State bragging right are on the line, as Big 12 Conference rivals Kansas State and Kansas square off in Lawrence.
Bill Snyder has his 12th-ranked Wildcats playing tremendous ball, as they have won all six of their games to this points in the season. They have proven more than capable of winning close contests, and last weekend they bested Texas Tech on the road by a 41-34 final. That triumph lifted Kansas State to 3-0 in Big 12 action, and the club is quietly keeping pace with the Oklahoma Sooners and Oklahoma State Cowboys whom it will face in succession following this weekend's affair.
Since opening the season with back-to-back wins over inferior competition, Turner Gill's Kansas squad has suffered four consecutive defeats. The last two outings have been ugly, as a 70-28 loss to Oklahoma State was followed by last weekend's 47-17 home beating at the hands of Oklahoma.
