    Collegefootballnews.com K-State game preview

    Boy, this preview just makes me want to devote my Saturday afternoon to this game! I realize ISU & KSU are struggling, but sheesh! At least they have the 'Clones coming out on top. Not sure what they were thinking with that spread though...

    Iowa State (3-5) at Kansas State (4-4)
    3:35 PM EST Saturday October 28th
    Why to Watch: This is as close to a bowl elimination game as it gets in late October. Iowa State has to win three of its final four games against KSU, Kansas, Colorado and Missouri, but is coming in winless in Big 12 play and on a three-game losing streak. It hasn't even been close in conference play so far failing to get closer than 14 points in any of the four losses. Kansas State might only need to win two of its final four, but it has to play Texas and the Colorado and Kansas games are on the road. This is a struggling team losing two straight to Nebraska and Missouri by a combined score of 62-24.
    Why Iowa State Might Win: Kansas State came up with a stunning three-minute flurry late in the fourth quarter to beat Oklahoma State, but other than that, its offense hasn't even been close. QB Josh Freeman went from struggling to awful, and there hasn't been any consistent scoring. It might not take more than 20 points to pull off the win, but ...
    Why Kansas State Might Win: ... if the KSU offense was ever going to explode, this would be the week. The Cyclone defense is awful ranking dead last in the Big 12 in scoring defense giving up 31 points per game and doing nothing to get to the quarterback. Freeman might be having problems, but he'll have plenty of time to work. On the flip side, the Wildcats are great at getting into the backfield and should be in QB Bret Meyer's face all game long. However ...
    Who to Watch: ... if Meyer gets any time, the middle of the field should be wide open for the deep ball all game long. KSU star safety Marcus Watts, the team's leader in interceptions, tried to gut it out with an injured hand, but he's now out for the year leaving a gaping void in leadership, special teams play, hitting and overall playmaking ability. Andrew Erker started the first four games of the season when Watts was trying to get over a hip injury, but there's a huge drop-off in talent.
    What Will Happen: Iowa State isn't any good, but Kansas State is a bit worse ... at the moment. The young Wildcats will be something special in the future; it just won't be this week. Meyer and the passing game will get back on track and simply outbomb KSU.
    CFN Prediction: Iowa State 28 ... Kansas State 20 ... Line: Texas -6.5 (?)
    Must See Rating: (5 skip the birth of your first born - 1 Flicka) ... 2

    Maybe what they are saying with the line is, "Even without stepping on the field with either team, Texas has a better chance of beating these teams than either one of them do beating each other."

    I think the line is trying to tell us that Texas would still win if both ISU AND KSU were on the same side playing against Texas at the same time.
