OUR PREDICTION: Kansas State has more problems right now than just at quarterback, where starter Jesse Ertz played parts of the game last Saturday versus Texas. Alex Delton came in and gave the Wildcats a spark on the ground (79 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries), but he completed just 2-of-5 passes for 30 yards. If Bill Snyder has to go back and forth between Ertz and Delton, that could spell trouble versus Gary Patterson's outstanding defense.

The other problem is Kansas State's defense, which took a big step backwards against Texas. The Wildcats allowed 546 yards to an offense led by a freshman quarterback making his third college start. Following the game, some K-State defenders admitted that they were prepared for Texas QB Sam Ehlinger and his speed. That's a bad sign for a defense that is about to face Kenny Hill and an offense that scored 131 points and nine touchdowns in its last three games.
