On Saturday afternoon, the Texas Longhorns (3-4) will be facing the very tough offense of the #11 Kansas State Wildcats (5-1). The Longhorns were able to beat the Wildcats 31-21 at home in 2013.

Through seven games, the Longhorns are 103rd in the country in scoring with just 23.7 points per game. Wide receiver John Harris has been Texas' best player this season by catching 40 passes for 607 yards and six touchdowns.

Last Saturday, Kansas State picked up their third win in a row by defeating #11 Oklahoma 31-30 on the road. They did give up 533 yards in that game, but their offense was 5-for-11 on their third down opportunities and they didn't turn the ball over.
The Wildcats have one of the highest-scoring offenses in the nation right now after scoring 39.2 points per game in their first six games. Quarterback Jake Waters has completed 65.1 percent of his passes this season for 1,431 yards with nine touchdowns and three interceptions.
