Kansas State Season Odds
MANHATTAN, KS (TheSpread) – Kansas State hasn’t been far from being a national title contender in recent years. Will the 2015 season be the one that the Wildcats finally win it all?
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Kansas State has been given 150/1 odds to win the College Football Playoffs in this upcoming season. When it comes to contending for the Big 12 title, Kansas State is listed with odds of +1200 to win.
75-year-old Bill Snyder is still going strong as head coach of Kansas State. He has tallied an 187-94-1 overall record and a 109-71-1 record in conference play over 23 seasons as head coach of the Wildcats. K-State is coming off a 9-4 record in 2014 where it finished third in the Big 12. Kansas State last won the Big 12 title in the 2012 season.
The Wildcats got somewhat away from what they have been known for last season as their passing attack dominated their offense. They averaged 287.4 yards per game through the air, which ranked 17th in the nation. The offense posted 35.8 points per game while allowing just 23.2 points per contest. This year’s squad will be replacing the quarterback, Jake Waters, who threw for 3,501 yards while rushing for 484 in 2014. Junior Joe Hubener has some experience, throwing for 235 yards in limited action a year ago. Kansas State must also replace receivers Tyler Lockett and Curry Sexton, who combined for 2,574 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns in 2014.
Kansas State has a pretty light non-conference schedule, as it will face South Dakota, UTSA and Louisiana Tech. Conference play features road trips to Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas Tech and Kansas while the Wildcats get to host TCU, Oklahoma, Baylor, Iowa State and West Virginia.
