No. 18 Texas vs. K-State: Game thread

Can a Texas team trending in the right direction secure the Longhorns first win in Manhattan since 2002?

NCAA Football: Kansas State at Texas Erich Schlegel-USA TODAY Sports

After stringing together three consecutive home wins over Tulsa, USC, and TCU, No. 18 Texas (3-1, 1-0) is away from home for just the season time this season in search of an in-conference win over Kansas State (2-2, 0-1).

On paper, the Longhorns look the part of the better team entering this Big 12 battle, but it’s been well-documented that Texas hasn’t escaped the Little Apple with a win since 2002.

This time around, with the two teams trending in entirely different directions and Hall of Fame coach Bill Snyder fielding what appears to be his worst team is recent memory, can Texas snap its streak of five-straight losses in the Little Apple and get yet another purple demon off of its back?

Texas and Kansas State are set to get underway at 2:30 p.m. CT on Fox Sports 1.
