Kansas State is set to play its third straight game against a Texas opponent to start Big 12 play when the team hosts No. 6 TCU on Saturday. The Wildcats had a little fun with the Horned Frogs when they arrived in Manhattan.
According to Brett McMurphy, Kansas State hung a “Texas State Champs” t-shirt in the visitor’s locker room at Bill Snyder Family Football Stadium ahead of the matchup against TCU.

In case you forgot, Kansas State went 5-0 against Texas teams during the 2016 season. That included SEC-opponent Texas A&M, who the Wildcats defeated in the AdvoCare Texas Bowl last December.
The Wildcats defeated TCU 30-6 a year ago in Fort Worth — one of the worst home losses in TCU history under head coach Gary Patterson.
Kansas State made it 6-straight against Texas teams in September when the Wildcats defeated Baylor in their Big 12 opener for the 2017 season. That streak, however, ended against Texas in overtime last week.
Kansas State owns a 3-2 edge over the Horned Frogs since TCU joined the Big 12 in 2012. The Wildcats, however, have not defeated a top-10 team at home since 2006.
TCU and Kansas State are scheduled to kickoff at 2 p.m. CT after lightning delayed the game from its original 11 a.m. CT start time. The game will air on FS1.
