Our Prediction: Kansas State could have a problem at quarterback, as Jesse Ertz is expected to start but he'll also split snaps due to an injury. Meanwhile, Texas will have Shane Buechele under center after returning last week from a two-game absence due to a sprained ankle. Texas' defense seems to be rounding into shape, as the Longhorns have forced eight turnovers this season, including seven interceptions. Kansas State is 10-7 against Texas lifetime, but has struggled in Austin while going 3-6. I'm buying Texas coming off back-to-back covers.
