Texas is able to cover
The defence of the Longhorns is among the strongest in the nation. T’Vondre Sweat, a 362-pound defensive tackle, leads Texas, which allows just 16.0 points per game, second in the conference and 15th nationally. The Longhorns limited BYU to just six points and 4.4 yards per play the previous week.
Furthermore, Xavier Worthy is a tremendous playmaker for Texas. Fresno, California native Worthy, a 6-foot-1 blazer, leads the conference in receiving yards per game (71.5). In addition, he leads the nation in punt return average (17.6 yards per return) and scored a touchdown last week against the Cougars after returning a punt 74 yards.Choose your team from this list.
Kansas State’s ability to cover
Over the past three games, the Wildcats’ offensive approach has changed. After switching to a two-quarterback system against Texas Tech on October 14th, Kansas State has been averaging 40.0 points and 472.0 yards per game, with senior Will Howard and rookie Avery Johnson at the positions. Johnson has five rushing touchdowns and two passing scores during that period, while Howard has thrown for five touchdowns without any interceptions.
The Texas offence, which has had terrible success in the red zone this season, also presents a challenge for the Wildcats. This season, the Longhorns have only scored 16 touchdowns in 33 red zone opportunities. They are 122nd in the nation with a red zone touchdown percentage of 48.5. This is encouraging for Kansas State’s defence, which ranks third in the nation with only six touchdowns allowed on 20 red zone opportunities (30.0%).Choose your team from this list.
