A share of first place in the rugged Big 12 Conference is on the line Saturday as No. 10 Texas travels to Manhattan, Kan., to face No. 7 Kansas State in a matinee contest.
Texas (18-4, 7-2 Big 12) sits alone in first place coming into the game, but K-State (18-4, 6-3) is one of four teams just a game back at the midway point of the conference season.
With a win, the Longhorns will assure themselves of maintaining the top spot and maybe open a little cushion with many of their closest pursuers. A win by Texas would give the Longhorns a split of the season series with the Wildcats.
