The Texas Longhorns have dropped two of their last three contests, including a 37-27 road loss to the TCU Horned Frogs during their most recent outing.

However, the early odds anticipate Texas bouncing back on Saturday at home against the No. 20 Kansas State Wildcats, as the Longhorns opened as an early six-point favorite, per VegasInsider.

Similarly, ESPN’s FPI gives Texas a 67.4 percent chance to win.

The Horns are currently 3-0 against K-State under Tom Herman, though both efforts have been decided by a single score — 19-14 last season, and 40-34 in double-overtime in 2017.

The Wildcats will enter Austin at 6-2 overall and riding the momentum of a three-game winning streak, which includes wins over TCU and the Oklahoma Sooners; the two teams that have topped Texas in conference play. Most recently, K-State cruised past Kansas on the road, 38-10.

Kickoff between the Longhorns and Wildcats is set for Saturday, Nov. 10 at 2:30 p.m. CT on ESPN.
