By the numbers: K-State vs. TCU


0The number conference wins on the road that TCU has this season

In their first season in the Big 12 Conference, the Horned Frogs have struggled to have any kind of success. They only have one win in conference play which came at home in the biggest upset of the season against KU, the game which allowed K-State to be tied with KU for the number one spot in the Big 12. Besides that game, TCU has rarely competed, especially not on the road, where they have lost by an average of 20.3 points per game.

2- The number of wins that stand between K-State and their first Big 12 title

If both the K-State Wildcats and the Kansas Jayhawks win out, they will share the regular season Big 12 title. The Wildcats have never won a Big 12 championship, and their last conference title came in 1977, when the conference was known as the Big 8.

14- The number of home victories for the Wildcats this season

To be able to contend for a Big 12 title, you have to defend your home turf, and that is exactly what the Wildcats have done. The only loss in Bramlage was a 4-point defeat by the Kansas Jayhawks. The Wildcats have been dominant in conference play, winning their seven home games by an average of 14.3 points.

17.53The average number of points TCU loses by in conference play

If their record does not indicate it enough, the Horned Frogs have not been competitive in their 16 conference games this season. TCU has only lost three conference games by single digits and all three of those defeats came by 9 points.

59.7- The number of points the Wildcats give up a game

For the past few seasons, K-State’s calling card has been its ability to lock opposing offenses down. This season is no different, as they are once again at the top of the Big 12, giving up the fewest number of points per game in the conference. For a TCU offense that only averages 54 points, scoring may be very difficult for the Horned Frogs tonight.

98 – The number of wins of the three seniors Rodney McGruder, Jordan Henriquez and Martavious Irving.

This year’s senior class is the winningest in school history. The trio of McGruder, Henriquez and Irving broke the record of 96 wins of last year’s senior class of Jamar Samuels and Victor Ojeleye, and have a chance to help the program win that elusive Big 12 title.
