The winless Baylor Bears and the Kansas State Wildcats meet up in Kansas in this Big 12 bout. I do not want to sound to optimistic about the Bears but, I do not believe they are as bad as advertised.
Although a winless team this team showed some real improvement against the Oklahoma Sooners and should give Kansas State a run for their money. Kansas State on the other hand has been very impressive through the first 3 games.
Baylor has found a quarterback in Zach Smith who has led the team in multiple scoring drives and has been a light on this bad Baylor team. The graduate transfer Anu Solomon is still going through the concussion protocol and will not play Saturday.
Baylor scored 41 points against a really good Oklahoma Sooner football team at home. We should see if they can be for real against a very good Kansas State team on the road.
The turnovers have been the killer for the Bears throwing 8 interceptions in the last 4 games which have killed scoring drives. If they can keep the ball on their side it should be a lot closer than a 3 score game.
Kansas Sate Wildcats
The Kansas State offense has been really bad through their three games. But, the best thing about the Wildcats though is their defense which has been one of the best defenses in the country.
Giving up only 13 points a game and only giving up 280 yards a game they have really stepped up down the stretch and been in every game they have played. They should roll over Baylor if they play like they have in the past.
A lot of points might be scored but I believe that Kansas State will really step up at home and show out for their fans. This might be one of the most underrated games of the weekend because it could be very unpredictable.

Kansas State should have their defense on display with the young Baylor quarterback at the center of it all. Although Baylor has been putting up a lot of points they will face a different animal on the road in Kansas.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Baylor -17
As much as I really like the Wildcats in this one, I just think Baylor is getting better each and every week. Baylor should put up way too many points for them not to overcome the 17 points that they are given.
The best thing to watch in this one is the defense from Kansas State and how they will play at home against a good spread offense. We should see two very underrated teams play on Saturday with a big 12 showdown on the way.
