Texas and Kansas State will square off next weekend in front of a national television audience on FOX.

Texas football set to host a hot Kansas State team at home in Week 10
Sark and the Longhorns will continue their quest for a spot in the Big 12 Championship Game next weekend against a solid Kansas State squad after downing the BYU Cougars in convincing fashion at home on Oct. 28 by a score of 35-6. The win over BYU in Week 9 moved Texas’ record on the season to 7-1 (4-1 Big 12).
Kansas State won its last two games in Big 12 play by a combined margin of nearly 80 points against the TCU Horned Frogs and Houston Cougars. The Wildcats’ last game was a dominant 41-0 shutout victory at home against Houston on Oct. 28. This is the same Houston team that put the Longhorns on upset alert just last weekend.
The Wildcats’ win over Houston last weekend moved its record on the season to 6-2 (4-1 Big 12).
This matchup between the Longhorns and Wildcats in Week 10 at DKR will have a big impact on the Big 12 title race this fall.
Texas and Kansas State currently sit in a tie for first place in the Big 12 standings with three other teams. The Oklahoma Sooners, Oklahoma State Cowboys, Iowa State Cyclones, Texas, and Kansas State all have 4-1 records in conference play after Week 9.
