The famous Kansas State vs Kansas rivalry bleeds fresh blood today. The Kansas State Wildcats are in a much better position than the one the Kansas Jayhawks are in, that is for sure. Still, the match will be interesting to witness.
The Kansas State Wildcats are 3-4 (1-3 in conference). This might not be a good overall score, but the team is as solid as it gets. In fact, the Wildcats are one of the more powerful teams this season. They are averaging 32.1 points per game. On the other hand, they are allowing just 24.0 points per game. Their decent offense coupled with a good defense ensures that weaker teams can’t get through them at all.
Their opponents this time are exactly that: weaker opponents that won’t be getting through.
Jesse Ertz leads the team in passing yards. He has 7 touchdowns and 3 interceptions for 930 yards. Alex Barnes leads the team in rushing yards with 414 yards on 69 carries along with 3 touchdowns. Further, Dalton Schoen leads the team in receiving yards with 14 receptions and 3 touchdowns at 325 yards.
The Kansas Jayhawks are 1-6 so far into the season. They have lost all matches in the conference. Peyton Bender has been performing well, however. He has 1,429 yards with 8 touchdowns and 9 interceptions.
The Jayhawks are scoring only 21.1 points per game. Their average of allowing yards is also poor at 44.6. Usually, a team’s defense can be considered weak if it’s allowing around 30 yards per game against typical teams. However, the Jayhawks are allowing a whopping 44.6. This is something the Wildcats will take advantage of with their offense.
Surely, the chances of the Jayhawks winning the game are extremely slim. But it will be an interesting match if they can amount up to be some sort of a challenge at least.
