Kansas State vs Oklahoma: Open Game Thread

It’s Homecoming in the Little Apple, hopefully the Wildcats can spring an upset.

It’s Homecoming time at Kansas State. Homecoming generally means a bunch of extra fun and festivities, a parade, and generally good times. Except that the Oklahoma Sooners are in town looking to spoil the fun.

And spoil it they may, at least on the football field. These Sooners are good. Led by their third-straight Heisman contender at QB, and the explosive offense finally coupled with a decent defense, the 2019 Sooners are looking like legitimate national title contenders. Of course, it’s not like Wildcat fans are going to be too upset. We know OU is good, and this Wildcat team isn’t going to even be a Big 12 title contender this year, but losing always stinks.

Of course, anything can happen in college football. Heck, Illinois beat Wisconsin just last week. The Wildcats just need to play their game — and hopefully catch a few breaks. OU hasn’t looked invincible, but i’s going to take a perfect game from the Wildcats to catch the Sooners off-guard. That means, at minimum, no beating yourself (no turnovers, limit penalties) and controlling the things you can control (like making tackles and not just trying to hit guys).

It’s a longshot, but there’s no reason why the Wildcats couldn’t win this game.

Be sure and check out our pre-game coverage, including AMS’s How to Watch post with full details on catching today’s game, and TB’s Kicking the Tires preview of the Sooners.

We’ve got the early game today, with an 11am CDT kickoff being aired for a national audience on ABC with Bob Wischusen (play-by-play), Dan Orlovsky (analyst), and Allison Williams (sidelines) on the call. The game should also be available streaming via WatchESPN.

If for some reason you don’t get ABC, or can’t access the stream, the game can be heard across the 39-station K-State Sports Network with Wyatt Thompson (play-by-play), former K-State quarterback Stan Weber (analyst), and Matt Walters (sidelines) calling the action. The game will also be on Sirius channel 136, XM Channel 200, and available on the TuneIn app. Live stats are available at, and Twitter updates (@KStateFB) will also be a part of the coverage.

Go Cats!
