Kansas St over TEXAS by 1
Yes, it’s still early but this season’s Longhorns look light-years better than 2016’s miserable squad that lost to Kansas. New head coach Tom Herman continues molding this team with each passing game and Texas is finally regaining some much-needed respect after disappearing for three years under Charlie Strong. The problem for Herman here is that today’s role is not one of his best: he’s just 2-6 ATS in his eight tries as a conference home favorite. UT is also just 3-11 ATS in the game before locking horns with the Sooners, including 1-4 SU and 0-5 ATS the last five. Enter Grandpa Snyder and his Wildcats, who bounced back from an ugly road loss to Vandy by throttling Baylor, 33-20. Our database informs us that KSU’s Snyder owns a 37-18 SU and 35-18-2 ATS record in Big 12 games since 2011, including 21-8 ATS when taking points. He’s also brought home the series bacon in the last ten get-togethers, going 8-2 ATS. In a chess match between two of college football’s best coaches, it looks like we’ll be Wildcattin’ this evening in Austin.
