Why Kansas Will Win

Kansas State doesn't have Bijan Robinson.

Yeah, the Wildcat running game is amazing - and it does have Deuce Vaughn - but for the first time all season Kansas looked like … Kansas.

Texas got 243 rushing yards and four scores out of Robinson as part of the 427 the team came up with, but that's baked into the KU cake. It's just not that great against the run, but it usually overcomes it with its own offensive production.

But it's going to be about the running game.

Kansas State has 220 yards or more seven times. Kansas is 0-4 when allowing 260 yards or more, the Wildcats were able to get there three times, and …

What's Going To Happen

Get ready for the show.

Kansas will crank up the attack to make this a fun back-and-fourth fight, but the other side will always have an answer.

The Kansas State defense is good enough against the run, the team is among them best in the country in turnover margin, and is should all come together in the 14th straight win in the series.
