*****GAME THREAD: #24 Texas @ #13 Kansas State*****

The Texas Longhorns bring a five game winning streak against the Kansas State Wildcats into Saturday's contest at Bill Snyder Family Football Stadium in Manhattan.  The 'Horns have won the last two in the Little Apple and hope to replicate that success under head coach Steve Sarkisian.  Sark is 1-6 in true road games with his lone win coming in Fort Worth last season against the Horned Frogs.  Both Sarkisian and the program need the win against the Wildcats to prove they are still a contender for a Big 12 crown but it won't be easy.  Kansas State sits in second pace in the Big 12 and the 'Cats are coming off a 48-0 thrashing of Oklahoma State last weekend.

The Longhorns are game planning for both quarterbacks Adrian Martinez and Will Howard, and Pete Kwiatkowski's defense will have their hands full with either.  Martinez missed last week with a knee injury and his status for the game is unknown.  Howard started last week in the win against the 'Pokes, throwing for 296 yards and 4 touchdowns.  Elusive running back Deuce Vaughn is another weapon Texas will have to contend with on the Wildcat side of the ball.  The Wildcats rack up a whopping 228 yards rushing per game, and the Longhorns need to plug the holes and control the line of scrimmage if they expect to contain Vaughn.

For the 'Horns the hope is quarterback Quinn Ewers plays an efficient game after struggling last week in Stillwater. Ewers threw three interceptions against the Cowboys and struggled to hit his receivers most of the day, particularly on the deep throws.  Expect running backs Bijan Robinson and Roschon Johnson to fight for yards against a rushing defense that gives up just 133 yards on the ground per game.

It's a night game on the road, with big implications for the Texas season and program.  A win silences the critics about Sarkisian's inability to win on the road and makes the Longhorns bowl eligible with three games remaining.  A loss furthers the chatter about the future of the program and whether or not true progress is being made.

weather may be a factor this evening...My brother is deer hunting in Nebraska and a front came thru Friday and dropped the temps down to the mid 20's in the morning, with a stiff North wind

Well then Bijan and RoJo need to be ready. Hook'em!
