Kansas State will not compete for the BCS Championship. On Saturday they will try to defeat the Texas Longhorns to earn at-least a share of the Big 12 Championship. Should Oklahoma lose earlier in the day against TCU then they will claim the title solely.
For Texas it has been a rough season filled with questions about the status of Mack Brown and a defense who struggled to stop virtually anyone for much of the season. They are playing for pride and a better bowl destination.
So who is favored in the Texas Longhorns and Kansas State Jayhawks game? Kansas State ranges from a 10.5 to an 11.5 point favorite in this game. Most places have the over/under or total points set at 63.
Collin Klein will have his last chance to impress Heisman Trophy voters. He will want to distance himself from his poor performance against Baylor two weeks ago which knocked Kansas out of a possible BCS title game. His prospects for putting up a big day are promising against Texas who has allowed 260.5 yards though the air and 183.5 yards on the ground for a total of 28.3 points allowed per game.
The Longhorns will have Case McCoy at quarterback as David Ash is out with a rib injury. The keys for Texas winning rests on the defense in this one. Texas allowed an average of 35 points its first seven games. It has allowed 16.5 over its past four games.

The game tomorrow evening will be tough for the Longhorns as they travel to enemy territory, in Manhattan, Kansas. The Longhorns come into the game as underdogs and will be at an even bigger disadvantage without starting quarterback David Ash. Even though Ash had a terrible game last week, I’d still feel better...
What a season it was and there is still one game to go. That game might not be in BCS championship that was within Kansas State's grasp just a few weeks ago, but that shouldn't diminish what the Wildcats accomplished in 2012. The Wildcats captured their share of the Big 12 title by beating Texas, 42-24, Saturday night. It was the Wildcats second Big 12 title and capped an...
This week it's not a team, a player, an offense or a defense but an entire conference that has seized the No. 1 spot.
1. The ACC
It's not bad enough that the ACC somehow cannot keep Maryland from leaving. The on-the-field performance was even worse. Let's recap:
