1. College Football News Preview 2020: Kansas State Wildcats Win Total Prediction, What Will Happen
It’s still going to be a work in progress, but it should be a better overall year if the lines can come together in a big, big hurry.
Start with having the right quarterback in place. Skylar Thompson is a good-enough veteran to keep the O moving despite all of the personnel changes, but more points have to start coming from all the long, deliberate drives.
The Wildcats were 7-0 last year when scoring more than 24 points, 0-4 when scoring fewer, and 1-1 when scoring 24.
It’s Kansas State – the special teams are great. Blake Lynch should be one of the nation’s most reliable kickers, and Josh Youngblood is a special return man who’ll be avoided at all costs.
The secondary is fine, the linebackers will be great, and again, it all comes down to the lines.
Set The Kansas State Wildcats Regular Season Win Total At … 8
Against a relatively easy slate to start, the Wildcats had a real shot at 6-0 if they can pull off a home win against Texas. 5-1 is more reasonable before going into road games at TCU and Iowa State. With Texas Tech and Oklahoma State coming to Manhattan, getting to eight regular season wins again is a must.
It’s an okay-not-great year for the Big 12, and there’s a void to be filled. Kansas State should be able to make a big push to be among the three best teams, but those lines …
If they’re good right away, and the parts are filled, being in the Big 12 top two is possible.
