These two teams could not be coming off of more different games in the week before. Kansas State heads into the game coming off a comeback win over No. 3 Oklahoma, while Texas Tech is coming off a game where… Well, you all know what happened.
Here are five things Texas Tech fans need to know about Kansas State:
Skylar Thompson can throw
Historically, the Kansas State offense hasn’t been like most other Big 12 offenses in terms of its productivity through the air. The Wildcats have only had one QB throw for at least 2,000 yards in the last five seasons: Skylar Thompson last year (2,315 yards).
Through two games the senior quarterback has thrown for 593 yards and three touchdowns. He’s the best quarterback this team has had in several years, probably since Collin Klein. Thompson isn’t flashy but he knows how to operate within this offense.
