The Kansas State Wildcats have a Texas trio to finish the regular season. Their run begins with the TCU Horned Frogs this Saturday in Fort Worth, Tex.
The No. 2 Wildcats have put together an impressive run of 19 wins and only three losses over the last two seasons, with the losses only to teams that were ranked in the top 10 at the time of the game. Coach Bill Snyder's latest conquest was a 44-30 win over No. 24 Oklahoma State. Still a statistical oddity, the Wildcats are ranked second in the BCS standings despite having the nation's No. 41 total offense and No. 36 total defense. Quarterback Collin Klein is what makes the offense run, completing 71% of his passes and throwing only two interceptions all year.
After Klein suffered a possible concussion against Oklahoma State, the Wildcats are hopeful he can play. In Klein's absence, Daniel Sams was 5-of-6 for 45 yards and rushed for 20 more yards, but his team scored only six points in 1.5 quarters while he was at the helm.
TCU will be playing the second of four straight ranked opponents, and returns home to Fort Worth after claiming a 39-38 double-overtime win at No. 21 West Virginia. The game marked TCU's second multiple overtime game of the year. Quarterback Trevone Boykin threw for 254 yards and two touchdowns as the Horned Frogs outgained the Mountaineers, 405-338. While the offense is down from past years, TCU's defense still ranks highly. Giving up just 97 rushing yards per game, the Horned Frogs rank eighth in rushing defense and 25th overall.
TCU holds the lead in the all-time series between the two schools at 3-2.
