The Longhorns enter the contest tied with Oklahoma for second place in the Big 12, 1 1/2 games behind Kansas, which has clinched a share of the regular-season title. Texas visits Oklahoma on Saturday.

Texas suffered a 71-70 loss at Kansas State last season in the only meeting between the teams. The Longhorns have won the last three home meetings.

Kansas State (12-15, 3-11) has lost a season-high five straight games, including a 77-70 loss to Missouri on Saturday. The Wildcats held a 56-51 lead with just over seven minutes remaining before faltering down the stretch.
