Kansas State (10-3, 7-2 in the Big 12) rattled off four straight wins to get to this point, including a resounding 31-28 victory over TCU in the Big 12 Championship game. Running back Deuce Vaughn has been electric for the Wildcats this year, totaling 1,803 yards from scrimmage and 11 total touchdowns.
For Alabama (10-2, 6-2 in the SEC), this isn’t the season fans hoped for. The Crimson Tide won their first six games, but losses to Tennessee and LSU ultimately squashed any playoff appearance hopes. Alabama’s offense isn’t as potent as years past, but the Crimson Tide still have one of the country’s best quarterbacks in Bryce Young (3,007 passing yards, 27 passing touchdowns).

The Alabama Crimson Tide find themselves in the unfamiliar territory despite posting a terrific 10-2 regular season record. At Alabama, it’s championship or bust, and for the Tide not to be in the title is disappointing for their standards.
In fact, since the beginning of the College Football Playoff, this is only the second time that Alabama has not made the CFP. There is good news, however, as top draft prospects – quarterback Bryce Young and linebacker Will Anderson Jr. – are expected to play.
The Kansas State Wildcats are 10-3 after winning the Big 12 Championship and spoiling TCU’s undefeated season. The Wildcats are having their best season since 2012, which resulted in a conference championship.
For the Wildcats to pull off the upset, they will need star running back Deuce Vaughn to help convert key third downs and extend drives to keep the Alabama offense off the field.
