K-State vs. Oklahoma State: How to Watch

New, comment

Home teams have dominated the series in recent years. Will that continue today?

NCAA Football: Iowa State at Oklahoma State Alonzo Adams-USA TODAY Sports

The game: The Wildcats (5-3, 3-2 Big 12, unranked) face the Oklahoma State Cowboys (6-2, 4-1, ranked 22nd in the AP and coaches polls and 18th in the College Football Playoff rankings) in the 63rd matchup of these longtime conference opponents. The Wildcats will look to sustain momentum after defeating Texas and Iowa State in back-to-back weeks, while the Cowboys look to stay in control of their own destiny for at least a share of a Big 12 championship. A year ago, the Cowboys kicked a go-ahead field goal in the final minute to defeat K-State 36-34. The series is tied 6-6 since 1998, with the home team winning 10 of those games.

Odds: Online oddsmakers have K-State as a favorite by about a field goal, 2.5 or 3 points, with an over/under of 56. That amounts to a projection of a 29.5-26.5 Wildcat victory.

Kickoff: 2:30 p.m. CDT, Saturday, Nov. 5, at Bill Snyder Family Stadium (capacity 50,000) in beautiful Manhattan, Kansas. The National Weather Service forecasts a high of 73 degrees with mostly sunny skies.

Television: ABC in Big 12 markets or ESPN 2 elsewhere.

Radio: K-State Sports Network with Wyatt Thompson, Stan Weber, and Matt Walters.
