For the final time on Feb. 19, Texas basketball (16-9, 5-7 Big 12) and the Kansas State Wildcats (15-10, 5-7 Big 12) will meet in the regular season as Big 12 foes. Head coach Rodney Terry hosts head coach Jerome Tang and Kansas State for Texas's last game at the Moody Center for a couple of weeks.

Terry and the Longhorns need a win to right the ship and bolster their NCAA Tournament resume before they hit the road for a tough two-game road trip over the following 10 days. Texas has been the very definition of up and down lately, swapping wins and losses in each of its last five contests.

Texas's last game was not a pretty result, as Terry's squad fell short of the No. 3 Houston Cougars in a tough matchup by a convincing score of 82-61. Last weekend's 20+ point loss to Houston was Texas's first double-digit defeat in Big 12 play this season.

Kansas State is on a rough slide down the Big 12 standings lately. After a solid start to conference play, where Tang and the Wildcats won four of their first five contests in the Big 12, they've dropped two in a row and six of their last seven.

The Wildcats have also struggled in Big 12 road games this season, only boasting one win away from Manhattan, which came against the last-place West Virginia Mountaineers back on Jan. 9.

Here’s a look at the TV/streaming information and game time as Texas hosts Kansas State at the Moody Center in Austin on Feb. 19.

Betting odds for Texas basketball vs. Kansas State

Texas is an 8.5-point favorite against Kansas State on Feb. 19, and the Longhorns are favored in the moneyline (-370) over the Wildcats (+300), per FanDuel. The over/under is 140.5 points.

Kansas State is the No. 73 ranked team in adjusted efficiency in Division I, per Kenpom. Texas, meanwhile, ranks 29th in the nation in adjusted efficiency.

Kenpom gives Texas a 76 percent chance of beating Kansas State and projects the final score of this game to be 73-65 in favor of the Longhorns.

Texas only has a few opportunities remaining for easier (at least by Big 12 standards) wins at home in conference play down the stretch during the regular season. Kansas State and the Oklahoma State Cowboys are the only two unranked teams Texas faces at home for the remainder of the regular season.

Granted, that's not to say that Kansas State is an easy win. While Kansas State is not the same squad they were last year, suffering key losses during the offseason including guard Markquis Nowell and wing Keyontae Johnson, there are still some quality players on the roster who are having productive seasons for the Wildcats.

Kansas State has a very potent big three on the offensive end of the floor, including guard Cam Carter, Arthur Kaluma, and Tylor Perry. Together, these three Kansas State standouts are scoring roughly 45 points per game.

The backcourt duo of Perry and Carter will test Texas's perimeter defense. And Kaluma presents a difficult matchup for the Texas forward rotation in this game.

Final score prediction: Texas-72, Kansas State-60
