Kansas State lost 15 of its 22 starters from last season but it's senior quarterback Skylar Thompson returns to begin his fourth season as a starter under center. The Wildcats have covered the number in eight of their last 10. Kansas State is also replacing several faces on the defense but with Justin Hughes returning at linebacker after missing an entire season expect the K-State defense to shutdown a subpar offensive unit for Arkansas State. Final Score Prediction, Kansas State Wildcats win and cover ATS 42-14.
