Texas Tech vs Kansas State Prediction & Pick
Though Texas Tech has scored some victories over its upcoming opponent in the past, it's been all Kansas State in recent years. The Wildcats are 11-1 in 12 matchups with the Red Raiders since 2011, including 6-0 in their last six meetings.
Texas Tech may have beaten a couple of top-25 schools this season but needed overtime to do so. Meanwhile, Kansas State has easily handled its opponents so far. If you remove the upset loss to Tulane, the Wildcats have outscored their other three foes 115-46.
Throw in the fact that Kansas State boasts the NCAA's 11th-best rushing attack, and I fully expect the Wildcats to pull out a win in front of the home crowd.
Final Score Prediction: Kansas State: 28 | Texas Tech: 24

Kansas State might have the better of Texas Tech, but their recent meetings have been fairly close. Four of the Wildcats' last six wins over their rivals have been by seven or fewer points, with last year's affair being decided by only one.
Even though Kansas State should win this one, I expect that Texas Tech will keep things close like it has all season.
