Although K-State has had success against the Sooners, it hasn’t been at home.

This season has not been what either of these teams hoped it would be. For K-State, the disappointments require no mention. For Oklahoma, it’s all about Iowa State.

But in Manhappiness, there’s just one important thing for us all to remember. We are to Oklahoma as Texas A&M and Baylor are to us: the team that ruined everything. And, you know, that’s worth something. Should K-State win today, it would put Oklahoma’s hopes to finish in first place in the Big 12 on life support with one game yet to play in October, and that’s a critical blow to a team that came in with national championship aspirations and a Heisman front-runner at quarterback.

The game

Kansas State (3-3, 1-3 Big 12) hosts the 9th-ranked Oklahoma Sooners (5-1, 2-1 Big 12). The all-time series is, of course, still heavily in OU’s favor thanks to the Lost Half-Century; the Sooners have a 74-19-4 advantage. It’s “only” 11-5 since the Big 12 was formed. As everyone is probably aware, despite a pair of wins in Norman over the last five years, K-State has not beaten Oklahoma in Manhattan since the John Blake era began in 1996.

Odds

Oklahoma opened as a 13 point favorite, and it hasn’t changed too much; they’re now -14. The total is 55, which means Vegas expects Oklahoma to win 35-21 or so. OddsShark’s computer projection is a little more favorable, expecting a 44-34 win for the Sooners.

Kickoff

Saturday, October 12 at 3:00pm CT, Bill Snyder Family Stadium (50,000) in Manhattan, Kansas.

Tickets

It’s sold out, but the Wildcats’ struggles have made it a relatively cheap get on the secondary market. You can snag standing room for just 12 bucks, while upper deck seats start at $18 and only a handful of those exceed the $30 mark. Downstairs, there are a bunch of seats open for $35 or less, but if you want the good seats down low on the K-State sideline you can expect to shell out anywhere from $55-$100.

Television

FOX proper, which means Gus Johnson, Joel Klatt, and Jenny Taft.

Radio

K-State Sports Network, with Wyatt Thompson, Stan Weber, and Matt Walters, also available via satellite on Sirius channel 81. (No XM this week, apparently.) The Oklahoma call with Toby Rowland, Merv Johnson, Teddy Lehman, and Chris Plank blankets the state of Oklahoma — as well as Fort Smith, Ark., and (grr) Wichita and Liberal. Traitors.
