What to Know

A Big 12 battle is on tap between the TCU Horned Frogs and the Kansas State Wildcats at 4 p.m. ET Saturday at Amon G. Carter Stadium. These two teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.

It was a close one, but last week TCU sidestepped the Texas Longhorns for a 33-31 win. The victory came about even with the Horned Frogs handicapping themselves with 130 penalty yards. TCU QB Max Duggan did work as he accumulated 231 passing yards in addition to rushing for two TDs and 79 yards.

Special teams collected 15 points for TCU. K Griffin Kell booted in four field goals, the longest a 49-yarder in the third quarter, which ultimately accounted for the difference in the matchup.

Meanwhile, K-State beat the Texas Tech Red Raiders 31-21 last week. RB Deuce Vaughn had a stellar game for K-State as he rushed for one TD and 113 yards on 16 carries in addition to catching three passes for one TD and 81 yards. One of the most thrilling moments was Vaughn's 70-yard TD reception in the fourth quarter.
