Texas vs. Kansas State 2012: TV schedule, game time, spread and more

Darren Carroll

The Texas Longhorns hope to finish the season on a high note, taking on Kansas State in the final regular season game of the year.

The No. 18 Texas Longhorns finish the regular season on Saturday against No. 6 Kansas State, completing a rather disappointing year for Mack Brown's team.

The Longhorns appeared set for a strong finish in 2012 after a pair of big wins over Texas Tech and Iowa State, yet suffered another crushing loss with a 20-13 defeat to TCU at home. The Longhorns offense once again failed to overcome early adversity under quarterback David Ash, with Case McCoy being named the starter heading into the finale against the Wildcats.

Kansas State, meanwhile, has had two weeks to contemplate a season-changing loss to Baylor on Nov. 17. The Wildcats appeared headed to the BCS National Championship as the top team in the country yet will likely finish out of the top five following the loss.

The Wildcats boast one of the stronger combinations of defense and offense in the NCAA, a good reason for the 12-point spread in favor of Kansas State heading into the game. The line is currently set at 63.5 points, although the Texas offense may have trouble keeping up with McCoy under center.

Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. CT with coverage on ABC.
