This will be the first time Kansas State and Cincinnati will face each other since the 1990s. The Bearcats struggled a lot in their first year in the Big 12 only beating one opponent and that was fellow Big 12 newcomer Houston. Cincinnati has a lot of growing to do as they continue on in the Big 12.
Kansas State scored more than 30 points all but once in 2023. Cincinnati allowed more than 20 points to every single Big 12 opponent in 2023. I think the Bearcats have a long way to go to get the recruits and players they need to be successful in the Big 12. While this could also look like a trap game for Kansas State, if they lose to Arizona State as I predicted, the Wildcats will come roaring back with a blowout win over the Bearcats.
Kansas State will move to 9-2 as they prepare for their final game of the season against Iowa State.
