NCAAF Game Preview: No. 9 Oklahoma Sooners (6-1, 3-1 Big 12) at No. 8 Kansas State Wildcats (7-0, 4-0)

October 29, 2011

No one is paying much attention to Kansas State among the nation’s unbeaten teams, but the Wildcats can stamp themselves as national title contenders if they can pull the upset of preseason No. 1 Oklahoma on Saturday afternoon in the Little Apple. The Sooners are 13.5-point betting favorites on WagerWeb.com.

Oklahoma’s loss to Texas Tech last week dampered national enthusiasm for this game, but there’s no such occurrence in Manhattan. The undefeated Wildcats are double-digit underdogs, but K-State has thrived in that role this season. This contrast of offensive styles and speeds should be fascinating.

Texas Tech put an end to the Sooners’ 39-game home winning streak last Saturday by posting a 41-38 win in front of a stunned crowd in Norman. OU’s last loss at home came against TCU in the 2005 season opener, and the Sooners are now 75-3 in Norman under current head coach Bob Stoops. Oklahoma, though, hasn’t dropped back-to-back conference games since a four-game slide in October 1998.

Sooners QB Landry Jones is coming off a 412-yard, five-touchdown performance against Texas Tech, but he was just 30 of 55 through the air and tossed a costly interception. He’ll be going against a vastly improved Wildcats defense that ranks first in the Big 12 and 29th nationally, led by LB Arthur Brown and DB Nigel Malone.

Bill Snyder’s Kansas State squad is off to its best start since 1999 when it began the season with nine straight wins. The Wildcats whipped in-state rival Kansas last weekend, 59-21, earning them their fourth conference win in the process. K-State opened the season with a narrow 10-7 win over FCS foe Eastern Kentucky, but has averaged 37.5 ppg since.

Despite being undefeated, the Wildcats own the lowest-rated offense in the Big 12, averaging 354.7 yards. Much of their offensive success comes on the ground, as they rank third with 213.9 yards per game. QB Collin Klein and running back John Hubert are the main reason for that with 670 and 637 yards, respectively. Klein’s 14 rushing touchdowns lead the conference, and he has completed 59.4 percent of his passes for 934 yards with eight scores and three interceptions.

The Sooners have won four straight in the series.
