It’s time for another Football Friday. Who else is excited? Let’s get to your questions. Thanks, as always, for asking them.
@KellisRobinett will the Wildcats utilize the ground game against TCU, due to the fact that Jason Verrett is a threat to the passing game?

There’s no easy way to attack TCU’s defense. The Horned Frogs rank 19th nationally against the run (125.2 yards) and 10th nationally against the pass (224.2 yards). Verrett might be the best shutdown corner in the Big 12, so you don’t want to challenge him. Tyler Lockett will really have to work to get open on Saturday. But you can’t exactly run the ball 45 times against a stacked front seven, either. This is the best defense K-State will see all year. Nothing will come easy. My guess is K-State will favor the run, because John Hubert has been on a tear lately and Daniel Sams can create something out of nothing on the ground. But the Wildcats will try to stay as balanced as possible. If they can complete passes over the middle to Curry Sexton, Tramaine Thompson and Kyle Klein that could open up other things.
