The TCU Horned Frogs and the Kansas State Wildcats are set to square off in a Big 12 matchup at 3:30 p.m. ET Oct. 30 at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. K-State will be strutting in after a win while the Horned Frogs will be stumbling in from a loss.

TCU might have drawn first blood against the West Virginia Mountaineers last week, but it was West Virginia who got the last laugh. TCU came up short against West Virginia, falling 29-17. No one had a standout game offensively for TCU, but they got one touchdown from WR Taye Barber.

The Wildcats can thank their lucky stars for their victory over the Texas Tech Red Raiders last week. The final score was a hard-fought 25-24. The victory came about thanks to a strong surge after the first quarter to overcome a 14 to nothing deficit. K-State’s RB Deuce Vaughn did his thing and punched in two rushing touchdowns in addition to snatching one receiving TD.

TCU is expected to lose this next one by 3.5. Those betting on them against the spread shouldn’t have high expectations for them since the team is 0-2 ATS when expected to lose.

TCU is now 3-4 while K-State sits at a mirror-image 4-3. Two defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Horned Frogs are 218th worst in the nation in rushing touchdowns allowed, with 13 on the season. The Wildcats have experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the contest with the 178th most passing yards allowed per game in the nation, having given up 248.2 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
