Kansas State Wildcats: After moving to the top of the BCS rankings this week, Coach Bill Snyder and the 'Cats (10-0 straight-up, 8-1-1 against the spread) are looking for their fifth consecutive point-spread victory. Heisman Trophy favorite Collin Klein and the KSU offense had just enough to get past TCU last Saturday in Ft. Worth, scoring a 23-10 triumph with a season-low 256 yards of offense. The final was not as close as it might appear after the Wildcats held a 23-0 lead entering the fourth quarter, and they go from facing the nation's 21st-ranked defense in the Horned Frogs to a Baylor stop unit that is dead last (124th), allowing nearly 520 yards per game. K-State could be without WR Tyler Lockett (ankle) who is questionable for this matchup (click to check updated college football injury report), but another standout performance by Klein will likely lock up the Heisman for him. The Wildcats are 4-0 to the "under" on the road this season, but the "over" is 4-2 in the last six meetings in this series.
Baylor Bears: It has been a rough conference campaign for Coach Art Briles and the Bears (4-5 SU, 5-4 ATS) who began the year 3-0, but have since gone 1-5 on the Big 12 schedule. Baylor backers, however, are 4-2 ATS on the conference slate, their latest winning ticket coming last week in Oklahoma where the Bears fell 42-34 to a Sooners team favored by three touchdowns. There has been little wrong on the offensive end that finds the Bears second in the country in passing (367.7 yards per game) and seventh in scoring (42.7 points per game). The defense, however, has surrendered at least 35 points in six of the last seven games, and that doesn't bode well against a KSU squad that is eighth in the nation in scoring (42.2 ppg). Baylor has won its last two home matches with the Wildcats, and the last three overall in this series have finished above the total.
