The Kansas State Wildcats will face off against the Arkansas State Red Wolves at noon ET on Saturday at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. While the Wildcats were not exactly top dog last year, they did wrap up the year with an winning record of 8-5. Arkansas State was 8-5 last season and is coming off of an 37-24 defeat against the Memphis Tigers this past Saturday.
A couple last-season stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: K-State was seventh best in the nation in passing touchdowns allowed, finishing the 2019 season giving up only 12. But the Red Wolves ranked eighth in the nation in passing touchdowns, closing the year with 37 overall. These opposing strengths should make for an exciting matchup.
K-State has the odds in their favor, so they’ll need to guard against complacency. These early season matchups can go either way as both teams get back into playing shape.
