The No. 15 Kansas State Wildcats welcome the North Texas Mean Green on Saturday in the third straight home game this season. The Wildcats have been dominant so far this season, besting Missouri State and Miami by a combined score of 103-22 and kicking off talk that Collin Klein could perhaps be a dark horse in the Heisman race this season.

Klein was named the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week after showcasing just how dangerous he is both through the air and on the ground, going 9-of-11 for 210 yards and rushing for three touchdowns and 71 yards against the Hurricanes.

The Wildcats have averaged 306 yards rushing per game so far this season, and along with an increasingly potent passing attack, present one of the tougher matchups for opposing defenses to deal with.

North Texas won last week against Texas Southern, 34-7, and present a dangerous rushing attack as well (214 yards per game average). However, the Mean Green should not pose much of a threat to K-State, if the team continues to build upon the first two weeks of the season.

Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. CT at Bill Snyder Family Football Stadium.
