The Kansas State Wildcats pay a visit to Norman on Saturday to face the Oklahoma Sooners in a significant Big 12 early season conflict. The time of the first kick in Oklahoma Memorial Stadium has been adjusted to 7:50 ET to accommodate national television coverage by FOX. For all the guys out there, I highly recommend the pregame show featuring Erin Andrews. This is of course for informational purposes only.
Kansas State (3-0) is ranked No. 15 in the country, but may have been looking ahead to this one after a mistake filled 35-21 win against little North Texas. Wildcat QB Collin Klein, ranked No. 9 in the nation, may have saved the day by throwing for 230 yards and 2 touchdowns and rushing for another 85 and a TD. For you math majors out there that would be 315 yards of total offense and 3 scores by him alone. Overall, the Cats gave up a 143-145 deficit in rushing yards, after holding a 612-135 edge in their first two games.
Oklahoma (2-0) had no such concerns against Florida A&M with the No. 5 Sooners emerging victorious 69-13. They did, however, have a single force accounting for much of their offense, too, in RB Damien Williams. Williams ran for 156 yards and 4 touchdowns. The Sooners have 553 rushing yards and 535 passing yards so far this year.
These teams are both averaging 46 points a game. Oklahoma's defense is slightly better allowing just 10 points to Kansas States 14. The Sooners have scored 43, 58, 42, and 58 points in their last four meetings against the Wildcats.
Oklahoma is 6-1 ATS when they are the favorite of fewer than 17 points and facing an opponent with a winning record. They are also 24-10 ATS at home. Kansas State is 10-3 ATS recently, and 14-5 ATS as the road underdog.
Oklahoma is a solid 14 point favorite in Norman on a $110/$100 moneyline. The same moneyline applies to the over/under of 58.5 total points.
