Bold predictions for No. 24 Texas vs. No. 13 Kansas State

A top-25 matchup between two Big 12 Conference foes is set to take place on Saturday.

No. 24 Texas travels to No. 13 Kansas State for an intriguing battle with conference title implications.

The Longhorns are in desperate need of a bounce-back win in Manhattan. Texas is coming off a 41-34 loss to a beat-up Oklahoma State squad. Steve Sarkisian must turn around his road woes as Texas’ head coach.

Texas’ last true road win came against TCU back in Oct. of 2021.

Kansas State enters this game on a high note. The Wildcats torched the same Oklahoma State team that beat Texas 48-0 last week. Backup quarterback Will Howard enjoyed a breakout performance, throwing four touchdowns in the blowout victory.

The winner of this game has an inside track on playing for the Big 12 championship game. Texas’ last conference title appearance was in 2018 while Kansas State last qualified back in 2003.

Here are five bold predictions for Texas’ road showdown vs. Kansas State this weekend.
