On Saturday, the Arkansas State Red Wolves visit Bill Snyder Family Stadium in Manhattan, Kansas to play the Kansas State Wildcats. Arkansas State began its regular season with a 37-24 loss to the Memphis Tigers. The Red Wolves scored early to take a 14-7 lead after one quarter but we're outscored 30-10 the rest of the way. Ryan Graham and Isaiah Azubuike each had rushing touchdowns in the loss while  Logan Bonner threw one touchdown pass but had a pair of interceptions.

Layne Hatcher has thrown for 166 yards for Arkansas State while Logan Bonner has thrown for 133 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. Jamal Jones is the leading rusher for the Red Wolves with 64 yards. Dahu Green is the leading receiver for Arkansas State with 99 yards, while Jonathan Adams Jr has 65 yards.

Kansas State lost several key skill-position players as 28 seniors left of which 15 were starters. Senior quarterback Skylar Thompson returns to lead the offense. Last season Thompson threw for 2,315 yards while also rushing for 405 yards and accounting for a total of 23 touchdowns. Malik Knowles and Joshua Youngblood will be Thompson's favorite targets while the addition of Briley Moore, a graduate transfer will help.

On the defensive side of the ball, Justin Hughes returns at linebacker after missing all of last season with a torn ACL. In 2018, Hughes led the Wildcats with 56 tackles. Elijah Sullivan will line up alongside Hughes while Cody Fletcher and Daniel Green will see plenty of action at linebacker as well. Wyatt Hubert returns as the top defensive lineman, but the defensive secondary has to replace three of its star players who are no longer at the school.

Kansas State Wildcats -13

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.
