An undefeated record is on the line as the No. 17 Kansas State Wildcats face the No. 13 TCU Horned Frogs in Fort Worth, TX on Saturday, October 22 at 8:00 p.m. ET. The game is scheduled to air on TBA.
Kansas State (5-1, 3-0 Big 12) survived an upset bid against Iowa State in the last time we saw the Wildcats take the field. The Cyclones nearly pulled off the winning effort, but a 30-yard field goal by Chris Tennant with 7:14 left in the fourth quarter provided a lead that Kansas State would not surrender. Adrian Martinez threw for 246 yards and added 77 yards on the ground to help propel the Wildcats to 5-1 overall and remain undefeated in conference play.
TCU (6-0, 3-0 Big 12) protected their undefeated record as they rallied for a double-overtime win over Oklahoma State. Kendre Miller, who finished with 104 rushing yards and two scores, scored the go-ahead touchdown on a two-yard run in the second overtime. The Horned Frogs topped the Cowboys 43-40 in a battle of the Big 12’s last two undefeated teams. TCU should expect to get a boost in the polls as it prepares for Kansas State, which is coming off a bye.
