Following its first bye week of the season, Oklahoma opens Big 12 play with Kansas State on Saturday.

The Sooners (1-0) handled their lone nonconference contest against FCS Missouri State with ease, winning 48-0 on Sept. 12. The Wildcats (0-1) did not enjoy a similar dominant performance the same weekend, losing to the Sun Belt Conference’s Arkansas State 35-31.

Here’s a quick look at the Wildcats:
