Texas Longhorns Game Notes

Texas junior S Caden Sterns opted out for the remainder of the 2020 season. He's declaring for the 2021 NFL Draft and will begin training for the pre-draft process immediately. Sterns (6'1/207), who posted a career-high 13 tackles in what turned to be his last college game, last Friday's 23-20 loss to Iowa State, posted 52 tackles, 1.5 TFL, one interception and three pass breakups in seven games this year. Sterns joined stud OT Samuel Cosmi in opting out following the loss to the Cyclones, which eliminated Texas from Big 12 title game contention. Sterns, the No. 19 overall prospect in the class of 2018, was the highest-ranked DB in 247Sports Composite history to sign with the Longhorns. He was first team All-Big 12, the Big 12 Defensive Freshman of the Year and a finalist for the Jim Thorpe Award in 2018 as a true frosh before a knee injury limited him to nine games as a soph. We presently consider Sterns a late-Day 2 or early Day-3 prospect who has the ability to crack the top-60 with a big pre-draft showing. Pro Football Network's Dalton Miller comps him to Grant Delpit.

Kansas State Wildcats Game Notes

Kansas State freshman QB Will Howard completed nine-of-18 passes for 88 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in Saturday's 32-31 loss to Baylor. It's not Howard's fault the Wildcats are still down their starting QB due to injury. Being the freshman who has to come in for the established veteran starter, which Howard has had to do for a month or so now, is a tough spot. Unfortunately, things do not look to be getting any easier for Howard with time. He continues to look lost, only really completing checkdowns and first-read throws available to him. Howard did flash some fancy feet with nine carries for 46 yards and a score, but that was just barely not enough in this one. Kansas State have now lost four in a row with Texas up next.

Texas vs. Kansas State Betting Prediction

The Longhorns are winless against the spread in their last six trips to Manhattan and are 0-3-1 against the number in their last four games versus the Wildcats overall.

The Longhorns are also an unprofitable 1-5-1 against the spread in their last seven games, are 0-3-1 against the number in their last four games as chalk and are 1-4-1 at the window in their last six games coming off a loss. Meanwhile, KSU is 12-3 against the spread in its last 15 conference games, has cashed in six of its last eight games overall and is a profitable 12-5 against the number in its last 17 home games.
