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.
