Can the Wildcats manage to snag a flagpole and halt their freefall?

Buddy's going to get his. As in Norman, the key is making sure nobody else does.

(17) Oklahoma (17-7, 8-4 Big 12) at Kansas State (12-13, 5-7 Big 12)

We've already entered the dank lower levels of the 2015 dungeon. The Wildcats are sitting on their first five-game losing streak since 2005. That skid was a six-game slide; a loss tonight would put the 2000-01 Wildcats on the clock. (Thankfully, if that's the word you'd like to use, the Cats will have to completely collapse to match the next level of ignominy: the 12-game losing streak in 2000 that finally cost Tom Asbury his job.)

But let's not focus on that, shall we? The reality is that the Cats are facing a team which they were able to solve on the road last month. The Marcus Foster Experience appears to still be sidelined, but while Oklahoma has reeled off five straight wins, they still have matchup problems with K-State. With good fortune, the Wildcats can once again exploit that -- and Weber's historical success against Lon Kruger doesn't hurt, either.

Go Cats!
