What you need to know about Kansas State

The Wildcats put the hurt on Kansas last Saturday with a breezy 35-10 win. RB Deuce Vaughn led the charge for K-State as he rushed for three touchdowns and 162 yards on 11 carries. The most memorable play of his performance was an 80-yard touchdown dash in the third quarter. Vaughn's outing set his single-game rushing touchdown high for the season.

With Vaughn at the top of his game, there wasn't a great deal of pressure on quarterback Skylar Thompson, but he still had a strong showing. Against the Jayhawks, Thompson completed nearly 80 percent of his passes for 244 yards and a touchdown. K-State continues to be one of the nation's most effective offenses on third downs, with the Wildcats converting 45 percent of the time this season. 

What you need to know about West Virginia

West Virginia suffered a grim 24-3 defeat to the Oklahoma State Cowboys on Saturday. Although Oklahoma State has one of the nation's top defenses, the Mountaineers still had to be disappointed with the return they got on offense. Jarret Doege failed to engineer a single touchdown drive, and threw an interception with only 109 yards passing.

Although their results haven't always reflected it, West Virginia has been an effective defense when it comes to getting off of the field on third downs. The Mountaineers have limited opponents to converting just 34 percent of the time. West Virginia has had a relatively effective pass rush, totaling 21 sacks as a team so far in 2021. The defensive line is going to have to be at the top of its game, because Kansas State has only given up 15 sacks this season.
