Arkansas State has been the model of consistency and stability. Consider that head coach Blake Anderson has produced six bowls in six seasons. Anderson has three eight-win seasons with one nine and one seven-win campaign too. What is missing is the big breakout season that catches national attention. What’s not missing is excellent offensive football. First-year Kansas State head coach Chris Klieman had a successful NCAA Football betting debut. He led the Wildcats to an 8-5 record and bowl berth. Most important of all K-State upset Oklahoma in one of 2019’s top games. Klieman’s future looks bright.
