College football betting odds may be tilted toward Kansas State in this game because of their two opening routs but head coach Ron Prince knows that the team can do a lot better. “Pretty clearly, our tackling on defense has to improve,” Prince said. “We need a huge step up in that area.” Kansas State is also not happy with their running game. Running backs Keithen Valentine and Logan Dold have struggled to find holes. Quarterback Josh Freeman is ranked fifth in the country in passing efficiency according to college football betting stats. Kansas State is second in the country in total offense according to NCAA football betting stats although they have played a couple of weak teams.
