The Wildcats start the Big 12 season with a crucial road test.
The Kansas State Wildcats (3-0, 0-0 Big 12, No. 22/24 Coaches/AP) hit the road to face the Oklahoma State Cowboys (3-1, 0-1 Big 12, RV/RV) in a clash of styles. Despite new leadership, K-State retains a deliberate pace with an eye toward ball control, while Oklahoma State retains an offense based around a frantic pace. Despite being early in the conference portion of the season, this game potentially has big ramifications for determining who goes to the Big 12 Championship Game.
The Wildcats were inactive last week, but two weeks ago earned a hard-fought 31-24 victory on the road against Mississippi State. The Cowboys last week lost a close game on the road at Texas, 36-30.
Oklahoma State leads the series between the two teams 39-26, but K-State holds an 8-7 lead in Big 12 play. Last year K-State won 31-12 in a game dominated by Alex Barnes (who racked up 232 yards from scrimmage and 4 rushing touchdowns.
The consensus from Las Vegas oddsmakers is Oklahoma State favored by 4 to 5 points, with an over/under of 60 or 60.5. That suggests a score around 32-28, Cowboys.
The game is scheduled to kick off at 6 p.m. Saturday at Boone Pickens (RIP, T. Boone) Stadium, capacity 55,509, in Stillwater, Okla.
