What you need to know about Kansas State
K-State beat the Southern Illinois Salukis 31-23 on Saturday thanks to the all-around brilliance of RB Deuce Vaughn. He ran for 125 yards and two scores, caught four passes for 45 yards and even had a pair of kick returns for 51 yards. Vaughn leads the Big 12 with 39 rushing attempts and ranks sixth in FBS with four rushing touchdowns.
While K-State is getting great mileage out of its ground game, the Wildcats can't say the same for their passing game. They are one of a handful of teams yet to throw a passing touchdown this season, but they have thrown three interceptions. However, QB Skylar Thompson is helping out on the ground as he's rushed for two scores in the young season.
What you need to know about Nevada
Meanwhile, Nevada claimed a resounding 49-10 win over Idaho State at home last week, its sixth straight victory at Mackay Stadium. However, Saturday's contest will be played at Kansas State and the Wolf Pack doesn't know what success against the Big 12 feels like. Nevada has gone 0-5 against teams in the conference, with an average margin of defeat of 24.2 points. This matchup will mark the first head-to-head meeting between the Wildcats and Wolf Pack.
Nevada has its work cut out, but the Wolf Pack feature one of the nation's most talented quarterbacks in Carson Strong. The junior NFL prospect is completing 68.3 percent of passes thus far in 2021 for 693 yards, six touchdowns and just one interception.
