After their Week 1 loss at Stanford, the Wildcats will vie for their first win of the season after their bye week here in Week 3.
The opponent, Florida Atlantic, comes in after dropping to 1-1 as they were knocked around by the Miami Hurricanes.
Florida Atlantic Owls
The Owls struggled in Week 1, but managed to secure a win thanks to a lot of Southern Illinois mistakes.
Week 2 however, Miami made no mistakes. The Owls (+25) dropped one to the Hurricanes on the road 38-10, as their offense couldn’t get anything going.
Florida Atlantic managed just 214 yards of total offense, as their pass game contributed for 167 of those yards.
This week could be even more of a struggle, as the Owls get a Wildcats defense that slowed down Stanford back in Week 1.
Florida Atlantic will have to establish some sort of run game here, to control the tempo of the game which is something they certainly didn’t do last week.
Kansas State Wildcats
The Wildcats hung with the Cardinal all night long and even got within 6 points during the 4th quarter, but couldn’t get over the hump in what was eventually a 26-13 loss.
Kansas State saw many impressive things during the Week 1 loss and got the bye week to focus on getting their offensive production up.
Kansas State actually outgained the Cardinal in the loss 335-272, but it was a pair of interceptions and their inability to finish drives that costed them.
It was a different Kansas State look than what we’ve seen in the past, as they were a pass first offense. The Wildcats racked up 243 yards through the air and just 92 on the ground.
Expect them to have a similar style here, as they try to get QB Jesse Ertz a lot more attempts down field.
