TCU Horned Frogs vs Kansas State Wildcats Preview & Prediction
13 October, 2017, 11:19
Offensively, Kansas State football averages 36.8 points and 405.4 total yards (194.2 in passing and 211.2 in rushing) per game.
The all-time series between the Horned Frogs and Wildcats is tied at 5-5, with the road team winning this game the past two seasons.
The under is 4-1 in the Horned Frog's last five conference games and 6-2 in their last eight road contests. However, it didn't continue, and they lost to Vanderbilt.
Earlier this week, one Big 12 coach challenged the conference's representative on the College Football Playoff committee. Following a defeat of winless Baylor, K-State lost to Texas in double-overtime in its most recent game.
Facing the defense in practice has sharpened TCU's offensive play too.
That can't be repeated against mobile TCU quarterback Kenny Hill.
"We still have seven games - hopefully eight", Hill said. "It's a long way to go".
"We don't even try to really look at it like that".
"They didn't do anything that we thought they were going to do", Grier said. "But it definitely does feel good to get those wins". They knocked off Kansas State, 40-34. But this is probably the best team he's taken into Manhattan to play the Wildcats.
What's more special is the talent from that group on both sides of the ball, and the effect it has had on the senior quarterback.
The Frogs have now outrushed each of their five opponents this season by a per-game average of 220-104, and that's usually a good way to win a game and cover a spread.
The Frogs lead the league allowing 19.6 points per game, though that is 31st among FBS teams.
Hill has been a key for TCU. His 69.0 percent completion percentage is on pace to shatter school records. Apparently, the whole team is once again taking on the never say die personality of their coach Bill Snyder. The team's last such honor came six years ago when Hank Thorns was named preseason all-Mountain West. That is how it should be. Then you watch a few more plays and you can tell he has excellent speed. They're the clear frontrunners in the Big 12 after Oklahoma's shocking home loss to Iowa State. That's a lot of pressure for Gary Patterson's team to carry through the rest of the season.
It has a daunting remaining regular season schedule, which includes road games at Kansas State, suddenly formidable Iowa State, Oklahoma and Texas Tech. But the Wildcats will play as home 'dogs when they host the Frogs on Saturday afternoon. Jesse Ertz has started every game, but he came out of the Texas game with an undisclosed injury, and back-up Alex Delton lit the offense on fire.
Quarterback Sam Ehlinger threw for 380 yards on 30-of-50 passing while also throwing for two touchdowns and one interception.
Snyder said that Ertz is still the starter, but that could change. Sophomore Carter Stanley and junior transfer Peyton Bender combined for 256 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions on 23-of-43 passing.
"Alex has a strong arm".
Clearly, K-State will throw the ball far less if it's Delton who gets the call at quarterback.
One thing that intrigues me about this match-up is that both defenses play pretty good against the run.
A shocking day in the Big 12 has scrambled the league's outlook for the College Football Playoff and left us with a new, unlikely conference frontrunner. TCU also has realistic aspirations of reaching the College Football Playoff.
