The Wildcats have five games left to play in the regular season and are still positioned to play in the conference championship game and a bowl game, but getting there will feature two road games and three challenging home games. Here are how I view the difficulties that lie ahead this season for Kansas State.
5. at West Virginia – 11/19
I don’t think the Wildcats have an easy game left on the schedule, but someone has to be number five and the Mountaineers have been the worst team in the Big 12 this season, so they are my pick for fifth.
West Virginia has been a different team at home, as showcased by their win over Baylor at Milan-Puskar Stadium, and then turning around and getting walloped by Texas Tech. It will be a tough trip for the Cats, being their second straight week on the road and making the furthest journey of the season, but they should still be able to overcome it and get their first win in Morgantown since 2014.
