Kansas State opens as 7-point underdog against Texas

Bill Snyder’s Wildcats will hit the road as underdogs heading into Week 6.

Kansas State football opened as a 7-point underdog to Texas on Sunday. Both teams are coming off victories over Baylor and Iowa State, respectively.

It is the first time this season that Kansas State has opened as an underdog. The Wildcats opened as 3 1/2 and 13 1/2-point favorites in their previous two games against Vanderbilt and Baylor, respectively. Kansas State was upset by Vanderbilt, 14-7, before rebounding with a 33-20 win over the Bears on Saturday.

Kansas State has not won at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium since 2011. Texas defeated Kansas State by double digits in each of the Wildcats’ last two trips to Austin in 2015 and 2013. The Wildcats had won five straight over the Longhorns before losing in 2013.

Kansas State, whose offense has been carried by the ground attack this season, will go up against one of the better defenses in the Big 12 when the team takes the field against Texas on Oct. 7. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. CT. The game will be televised on FOX Sports 1.
