The #11 Baylor Bears are on the road this weekend as they travel to Manhattan to clash with the Kansas State Wildcats. Despite their high ranking oddsmakers have Kansas State as slight favorites.
It would seem as if oddsmakers won’t let them live down that road loss to TCU a couple weeks ago. They definitely made up for it by bouncing back with a 27-14 victory over Oklahoma a week ago.
All Kansas State has been doing is winning in recent outings. Their 34-17 blowout victory over West Virginia last week marked their fourth consecutive win.
Baylor grabbed their biggest win of the last couple years last week as the Bears knocked off Big Ten frontrunner Oklahoma 27-14 at home. Baylor held a slim 10-7 lead entering the 4th quarter but outscored the Sooners 17-7 to pull away.
Quarterback Gerry Bohanon used his dual threat abilities well in this game and got it done in the air and on the ground. Bohanon threw for 117 yards and ran for another 107 yards along with 3 total touchdown. Abram Smith was solid in the running game and finished with 20 carries for 148 yards.
The Bears are gashing teams for an average 238.1 rushing yards per game this season. However, everyone knows what happened the last time they ran into a legitimate run-stuffing opponent in Oklahoma State. Baylor ending up fizzling out on offense and falling in defeat 24-14.
Quarterback Gerry Bohanon would be in a rough spot if tasked to throw against a Kansas State defense that’s a bit opportunistic. The last thing the Bears need is their quarterback feeling pressured to force throws downfield.
Baylor is averaging 35.4 points per game this season, while limiting opponents to only 19.9 points on defense.
Kansas State Wildcats
Kansas State has won their last 3 games by a combined 61 points. Most recently, the Wildcats dominated at home 34-17 over West Virginia. Deuce Vaughn had a productive day on the ground and finished with 25 carries for 121 yards and a touchdown.
The Wildcats will be at home on a four-game winning streak, and they’re actually one of the few teams that match up really well with the Bears. They can shut down the rushing attack, and their defense is also averaging the second-most sacks in the conference.
Kansas State isn’t putting up gaudy offensive numbers by any stretch, which means they’ll need to make it ugly with the Bears. They need to turn this game into a defensive slugfest predicated around getting stops and chewing up the clock to win the battle for time of possession.

4* Free Week 12 NCAA Betting Pick: Baylor ML & Over 50.5
Baylor is coming off their biggest win of the season and are ranked at #11 coming into this week. So why are they the underdog?
The Bears are a tough grind it out team that leans on their defense and running game. Bohanon is a dual threat quarterback that can get it done either way which we saw from him last week against Oklahoma.
This line is disrespectful for Baylor and they’ll win this game but Kansas State will push them to the brink.
