm not a big believer in Stephen Morris -- or the Hurricane defensive line's ability to slow Kansas State's running game. Collin Klein has to log a whole lot more than the 12 carries he got last week, but the Wildcats muscle out another win, and Klein tops 100 yards rushing."

Kansas State Vs. Miami: Bill Snyder Focused On Duke Johnson

Miami Hurricanes freshman running back Duke Johnson received his fair share of national attention following his breakout debut this past weekend and apparently Kansas State head coach Billy Snyder was one of those people watching.

Here's what Snyder had to say about Johnson in Tuesday's press conference:

"He's a tremendously talented little player. He has tremendous speed, which is what most people would identify him as someone who runs extremely fast. I think he is a very talented running back in regards to having good vision and being able to know where the holes open up. He has good movement, so he can move laterally as well as straight ahead. He has good quickness to go along with his speed, and I think that he is perhaps probably growing as a receiver as well. They utilize him a lot of different ways, so that tells me he can do a lot of different things."

While these are undoubtedly quite flattering words, what Snyder had to say isn't exactly a secret to anyone who watched Johnson rack up 135 yards and two touchdowns on just seven carries in last Saturday's 41-32 victory over Boston College.

The real question that fans are wondering though is how Snyder and his 21st-ranked Wildcats will stop the ACC rookie of the week. Then again, if they're looking for inspiration, perhaps they should just go re-watch last season's 28-24 victory over the Hurricanes in which Kansas State's defense stood strong to prevent a late comeback attempt by Miami.

Well, it's either that or outscore them by putting up another 50+ point game for the second straight week.
