Kansas State vs TCU
When: Saturday November 10, 7:00 p.m.
Where: Amon Carter Stadium
If Collin Klein can play a full game, Kansas State should be able to survive a tough road game at TCU. Regardless of who is at quarterback for Kansas State, they will have to throw the ball successfully to open up the running game. The Wildcats are in the middle of a huge title chase and can’t afford to slip up here.
TCU has had a pretty good season, but it was somewhat derailed when Casey Pachall succumbed to substance abuse and entered rehab. They have moved on with the future quarterback, Trevone Boykin. They are under 500 since he took over, but they’ll have a chance to make amends with a big time upset victory.
There’s a chance we will find out if it is all about Collin Klein. Whether it is a concussion, or a wrist injury, there is some speculation if Collin Klein can play on Saturday. This is the perfect time for the Wildcats to step offensively against a rugged run defense. If Collin Klein is rendered useless on Saturday, expect a lot of wildcat formations by the Wildcats. They’ll figure out some way to move the ball.
The defense has a chance to cement its legacy with a great performance on Saturday as well. They’ll have plenty of chances to make some big plays and create turnovers. The defensive backs have great hands and nice ability to take it the other way. They will have a tough time with the wide receiver, Josh Boyce.
Trevone Boykin has had his ups and downs in the first month as a starter, but there have been plenty of great moments. Last week he provided a game tying 94 yard pass, and directed TCU to a one point overtime win. He must cut down on his interceptions against the opportunistic
Kansas State defense. TCU has to play a clean game overall to be in contention.
Defensively, no matter who is in at quarterback, they’ll have to stop the run. That is the strength of the defense, so this game might come down to how well they defend the pass. Even if Collin Klein can’t go, TCU must not relax on Kansas State’s offensive capacity.
When it’s all said and done, Kansas State’s defense will drive the bus to victory. They’ll be able to slow down another good offense along the way. TCU however, will not go down quietly, but expect Kansas State to be 10-0 after Saturday.
