TCU Horned Frogs vs. Kansas State Wildcats Prediction

Kansas State stunned Oklahoma after losing to Tulane the week before in the middle of September. Since losing to Tulane, the Wildcats have won three straight games against Oklahoma, Texas Tech, and Iowa State.

Those are quality wins for the resume. But that Oklahoma win doesn't look as pretty as it did on September 24.

Either way, Kansas State has averaged over 400 yards of offense with 28.7 points per game. The offense is led by Adrian Martinez, who has thrown four touchdowns without an interception. Martinez has done even more damage on the ground and running back Deuce Vaughn, who averaged 5.5 yards per carry on 120 attempts with three touchdowns.

The Kansas State offensive line hasn't been great in pass protection but has done better in the run game.

Meanwhile, the Wildcats have played tremendous defense, especially in the secondary. Kansas State has allowed 354.5 yards per game but just 221.7 yards per game in the air. The run defense has also played well, and the pass rush has been effective.

Meanwhile, TCU's offense is a juggernaut. The Horned Frogs have averaged 526.7 yards per game, with nearly 300 coming in the air and the other 230 coming on the ground.

Max Duggan has been tremendous for the Horned Frogs, with 16 passing touchdowns and just one interception. He's in the top 10 in QBR with an 87.1 number.

The running game has also been elite behind Kendre Miller, who has rushed for 6.4 yards per carry and has eight touchdowns on just 91 attempts.

The defense for TCU is slightly worse than Kansas State, but its offense makes up for it. Anyway, the pass rush for TCU is ineffective, but the run defense has been great. The Horned Frogs have also been able to limit missed tackles and continue to play well in the secondary.

Last week we saw TCU struggle offensively throughout the entire first half against Oklahoma State. Eventually, the Horned Frogs tied up the game and sent it to overtime, scoring 14 points in the game's final quarter.

The TCU offense always finds a way. I'll back the Horned Frogs to keep the undefeated season alive against the spread.
