Former K-State LB talks major trash ahead of Texas game

Posted October 7th, 2017

Texas may be its own state, but it’s one that’s been run by the Kansas State Wildcats as of late.

Dating back to last season, K-State has won six consecutive games over teams from Texas, notching victories over Texas Tech, Texas, Baylor, TCU and Texas A&M in 2016, while coming off of a 33-20 win over the Bears in Waco last week.

Until proven otherwise, the Wildcats can boast their year-and-a-half long dominance over the Lone Star State, and former Kansas State linebacker Elijah Lee isn’t shy on the trash talk ahead of today’s showdown with the Longhorns.

Now a rookie with the San Francisco 49ers, Lee played a significant role in Kansas State’s 24-21 win over Texas last season, notching 7 tackles; 6 of which were solo efforts. This time around, though, Lee isn’t suiting up for The Purple Wizard as his Wildcats are on the road in Austin as part of a series where the home team has won the last five meetings.

Kansas State hasn’t won at Darrell K Royal—Texas Memorial Stadium since knocking off Mack Brown’s Longhorns in 2011, 17-13.

The Longhorns are currently 5.5-point favorites over the Wildcats. Texas and Kansas State will kick off at 6:00 p.m. CT on FS1.
