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:
• Who: AP/Coaches No. 3 OU (1-0, 0-0 Big 12); Kansas State (0-1, 0-0)
• Kickoff: 11 a.m., Saturday | Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium
• TV: FOX
• Line: Not available
• Radio: KRXO-FM 107.7
• Series: OU leads 74-20-4
• Perspective: OU fell to Kansas State 48-41 last season in Manhattan, Kansas. It was the Sooners’ lone loss en route to a third consecutive College Football Playoff appearance. The odds are in favor of an OU revenge win — the Sooners have yet to lose to Kansas State in back-to-back seasons since 2000.
