NCAA Football: Baylor at Kansas State Scott Sewell-USA TODAY Sports

Both teams desperately need this game for their bowl hopes.

Matt Wilson:

While it’s not a hot take to predict a Baylor win at this point, I’m not entirely sure it’s delivered in a pretty package. Tackling issues in the secondary leaves the door open for Kansas State, but Baylor closes it late. 28-21 Baylor.

Kendall Kaut:

Other than a Kansas State blowout, there isn’t a result in this game that would shock me. Both of these teams have good moments. They also have some abysmal stretches. Baylor has more talent, and Kansas State is the kind of team Baylor should beat. I think Baylor breaks a couple of big plays and forces a turnover. 30-17 Baylor.

Fielding Montgomery:

Kansas State (2-3) has not been good this season, although they showed some fight in a low scoring, close loss to Texas last weekend. Their defense still has the Snyder charm, but the Wildcats’ offense just doesn’t have much of anything going for it. Baylor (3-2) is coming off a blowout loss to Oklahoma... that didn’t feel as bad as it should have? The offense actually looked good at times, and we knew that the Oklahoma offense was going to be a major problem. This week is a great opportunity for Baylor’s defense to gain some confidence and the Bears’ offense to gain valuable experience. I like Baylor at home. 24-17 Baylor.

Peter Pope:

In terms of bowl eligibility, this is about as must-win as they come. Baylor’s defense will bounce back a bit against a K-State offense that likes to grind it out. Baylor wins ugly, but comfortably. 24-10 Baylor.

David Fankahuser:

Ugly game but we are the better team especially at home. 27-17 BU.

Mark Moore:

I don’t think KSU’s offense is very good, and though our defense hasn’t been very good, either, we should be able to score. Baylor by 10.

Greg Torres:

I expect them to play hard. At home, with our weapons, I got Baylor 31-20.
