The main players
Josh Hayes and Kobe Savage from DB
Safety tandem Josh Hayes and Kobe Savage Hop off K-State’s Week 2 win bar over Missouri. Each of the new transfers in Manhattan this year is a major factor in improving the Wildcat’s defense. The unit holds the opponents an average of six points this season and these two safety features have played a big role. Savage was one of four Wildcats to intercept Missouri’s offense and Hayes contributed to stopping the main drive with two TFLs.
While Knowles owner He didn’t have the best statistical start to his career in 2022, and he still frightens his opponents every time he touches football. Voted for 2022 pre-season All-Americans pre-season Knowles has shown amazing flashes and great playability this season providing the Cats with yet another dynamic playmaker to thrill the attack. After scoring in his first 75-yard organizational game in the first week against South Dakota, Knowles continues to show how dangerous he can be on the open field.
Tulane Green Wave
WR White Tea
Senior Wideout Shae Wyatt brought juice to the Green Wave in their first week win over Alcorn State last Saturday and cemented himself as a key player for Tulane. White contributed a 5/130/1 baseline against Alcorn State and looks to continue to show his great ability to play against the Wildcats. The Omaha native made his way to Tulane after an impressive run in Central Missouri where he earned a Second Team All-America honor in 2019 with 1,412 yards and 12 touchdowns. After a hot start to his 2022 campaign, I’m highlighting White to be a key player in Saturday’s game.
QB Michael Pratt
Pratt is entering his new season after receiving a pre-season IAAF Third Team Honor as well as appearing on the 2022 Maxwell Award Watch List. After a career season in 2021 for the Green Wave, Michael Pratt has established himself as one of the conference’s most dynamic quarterbacks and a person He should be watched on Saturday’s game. Pratt scored 2544 all-purpose yards and 26 touchdowns in 2021 and is on his way to another big year with a 52-0 win at Alcorn State where Pratt threw for 318 yards and three points.
green tulane wave
Tulane didn’t get much pressure from Alcorn State in last week’s 52-0 blast and it will be important to slow K-State. While there have been some major highlights of the green wave in the past two weeks, this game appears to be the first dose of competition. As a rating game, this should give coaches, players, and fans a good view of how much equity to put into this team as they try to generate interest in AAC. It will be a tough job to slow down RB Deuce Vaughn’s outstanding attack and Wildcat but Saturday’s game will give Green Wave a chance to reassure themselves.
What will K-State’s offense look like in the second half? After two straight weeks with a sloppy second-half performance, Kansas State is looking to overcome its past mistakes. While the Wildcats dealt alike South Dakota And the Missouri Immediately, both second halves presented a similar story. In the first week, K-State apparently shut down the rules of play in the second half after jumping into an early lead over the Coyotes and had a similar lack of effectiveness in the second half against the Tigers in Week 2. We still haven’t seen how the Wildcats will handle a game that will be half The second has a competitor and they face pressure for the duration of the game hour.
Prediction: K-STATE 41, Tulane 17
Wildcat’s hasty attack proves to be too much for Green Wave’s defense and this game adds to the likes of Deuce Vaughn’s signature bar. With the strongest O streak in Adrian Martinez’s career, the Cats are bullying Tulane’s Defensive streak and setting their dominance for K-State playmakers to make some big plays. After three consecutive Bills matches with 50,000 fans, the pressure was too great for Tulane to adjust to, and he would never be comfortable. K-State does business in Manhattan.
