Preview capsule: No. 3 Kansas St. at TCU

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) No. 3 Kansas State (9-0, 6-0 Big 12) at TCU (6-3, 3-3), 7 p.m. (Fox)

Line: Off (Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein questionable)

Series Record: TCU leads 3-2.

WHAT'S AT STAKE

Kansas State is No. 2 in the BCS standings and trying to stay in position not only for the Big 12 title but a spot in the national championship game. The Wildcats are going for their first 10-0 record since 1998. This will be the first time for TCU coach Gary Patterson to go against his alma mater, three decades after he was a graduate assistant coach for K-State's first-ever bowl team.

KEY MATCHUP

Assuming Heisman Trophy front-running quarterback Collin Klein play, which seems likely after he came out of last week's game with an apparent head injury, the Kansas State rushing game against the TCU rushing defense. The Wildcats lead the Big 12 with 225 yards rushing per game, and TCU is the league's best rushing defense, allowing only 97 yards per game. Klein and RB John Hubert have combined for 1,558 yards and 29 touchdowns rushing. The Frogs have allowed only six rushing TDs, but five have come in their last four Big 12 games.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

Kansas State: Klein is a given, but sophomore WR/kick return Tyler Lockett is also a big-play threat. His 34.9-yard average on kickoff returns leads the Big 12, and is well above the current single-season record of 28.5. He has returned two kicks for scores. As a receiver, he has 34 catches for 528 yards and two scores.

TCU: Freshmen QB Trevone Boykin and RB B.J. Catalon. Though he is only 2-3 since being thrust into the starting role, Boykin has become the only TCU quarterback with four passing TDs in consecutive games, and helped the Frogs overcome a 10-point deficit to win at West Virginia last week. A series of injuries cleared the way for Catalon to start, and he has 400 yards rushing along with 17 catches.

FACTS & FIGURES

Kansas State has scored 111 points off turnovers this season. Its opponents have scored none. ... TCU has scored in 251 consecutive games since Nov. 16, 1991, the third-longest such streak in the nation behind Michigan (347 games) and Florida (306). Kansas' streak of 119 games in a row is the eighth-longest in the nation. ... Along with its nation's best plus-20 turnover margin, K-State is the least penalized team

Don't expect a big role for Ramon Sessions with Wizards after signing as free agent

Don't expect a big role for Ramon Sessions with Wizards after signing as free agent

When Ramon Sessions was last with the Wizards, he was the primary backup point guard behind starter John Wall. Now back with the team on a 10-day contract, he is expected to play a much more muted role.

Wizards head coach Scott Brooks spoke of Sessions as the fourth-string point guard, not only behind Wall who remains out to recover from left knee surgery, but also behind Tomas Satoransky and Tim Frazier. The presence of Sessions should not affect Satoransky's minutes as the replacement starter and it doesn't sound like Frazier is in jeopardy of moving down the depth chart, either.

"I don't know how many minutes or opportunities he will get, but with the way he holds himself I feel comfortable if we need him in a pinch," Brooks said. "We have some coverage now if one of our guards goes down or gets in foul trouble."

PODCAST: WHAT THE SESSIONS SIGNING MEANS FOR SATORANSKY

Brooks mentioned Sessions' ability to play some at shooting guard if needed. He also praised Sessions' penchant for getting to the free throw line. Sessions has averaged 3.9 free throw attempts in just 23.5 minutes per game. That's highest among active players who have averaged 24 minutes or less in their career.

Sessions played well for the Wizards down the stretch of the 2014-15 season and in the 2015-16 campaign. As a member of the Wizards, he averaged 9.2 points and 3.0 assists per game.

He has played for eight different teams, but has always felt a connection to Washington.

"It just always felt like a place I could end up back one day," he said. "People always ask me, being on so many teams, 'what's the home team to you?' I always come back to the Wizards. It was a place I was only here a year-and-a-half, but it feels like much longer than that with the run we had and the fans and the support I get when I come here."

Exactly how long Sessions will be here is unclear. He couldn't crack the Knicks' rotation earlier this season and has a lot to prove. Still, he's excited for the opportunity.

Kevin Durant commits $10 million to Prince George's County public schools

Kevin Durant continues to give back to the community that raised him. 

Durant, who calls Prince George's County, MD., home, recently announced a partnership with Prince George's County public schools. 

The partnership, which comes with a $10 million dollar commitment from Durant, will help fund a program called College Track. Essentially, it's a 10-year program that provides basic infrastructure — test prep, tutoring, college selection and how to get financial aid — that kids from less-advantaged families often times don’t have.

Durant's money will go towards building College Track's Maryland center. There are nine other College Tracks across California, Colorado, and Louisiana, and the program has helped over 3,000 students get to college and beyond. This Maryland center will be the first of three that are planned to go up in the DC area.
