The Kansas St. Wildcats host national power Nebraska Cornhuskers tonight on ESPN starting at 7:45 EDT. The Cornhuskers strongly feel that they are a national championship contender, but they will have to get by a dangerous and undefeated Kansas St. team. Nebraska is a 12 point road favorite tonight, with a total of 51.5 points expected.

Kansas St. might be the least talked about undefeated team in FBS. The Wildcats are looking to start 2-0 within their division for the first time since 2000. The Wildcats opening season win against UCLA is starting to look better and better by the day. Kansas St. has been a single digit favorite in 3 of their 4 games this season, leading to a 2-2 ATS record. Kansas St. has plenty of revenge on their minds, as they've lost the past 5 meetings SU against Nebraska. Beating the Cornhuskers tonight will certainly put the Wildcats in the national polls. Kansas St. is a run based offense, averaging 216 YPG on the ground. Senior RB Daniel Thomas leads this rushing attack, as he's rushed for 628 YDS and 6 TD's this year. Overall, this Wildcats offense averages 30.8 PPG, 50th best in the nation. No opponent has scored more than 24 PTS against the Wildcats this season. Tonight will mark the first time this season that Kansas St. will be the listed underdog. The Wildcats are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following an ATS loss. Kansas St. is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games as a home underdog.

The Wildcats are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 conference games. The Over is 6-2 in their last 8 games as a home underdog.

Nebraska might be undefeated and ranked 7th in the nation, but they certainly didn't play like it in their last game. Nebraska only beat South Dakota St. 17-3 SU, an FCS team that they were favored by 41.5 points against. The Cornhuskers are hoping that result was just a natural let down from their road win at Washington the week prior. Nebraska has only won 1 game ATS this year, the road win at Washington. The Cornhuskers are averaging 40 PPG this season, the 11th best in the nation. The powerful rushing attack for Nebraska is what is most effective, averaging the 4th most rushing YPG in the nation at 309.3 YPG. QB Taylor Martinez is the team's leading rusher, as he has 496 rushing YDS with 8 TD's this season. RB Roy Helu Jr. has rushed for 305 YDS with 4 TD's of his own. Defensively, Nebraska has only allowed 1 team to score more than 17 PTS this season. Overall, the Cornhuskers are allowing 12.8 PPG, the 7th fewest PPG in the nation. Nebraska is 6-2

ATS in their last 8 games as a road favorite. The Cornhuskers are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games against a team with a winning home record. 

The Cornhuskers are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games as a road favorite more than 10 PTS. The Under is 14-2 in their last 16 games in October.
