Kansas State Wildcats vs Kansas Jayhawks 11/02/2019
Kansas State Wildcats
The Kansas State Wildcats are fired up following that big upset win over Oklahoma. The win allowed them to keep their hopes alive in the postseason. QB Skylar Thompson will once again be at the helm as the team’s dual-threat. Together with James Gilbert and Jordon Brown, Kansas State is expected to turn to its rushing game to frustrate the Jayhawks. Kansas needs to find a way to defend this or risk being blown out this weekend.
Players to watch: S. Thompson QB 98 CMP 161 ATT 1,207 YDS 60.9 CMP% 7.5 AVG 39 LNG 7 TD 1 INT; J. Gilbert RB 100 ATT 558 YDS 5.6 AVG 51 LNG; J. Brown RB 37 ATT 229 YDS 6.2 AVG 50 LNG; D. Shoen WR 23 REC 322 YDS 14 AVG 38 LNG; M. Knowles WR 15 REC 224 YDS 14.9 AVG 34 LNG
Odds are stacked on the Jayhawks although they may have some form of motivation. Aside from making it back-to-back wins, Kansas can nail its first win against KSU with an upset this weekend. QB Carter Stanley needs to keep things together for the Jayhawks. He went 53-of-84 for 725 yards and seven touchdowns in his last two games, making him a player to watch. Obviously he cannot do it all by himself. Aside from that, the Jayhawks need to defend better. They have allowed opponents, allowing more than half of third downs to be converted.
Players to watch: C. Stanley QB 155 CMP 241 ATT 1,900 YDS 64.3 CMP% 7.9 AVG 75 LNG 19 TD 5 INT; P. Williams Jr. RB 136 ATT 704 YDS 5.2 AVG 65 LNG; K. Herbert RB 43 ATT 384 YDS 8.9 AVG 82 LNG; A. Parchment WR 42 REC 614 YDS 14.6 AVG 75 LNG; S. Robinson Jr. WR 30 REC 522 YDS 17.4 AVG 65 LNG
