Kansas St over TEXAS by 1

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

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.
