How to Watch: Oklahoma at K-State

The Wildcats have a chance to give alumni a great homecoming gift.

NCAA Football: West Virginia at Oklahoma Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

It is homecoming weekend, which means at least the tailgating for the football game should be fun as K-State and Oklahoma clash.

The Game

The undefeated Oklahoma Sooners (7-0, 4-0 Big 12, No. 5/5) visit the Kansas State Wildcats (4-2, 1-2 Big 12, NR/NR). An Oklahoma win keeps the Sooners on track for a likely appearance in the College Football Playoff, while a Wildcat victory would give Chris Klieman a signature win in his first season in Manhattan and put K-State in the driver’s seat for a bowl game, and maybe even a good one.


It wasn’t pretty, but the Wildcats put together a 24-17 victory a week ago against TCU. Meanwhile, the Sooner Schooner crashing (literally) didn’t foretell bad fortune for Oklahoma, as they ran roughshod over West Virginia, 52-14.

The Sooners hold a 76-19-4 advantage in the series, including 38-10-1 in Manhattan. In last year’s installment, Oklahoma came away with a 51-14 victory.


The consensus among oddsmakers is that Oklahoma is about a 23.5-point favorite, and the over/under is about 59 points. That adds up to a Vegas prediction of a final score around 41-18, Oklahoma.


The game is scheduled to kick off at 11 a.m. Saturday at Bill Snyder Family Stadium (capacity 50,000) in Manhattan. The forecast calls for a high temperature of 63 degrees with light wind out of the southwest.


Single tickets are available scattered throughout the stadium, but only one section has seats available together, right in the corner. Tickets are available online here.


Bob Wischusen (play-by-play), Dan Orlovsky (analyst), and Allison Williams (sidelines) will call the game for ABC.


The K-State Sports Network’s A team of Wyatt Thompson (play-by-play), Stan Weber (analyst), and Matt Walters (sidelines) will call the game for radio. In addition to terrestrial radio, the game will be carried on Sirius channel 136, XM Channel 200, and the TuneIn app.
