How to Watch: K-State football vs. Oklahoma State

The Wildcats look to right the ship against the Cowboys.

With a dreadful start to Big 12 play, the Kansas State Wildcats look to turn around their fortunes today during homecoming.

The Game

K-State (2-4, 0-3 Big 12) tries to keep up with or slow down the high-scoring offense of the Oklahoma State Cowboys (4-2, 1-2 Big 12). The Cowboys have been held below 40 points only once, a 41-17 loss to Texas Tech.


A week ago, K-State gave up a field goal in the closing seconds to lose to Baylor, while Oklahoma State failed to complete a comeback attempt against Iowa State.

The Cowboys lead the all-time series 39-25, but the teams are tied with 7 wins apiece since the formation of the Big 12. A year ago, Skylar Thompson led K-State to a big lead over the Cowboys through three quarters, and the defense did just enough to secure the 45-40 victory in Stillwater.


Kickoff is at 11 a.m. CDT at Bill Snyder Family Stadium (50,000 official capacity) in Manhattan, Kansas.


Depending on the oddsmaker, Oklahoma State is a 7- or 7.5-point favorite over K-State, with an over/under of 61.5 or 62. That projects around a 34-27 victory for the Cowboys.


Kevin Brown (play-by-play) and Andre Ware (analyst) will call the game on ESPNU.


Wyatt Thompson (play-by-play), Stan Weber (analyst), and Matt Walters (sidelines) will call the game for radio on the K-State Sports Network, Sirius Channel 119, XM Channel 199, and the TuneIn app.

My Prediction

Bill Snyder pulls Thompson with the Wildcats down 14-10, and Hunter Hall leads the offense on a successful comeback while dropped passes plague the Cowboys. K-State wins, 34-28, and the quarterback controversy only deepens.
