Texas Bowl Matchup

The Wildcats posted an 8-4 SU record this season, including outright victories in five of their past six contests. Kansas State ended the regular season with a 30-6 win over TCU as a 4-point road underdog, but amassed a 4-8 ATS record and has failed to cover in consecutive games.

Kansas State is a dismal 1-7 SU and ATS in its past eight bowl games, including a 45-23 loss to Arkansas as 13.5-point underdogs in last season's Liberty Bowl. The Wildcats have also been held to 17 or fewer points in three of their past six bowl game appearances.

However, the Wildcats have been outstanding when pegged as an underdog of three or fewer points, claiming outright wins in six of their past seven, including two this season, and are unbeaten against the spread in their past 11.

Texas A&M stormed out of the gate this season with six straight victories, covering the spread in its first four. But the Aggies have struggled since, losing four of six SU, and are currently enduring an eight-game ATS losing streak.

The Aggies have lost two of three as favorites, while going winless ATS in six. Texas A&M is on a 4-1 SU run as bowl game chalk, forcing the point total UNDER four times, and holding opponents to 22 or fewer points in three of its past four outings.

The Wildcats have held the upper hand in recent clashes with Texas A&M, winning three straight SU, and covering in their past four. Kansas State was pegged as a home underdog in its past two against the Aggies, most recently posting a 53-50 win as 5.5-point underdogs in November 2011.
