Missouri State Bears
The Missouri State Bears have their sites set on another victory to keep them undefeated on the year. They’ve outlasted their first two opponents to the impressive tune of 85-22.
Quarterback Breck Ruddick has tossed the pigskin around for a completion rate of 65.4 percent, and he’s gone for a total of 424 yards, four touchdowns and one interception so far on the year.
If Missouri State is going to have a chance in this one, it needs its man behind center to continue his solid play through the air to complete the upset. And don’t kid yourself about this one — a win would absolutely be an upset.
The guys helping Ruddick out are Malik Earl and Deion Holliman at wide receiver, who have combined for 214 yards through the air and one touchdown.
On the other side of the ball, the Bears have given up just 11 points and 272 yards per game.
Dylan Cole is Missouri State’s leader on defense with 19 tackles.
Kansas State Wildcats
The Kansas State Wildcats have started this season .500, but they’ll be heavy favorites in this one to land back on the right side of a 50-50 record headed into Week 5.
So far this season, quarterback Jesse Ertz has tossed at a completion rate of 51.1 percent. He’s gone for 324 yards, two scores through the air and one interception.
As pass-catchers, Dominique Heath and Deante Burton have collected 169 total receiving yards and one score, while Charles Jones has five catches of his own to add to the K-State total.
On the other side of the football, the Wildcats have given up an average of 16.5 points and 241.5 yards in each of their games this season.
Elijah Lee is the current player atop the leader board in terms of K-State tackles with 16.

Free Week 4 NCAA Football Prediction
There’s little reason to believe Missouri State pulls the upset here.
Their point margin on the year is impressive, but you have to realize that the discrepancy ignores that Week 1 was a blowout (57-0) while Week 2 was a six-point contest (28-22).
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Missouri State ATS
The real question here is whether or not the Bears can cover the spread, and at this juncture, the answer has to be yes.
While K-State is a bit difficult to predict at this juncture because its only opponents have been a contending Stanford and a lowly FAU, you have to believe there’s a middle ground.
While Missouri State clearly falls into the FAU category more than the Stanford category, we don’t know enough about the Wildcats yet to confidently say they’ll get their second 40-plus-point win in as many games this week.
