Kansas State Wildcats

Kansas State HC Bill Synder indicated that junior QB Alex Delton isn't likely to start Saturday against Baylor. Snyder said Skylar Thompson has a "step up" on Delton after Thompson outplayed Delton in the Texas game, Delton's first start of the year. We should also monitor Delton's status this week after he was seen noticeably limping late in the second quarter against the Longhorns. Delton was then benched for Thompson in the second half and Thompson nearly led a come-from-behind victory. "The anticipation is both of them will play (if healthy)," Snyder said. "I think both of them are very similar. A lot of people say one can throw and one can run and each one can’t do the other, but that is not an accurate assessment. Both of them have the ability to do both ... Both are still growing. They are still young and still growing. They are both still making improvements."

Baylor Bears

Baylor sophomore QB Charlie Brewer is dealing with soreness, but was able to practice on Monday. Brewer was hammered on several play against Oklahoma, and also threw a whopping 60 passes in the blowout loss to the Sooners. Assuming that something unforeseen doesn't take place, he should be back under center for Saturday's contest against Kansas State.

Betting Trends

Kansas State

The underdog is 7-1 against the spread in the last eight games between these two teams.

Baylor

The home team is 5-2 at the betting window in the last seven meetings between these two teams.

Prediction

The Wildcats have struggled offensively, scoring just 20 points in consecutive losses to open up Big 12 play. That said, Baylor is also prone to give up the big play defensively and the Bears fell to the Wildcats a year ago in Manhattan. I’m taking the points with Kansas State, which should play well defensively to give the Wildcats a shot for the upset.

College Football Prediction: Kansas State Wildcats +4.5
